After seeing some of the amazing shots people were able to mash together using this lovely camera, I decided to buy myself one. I am on number 3 now and continue to get the same rubbish and faded results.
I had seen many times, the yellow and black body of the splitcam and to say I found it enticing is a massive understatement. I wanted one for ages and had loads of great ideas about all the wonderful mix-ups I would be able to make. When my boyfriend got a job lot of cameras on ebay and this was one of them, I begged him to let me have a go with it. The photos however were a huge disappointment.
I have since had 2 more splitcams, admittedly both second hand, and they have yielded results very similar to this one. I suppose now I have a LC-A and a Diana I could buy a splitzer and see how that works but I have been baffled by the results of the split cam and am reluctant to give in. I have now purchased a brand new one from USA and am waiting for it to arrive. If anybody can give me any tips on how to avoid such rubbish shots with this future camera, any help you can give me would be very much appreciated!
