Tipster of the Week - An Accesory Rediscovered

One of those home made efforts that Stouf made for his black plastic wife, the Holga.

Homemade Holga Splitzer by stouf

I had built this a very long time ago when I was still beginning in Lomography, but I never got nice results with it and it was left under a pile of photographic mess since then. Until I saw results from the Diana+ and the LC-A using the Splitzer: fantastic four project done by Lyocell , Vicuna, Weechonghooi and Grenoouille that I simply got jealous!

It’s made out of wood from a clementine crate, metallic wire and electrical tape. The wood was used to make a frame around the base of the lens (leaving space for the tripod mount and for the camera buttons) that holds a little panel with the wire. Okay, you can’t rotate it like the Splitzer and can only do either the right or left one side of the frame, but it’s still cool, I think. So after I had it dug out, I immediately used it again and took some shots when I was in Québec and Halifax, Canada.
