Use electrical tape to build a Horizon Splitzer.

It’s very simple. Use electrical tape to split your Horizon shots… horizontally.

In order to take double exposures with the Horizon (and any other not-supposed-to-take-doubles-camera), take a first shot, and then, while holding the rewind crank and pressing the rewind knob, turn the winding lever. Take a second shot. Note that at the beginning, when you load the film, just after your first shot, you have to turn the rewind crank to get the film well tensed.

Now, I don’t know if there’s something wrong with my Horizon but I always got overlaps. I could have taken a black shot (by putting my hand in front of the lens) in between doubles to avoid it, but I didn’t.

If the tape is too centred, you’ll get a black band (white with negatives) in the split:

Place it away from the centre by about 2 millimeters to get a better fusion:

I also took some doubles with a Canon F1n:

    I'm not sure how I missed this when it was published. It is pure genius my friend! Alas, my Perfekt is acting up (5 rolls blank on vacation!!!), and will need some attention before I try this...
