Easy and Fast SPLITZ with Your Fingers

Have forgotten your LC-A splitzer or can't find it once again? Or do you just have to be fast, with no time to mount and set your splitzer? That's not a problem. You don't need the splitzer all the time to do the splitz. You can use your finger!

Use one of your fingers to cover the part of the lens where you don’t want to expose. I tried once when i forgot the splitzer at home, and it worked great. You just have to be a bit careful not to touch the lens, but that should not be a problem with the L-CA, because the lens is on the inside of the body. Sometimes you get a bit of a red/brown tone in your image, especially when you shoot against strong light. I think that’s because of your skin that reflects or lets the light through somehow.

All the pics are splitzed with my finger.

Have fun doing the easy splitz!

    If I am organised I use a piece of electrical tape which is pretty much free too but this is even easier. Beautiful photos!
