Use film canisters to create a splitzer for your DianaF+.

Photo by icuresick

What you need:

  • Black film canister
  • Cutter
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Rubber Band
The materials

First, cut the black film canister in half

Then, measure around 1cm from the mouth of the film canister. Use the rubber as a marker. Cut smile strips from where you first cut the canister up to the rubber marker (see photo), so you can easily create a 1cm splitzer. Finally, cut the canister cover in half (much better if you have the black canister cover).

And now you have a DIY Splitzer from empty film canister:
