DIY Splitzer for the Diana Mini

This article shows how to make a simple DIY splitzer for your Diana Mini using only a cap from an old medicine or vitamin bottle.

Have you ever thought of making a splitzer by yourself to save some money? Well, by using just the cap from an old bottle (preferably the one with the flap), we can make one by yourself! I was just in the process of throwing out my empty vitamin bottle. When I noticed the cap looks just about the right size for my Diana Mini, I decided to use it as a splitzer.

So I went to work. I used a pair of scissors and managed to detach the flap lid (because it would be obtrusive, but you could probably leave it on). I also stuffed some tissue paper inside because it wasn’t a perfect fit on the barrel of my Diana Mini. And that’s it! Check out the sample below!

You’ll notice that some part of the picture has a reddish hue. This is because the cap that I used was red so it probably got some of it when I took the first half of the picture. I suggest lining the inside of the cap with black tape or paper to avoid this effect and get perfectly splitted picture! Hope you guys are able to use this tipster!

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
