The 100++ Mysterious Accessory, Never Miss A Beautiful Shot!

"Hmm, what does 100+ stand for?" You might ask. This is a tiny yet interesting accessory that you would ever wish to have, allow me to introduce to you!

The origin of this accessory has to be traced to a journey where I was searching for a missing camera cover, for an old camera I bought without one.

“Do you have any interesting stuff in your shop?” I asked the shop keeper after purchasing a camera cover. The shop keeper, an heart-warming old man rummaged through his store, and showed me everything that he felt that might be “interesting” to me. It was then I discovered this tiny unit.

“What so “interesting” about this?" I asked. It was an unit to add on the PC flash adapter, You could add as many as you like!

Suddenly, a lightbulb appeared my head! Let’s use this unit to put two cameras together!

I name this small unit as “100++”, with this you could pile cameras all the way up! It is the best friends of all analogue cameras, either it be 35mm or 120mm, the cameras could be connected as one, and it is very steady to hold.

You might ask the reasons of combining two cameras as one. An example is a La Sardina:La Sardina & LC-Wide combo: while doing long exposure (or light trails) with La Sardina’s ‘B’ mode, you could use LC-Wide to take normal shots. Now you would get two different kinds of shots without having the trouble of switching the cameras. More importantly, you would not lose any precious moments again. You could also putting the combo on a tripod to take photographs simultaneously, how cool is that!

Pair up with pinhole camera!

Pairing up with the big camera, not to let the beautiful moments slip.

I am so lucky to find such great accessory in the beginning of year! I would continue my analogue shooting all the way with his tiny little thing!

    I ordered one few months ago, but it never arrived :(
    I wanted to use it to make EBS Symetric splitzers (see the tipster below)

    The idea was to attach a digital camera to my beloved analog camera, to record the exact "framing" of the 1st shot. So after turning the film to expose the other side, I could frame the 2nd picture exactly in the same way by comparing the 1st photo of the digital camera and what the digital camera points at when I'm taking the 2nd picture.

    Not clear? If it works, I'll do a tipster with pictures and everything!
