A Homemade Konstruktor Splitzer Tipster!

It's only been a week since the launch of the Konstruktor, but already talented Lomographers are discovering fun new ways to experiment and play with their creative camera. In this tipster, we take you through an easy way to create Splitzer shots with your Konstruktor, a technique already used by our Lomographic heroes Hodachrome and Earlybird.

After you’ve finished building your Konstruktor, the fun has only just begun. There are all kinds of exciting ways to experiment with the camera and creating a home-made Splitzer is one of the easiest! For this tipster, we turned lens caps from the Fisheye No.2 and Diana F+ into Konstruktor splitzers (though of course it should also be possible with tons of different lens caps!). Thanks a lot to Hodachrome, Earlybird and our in-house photographic talent nella for pioneering this tip!

Building a Konstruktor Splitzer Using The Fisheye No.2 Lens Cap

  1. For this tip, you’ll need your Konstruktor, the plastic lens cap from your Fisheye No.2 and a cutting knife.
  2. Remove the strap from your lens cap.
  3. Mark the part you are going to cut out. You will be removing the upper half of the lens cap.
  4. Cut along the marking.
  5. Remove the part you cut out.
  6. All done! You can put your new splitzer on the lens!

Building a Konstruktor Splitzer Using The Diana F+ Lens Cap

  1. You need your Konstruktor, the plastic lens cap from your Diana F+, a cutting knife and something sticky such as blue tack (not shown here).
  2. Mark the part you are going to cut out. You will be removing the upper half of the lens cap.
  3. Cut out the upper half of the lens cap.
  4. Remove the part you cut out.
  5. Get some blue tack, sticky pads or some tape to fix your new splitzer on the lens.
  6. If you use blue tack, fix it around the lens and put the splitzer on top.
  7. All done!

So now you know how to do it – But what about the results? Check these lovely photos out to see!

The Konstruktor is the world’s first Do-It-Yourself 35mm SLR camera. With it, you can easily build your very own camera from scratch. It’s the perfect tool for having fun whilst learning the exciting mechanics behind how analogue photography works. Get yours from the Online Shop or Lomography Gallery Stores Worldwide. Find out more about the camera on the Konstruktor Site.
