Keep Them Safe


Keep your multi Pinhole gels safe and ready to use!

First of all you will need a 35mm film canister and a sharp craft knife. This is really easy to do and a really simple idea.

1. Remove one of the plugs holding your strap on to your camera.
2. Mark on the 35mm case two lines on it just wide enough to put the strap through.
3. Cut the case along the lines with a craft knife
4. Feed the strap through the two holes.
5. Re-attach the strap and place your gels inside.
6. Put on the cap and add your stickers.

Presto! A handy way to keep your gels safe and ready to use! You will never lose them again!

    Good idea, really! In this case you can never leave them at home. Like me, went to Brazil, bring the Diana but forget the filterset at home :(

    Good idea. And it can work for the color filters for the Diana F+ as well.

    I imagine this would work for holding film as well ;)

    I guess you could put a whole chain of them on for various things - one for gels, one for film, one for change for the bus...
