Make a simple splitzer for your instant camera in a few easy steps. It’s so easy you can do it in a minute. Read on to find out how to make cool Polaroid multiple exposures!
A Polaroid Land Camera is a very fun camera to use. It has bigger photos than Fuji Instax, and you can also get these cameras for a fairly cheap price. One of the perks that I like about this camera is the easy MX shooting. You just have to cock the shutter again and shoot. With that capability, I was struck with an idea to make a Splitzer for the said camera.
What you need:
A film canister that looks exactly like the one in the photo.
1. Cut the canister cap in half. Please be very careful so you don’t cut yourself. You don’t really have to be precise in this.
2. Now you have a half cap of a film canister. What you need to do is press it a bit so it will fit perfectly in the lens ring of your Polaroid Land Camera. At first it will be a bit hard to put but in time it will be as easy as ABC.
3. Now try rotating the lens ring. As it moves, the DIY Splitzer will move too. Now you are ready to try it!
Here are some sample shots using the Splitzer:
Some tips on using the Splitzer:
The Splitzer effect is more easily recognized when you use it for left and right than for top and bottom combination shot.
