How to Make a Splitzer for 52mm Filter Thread

2013-08-04 1

I made my Diana Mini filter adapter to take 52mm filters because all my filters are of that size. But this Splitzer Tipster is so easy that you can make it for any size you need!

Earlier, I made a tipster of how to build the filter thread for Diana Mini. Now it’s time to make a Splitzer that fits that thread.

Things you need:
• Old rotating filter (CPL or gradual gray for example)
• Hammer (flathead)
• Black tape

First you have to carefully break the glass of the filter. Remember to collect all the possible fragments so no-one gets hurt. Take all the glass off the filter. I got bit of luck and the lens just popped right out of the rim without braking.

Put black tape over the turning ring so that you cover exactly half of the filter. Fill other half of the filter completely.

And you are done! Now just screw it on and have some splitzer-fun!
