Who doesn’t feel it’s painfully missing? A multiple exposure switch on your beloved ColorSplash.
If you don’t mind a few small holes in the face of your white spaceship – or you can accept it in order to make colorful multiple exposures with your ColorSplash – Here’s a little tip.
All you need are two fine mechanics/jewelers screwdrivers, one flat head to pry with and one Phillips head to unscrew the body. A cordless drill with a 5mm metal or wood drill bit and a black or white film pot you probably have around the house to prevent the screws from being lost.
First, open the camera as usual. ATTENTION: NOT REAL FILM INSIDE! Then you screw the six screws from the case. There are four short screws in the film compartment and two longer for the cover. Off to the film pot with them.
Then you carefully pry up the black ring at the end of the flash.
Just a little, and remember, it’s all plastic!!
Now you can carefully divide the ColorSplash.
Watch out for the battery door and the viewing window, they can fall out.
Now you can see the mechanism on the front of the camera.
The first picture shows the charged state, the second “relaxed”.
Try it out with a key or something. However, I have two of the camera, and both have somewhat different insides, which is perhaps based on the year of production. The mechanism is very similar and the conversion went well in both.
Using the cordless drill, drill away the lower half of the “SPLA” on the ColorSplash logo, Note! Risk of injury!
Reassemble everything and you’re done!
Have fun creating!
