[Tutorial] How to prevent your pictures from light !

Messagepar Lulux » jeu. 09 septembre 2010 / 19:19 pm

Hi everyone !

As you all know, the new Impossible films are highly sensitive to light, and we are all looking for solutions in order to prevent the pictures from light.
So we had a look to all the solutions that were already given and we found a new one, and we wanted to show how we manage to do it, with pictures and explanations.

Please do not hesitate to tell us what you think about our idea !

This tutorial is also available in French, of course, but here in English especially for our friends from Impossible and for Instant Lovers from all over the world!

So let’s go on fiddling !

Ingredients

Image

- One SX-70
- One 600 camera (won’t be affected after the do-it-yourself)
- Some glue
- One pack of film (Don’t use a brand new pack, just insert the pictures you love inside an empty pack)
- A pencil
- A knife
- Some black adhesive (or pink for ladies)
- Some Looooooooove

Cooking time

Ten minutes max. (That’s a super recipe !)

Do-It-Yourself !

1. Looking for the plastic sheet

Take your beloved 600 camera (as far as we are concerned, it was a 636 Talking Camera, who used to moan instead of talking)

Image

All you have to do is to put out the red plastic cover, so you open it.

Image

The small pins hold this plastic cover, just lift and push them to untie the red plastic cover.

Image

Image

Image

Just take it off ! YIHAAAA !

Image

Image

You can of course use your 600 camera, but there is no plastic anymore! AHAH! (but just buy another one! EASY !)

2. Looking for the best place

Insert the pack of your pictures in your favorite SX 70.

Image

Let the picture come out, don’t touch or remove it.

Image

Place the plastic sheet on the edge of your SX 70, in order to cover totally the picture that came out of the camera.

Image

With your pencil, mark the best position of the plastic sheet.

Image

Don’t hesitate to test again the right position, because we almost have been had!

Image

Image

(Just have a look at the nail polish : the colour HAS to be the same as the button.)

Image

You can notice that the marks are not centered on the camera, but on the wheels inside the camera. Have a look!

Image

Using strong glue, glue the plastic on your marks.

Image

Image

Image

Shoot and see !

Image

Image

3. Some more work

We thought the do-it-yourself was already done, but we noticed two other problems regarding light if we let the picture under the plastic sheet :

a. The gap on the front of the SX 70

Image

We can see it clearly on this picture

Image

b. The small holes on the plastic sheet, which we can see on this picture too

Image

We have just used some black adhesive to solve this problem.

Image

Image

Image

Now, the picture is very well prevented from light (we have let it develop nicely under the plastic sheet and there are no mark of light on it).
Some samples of picture taken after the do-it-yourself :

Wheel’s position : middle

Image

Wheel’s position : dark

Image

The sea, Wheel’s position : middle

Image

Image

If you don’t want to leave your picture under the plastic sheet, you still have some time to remove it and to take it close to your heart (oooooh), so no stress anymore! :D

We are looking forward to reading your comments !

Big up !

I've looked at clouds from both sides now.

Ici c'est english only ! polahehe
We saw it just now, we didn't know he had already made it. But he didn't go on explaining in a tutorial. No offence to him.
And furthermore, we think he made the same thing, but with the plastic sheet of an Image Camera.

The piece of plastic one in origin of a Spectra is wider.

Covering more the sides, without it being necessary to center it in comparison with the rolls.

Use what you have under the hand, this tuto very well is done. 8)

O M G! What a fantastic tutorial! I can't believe I never thought of it. It's genius to have it stuck on the sx-70 because the picture doesn't stick out all the way like a 600 onestep!

I didn't like the idea from TIP about taping a darkslide to the camera because it lets light in but this method you have shown looks to "hug" the picture so its light proof!

Thank You so much! I can't wait to try this! I have about 5 onesetp camera's so I'll use my most beat up one.

I just tried it and it works great!

I had one problem, I took the black plastic film off my Onestep 600 and it was too small! Yeah smaller than the one in your pictures, about half and inch smaller. So I had to get another 600 camera to get a bigger dark film.

Don't use 636/637 black plastic film, it's too smaller.
