[Tutorial] How to prevent your pictures from light !
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 !
- 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
Ten minutes max. (That’s a super recipe !)
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)
All you have to do is to put out the red plastic cover, so you open it.
The small pins hold this plastic cover, just lift and push them to untie the red plastic cover.
Just take it off ! YIHAAAA !
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.
Let the picture come out, don’t touch or remove it.
Place the plastic sheet on the edge of your SX 70, in order to cover totally the picture that came out of the camera.
With your pencil, mark the best position of the plastic sheet.
Don’t hesitate to test again the right position, because we almost have been had!
(Just have a look at the nail polish : the colour HAS to be the same as the button.)
You can notice that the marks are not centered on the camera, but on the wheels inside the camera. Have a look!
Using strong glue, glue the plastic on your marks.
Shoot and see !
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
We can see it clearly on this picture
b. The small holes on the plastic sheet, which we can see on this picture too
We have just used some black adhesive to solve this problem.
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
Wheel’s position : dark
The sea, Wheel’s position : middle
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!
We are looking forward to reading your comments !
Big up !
