    I taped my Canon iXus to an old Argus Super 75 that I bought on a flea market. It takes 620 rolls so this is a nice way to have a little fun with it.

    Here's another one where I used my beer as a yellow filter.

    Almost right, this is Palm beer.
    But trying out different filters and drinking them after use might be an interesting experiment :mrgreen:

    We had a thread on Feb 7, 2010 about using the old Kodak Duaflex in this manner. I wrote: The "hot, new thing to do" with the old Duaflexes is to take digital photos off of the viewfinder screen image! Seriously--I kid you not--there is a growing movement of people who have cobbled together tubes of various types, which allow a lens to be postioned well-centered over the viewing screen. I saw a how-to article on Shutterbug magazine's web site not long ago. This is called TtV or Through the VIewfinder photography. Flickr has a discussion on it Flickr: Discussing What makes ttv photographs so appealing in Through The Viewfinder

    The November, 2009 issue of Shutterbug magazine had an article on TtV Shutterbug: TtV Photography and the article is entitled "TtV Photography; The Duaflex Lives Again".

    I had a Duaflex II many years ago. Who knew it might once again become a useful piece of camera gear!

    Yeah, sure. I saw this somewhere a few months ago and stored it somewhere in the back of my mind to try it some day and then I found that little Argus on a flea market. The beer filter is a unique invention, done today by yours truely :mrgreen:

    Where it arises in conversation I shall credit the innovation of the TTV Beer filter (yellow/orange/red) to Jeroen of Amsterdam from this day on! Proost!
