DIY solar filters for camera

From our earlier post on the topic, here is how we made our solar filter holders for some of our cameras.

Plastic bottleFirst we got plastic soya sauce or pepper bottles from the local sundries store. The kind you find in kopitiams or the local coffee shops.

They’re made of soft plastic, so they’re easy to cut up with scissors.

To start, we cut a hole in the bottom, and cut off the edge of the top as well.

For our filters, we exposed a roll of black-and-white film to light and got that developed it. The silver nitrates in the film will serve as the protective filter for the camera.

Cut two layers of the developed film together and glue them down to the plastic holder.

And voilà — protective filters for your camera.

Secure this to your camera with tape. Works great for digital cameras and handicams.
