iPhone diffuser?

Post by Amcrory on December 23rd 2013, 12:25

What's a good way to make a light-diffusing cup for an iphone 5s?

Would a plastic gallon milk jug make a decent material?

Did you try it? haven't had any successful report of a user using a home made diffuser. I think even a thick quality white plastic bag would do the trick but haven't tried. I will try some materials this week and will post the results.

Absolutely - this is a scan of a Fuji 200 negative. Photo is from a 1968 Exakta VX1000 (no light meter). I used MLP with the front-facing camera with a homemade diffuser: a clear film canister cap secured with a rubber band.

Cool!!

I've just tried with a plastic bag, with two plastic slices from a quality bag, not the super thin ones, taped. The measurements were pretty consistent, maybe just a bit underexposed but only about 1/2 stop or 1/3, it can be calibrated anyway. Tomorrow I will do better tests and will check consistency with the color check card. But I think any plastic can do the trick in the end.
I checked with the camera app that no detail passed through, only light. The problem with this flat approach is that is that is more directional than the semi spheric doom. But works!
