    Default Wondering where to get film canister?

    Hello Clubsnap,

    not sure where to post this but i guess it seems like a newbie question for me

    currently saving up to get external flash, in the meantime i am looking for diffuser to diffuse my pop-up flash.

    read online about DIY diffuser using film canister... is there anywhere i can get the canister without purchasing films? probably would be good if someone can give me their old film canister

    for those who dont know what is a film canister can see this

    i have a lot, a while back some kkj asked me for all of them, i said ok

    in the end waste my sms as they never collected the canister from me after bantering about time and date and location.

    anyways, i can give you all of mine, but i'm not in singapore right now

    just ask your friends, i'm sure with the constant lomo craze in singapore nowadays, sure got some people have empty film canisters that they really don't need.

    I have quite a few too.
    Been thinking of hauling all of them to the "recycle plastic" bin.

    your friend doesn't need it to develop photos, can hand the labs naked film canisters. that's how i end up with so many empty ones.

    Are there such things as 120mm film canisters? lol. I feel unsafe to leave my 120mm films lying around.

    thanks karnage for the cannister...
    did some art n craft just now and finally got the cannister in place
    for me it's quite acceptable cos i made some modification... place a white paper in the cannister itself to make it more diffused
