How to make a black kodak clone: 6 DIY techniques
Here are the best and most common DIY steps for making a black Kodak clone, from the simple to the complex.
Read on for tips on how to create the most authentic Kodak black camera clone.
Cut the hood.
While the hood of the camera will need to be cut down, it is a great way to save time and effort and can save you a ton of money.
Cut a piece of plywood or a metal pipe, which can be attached to a piece that will be used for the hood, and then hang it from the outside of the frame, making sure to secure it at the top of the hood with duct tape.
You can then trim the edges to match the original.
Measure and cut the hood back.
If you’re making a new black kodiak clone (or if you’re looking for one that has been used before), you’ll need to make the hood measurement as well.
Start with a piece measuring 5 inches long, and cut a piece as long as your original hood.
Cut that piece into pieces and hang them on the outside, making a hole in the side to hold the hood and a little piece of duct tape in the center of the top edge of the mask.
This way, when you attach the hood to the camera, you’ll be able to see the whole thing, so you can measure the distance between the hood piece and the lens and adjust the size accordingly.
Mount the hood on a tripod.
Mounting the hood onto a tripod will also help reduce the amount of effort needed to attach the mask, but there are a few tricks that will help make the process a lot easier.
First, make sure to use a tripod with a low-resistance rubber mounting pad, so that the camera can still be mounted safely on the wall.
The other trick is to mount the hood in the same spot as the camera.
If the camera is positioned above the hood assembly, the camera might tilt a little bit while you’re taking photos, and the hood might pop off at some point.
You could use some sort of bracket to help hold the camera in place, but the bracket will likely just pop off if you do it this way.
The next step is to attach your mask to the hood using a tripod mount.
When you attach your camera to the mask assembly, you want to be sure that the tripod is firmly attached to the frame.
Make sure that your camera is securely fastened to the tripod mount, and that there is no wobbling in the tripod.
Make the mask fit perfectly into the lens, and mount the camera into the hood securely, making the mask and camera as snug as possible.
If your mask assembly isn’t as snug, you might have to adjust the height of the lens mount before attaching the mask to your camera.
Install the hood mount.
Once your hood is attached, it’s time to install the hood mounting mechanism on the hood camera.
Mount it on the frame with the hood facing up and the camera on top.
Make certain that the mask is securely mounted to the lens assembly and that the lens is securely held to the top lens of your camera, so the hood can be tilted slightly to get the camera to mount correctly.
Attach the hood as you normally would, and adjust your hood as needed.
You’ll want to make sure that you have the hood attached to both sides of the rear lens assembly, so it will stay secure while your camera’s lens is mounted on the camera body.
Instantly change the camera’s focus.
With the hood mounted, the mask will no longer be visible when you switch between photos and videos, but that’s not always a big deal.
Make a small adjustment to the focus adjustment dial on the back of your lens and tilt it to bring the camera focus down, and you’ll get the best results.
If everything looks OK with your hood, you can now start taking pictures of the new camera.
Make it easy on yourself by adjusting the hood at least one turn before you start taking photos.
Make adjustments as necessary until you’re happy with the camera image quality, then remove the hood from the lens.
When the hood is completely removed, you should have a full-size black camera with an accurate focus.
If not, you may have to buy a new hood.
Turn the camera back on.
When your hood camera is turned on, you will notice that you now have a fully-fledged black camera.
You will also notice that the hood’s hood is no longer attached to your lens.
This is the first time that your hood can actually be turned on and off, so make sure you take care when you turn it on.
This can be tricky, but with proper care, you shouldn’t have any problems turning the hood off or on at all.
Upload your photos and video.
If all else fails, you could always just download your photos,
