sorry not many pictures,of analigital camera that i struggle to explain how let alone why.its neither digital or analogue. its pal. basically its a car reversing camera setup inside a camera that retains its film transport system, i read on t'net it couldnt work so i tried it and it nearly works, results at end, this cam still needs tweaking to reduce brightness further , its got a dial for it but it doesnt do it enough

Step 8: Later Additions

increased resistance so screen not as bright, added foam inside to counter any possible light flooding the film compartment. ok so the screen was looking really washed out even with the resistance removed.i guess somethings up with the screen ,and im not about to replace it ,

Step 9: Changing the Polarising Layer

Picture of Changing the Polarising Layer

a small brush with petrol and a razor blade removed the polarizing layer, like a sticker, being careful not to damage the thin glass screen, i did it with the screen on so i could see colour distortions indicating strain on the screen,

luckily enough i have a collection of polarizing layers , it appears that they are not all the same, really its not just turn it 90 degrees, anyway i selected the darkest one with the best contrast,
even tho the image is reversed colours i guess i will get something interesting with colour reversal film. a few dobs of epoxy along the edges hold the thing in place, now looking at the screen at steep viewing angles it goes black insted of white ,hope i get better pictures, ha right
