Through the Viewfinder adventure

Okay, I have jumped onboard another fun photography craze discovered on Flickr, called Through the Viewfinder or TTV. It kindof reminds me of the fun, unpredictability that I had with Polaroid Time Zero Film manipulation!

So, I started out with finding a Duaflex camera on ebay, and then I met the friendly seller at a local Starbucks to pick up the camera! Then, I followed these very clear directions provided by Russ Morris. And Voila! Out into the garden I went to give it a whirl. Point your digital camera through the tube (contraption), which then focuses through the viewfinder of the Duaflex, to take a TTV shot!!! Very easy, and now I am sure I have yet another addicting hobby!
Thank you for the help and inspiration, Flickr friends!

Crazy! I've never heard of such a thing. Pretty sure my parents still have a duaflex and I'm visiting them next week. Do you need to use a SLR to control the focus?
