I built one cam with two pieces of glass (one for the camera lens and one for the flash).  Then I built one with one picture frame glass (1 piece).  I noticed no milky pictures from flash bleed on either roll of test pics.  Is there something I am missing?  I am replacing my 2 piece tonight with a one piece glass and thought I would ask before the glue dried.

My first cam had one solid piece, I noticed no bleeding. My second cam had two piece's but the bleeding was coming over the top. I think I got it fixed. Next roll will tell.

So it really comes down to fully insulating the flash from the lens. right?  I made the flash hole larger on this cam and had to replace the glass. I found that with the OWL (not PF) the flash worked a lot better with the larger hole.

To solve this problem I used an old film cannister and cut it out to fit around the flash area. It works very well to keep the flash controlled out of the box.

PS. make sure that you use the solid black film cannister.
