Goodbye My Beloved Diana

After almost one year accompany me, she's broke...

back to early 2012, I found a forum who loves toy camera so much. Well, I thought film camera has dead. But when I looked to the results of these cameras are so beautiful! I wonder, how film camera could produce such an amazing picture. there were two cameras that seems to be popular in that group. Holga and Diana!
I love square format, but I don’t like medium format camera (at that time) because it’s only produce 12 pictures and the film was expensive. So I put my choice to the Diana Mini!
I tooked it everywhere I go

All of my photos that being my fav is this photo!

A few weeks ago, the shutter was broke, and it open all the the time. I tooked my diana for service two times. When the service was done and I want to try push the shutter, it broke again T.T
I’m surrender now for fighting my Diana. But I will remember that time, time that we ever beeen together :)
