Diana Click Chart

This is an accompaniment to my tipster article Load Your 120 Diana with 35mm Film without Using the Special 35mm Back http://www.lomography.com/magazine/tipster/2011/03/18/load-your-120-diana-with-35mm-film-without-using-the-special-35mm-back

Below is a chart which shows you how much to turn your film winder on a 120 Diana camera when you’ve loaded it with 35mm film without using the special 35mm back.

As there is no counter on the 120 Diana for 35mm film you’ll need to make a marking on your winder and your camera to denote a zero value and then turn the winder as instructed below to ensure that you move on to a new frame everytime.
