I want to get my wife hooked on the analogue/lomography virus as well! So I need some help which camera to get her!
So for Christmas and/or Sinterklaas (for those unfamiliar with this Dutch holiday, see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinterklaas or the infinitely funnier David Sedaris: [Video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCUHTDrca4shttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCUHTDrca4s] I want to give my wife one of the awesome lomography cameras.
I was thinking of the Diana Mini White: http://shop.lomography.com/cameras/diana-f-cameras/diana-mini-cameras/diana-mini-flash-package-white
Or the La Sardina El Capitan: http://shop.lomography.com/cameras/la-sardina-cameras/la-sardina-camera-bundles/la-sardina-el-capitan-film
Why these two? Well, there are both easy, light and easy to get a hang of.
Now the advantage of the Diana Mini would be the size.. Also there’s the possibility to do half frames. And I love her bigger sister. So I was wondering can you use the accessories of the Diana F+ for the Diana Mini?
The advantage of the La Sardina El Capitan is that it is a very different camera from the ones I already have (Diana F+, Fisheye2, Spinner 360, Sprocket Rocket, Holga mini, Canon Eos 50E, Fujifilm Instax210 and some digital cameras). It doesn’t do half frames, but it can do multiple exposures and role the film back. Also I know she finds it really cute..
So which camera to choose? Any advice is more than welcome!!
