    Tutto sulla Diana Mini

    Ho preso la Diana Mini appena è stata messa in vendita e mi sono divertito un mondo a scattare con questa macchina. Compatta e luminosa, questa piccola fotocamera è più di un semplice modello in scala ridotta della molto popolare Diana F+. La Diana Mini monta rullini da 35mm ed ha una sua lente incorporata.

    Scaling the Great Wall at Jia Yu Guan

    The Great Wall of China stretches more than 8800km and there are several starting points to scale it. Most tour groups visiting Beijing will visit the North Pass also known as Badaling. However, if you want to get away from the crowd, and enjoy the sight of the Great Wall without the pushing and hustling, I recommend you to start at Jia Yu Guan Pass.

    Die Diana 20mm Fisheye Linse

    Was die Diana F+ aus den anderen Lomography-Kameras hervorstechen lässt, ist die Möglichkeit, die Linse auszuwechseln. Mit einem Aufgebot an Linsen, sind die Optionen schier endlos. Wenn ich mich für eine Linse für die Diana F+ entscheiden müsste, kommt mir die Fisheye Linse in den Sinn.

    Fave Childhood Hangout: Fun at the Playground

    Growing up in the 80s, life was so much simpler. There was no internet, no mobile phones and no network games. As a kid, my choices for entertainment were pretty limited. A trip to the movie was an indulgence and most of the time I just hung out with my neighbourhood friends. One of my favourite hangout places is the playground.

    One thing that makes the Diana F+ stands out from the other lomography cameras is the option to change its lens. With an array of lens to choose from, the options are endless. However, if I have to choose only one lens for the Diana F+, the fisheye lens would be the one that comes to mind.
