In honor of our latest additions to the Lomography lineup - the special Gold Edition Diana F+, Diana Mini, and Fisheye No. 2 - we'd like to take you back to the '80s with a guilty pleasure - Spandau Ballet.
YOU. ARE. GOLD! This 1983 hit single remains to be Spandau Ballet’s second most popular song, next to “True”. For those who are too young to remember – Spandau Ballet is one of the pioneers of the New Romantic movement. Characterized by androgynous fashion and cosmetics, the bands under this genre fused synth-pop, rock, and disco in their music.
The original Diana F is a plastic beauty from 1960s Hong Kong. The Diana F+ is a reinterpretation, which is in no way inferior to the old Diana. It´s so versatile with all the optional accessories and lenses like no other lomography camera. And because of this, I will show you what makes this camera so special.

From the simple Vivitar 110 camera he received from his grandmother, Brett Wolff already accumulated close to almost a hundred cameras and accessories in his analog arsenal.
