Diana Multi Pinhole Operator : A First Touch

5

The Diana Multi Pinhole Operator (MPO) is the perfect companion to all Lomographers who love pinhole photography and it offers even more fun than traditional style pinhole cameras!

Pinhole photography just got more fun with the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator! It offers a switch that allows you to choose between 1, 2 or 3 pinholes, a set of interchangeable multi-coloured filters and an easy to operate switch to open/close the pinhole(s) that makes a cable release unnecessary.

Mix and match the choice of pinholes and the colored filters and you’ll be surprised at the crazy, funky and awesome photos. If you are going for the good old single pinhole without the extra mad colours just switch to the single pinhole mode and remove the color filter and you’re all ready to go!

For those who ain’t good with estimating exposure times, worry not. There is a simple exposure guide at the back of the user manual that you can cut out and keep in your wallet. Just be brave and experiment by adding/reducing the recommended exposure times based on your gut feel and you’ll be fine. I admit that I was dead worried when I was shooting my first few rolls but then the photos turned out pretty fine!

What’s even better is the choice of medium that you can use on this camera. You can either use medium format film, 35mm film (with the Diana 35mm back) or even Instax film (with the Instax back)!!! Endless possibilities for days and years of fun!

    My Pinhole F Cardboard Camera Inspired By the Diana F+ Camera

    I love the different styles of cameras that Lomography has, but I also like to create my own cardboard cameras that use pinholes to be able to take pictures using traditional film. This time I created the Pinhole F, a camera inspired by the Diana F+ and shoots 12 pinhole photos using 120 film.

    Pushing Boundaries: So I Heard You Like Multiple Exposures

    My name is Amber Valentine and I have a confession to make: I’m not really a photographer. I have a website full of photographs, a bookshelf full of cameras, film waiting to be developed, and a wall full of framed pictures I’ve taken. Even so, I don’t really consider myself a photographer per se. I think that Lomography is more about the experimentation and the fun of film than it is about the photography, and that experimentation is part of the reason I have embraced Lomography so.

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.
