Endless Panorama with Diana F+

5

Some sights are best enjoyed when captured with a full panoramic perspective - and the Diana just has that capability to stretch those locations to the far ends of the world!

Diana F+ & the Sweeping Panorama

It’s hip to be square, yes. But what if you want to go way past the confinements of a square? After all, some sights are best enjoyed when captured with a full panoramic perspective. With our beloved medium-format Diana F+, sweeping panoramic images are effortlessly possible!

The lowdown on Diana F+ panoramas –picture your lo-fi squares continuously placed right next to each other –to make one extensive image. This is especially fantastic when you want to shoot horizon sunsets, skylines, and street scenes.

Panoramas Easy as 1,2,3

You can create an endless panoramic image by using the small image format, which is made possible by inserting the (4.2×4.2) plastic mask into your Diana F+. Change your Diana F+ to the small format by switching it on the back to shoot 16 photos. This will make an unlimited panoramic image by placing sequential frames next to each other. But if you’re feeling a little more daring and creative, try this cool trick courtesy of our modification expert, Mandi! Called the Diana F+ Spinshot Mod, this tip allows you to create super-panoramas up to 360 degrees!

What you need:

  • Diana F+
  • the (4.2×4.2) plastic mask included in your Diana F+ package
  • some tools: screwdrivers, Stanley knife (or blade)
  • empty 35mm film container (transparent if possible)
  • cardboard or other thin and stiff material which you can cut
  • probably a scanner that is able to scan medium format negatives
  • Tripod (optional)

    I love the endless panoramas you can do with the diana, Ive tried a few of my own. They're great because there are always little imperfections that make the panoramics really special :)
