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)

    Eugenia Loli's Surreal Collages

    In the hands of those capable wielding it, art can be a powerful weapon. With it, for one, creation of fantastical realms far removed from the one we live in is entirely possible. Through collage making, Eugenia Loli builds such worlds that invite the audience not only to marvel at them but also, and most importantly, to see through the hodgepodge of images to find meaning and formulate interpretations.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    Angela Izzo on Shooting with the Diana Mini, Photographing Musicians, and Then Some

    While many of us can only dream of working with musicians and photographing them, Angela Izzo's job entails exactly that. Apparently, this is a fulfillment of her own dream that she had when she was younger. In this interview, Izzo talks about her beginnings which, of course, included going to as many shows and festivals as she possibly can; some of her most memorable on-the-job-experiences with the likes of The Doors, Lykke Li, Jack White, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, and Chris Robinson Brotherhood; her inspirations and other interests; and her love for film photography and Diana Mini. And to those looking into fulfilling their own dreams of working in the same industry, Izzo also shares helpful advice based on her own experiences.
