Big Fun with the Diana Mini!

24

As you cannot still change your Diana Mini lenses like you can with Diana F+ here is an idea for getting that different effects on your photos!

It’s so simple and effective! Have yourself these different adapters for the Lomo LC-A+ – Tunnel Vision and the Fisheye adaptor. Just stick the metal rings from these adapters in front of the lens of your tiny but cute Diana Mini. Then just mount the lens you want to use and shoot like crazy! Definitely a must try!

Fisheye

Macro

Tunnelvision

I only tried this only with the square format setting of the camera though, but hey it’s your turn to experiment! ;)

    hi, i have a diana mini and my friend just got me a diana + 20mm fisheye lens, if I get the fisheye adapter can I then use the fisheye lens on my mini?

  22. mephisto19

    @rosawhiteley1 no - diana and diana mini are two completely different cameras and you can not add the diana lens to the diana mini! this lens here is a small magnetic lens that was used. sorry.

    So here’s what we’ve been working on: an all new lomography.com

    For the last year we've been working on the next version of Lomography. We based our work on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and we wanted to share it as early as possible with you and can’t wait to hear what you think. Just one warning first: it is still in development and things can break. All the photos, comments, likes, homes and everything else were transferred as of October 16th, 2014. So anything you do on next.lomography.com won't be reflected on www.lomography.com and vice versa. Once we are done with testing, everything you did here will be deleted again. So this is a big playground for you to explore.

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.

    The Pleasure of Shooting Live Music Shows with the Petzval Lens

    There are small pleasures and big pleasures. A small one, like eating a chocolate after lunch, the first day of summer after a cold spring or finally meeting that girl you see every day on your morning commute can be more satisfying than anything else. As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
