All About the Diana+ & Diana F+

New to the Diana+? Never tasted the sweet thrill of clicking its shutter, winding its film, and peering through it’s little red window. Here’s all the crucial facts on this lo-fi hot-stepper:

  • A faithful reproduction and a loving homage to the original 60’s Diana – capable of the same dreamy & radiant images – and with a few new features tossed in.
  • Its plastic lens, 2 shutter settings (daylight & “B”), 3 aperture settings, and manual focus are all hallmarks of the original Diana.
  • The Diana+ offers a removable lens and super-small aperture for pinhole images, two image formats (12 or 16 square shots on a standard 120 roll), an endless panorama feature that allows for unlimited and nearly seamless panoramic shots, and both a standard tripod thread & shutter lock for easy shake-free long exposures.
  • Each package includes the beautiful “Diana Vignettes” book – packed with over 200 pages of Diana history, Diana+ images, and truly off-the-wall short stories.

    I've only put one respectable roll through my Diana+ and own 6 other lomo cameras including the LC-A+, and for some reason I always find myself coming back to Diana.
    There's just so many options for it, especially now with all the lenses, not to mention
    the 35mm adapter. Gosh I LOVE this camera!
