Promote Your Instax

Do the things no other back can do :)

As promised, here is another tip on using the Instant Back, attached to the mighty Diana Multi-Pinhole Operator. Long exposure is the name of the game here.

Voilà! – remember that part where I’ve got some psychedelic images, forwarding the film while the curtain is still open? Now let’s try to do it Instantly!

Open the curtain, wait for some time to expose a picture (like half or so of the normal exposure time) and press the button that ejects the Instax mini paper while the shutter is still OPEN! :) If it’s not the last paper in the pack, the next one will start exposing right away, so you’ll get kinda very strange combination of next-and-previous images on both papers!

As always when you take the new gear in your hands, my advice is to keep the true explorer spirit and seek which buttons combination are still left unpressed :)

    Perfect Combination: Fuji Instax Mini Film and the Diana Instant Back

    Just recently I asked myself why I would want to write about a film like the Fuji Instax Mini, because usually this film is the only one available for Fuji Instax cameras. But then it hit me! It can be an alternative to many other instant films, since I can load almost any film into my Diana F+, other medium and 135 format cameras, and of course the Fuji Instax Mini.
