The Leader Camera is another very basic Diana clone. Two shutterspeeds - Normal and Long time, 3 focus settings just like the Diana and the possibility to chose from two apertures- one for bright sun and the other one for- ok, let´s say - just a little less light.
If you´re familiar with Diana cameras this precious original piece of french 70ies won´t have much new up it´s sleave for you. That´s what I thought – but after the second exposure the release knob got stuck what caused unexpected half – normal – half longtime exposed pictures.
The Leader will give you the great feeling of shooting with an original oldtimer.
After some takings with the Diana F+ making pictures with the leader camera feels really oldschool – its an eye opening “back to the basics” experience. No flash to help out in poor light situations – no tripod screw for unshaky long time exposures. It really is the best to take out that piece of plastic history to nature on a sunny day – so that there´s enough light to creep into your camera through all the leaks and the blurred lens to get those ultra charming soft focused, vignetted images Diana partisans love so much.

Last year I took part in Photographia, a project that encouraged the use of cameras from the volt of Museu da Imagem em Movimento (M|i|mo). The gear collection used to belong to a well-known Portuguese TV channel (RTP) and some professional photographers. The cameras hadn’t been used since they were donated to the museum—until the launch of Photographia.

Estilhaços is an annual short film festival in Leiria, Portugal. I was challenged to create six analog videos to be projected during a live music showcase. I decided to use LomoKino for the first time.
