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.
