I bought the Diana+ 35mm Back because I just love those sprocket holes! I’m really into medium format film and square photos, but this tool gives you so many more possibilities for you and your Diana F+. The convenience of using any type of 35mm film! Not bad…isn’t it?!
It comes with four different frames:
- square with exposed sprocket holes (36 exp.)
- panoramic with exposed sprocket holes (27 exp.)
- standard panoramic (27 exp.)
- standard landscape (36 exp.)
Of course you can do multiple exposures and endless panoramas. Two integrated exposure counters tell you the frame you’re on. The 35mm back can easily be installed and removed again. NICE tool!
I love my Diana, but framing can be trying at times, especially with the Instant Back which takes you 5cm away from the viewfinder peep hole. I found a way to make framing with the Diana more pleasant.

Photographs with sprocket holes exposed are practically a dime a dozen these days but, of course, this wasn't the case more than 50 years ago. However, former freelance photographer Michael Ciavolino was already able to create one of the earliest examples of this technique back in the early '60s in his groundbreaking photograph called "Boat Ride, Rye Beach." Find out the fascinating story behind this photo, as well as how and why he did it in this exclusive Lomography feature!
