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!
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!
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. In February, I wanted to take one of those long exposure night shots of traffic. You know the type: nighttime cityscape, with bright red and white stripes where traffic passes. I love those shots, but I had never gotten around taking one.
