Are you into things mini and compact? Like, the Diana mini for example. If so, then you will like this tiny analogue goodie. Hobbyist Kevin Klein likes to make miniatures (mostly of Victorian technology). This miniature camera is one of his recent creations. It’s only a bit larger than a quarter and is primarily made out of plywood which is 1/32 inch thin. It also shoots half-inch square format images.

We’ve seen a lot of DiY cameras out there. From matchbox pinholes to fully functional Lego cameras to large format ones. This one gained the title of the smallest wet plate camera in the world. Pretty cool.

The Diana Mini is the ultra-compact, petite version of the Diana F+. This camera takes soft-focused, lo-fi images in 35mm and allows you to change between half-format and square shots with a flick of a switch. Get your own Diana Mini now!
