My First Film Shot with the Diana F+ Zebra

I already thought about buying a Diana F+ when finally, the Diana F+ Zebra was released. I simply had to have her! I shot my first roll of film and I have already fallen in love with this camera!

Photo was taken with the Diana Mini and the Diana Flash.

So I ordered and was eagerly awaiting her. When she finally arrived, I hurried to put in a film. Brave as I am, I only took an ISO 100 one, namely Fuji Superia. This decision was all but wrong as you can see on the fotos.

Because I wanted to test out every possible thing with the first film already, I made double exposures, close-up shots with the close-up lens, and of course, some shots with the coloured flash filters.

Some days later I was able to pick up the negatives from developing. I hardly could await seeing the results and was so eagerly looking forward to it. And of course I was not to be disappointed. Everything was in there, e.g. a panorama surprise and a new favourite photo!

Here you can see all my photos from the first film and what can I say? This camera will surely accompany me frequently from now on. My next purchase will be the Diana Instant Back+ once it’s available again.

Now, please tell me which among my first shots are your favorite!

The Diana F+ is a new twist on the ‘60s classic cult camera. Famous for its dreamy and soft-focused images, the Diana F+ is now packed with extra features such as panorama and pinhole capabilities. Available in our Online Shop.

    @pearlgirl77 I know your pain! I want one an Instant Back for the Diana too - but like everything I want to buy it's out of stock. I tried to get a case for my lubitel (which I had to wait for for 6 months before it became available). It was in stock until I pressed add to checkout at which point I was told I couldn't have one! Sucks being here at the bottom of the earth some times. Great doubles, great article.
