Taking Care of the Diana Baby for the First Time

After having the Diana F+ and the Diana Mini, I couldn't leave the last family member behind and I got myself a Diana Baby 110 camera as well. And of course I couldn't just leave this one next to her sister and mother (or mother and grandmother?), I had to take her out on her own.

Being the perfect size to just carry with you all the time, you won’t even notice you have her with you. After having some trouble getting the back of the camera so I could load her up (After a few minutes of cursing and sweating I found out it isn’t that hard – I was just doing it the other way around) everything is easy with this girl. As I said already, because of her size and weight (nothing) you won’t notice she’s with you – for me this also means she is easy to forget and get lost in the shitload of stuff I always carry around. We did have a bit of a rough start you might notice but don’t let this fool you. Once she’s shooting, it is really easy and fun! I loaded her with the wide-angle lens that comes with the package.

I took her on my trip to Stockholm and shot one roll of Lomography tiger 200 iso film.

Unfortunately It wasn’t the most sunny day in Sweden when taking these pictures but I do still like the outcome (forgive me my fast-scanning-bad-cropping) But when the sun decides to show herself the Diana baby loves it!

and inside…

But there is one little thing, which is not to blame on the camera but on me! Being spoiled with camera’s like the LC-A+ and the LC-Wide I happened to forget to take the lenscap of more than just once – So in the end this was all that was on my film!! A big lesson learned from the Diana Baby – Never be a lazy photographer…

But I am a big fan of her wide-angle lens, which gives this very small camera a very powerful lens to work with – I never went wrong with focusing or anything and in the end, I do like the results!! So I guess I should look at myself and pay a little more attention and we could be a great team!

So – a great addition to the Diana Family, but don’t underestimate her!
