I just love the Diana F+ camera. As I continue my series of tribute articles, let me introduce you to Part 3: The Wide Angle Lenses.
The 75mm plastic lens of the Diana F+ allows you to take very nice pictures. But in the possible scenario that the shooting angle of the 75mm standard lens is too narrow for you, you have a choice between two wide-angle lenses that fit the Diana F+:
The 55mm Wide-Angle :ens has a shooting angle of 60° (if pictures are taken in 46.5 × 46.5) or 54° (if pictures are taken in 42 × 42). The 38mm Super Wide-Angle Lens goes even wider with shooting angles of 86° or 78°.

Both lenses are included in the Deluxe Kit or Accessory Kit; but you can also purchase them separately. I can tell you right now, the investment is worth it!
A large number of interchangeable lenses and accessories (sold separately or as a set) can increase the potential of the Diana F+ immeasurably. I have tested those possibilities for you! Keep your eyes open for my following articles in the series and make sure to read Part 1 and Part 2.
Wide-Angle Photo Tips: Size matters! In your daily photo practice, a slight difference in focal length can have a huge impact on your images. Does it adjust everything in the photo? Do I get that entire steeple on the image without having to go so far back and then shooting in the sun? How exactly does a fisheye lens work? Read on and find out the answer.
Diana F+ Part 1 The Camera: A Dozen of Possibilities The original Diana F is a plastic beauty from 1960s Hong Kong. The Diana F+ is a reinterpretation, which is in no way inferior to the old Diana. It´s so versatile with all the optional accessories and lenses like no other lomography camera. And because of this, I will show you what makes this camera so special.
