The Square Diana Mini Splitzing Experience

The Diana Mini camera is a stunning little toy by itself, but what if you want to make some square splitzer shots with it?

What you need for this experience:
1) A Diana Mini camera
2) The LC-A+ Splitzer tool
3) And a bit of split imagination!

As the Splitzer can’t be fixed on the Diana Mini lens, you need to hold it in front of the lens and as I tried it out it wasn’t easy if you hold it on the “normal” side of the splitzer, but I noticed that if you hold it on the other way (the side where Lomography is written) the circle fits perfectly on the size of the mini lens! Ok, you still need to hold it by hand but there’s surely an easy way to fix it with some tape around it.

I thought after shooting that if the “Lomography” inscription and the red part of the Splitzer is on the lens side, it will affect the quality of the shots and that perhaps will be seen on the shots, but after seeing the results there was nothing of it, and the Splitzing came out great!

So, grab your Diana Mini, your LC-A+ Splitzer and shoot some surprising square splitzing doubles!! :)))

    Cool shots man. I just use a piece of cardboard that i've cut to cover half the lense. I want to try and get the same effect shooting half-frame and holding the mini at 90 degrees. Think it'll work?

    I just had a customer that wondered how to do splitzer images with the Diana Mini and I showed her your tipster. She loved the results and bought a Splitzer :)

    Would it also work just using a cap and cut half of it off? I just found an extra cap and was wondering if I could use it to make splitzing pictures
