Never Lose your Diana F+ Flash Gels Again

Are you tired of losing the coloured gels from your Diana F+ flash, or deciding not to take them because you are afraid of losing them. Use this quick tipster to ensure you've always got your gels safe and secure.

When I received my Diana Flash for Christmas I was so excited and really wanted to take it out and start using it, but as soon as I saw the coloured gels in their little plastic pouch I knew I had a decision to make. Do I take the gels with me but risk losing them in the bottom of my very messy bag, or worse on the floor of the pub; or do I leave them at home and not have the option of splashing my photos with lots of lovely colour? After a few minutes thought I decided I needed a way of keeping the gels safe and secure and always available, when ever I need my flash.

All you need for this tipster are the following
- Scissors
- Double sided tape
- Your Diana Flash and gels

Simply cut a small strip of double sided tape and stick it to the back of the pack of gels, then stick the other side to the top of the flash. It does slightly ruin the aesthetic of the flash, but now I’ve always got my gels with me and never need to worry about losing them again.

I’m sure this could be done with some of the other Lomography flashes, so let me know if it works for you.

    @monamarques just contact lomography customer services, they are normally quite good about replacing things like gels, as long as you don't lose them again!
