I don't know about you, but I never seem to remember all the little things that are needed for each camera. Thankfully, my Diana Multi Pinhole Operator came with a handy little Exposure Guide, but I couldn't seem to fit it into the camera so I would always have it with me. I used Photoshop, cut and pasted a few things, and viola! A neck strap equipped with an exposure guide.
There really isn’t a whole lot to this:
I scanned the Exposure Guide, cut and paste the pictures with the words.
Then I printed out the sheet on plain paper, cut the strips out and taped them to the neck strap!
That’s it! Now you will always know how long to leave the shutter open.
Well, the taping wasn’t the easiest. I taped the strips in sections to the existing neck strap using small pieces of tape, then I used larger (packing tape) to wrap around the paper and neck strap so it was completely covered. Regular Scotch tape may work too. I recommend wrapping the neck strap using smaller sections of packing tape, about finger width. It will be much easier to wrap around.
Here is the image of what I printed out on a 8.5×11 sheet of paper.
Diana+ 35mm Back One of the reasons I got the Diana F+ was because of all the accessories it came with, all the options you had when taking a photograph. The Diana+ 35mm Back is great, not only because it allows you to shoot more photos (24-36 on 35mm instead of 12 or 16 on medium format), but because it gives you even more choices!!!
Why Shoot 4 When You Can Shoot 8? While the ActionSampler, and the SuperSampler, are great cameras, why shoot 4 photos with the click of a single button when you can shoot 8?

On-Time Rumble: Show Us Your Perfect Timing There is nothing than a photo shot at the perfect moment. Henri Cartier Bresson's principle on "The Decisive Moment" is a principle that we should still follow to this day. A perfectly-timed photo creates impact, whether it's one of a friend jumping into the pool or a couple emerging from the ceremony on their wedding day. For this rumble, we want to see that breathtaking moment, shot at the perfect time.
My First Lomo Affair: Smolda and the Diana F+ Radka's first photowalk with the Diana F+ went without any fuss. The camera's dainty looks charmed and brought smiles to the people she met that day. Have a look at the dreamy square photographs from Radka's First Lomo Affair!
