Staying Focused with the Diana F+ and Diana Mini

Seeing is believing! I love taking out my Diana duo, the F+ and the Mini, but I was having trouble seeing my focus arrow in the dark. Time after time, the sun would go down and the night's darkness was upon me. I couldn't focus, I had to fix this!

Gold glitter on focusing arrow

It was an easy solution. I grabbed some glitter nail polish and marked my arrow. Lo and behold, I could see! Adding a little bit of shimmer and shine set the focus arrow apart from the black backdrop. If you don’t have nail polish, try to glue something shiny- foil, paint, or a metallic sticker- anything that can reflex a little bit of light!

All in all, I have no trouble focusing anymore. My glittery arrow keeps me focused at anytime of the day!

    Since the focal length is so short, it's easier to just leave it on infinity all the time at f:11 and only set to .6 meters when you're really close up. Hope it helps!
