Lomography Diana Pinhole-Multi Operator

It’s a single pinhole camera, it’s a double-pinhole camera…it’s a multi-pinhole camera!!! Add color to your medium-format pinholes and up to 3 times the fun with the Diana Multi Pinhole Operator!

Do you like 3D looking photos? Do you like dreamy looking photos? Or do you like a more normal-looking photo? Well, you can have all three looks, and more importantly, on one roll of film!

This camera is great when you use it as a normal pinhole camera and even better when you switch it to 3 pinholes and add the color gels to it!!

All you have to do is switch the dial at the bottom of the lens to one, two, or three pinholes!

(Sorry I don’t have a sample of the 2 pinholes.)

You can use no gels, gels with 2 colors, or gels with 3 colors!

You can mix gels with 2 colours and 3 pinholes, 1 pinhole and a gel with 3 colors. They possibilities with this one camera are almost endless! My favorite is the 3 pinholes, 3 colored gels!

For interesting pictures every time, try this camera out!

A few more things:

  • It is a pinhole so beware of blurry photos. Use a tripod. And use your finger to cover the pinhole(s) to avoid shake.
  • If you use the gels add a little extra time to your exposure
  • I have only used 120 film so far, but I just remembered that with my Diana Instant Back+, I could also use 35mm film! That will be the next camera combination I will use!
  • Remember, it is a pinhole camera, the exposure time varies depending on the ISO of the film and the amount of light. Use this Tipster to help you out.

The Diana Multi-Pinhole Operator allows you to choose from 1, 2, or 3 pinholes on a shot. Paired with colour gels, there’s no end to your medium format pinhole fun! Get your own Diana Multi Pinhole Operator now!
