    I'm having a blast with the Instant Back. It's so much fun. I have been shooting pinholes, doubles, and splitzering it up like crazy. So many possibilities here, my head is spinning. haha

    The instant back is one of the best things you've invented so far! It's a lot of fun when you finally figure out how to adjust the Diana to the Instax film. The only negative thing: I always run out of instax film and it's not available in a shop nearby :(

    The Instant Back is the perfect match for the Diana+. Endless fun (as long as you still have film packs) and the thrill of waiting to see the magic appear right before your eyes ... orgasmic!

    The Instant Back is the best feature for the Diana!
    So much possibilities, all lenses, doubles, pinhole, long expourses, flash, every every everything.
    It's also real analogue.
    And to see how the pictures develops in your hands is awesome.

    The instant back is a great way to experiment with the Diana. If you want to try something out, you can just do it with instants and in two minutes you'll se how it worked out. It is a cheap and fast way to learn how to use the Diana instead of having to shoot an entire roll of film before you see if something works. And of course the instax mini format has its own right with those small sexy, glossy pictures.

    The Diana Instantback is pure madness, a perfect lomo-geek invention to play with, full of possibilities and power because you can transform your camera in anything you want, you just have to buy and change the lenses, flash, and other accessories to get some magical instants. Very addictive. A powerful but no so cheap option to experiment.
    I'm in love again.

    Wow! Panic I've just come in after using my Dianaback all weekend to find my splitzerd pic is the first up here, yeah... can I scan in time!
    The back is brilliant fun and I love the discussions it inspires. it has taken a few tests to get some of the framing right and when it comes down to the pinholes, I think I'm just starting to get the right exposures, calculating what might be needed for a multiple expo on a pinhole is a barrel of laughs!! But I love it. I've used different lenses but my loves are the pinhole and the splitzer, the splitzer gives you some amazing mixes especially if you double as well. Pinholes are my way of slowing the process down and really exploring what I can do with instants.

    When I thought everything has been done, Lomography did it again. They pushed the limit and came up with this innovative product, Diana+ instant! It's so much fun to play with, and once I start, I can't stop. My favorite is double exposure. I have always loved polaroids because they look cute, but thanks to Diana+ Instant, I feel polaroid has become part of art.
