Want to widen your vision of the world? Try out the 38mm lens for the Diana+ camera and take it wherever you go!
I also love wide angle lens.
So, imagine my joy when LSI provided a Super Wide Lens for the Diana camera : not a 55 mm lens, but a 38 mm (équivalent to 25mm lens on a standard 35 mm camera )!
It is so Lomographic ! Why ? First, it creates a distortion of the reality, it’s an effect I’m seeking in photography. Second, depth of field is extremely wide, so everything is neat from 30 cm to infinite, and for someone who is often not paying attention to focusing, it’s wonderful ! Third, everything you’re pointing at is in the frame, that’s nice if you shoot architecture and city views. Fourth, and this point is very Lomographic, you have to approach very close to your subject, pay attention not to hit the subject when you aim at it !
