The Diana+ Splitzer


To tell the truth, full-frame has done pretty well by us over the past years. With a Diana F+ in hand, it’s nice to take a straight-off, one-shot image of your favorite person, animal, or thing.

But what about going past that large, single full-frame? How about diving into halves and quarters? What about dictating exactly what appears on your photo – and exactly where it appears? Take that image in front of your face and slice it straight down the middle. Slap it onto the right side of your image, and then take a breath. What do you want on the left? That’s the beauty – the choice is yours! You no longer just take the shots, you “call” them too!

Using the Diana+ Splitzer is easy! Slip it onto the top of your Diana+ or Diana F+ lens and twist the blades with your fingers. All you have to do is keep track of what parts of the image you’ve shot. OR NOT: we often like to just move the blades around a bit haphazardly to see what comes out later on.

By slicing and dicing your photos, you can re-combine them to make something entirely new. Or tell a story. Or just do something totally random and insane – in the hopes that the result is cool and pleasing. Don’t worry – it probably will be, but you might want to shoot it a few times to be sure. With the Splizter, you’ll never look at an Diana+ image as a single whole again. Instead, you’ll truly see it as the “sum of its parts” – which are happily decided upon and placed by you. Certain parts of certain image fragments bleed into one another for unpredictable multiple-exposed portions. But that’s just all part of the fun – isn’t it? The Diana+ Splitzer is yet another way to keep those absolutely unique and totally knockout images flowing.

Slice and dice your dreamy Diana images with the Diana+ Splitzer! Two small plastic blades can be turned to cut your image into halves, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths. Image parts bleed seamlessly into on another. The Diana+ Splitzer easily slips on and off the Diana+ lens and works with all Lomography Diana+ and Diana F+ cameras.
