My Long-Awaited Diana Instant Back+ Finally Came Back Perfectly Working

2012-07-17 2

I must admit, my first experience with the Diana Instant Back+ was a mess and it was in part my fault. I just bought it in the wrong period. However, the entire Lomography team supported me throughout this unpleasant experience and now that I have a perfectly working Instant Back, I am the happiest person on Earth!

This is my short story. It was my birthday and all my friends decided to buy me as a gift my beloved Diana Instant Back+. Well, that was the beginning of all my troubles. I was very happy to finally have the Instant in my life but once I put it on my Diana F+, I noticed that all the photos were burnt and overexposed. I decided to send it back. After a while, it came back to me but this time the photos didn’t come out. Damn, I was very sad! I sent it back again, I was kind of frustrated, as you may imagine. But when a new, perfectly working, Instant Back knocked at my door, all my worries disappeared!

Now, it’s always with me. It’s a very fun accessory, that’s the reason why I strongly recommend it to anyone. The wait was definitely worth it.

    I've used my instant back before and I didn't like the exposures either. After reviewing instructions and film, I realized that the Instax Mini film is at 800 ISO and with the instant back's adaptor, the film is actually to be used like it's 400 ISO instead. So tomorrow I'm going to use my new light meter and set it to 400 ISO and see what exposures I get with that. The thing about 800 ISO is that it's easily blown out in bright daylight or with the use of flash, so with a camera that really doesn't allow for lots of manual settings, it's tricky to work with.
