Diana+ Splitzer User Review

Slice ’em, Mash ’em compose your image anyway you want. The Diana Splitzer will do your bidding!

I promised my younger brother I would get him a Holga, but when an opportunity came up using my Piggie points, I decided to get him a Diana+ instead for Christmas. I chose this since LSI was going all out on accessories to pimp out the lovely lady in blue.And having a Hong Meow myself, i imagined it would be great if we both shot using the same camera. One accessory that caught my eye was the Diana+ Splitzer. So I put two and two together and got the DIana Splitzer package. I had the camera delivered to the US and asked my brother to just mail me the Splitzer.

The Splitzer itself is made of a slightly flexible plastic that covers snugly on the front lens. Too snugly in fact, that one time it ate up the silver ring of the lens. I had to glue it back on and since then all was well between them. What I love about the Splitzer is that it essentially lets you be as creative as you want or thrifty when it came to your shots an a 120 roll of film. Since the camera’s lens cover is more of a liability than a from of protection, I use my Splitzer as a cover for the lens this way if i don’t remember to take it off I’d end up with an image instead of a blank frame. You can also use the Splitzer as a color filter holder. Jam up some colored folders in between the lens and the Splitzer or print out your own pattern on a sheet of transparency. In the old Lomo website, someone announced that this nifty accessory fits perfectly on the Holga 35BC so if you have both these camera’s getting the Diana+ Splitzer should be a no brainer.

If you still haven’t gotten a Diana+ and are planning to get one in the near future be sure to throw in one of these things in the package. you won’t regret it.It’s easy to use but quite tricky to master.

    hi. i bought this, but im not sure how i make the split. like how do you get two pictures in one. yeah, of course you could adjust the lens and take a picture, but how do you do it the second time so it shows up on the same pic?
