Diana Mini Modification - Let It Burn


If you drill holes they will come.

As mentioned in a older post i drilled some holes in my Diana Mini for extra light leaks madness. I usually taped them up but I left these totally uncovered for the entire roll.

Some pretty hard-core burns!

    It's only two 1mm holes in the back. Like getting your ears pierced.

    I like it! I wonder if we can get Lomo to sell extra backs so they could be altered in different ways: colored gels, slots, etc. I wonder if your holes were small enough and you put a hole through the pressure plate you could actually have a pinhole camera in back of your regular camera (very short focal length, I know). But think of the possibilities. A regular exposure double exposed with a redscale pinhole exposure. I wonder if I have an extra $60 lying around somewhere...

    Awesome! idk if i'm brave enough to try this but it's very tempting!
    Where exactly on the back of the cam do you drill those holes? right in the middle? or perhaps toward the side....?

    Is there a way to get light leaks like this without drilling holes? I'm afraid I would damage little guy.
