You know what will save you some money and allow you to creatively tell a short story? Why, the Diana Mini, of course! Capable of shooting full squares as well as half-frames, double the number of exposures you can capture on a roll with this versatile, vintage-inspired film camera!

I’ve tried nearly all Lomography cameras but the first one I bought for myself was the Diana Mini. It’s the perfect analogue beginner camera because it’s cute, compact and capable of shooting in a frenzy of formats, my favourite one being the half-frames! And since summer is upon us, you can bet we’ll be taking this camera around to our trips!

Since I’m always trying to get the most out of a single roll of film, the Diana Mini is great because 1) you can tell a short narrative in two frames a.k.a. diptychs; 2) splicing a frame in two means doubling the amount of exposures in a roll (12 becomes 24, 24 becomes 48, and 36 becomes 72 shots) so you save money; and 3) it allows you to get even more creative with the space you have and do multiple exposures by simply pressing the shutter again!
