We stick out our ears when we want to hear clearly, or forcefully sniff with our nose to confirm that something is smelling fishy and naturally, we tend to get closer at things for them to be scrutinised. Through the investigation of our latest Tipster for this week, she gave new meaning to the word ‘macro’.
Diana Macro by satomi
This is a very easy tip, and all you need is the macro lens for LC-A+ and a metal ring that comes with the lens.
1. Take the lens off your Diana
2. Paste the metal ring
3. Put the macro lens on
First, I did some experiments using the Diana Instant Back to find out what the best distance was for the macro shots. I have measured the distance using my fingers, and after some tests, I applied a four-finger rule to the Diana macro shots. However, I am not sure if all macro lenses produce images in the same manner, so I would recommend that you would do some tests if you have Diana Instant Back!
I have noticed some differences in between the LC-A macro shots and Diana macro shots even though I’m using the same exact lens on both cameras. First of all, when I’m using it on LC-A, I need to get much closer to the subject than when using it on Diana. Second, the results are a bit different, too. It seems that Diana macro shots doesn’t blur out the surroundings as much as LC-A macro shots. But I can tell you, whether you are using the macro lens on LC-A or Diana, the images are really magical and fascinating!
