We can’t blame you if you want to see the Diana and its other colourful and newer counterparts, it’s just that good! The original Diana camera is a simple looking plastic medium-format shooter that has its roots in 1960s film mania.

People caught wind of its soft focused shots, distinctive vignetting and a whole slew of other remarkable features. Soon enough, various manufacturers from all over the world created their own version of the Diana. This was the beginning of an out pour of Diana clones with different designs, functions, and quirks!

Well, we couldn't just sit on the sidelines so we also gave the Diana a makeover and released different Diana F+ editions!
