10 Things We Love About the Diana F+

Much can be said about the Diana F+. Of course, we could go on and on about how much we love it but then it would be just rambling. We'll let you add your personal reason to the list -- sound off in the comments section below and let's see how much more things you can add to this.

1. The Diana F+ is rich in history.

Fifty plus years ago, a humble plastic camera was born. It shot on 120 film, had a plastic lens, and was loads of fun to shoot around with. Brands noticed its popularity and jumped on the wagon -- soon enough there were clones everywhere. And the rest, they say is history. Now it is reborn as the Diana F+ we have all come to love. You can learn more about its history here.

2. Its lightweight plastic body is a joy to use.

One of the things that really made the Diana F+ stand out is its lightweight but durable plastic body. This meant less strain on the hands and neck during a whole day of shooting. Now you know why it's called 'plastic fantastic' by some photographers.

3. Wide array of accessories to choose from

There are literally so many things to attach to the Diana F+. You have straps, flashes, lenses, and other accessories that you can use to personalize your Diana F+ experience. Talk about having choices!

4. Classic styling, modern functionality

The Diana F+ is pretty much patterned on the original Diana of the 60s. Why fix something that's not broken, right? But since we love it so much, we decided to give it some adjustments and an update to its classic looks. The result is a head turner of a camera with features that can go toe-to-toe with newer film cameras.

5. Different designs and different styles for everyone

There's a Diana F+ for every occasion... or mood. The Diana F+ probably has one of the biggest wardrobes out of all Lomography cameras to date. Whatever your style is, there's a Diana F+. for you. And don't even get us on the Detrich Collection.

6. Multi-format madness

If you're the type of person who likes to mix it up then the Diana F+ is for you. Shoot squares, get the advantage of film canisters and get instant satisfaction with instant film with a quick change of the dedicated film back. The Diana F+ is one of the most flexible and versatile cameras in Lomography's stable with the addition of the Diana+ 35mm Back, and the Diana Instant Back+.
