As we celebrate 10 years of the darling Diana F+, we wanted to take the trip down to memory lane and remember what made us fall in love with this iconic medium-format camera in the first place.
As some of you might recall, the first Diana appeared in the early '60s. This remarkable camera allows you to shoot all types of 35mm film and experiment with gel filters to produce photos bursting with color. With a wide range of features, such as two shutter speeds, a pinhole function and the compatible Diana F+ Flash you will not be able to resist the charms of our beloved camera.
One of the best things about the Diana F+ is that it comes with four different lenses that you can use to explore different perspectives. On that note, we wanted to help you take your analogue photography to the next level and learn how to make the most out of all these fantastic lenses.
1. The Diana F+ 20mm Fisheye Lens
Upgrade your Diana F+ with this creative lens and enjoy a 180-degree field of view and a completely circular image on a square print. You can use this 20mm Fisheye Lens lens to get some fun line play when pointing your lens upwards. This can also be a creative way to use distortion to your advantage and take some outstanding photographs!
2. The Diana F+ Superwide 38mm Lens
How many times have you seen the most breathtaking sight and wished you could've created the perfect landscape photo and seize the moment? Well, with this superwide lens that boasts a 120 field of view you won’t miss a single detail.
3. The Diana F+ 110mm Telephoto Lens
A telephoto lens will allow you to take photos of subjects that are farther away from you. Sometimes having more distance can come in handy, especially if you want to make your models more comfortable in front of your lens. Achieve a uniquely softened special effect, and learn to create beautifully crisp foregrounded portraits with an expertly blurred background.
4. The Diana F+ 75mm Premium Glass Lens
Glass Lenses are great for shooting crisp and clear photos, and what’s more it’s also compatible with all the Diana F+ cameras which makes it the perfect analogue companion.
5. The Diana F+ Wide and Close-Up 55mm Lenses
With this combination, you can achieve that dreamy effect with the blurred background and your subject in the front. These two lenses will help you take impressive shots with shallow depth of field.
