The Diana F+ Camera - A Recreation and Homage to the Original

Starting from scratch with an original 1960's Diana camera, every tiny nook, cranny, gear and wheel was pulled apart to rebuild it from the ground up. Every quirk and "imperfection" was duly noted and reconstructed - yielding a lightweight beauty that handles and feels just like the original.

The Diana F+ Camera diana F+

Dating back to the early 1960s, the all-plastic Diana camera is a cult legend - famous for its dreamy, radiant, and lo-fi images. The brand new Diana F+ is a faithful reproduction and a loving homage to the classic Flash Diana - with a few new features tossed in. First off, it includes a retro-styled electronic flash which fires a burst of white or colored light at your subject. Included adapters allow you to use the Diana Flash on standard hotshoe cameras or use a hotshoe flash on Diana F+ body. Its plastic lens, 2 shutter settings (daylight & "B"), 3 aperture settings, and manual focus are all hallmarks of the original Diana. And on top of that, the Diana F+ offers a removable lens and super-small aperture for pinhole images, two image formats (12 or 16 square shots on a standard 120 roll), an endless panorama feature that allows for unlimited and nearly seamless panoramic shots, and both a standard tripod thread & shutter lock for easy shake-free long exposures. Each package includes the new Diana Vignettes, More True Tales & Short Stories book - packed with over 200 pages of Diana history, Diana+ images, and truly off-the-wall fictional stories.
*Uses all varieties of medium format 120 film.

The Diana Flash

Working with the classic 1960’s design, we meticulously re-crafted the Diana Flash to look and feel like the original. Its face is cast in reflective silver, and it syncs with the Diana F+ via an old-school metal plug connection. It offers three key capabilities:

Overview

  • Film format: 120
  • Size: 5” x 3.75” x 3” (12.5cm x 9.5cm x 7.6cm)
  • Variable shutter (daytime & “B” for unlimited long exposures)
  • 12-shot (5.2x5.2cm), 16-shot (4.2x4.2cm), and endless Panorama (4.6x4.6cm) formats
  • Removable lens for super-wide-angle pinhole shots.

The Plastic Fantastic Diana Lens

The Diana's original all-plastic lens has been duplicated with utmost love and care to ensure the same dreamy, gorgeous, color-drenched, sometimes-blurry, and often-mindblowing results that Diana users have always treasured.

Diana F+

Integrated Color Flash

Integrated Color Flash

Just like the Colorsplash camera and Colorsplash Flash, the Diana F+ includes a small packet of plastic color gel filters. Slip one into your flash and throw a burst of colored light at your subject – day or night!

Long Exposure Flash

Long Exposure Flash

By setting your Diana F+ to the long exposure “B” setting, you can let all of that streaming ambient light into your image – thereby superimposing a flashed or colorflashed subject against a glowing, riotous, and absolutely beautiful background.

Included Hotshoe Adapter

Included Hotshoe Adapter

The Diana Flash works via a two-pronged plug adapter – just like the original! It plugs directly into the Diana F+ camera body. On top of that, a Diana Plug-to-Hotshoe adapter is included, which allows you to use the hi-powered and radiantly beautiful Diana Flash on any standard hotshoe camera – like the LC-A+, Fisheye 2, Holga w/ hotshoe and plenty of others!

Two Shutter Speeds

Choose between "N" for normal daytime snapshots or “B” for unlimited indoor and nighttime exposures.

Two Image Sizes

Two Image Sizes

For your pleasure, you can choose between the 12 full-frame shots (5.2x5.2cm), or 16 smaller square images - in the classic Diana format (4.2x4.2cm)!

Multiple and Partial Exposures

Multiple and Partial Exposures

Like the Holga, you can advance the Diana+ as much or as little as you like after each shot - making multiple exposures, half-exposed frames, and stretched out crazy-long shots a snap.

Multiple and Partial Exposures

Pinhole Function

Remove the lens, set the aperture to a super-small pinhole and shoot a super-wide-angle, severely old-school image through a tiny hole.

Endless Panorama

Endless Panorama

Use this setting along with the smaller image format (4.2x4.2) to place sequential frames right next to each other and create a concurrent and unlimited panoramic image.

Shutter Lock and Tripod Thread

Shutter Lock and Tripod Thread

Sharp and solid long exposures (especially pinhole images) require a steady camera. To help you out, we’ve included a standard tripod thread on the bottom of your Diana+ and a small shutter lock that allows you to keep the shutter indefinitely without holding it down.

2 Year International Warranty

2 Year International Warranty

The Diana+ is covered against any manufacturer defects for a full 2 years from the date of purchase. This warranty is valid throughout the world.

Comments about Lomography Lomography Diana F+ Lomography Camera:

Using for Creative shots. Experimenting with lighting and with exposure settings. Need to read more about lomo to get all out of this camera
The extra lenses and the 35 mm back are expensive add ons in relationship to the camera itself.
