I love this mod for the Diana F+! The first few pics I took didn't come out right, as it took me a bit to get the hang of the preferable lighting conditions, etc. However, as long as you make sure you have enough light, your pics will turn out! I love the small size of the photos too. This is a must have for anyone with a Diana F+!

I like the idea of having an instant back for the Diana F+, but this is such a horrible compromise. You're basically sacrificing the medium-format size of the camera, and replacing it with a tiny little business card-sized instant snapshot. The unit makes the camera very back-heavy, and exposure is total guesswork. I ran twenty shots through it, and no matter how hard I tried, about a third of them were solid black, and a third solid white. The other third were meh shots with very bad exposure in either direction, and almost no definition.

It's a neat concept, but seriously, just spend a few more bucks and buy a Fuji instant camera if you want instax mini pictures.

I use this for my Diana+ Dreamer cam and it's great. Of course I wish it were flush with the camera for a more appealing and efficient look, but it is still great. I use it whenever I want polaroids and it works great. I haven't had any problems with it jamming or anything and I've been through four polaroid packs. I've had it for 4 years (Bought in 2010 - yes I neglected it for a long time)and it still works great.

and she absolutely loves it! She had trouble with the first two exposures but its because she didn't have her Diana F+ set to bulb mode which is important otherwise you will waste film wondering why there isn't an image. We also noticed that the battery door doesn't seem to always stay latched, will probably just cover it with a piece of tape if it becomes a serious issue.

Definitely worth the purchase!

Have run several packs of film through it, and no problems at all. It is a Lomography thing, so don't expect precision in the photo right off. I've noticed the viewfinder on the camera doesn't exactly show you what you are going to get, so some trial and error is involved. Overall, I'm very happy with this back.

I love my instant back. It's not perfect but that's exactly what I wanted. If you want perfect instant photos, buy an instax mini. The instant back definitely takes some practice to get it right but when you do it's so worth it.
I would recommend this product to anyone who is interested in experimenting.

I was underwhelmed with the instant back. It's awkward battery is a pain to keep replacing after such short amounts of shooting. The Diana photos also don't translate to instax mini very well. It works well and I have no problems with the functionality; I was just not thrilled.

...on whether I like this thing or not. It's fun to play with, but it's also incredibly fiddly. The flash on the Diana F+ tends to be a bit too bright for instax film (diffusing the light by putting tissue paper over the flash DOES help some, but again, it's still fiddly,) so using it indoors isn't ideal. It seems to work best outdoors; but the saturation and moodiness of the photos is a bit weather dependent. Photos taken on sunny days tend to have that very over-saturated lomography look; whereas on cloudy days, they tend to have a very moody, haunting, desaturated look.

The one thing that has helped the most, though, is combining this with either the super wide angle or fisheye lenses. In fact, I wouldn't recommend this back unless you have one of them or are willing to purchase one. I really had a lot of trouble aiming with the standard lens and my first pack was filled with images that were off-centered or too close or were washed out by too much flash. Using the super wide angle lens or the fisheye lens has given me more reliable, cooler looking photos (and wasted a lot less of the very expensive film packs!)

Bottom line here: if you're looking for a instant camera that takes reliable photos with little fuss, you'll hate this thing with a passion. If you're looking for something that's fun to play around with, you have the lenses, are looking for moody photos with surprises and/or don't mind a bit of fiddling, you'll probably enjoy this quite a lot. :)

I no longer own my Diana, it fell apart years ago, but I bought this back to adapt other cameras to shoot Instax film. So far the experiments have met with moderate success.
