Customer Reviews

I got my film developed today, the 24th, and 21/30 pictures came out but there was only about a handful that were great.
Jordan Tran
I ended up buying her a different strap (one which was designed to go with a much more expensive camera), and after a little rigging on her part, she made it fit.
Amanda Spence
I could not advance or rewind the film so I ruined an entire roll of film getting it out and trying to figure out why it was stuck.

RANT: I took three rolls the first day I got the camera and I LOVE the way my pictures came out. Yes, it's not digital and yes, you have to wait for your pictures to be developed *gasp*, but we live in a world with too much instant gratification and a little patience will do us all some good. I had a couple that came out like "normal" shots and they're are kind of a nice surprise. Overall, they have a lot of character and getting them to be in focus is tougher than other cameras I've used (also have a RICOH from the 1950's and a Mercury from the 1920's - that thing is a BEAST to use) but that's really the whole point, isn't it? We live in an imperfect world and 20 megapixel, perfectly framed, focused and color-corrected photos don't really represent most of our lives.

Live dangerously - go analog.

REVIEW: The camera is made of tough plastic and *feels* like a toy. It's as much of one as you want it to be. Take it as seriously as you take yourself and you'll be fine.

Loading film takes a little more patience and needs to be done SLOWLY to be sure the film advances correctly (see user pics above for a multi-exposure I accidentally took cause I didn't load the film right).

It's small enough to fit in an inside pocket of a jacket - if you don't mind the pocket being a little bulgy. The lens cap is not attached to the body, so be attentive when taking it off. I thought I lost it twice in the first day. Am currently formulating a DIY solution to attach it to the body.

Even though this is pictured with a flash IT DOES NOT COME WITH A FLASH. I was a little disappointed by this (should've read the description closer), but taking a few rolls w/no flash will give you the chance to understand how it exposes images.

Style Name: Diana Mini Camera Kit with Flash Verified Purchase
Ok a few things here. I've shot a bunch of holga and pinhole over the years and this is probably one of the funnest.

It takes the dreamy diana photos that we all love, except instead of filling up the entire 35mm frame it uses about 2/3 of it and makes a negative that is square..so on the normal film setting you get about 45 shots or so on a 36 exposure film. Since i make prints manually its not a big deal, it might take a little manipulation on your part to make it look normal in a scan.

Tips:
Do not play rough with this camera, if you find the film not advancing when you twist the knob click the shutter, when starting a new roll sometimes its tricky to get the film to feed and advance properly. Listen for the 'click' when the new frame is in place, and do not attempt to force the knob. if you feel the film is a little too tight coming out of the spool, reduce the tension in the spool via the film rewind knob.

The metal prongs that hold the film in place will probably scratch the back of your film, you can solve this either sanding them with some fine grit paper or putting a small strip of cellophane tape on them.

The flash is more than adequate, so much so that i wouldn't recommend using at close distances unless you have low iso film loaded. However do not leave it connected to your camera and then throw it in the bag.

Also this camera has a cable release as well, which is just another bonus on an already great gadget.

100 bucks is a little pricey, but its pretty unique and the pictures it takes are pure win. Overall i am happy.

Be aware: this is a lo-res camera. Plastic lens. Plastic body. It is designed to give over saturated pictures. It has a zone focus that works but IT'S A ZONE FOCUS. If you use it, nothing is out of focus, but things are rarely IN focus either.... The film can be tweaky to get to move through the camera correctly - lots of little eccentricities....

I love this camera!

Well, OK, I don't LOVE it, but I carry it with me all the time and keep a local one hour kiosk in business developing my pics.

A couple of tips:

Have your film developed, put onto a CD disc, and get a contact sheet (if you want). Avoid getting prints with this camera (use your own computer and printer).

And BE SURE you let the tech at the kiosk know the negatives are square (if you, like me, are using this option).

... And enjoy!

Style Name: Diana Mini Camera Verified Purchase
I've been using the original Diana for years. I loved it and I have the Diana 35mm back attachment, but the problem is the original Diana is flimsy, and with another heavy piece of equipment attached, I must be very careful on using it.
I purchased this in hopes I can just stick it in my bag and not worry about it like the original. It's perfect. It's small, loads the film easily, and what I love about it most is I can't modify the inside of it, unlike the original, I had such a hard time figuring out what format to use because there were so many pieces to include in each change.

I recommend this for someone that wants to start off in lomoraphy or just have fun with film.

Around frame 15, my camera jams and stops advancing the film. If you try to force it, the film rips at the sprocket holes. I thought I was doing something wrong until I googled the problem. Turns out many, many others have had the same issue, and there are video tutorials on how to fix the camera. It's not an easy fix, especially if you are not familiar with screws, washers, filing plastic, etc. Brand new out of the box and still needs a repair? Very dissapointing. Especially for the price!
