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.Read more ›
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!
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.
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.
One thing you might want to consider when purchasing a camera like this is the type of film you will be using. Although any kind of 35mm film works, it's important to consider the speed of the film. I've found that an ISO of 400 works for all situations. My personal favorites are the Kodak BW400CN (black & white) and Fujifilm X-Tra. The colors are deeply saturated and work well with the random effects of the Diana.
There are times when after taking a picture the wheel won't turn all the way. I was worried about how the pictures would turn out but found out that they always produce a new effect that's always surprising, and I want to learn how to do it again. But that's the beauty of a camera like this. You'll never know what comes out next. If you're looking for stability, this really isn't the camera for you.
Multiple and long exposures are great on this camera. I generally like taking a picture of something dark and then take another picture in good lighting, and it looks haunting yet playful.
I usually use a regular point and shoot digital camera for day to day use, but I've been using this camera more and more as of late. You can't get these kind of images with a digital camera. And you can use Photoshop to manipulate the effects, but there's just something about it randomly occurring while it develops that makes this camera special.Read more ›
