Addition to the Collection

A few weeks ago I won a giveaway from Amanda's lovely Blog for the Diana F+ Camera with an instant back, making it usable with instax fujifilm. I've had it for a couple weeks now, and although it took some getting used to, I really love it. Not only is it a beautiful camera, its also incredibly light and gives you much more control than a regular instax. For anyone looking for a toy camera with the ability to use both instant and 120 film, you really can't go wrong!



The very first time I used it I had to play around a little with the settings, but third time was the charm! The first time was set to "sunny", and came out too dark. The second time I tried using the flash, which completely washed it out. The third time I set it to "partial sun" and turned the flash off, and I quite like the way it turned out!



The only setback to this camera is that it takes two fairly expensive batteries (mine cost $30 for both, but I've seen them for much more at camera stores), and that the little stopper that is meant to stop the shutter release falls out pretty easily. I haven't actually had it go off in my bag yet, but I've been quite careful about it. Other than those two things though, I really love it, and I can't wait to document my summer with it!

  7. I have been contemplating buying this camera! I had a Fuji instant camera but lost it when I moved, and there is something about the Diana cameras that is like a cult following and so vintage.

    Is it weird that i also love the pictures OF the camera? lol
