The Diana camera

01 29, 2014

Yesterday, a friend had me borrow his Diana cam before he left for Manila. I got all excited and spent an hour last night figuring the camera out. All I can say is it’s not your typical film camera. It uses 120 film which I can rarely find in my city unless I look for it online. It feels like a toy in my hands compared to my heavy tanker camera, the AE-1. My first reaction was, “Where’s the shutter button?” Haha. There was a time a few years ago that I was thinking of buying a Diana camera, but now, I’m not so sure. I have three films that came with the camera, so I’ll use those and let’s just see what photos I’ll come up with.

    Great camera, but needs a little oil paint and gold leaf to make it stunning! Love your photos. Love you.

    This camera is not worth the 120 film. To each his own though. Haha!
