Anybody got experience with either of these? Looking to get one or the other soon in the 35mm format, but still debating...

I was looking into Toy cameras a while back. I'd get the Mini mainly cause it takes half
frame picture so you get twice as many shots per roll.

There loads of comparisons online if you Google Holga 135BC vs Dianai Mini

Heres one I found

I've been shooting with a holga for a little while now.I love how it really allows you to mess around with film while shooting.
I've used up about 3 rolls of color film,so now I'm going to start using the black and white roll that came with the initial package.
I've always wondered though,what are the big differences between the holga and the Diana?

here are a few generalizations ive made from research on these cameras. correct me if im wrong:

-the holga is cheaper
-the diana tends to require higher maintenance than the holga, but it is less bulky (and in my opinion looks better)
-the flash is cheaper and easier to use on the holga (a diana mini is smaller than its complementary flash unit..)
-photos taken by the holga are a bit more consistent, while those taken by the diana tend to have more aberration, a focus that looks sort of like the picture was taken underwater, and more uncontrollable "flaws" (i.e. light leaks, vignetting)

the general conception seems to be that the holga is better for beginners, but the diana's unpredictable nature yields more potential for surprising and unique results.

I've always thought about getting one of these toy cameras. When you get some prints back can you post them up? I'd love to see how they look. It might sway me to get one!

I know this probably isn't directed towards me but I do have real cameras. Toy camera's are.. well, toys. They're for fun. Quit hating.

here are a few quick shots i took. i dont know the first thing about photography or composition or anything, these are just rough shots by an inexperienced dude.

i used fuji superia extra film, iso 400. had these developed at costco. my scanner isnt all that great, so it made the contrast a bit more intense and the focus a little more blurry; in the first picture, the bird's head is actually visible.

Here are a few of mine with a holga, some are 120mm but all the color ones are 35mm. these are about a year old, haven't touched the holga since then, looking at these again makes me want to shoot a roll.

Bumping up this old thread but Ive seen those sardinera cameras around, never seen photos from them though. Do they look like the Holga 135? Those cameras are kindof expensive for being lomo, main reason why I haven't gotten them. I mainly shoot with my Holga 120n which I bought for under 30 bucks. So if anyone has photos taken with the sardinera camera I would love to see them go ahead and post them in my lomo photography facebook group or if youve taken any pictures with any lomo camera thats cool too.
