While the series of film characters known as Lomography has developed a classic in the form of the Diana model, Lomography switches things up with the launch of their Diana Mini. The pint-sized camera features some interesting formats including Half-Frame shots which result in a stunning 72 shots on one 35 mm film. A wide-angle lens gives you four focal distances as well as the ability to take multi-exposure images. The full run-down of this new camera can be seen below while image samples are seen here.
Diana in look and spirit – but don’t be fooled – this is an altogether different Diana experience!
The Diana Mini has big shoes to fill being the little sister of the classic beauty Diana F+. Luckily the “Mini” was born a star in her own right. Super sweet, the Diana Mini has got plenty of style and features to the nines. With the flick of a little switch you can move from the retro square format to the amazing Half-Frame, giving you the ability to Shoot Forever, packing 72 shots onto one 35mm film! Her handy-dandy size and limitless creative potential is a revolution in analogue photography.
Square images on one 35mm film!
72 retangular half-frames!
With the Diana Mini long exposures are no biggie thanks to the ‘B’ setting, tripod mount and cable release attachment – a Diana first. Its wide-angle lens means you can get close or chose between any of the four focal distances. There is the possibility to take multiple-exposures and if you’re into abstract expressionism when it comes to your Lomography, you can overlap frames endlessly creating multiple-exposure panoramas. The in-built Diana flash plug makes it compatible with the retro-styled Diana Flash (available separately).
This Diana Mini is our response to the insatiable demand from the Lomographic community for more Diana innovations. Read on to find out more about how the Diana Mini is doing its bit to pioneer the endless creative possibilities of Diana Lomography!
