Diana +

Now with an integrated hotshoe flash mount for the Flash+! So here's how the story goes: back in the '60s, a small firm in Hong Kong created an inexpensive camera called the Diana. Crafted entirely of plastic, each camera cost only a dollar at the time of its release! Although it was only produced for about 10 years, Diana became a favorite with avant-garde and lo-fi photographers. They loved its soft & dreamy images, super-saturated colors, unpredictable blurring, and random contrast. Diana shots were raw & gritty, with a character all their own. They couldn't be duplicated by any other camera on Earth! But after the camera was discontinued in the '70s, functional examples became difficult to find and increasingly expensive to purchase. Dianas were in high demand! And given the cameras exceptional images and retro good looks, the fine folks at Lomo decided that it was time for a comeback!
Not satisfied with a simple reissue, Lomo decided to add something to the original. That meant adding all-new functionality to the camera and dramatically expanding its creative potential. They called it Diana+. Its body was re-cast using a duplication of the original mold. The lens was balanced to obtain those "perfectly imperfect" dreamy, gorgeous, color-drenched, sometimes-blurry, and often-mindblowing images. And this Diana knows a few new tricks, too! Features include an integrated hotshoe flash mount for use with the Flash+; 2 shutter speeds: one for day and one for night; the ability to shoot multiple or partial (overlapping) exposures; two image sizes for 12 square shots or 16 square shots on a roll of film; new Pinhole function: remove the lens, set the aperture to a super-small pinhole and shoot a super-wide-angle, severely old-school image through a tiny hole; new endless panorama function: shoot a long, concurrent, and unlimited panoramic image, with almost no space between each individual frame.

Diana +Splitzer

With a Diana F+ in hand, it's nice to take a straight-off, one-shot image of your favorite person, animal, or thing. But what about going past that large, single full-frame? How about slicing & dicing it into halves and quarters? What about dictating exactly what appears on your photo - and exactly where it appears? Take that subject in front of your face and slice it straight down the middle. Slap it onto the right side of your image, and then take a breath. What do you want on the left? That's the beauty - the choice is yours! You no longer just take the shots; you "call" them too With the Splitzer, you'll never look at a Diana+ image as a single whole again. Instead, you'll truly see it as the "sum of its parts" - which are happily decided upon and placed by you. Two small plastic blades can be turned to cut your image into halves, quarters, eighths, and sixteenths. Image parts bleed seamlessly into on another. The Diana+ Splitzer easily slips on and off the Diana+ lens and works with all Lomography Diana+ and Diana F+ cameras.
Do the Splitzer!

  1. Hi!

    Many thanks for your site it's wonderfully enriching for Lomo information. =)

    I am actually interested in getting a Fisheye 2 Chrome, and reading your blog it says the White Knight edition has 180 degrees wide angle. I read somewhere that the Fisheye 2 has 170 degrees...I am not sure if which is right or whether the White Knight is special in that sense by having a larger angle over the rest.

    I look forward to your response!

    Many thanks.


  2. Oehh that Diana+ Dreamer is beautifull!
