Hello... Diana Mini!
This Christmas I was lucky enough to receive a Diana Mini (with flash!) from Ben. I've been swooning over this camera for a good long time but have never been able to justify buying it for myself. Needless to say I was silly with excitement when I opened it.
As well as the super cute camera itself, the bundle came with quite possibly the most sexy flash around, a set of colour gel filters, two adaptors (one Diana-to-hot shoe flash adaptor and one hot-shoe-to-Diana flash adaptor) and a copy of the Shot Forever Diana Mini book.
I was keen to get snapping as soon as possible, so over the weekend I took it everywhere we went, including Greenwich, Trafalgar Square and the South bank. I've nearly used up my first roll, so will hopefully have some shots to share soon. For now, here's some nice Diana Mini related links I've found in my searches...
Everything Reminds Me of You (lots of lovely lo-fi examples)
591 Photography Blog (some Gothic black and white beauties)
See Hear Say (great Diana Mini shots in Vietnam)
Mizhenka (various adventures around London)
Erica Knits (some bright and colourful nature shots)
Got any tips for getting the most out of the Diana Mini?
