Diana+ – Two 10s exposures at f150 – Ilford Pan F Plus
Developed in Ilford DDX at 1:4, 8 mins at 20°c.

An image from this year’s Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day taken with a charity shop find Diana+ camera.

The Diana+ has two pinhole modes… setting the aperture to ‘P’ and removing the lens gives a ‘true’ pinhole image, leaving the lens on gives what Lomography call a ‘Magnum’ image that is sharper and less wideangle than a ‘true’ image.

The above image is what happens when you forget to wind on between shots and accidentally record both types on one frame!

Diana+ – Lomo CN 400

I’m obviously still having problems with loading film into my charity shop find Diana+… I’m also getting too close to my subject matter as most of my shots are far too tightly framed, a problem exacerbated by my dodgy film loading technique.

This shot is OK though, something I spotted during a wander around Cosne-sur-Loire in the Nièvre department in central France.

Square Saturday… Another pic from the Diana+

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800

While I’m eagerly awaiting the postie rattling the letter box with an envelope of negatives from AgLab (an envelope that should include two rolls from my charity shop find Diana+), I thought I’d post another image from my first roll with said camera…

Lots more vignetting on this pic and I can only assume that this is down to the wider aperture (the ‘cloudy’ setting) that I used for this, the first shot on the roll.

Square Saturday… First roll in the Diana+

Diana+ – Lomo CN 800

A shot from my first roll in a charity shop find Diana+ camera. I’m not entirely sure how I messed up the film loading but none of the images are even remotely centred on the negative strip, they’re all cropped by the top edge of the film…

I’m quite fond of the little beast though and have a couple more rolls from it waiting development.
