Medium-format, questionable build and instant prints? Lomography has hit yet another trifecta with the new Diana F+ Instant Film, a low-fi shooter that adds instant printing capability to one of the company’s most popular models.
Formerly, instant shooting enthusiasts had to fork out $90 for an Instax film back for their Diana F, which didn’t seem to make sense given that the camera itself only cost $90. The new model puts them together for $140, a savings of $40.
Plus, that price includes the original medium format back, so you still have the option to remove the Instax back and shoot regular medium-format film.
The downside here is that the Instax back packs all the “legendary” build quality synonymous with the Lomo name. Amazon reviews include a lot of “worked great for the first two or three shots” comments, so a “buyer beware” warning is in order.
Still, assuming the camera doesn’t break down on you, the Diana F+ will work with all of the fun Diana lenses and accessories, while also offering features like multiple exposures and pinhole shooting.
