Lomography Diana Instant Square Hero

Lomography Diana Instant Square Hero

Today, Lomography announced the launch of their newest instant camera that combines the imperfections of the Diana F “toy camera” with the retro-cool of Fujifilm’s Instax Square format film. For the photographer that longs for go-go boots and the flair of the 1960’s simple-use cameras, the Diana Instant Back + brings all the retro aesthetics to not just the camera but the image it produces.

Why We’re Excited

Lomography Diana Instant Square Lifestyle

While the Diana family of cameras are often overlooked, even among film photographers, the Diana is a camera that puts creativity above everything else. The imperfections captured on this camera are the key draw to its appeal and with some practice, allow you to create a style of image that cannot be reproduced digitally (trust us, we’ve tried). The Diana is an interchangeable lens system camera and uses the Diana F+ bayonet mount which means you’ll be able to use any of the existing Diana F+ lenses including a 110 mm telephoto lens, 75 mm glass lens, 20 mm fisheye lens, 38 mm super-wide-angle lens, and a 55 mm wide-angle lens which comes with a close-up attachment.

The Kickstarter just went live today and for the super-early birds among you, they’re offering a steep discount on the new camera. While we typically shy away from covering Kickstarters, Lomography has a great track record of exceeding their Kickstarter goals and delivering on their promises. We think this is one worth checking out. Be sure to check out the gallery below including a handful of sample images.
