Lomography Diana F + Edelweiss Edition Medium Format 120 Manual Focus Camera with Built-in Lens (White)

B&H # LODCWE Mfr # 554
You Pay: $49.99

Diana F+ Edelweiss Edition - Here's a classic that has been improved. This cult camera enjoyed incredible success in the 60s and has now been resurrected for a new generation of camera lovers.

This unique and fun camera offers the user an easy way to shoot medium format film. It's a simple camera with plastic lens, only two shutter settings (daylight & "B") and three aperture choices. It's a  manual focus camera that can be used to create some stunning "low res" images. Load up and you're ready to go.

This Diana, however, offers a removable lens revealing a tiny aperture for pinhole photography. In addition, the camera has a standard tripod socket and shutter lock so you can do long exposures without worrying about "camera shake".

            I got this camera so I could take "artsy" shots of various things, it's not going to replace my digital camera, but it's fun to just play around with.

              Comments about Lomography Diana F + Edelweiss Edition Medium Format 120 Manual Focus Camera with Built-in Lens (White):

              I own the Edelweiss Edition Diana and have put about 15 rolls of film through it. I love this camera. I come from a film background so I am used to "One shot, one kill," and I am always surprised and impressed with the dreamy, saturated pictures it produces. The controls are very basic and are meant for a photographer's "Best Guess," with the intention of semi-accidental shots.

              One note: These cameras are famous for light leaks. What that means for mine is it creates a brilliant red flash in the lower left corner of the first frame I take after it has been left alone for a while. Sometimes that means the shot is completely washed out and unrecognizable. I ended up getting a cool leather case for it and that has helped immensely. Still a touch of red, which I didn't want to have disappear completely, but the shot still has the right exposure.

              I've used this camera for vacations, random shots, and even some weddings. If you want to see what life looks like through a plastic lens, this is the camera for you.

              The best results I've gotten so far were shot with Kodak Portra 400NC film.

              Comments about Lomography Diana F + Edelweiss Edition Medium Format 120 Manual Focus Camera with Built-in Lens (White):

              I'm giving the Edelweiss 5 stars because it is what it is and it does what it says it will do - the rest is up to its operator.

              It's plastic and weighs nothing - especially compared to my fully loaded 7D - and it feels a little funny using it in public; but only at first. I find I take greater care with each shot and, even though this is a toy camera, it feels a bit more serious because she's not very forgiving (only 3 shots turned out on my first roll of 12 - oops!).

              It is a fun camera though and I love the feel of the photographs it produces. One note: If you plan to shoot using the pinhole, you may need to give the lens a good, hard twist - even though you feel like you're going to break the camera. It took me several tries before I screwed up the courage to go for it (and then I sliced my finger on the shutter lever).

              Second note: If you've not yet used 120mm film, keep an eye on the window for the numbers to appear when advancing. You'll feel as though you've wound the whole lot before seeing that little "1" appear :)

              Although we got off to a bumpy start, she's a much-welcomed addition to my camera bag and I'm always so excited to see what we've made together.

                This package includes more than just the camera, but a book about the art and history behind the camera. This camera is popular because of its flaws and the interesting photos and cult following that this camera has produced over the years. I am really excited to see what I can do with it, especially for the pinhole function.
