    Comments about Lomography Diana+ 35mm Back:

    Purchasing 120 roll film is not as simple as it once was, and getting it developed is significantly more difficult. Allowing the use of 35mm film in my beloved Dianas is outstanding. The back comes with four different film masks, two of which allow exposure in the sprocket area. (Saves me getting a Sprocket Rocket from LOMO). Installation seems daunting at first when one only reads the directions, but there are several videos on YouTube showing this in great detail. I had no problems at all installing it after watching a couple of these short videos.

    The film advance is very, very solid and the counter is extraordinarily simple. Instead of guessing about a barely visible number in a red plastic window for when to quit advancing, one simply turns the dial until a white dot appears in the little window. To get an idea of how solid this unit is, it nearly doubles the weight of my DianaF+, but as it is a very light camera, this is not a problem. My only beef is that this back disallows using the leather case from LOMO, but this is certainly a very minor drawback. I am just now getting done with my first roll of B&W 35mm film and cannot wait to see the results. Oh, one more thing, since the 35mm negative is smaller than the 120, the image on the film only includes the center portion of the viewfinder. This unpredictability may be a drawback to some, but it adds a delightful element of anticipation and surprise for when I will actually see what is on each shot. I will update this review after I get back my images. Onward Krappy Kamera Kitsch Kapture with a most decidedly un-Krappy film back!

    This is an excellent alternative to carrying two non digital cameras, and of course, allows you to switch from 120mm to 35mm quickly and easily.

    Comments about Lomography Diana+ 35mm Back:

    The 35mm back is a little bit confusing to use at first, but once you've got it figured out, it's a great accessory to the Diana+. Eventually, it even makes using the Diana+ more economical as 35mm film is less expensive to develop than 120.

      Comments about Lomography Diana+ 35mm Back:

      The Diana+ 35mm Back is definitely a great buy if you don't want to spend extra money on 120mm film and getting it processed. It's inexpensive and will totally save you a lot more money if you used the standard 35mm film.After buying my first Diana+ camera, I immediately had installed this product. Installation is very simple, although can be confusing, as there tends to be extra pieces [...]. However, you can always change back to the 120mm back, which is always a good option. This product also comes with 4 plastic frames, 2 of which have sprocket holes which, personally, I think makes a photograph more artistic. All in all, I'm satisfied with my choice and haven't had any problems with it yet.

      Comments about Lomography Diana+ 35mm Back:

      I am a proud owner of a Diana+ F (glow in the dark) camera, and I love it! It takes amazing dream like pictures, however 120mm is a little hard to find and expensive to develop. With the Diana+ 35mm Back you can have your dreamy photo's without spending a fortune! My experience with the 35mm back is so far good, it's convenient and easy to attach to your camera. The only trouble I have found with it is the lock on the bottom can easily be unlocked and potentially can mess up the counter wheel.
