New members of the family
Most people will be familiar with this first camera.
While I have three Holgas, I found a Diana on eBay at a pretty good price and decided to give it a whirl.
As this is the F+ version, it also came with a book which will make for good reading no doubt.
This camera should come as more of a surprise to most - or at least it should because I was certainly caught off-guard when I saw it at an op shop this afternoon.
It looks like a chemist-special but the 400ISO film in it was expired in 2001, so should make for some interesting washed out effects.
According to the box, the film was made in Germany: maybe there's some really rare Agfa emulsion in there!
