I’ve been crazy over lo-fi cameras since 2002 when I first saw the supersampler/frog eye in Christal’s house. It was so much fun playing around with it, even with no films inside -__-
Then last year, i was introduced to Diana series by Kimmie because before that I intended to get Holga. Anyway, I can’t afford any of it .
Until earlier this year, I got the UWS to add to my le familiaz :)) Then I got my first roll of UWS developed, i so loved the end result, which pushed me further into looking at getting a diana vs holga. But diana eventually won due to the vast lenses and versatility it offers.
Do you know how out of of the world I felt when I know that an instant back can be fitted to Diana = producing the best of both world, best combination. INSTANT LOMOGRAPHY!!! that would have to wait though, until i get a firm grip it.
It was so damn difficult to get the lomo that you want, not mentioning a reasonable price one. After I did some homework, I decided to get DianaF+ Qing Hua from lomokids. They offer a HUGE range in malaysia that is at a very reasonable price. Cheaper than Mooks or those at Wondermilk. The only downside is they have a 10 days lead time for the item to arrive.
That’s why most of the people on my MSN list were wondering “who the hell is diana!! ” as my status reads: Diana come to mama!! and when I tell them sheepishly “its a toy camera” most responded with a long
So unlike MrSmallFace, who by the way, got Diana for me!!!! ♥♥♥♥ Early birthday present. To avoid any disappointment, real smart move. hahaha!
I got the camera from Jimbab? Sorry i did not really get your name. He was really nice and friendly. Guiding me and already giving me advice on how to go about making full use of Diana! Definitely will recommend anyone who intend to get a camera from lomokids. On time in delivering and helpful too.
I realize there’s lots of exclamation mark in this post, which usually doesn’t really happen. But I’m realllly really happy that I finally gotten my hands on a DIANAAAAA!!!
Here it is!!
So pretty isn’t it.
