Lomography Diana Classic F+ Instant Camera

Lomography Diana Classic F+ Instant Camera is a lightweight camera with a plastic lens that produces dream-like quality pictures. It has two shutter speeds (N and B) for daytime and nighttime respectively. Its erratic picture-taking, and flimsy appearance might be a deal breaker for some, but it's otherwise fun and friendly to use.

Features

The camera has a detachable flash that dazzling, which allows you to mount or unmount it depending on the lighting of the room. Its plastic lens captures dreamy images and is perfect for the hipster-throwback photo scene, making it the best classic toy camera. Also, Lomography Diana Classic F+ Instant Camera has both manual and automatic shutter modes (pinhole exposure mode). Interchangeable lens functionality makes the camera versatile. The big negatives provide for a lot of resolution, enabling you to pull more details out of them unlike with the 35mm.
