Below is a collection of cool Diana Cameras from the 1960s and 1970s. These vintage cameras, made in Hong Kong were sold in the U.S. and Europe and were inexpensive film cameras that used 120 roll film. The cameras were fairly popular during their day, but have become quite a cult item today. An entire branch of photography has emerged since the early 1990s called Lomography which is both a style of photography and a camera brand from Austria who bought the rights to the Diana cameras. These Diana cameras and Diana clones, including the famous Holga, have been celebrated for their cheapness. Their light leaks, plastic lenses, and unpredictable behavior give a beautiful abstract quality to the photographs they take. They are a must have for many photographers, even today. Some photographers who prefer not to shoot film but still want the Lomographic look, will remove the lens from a Diana or Holga camera, and modify it to work on their modern SLRs. For the rest of us, there’s an easier way to take Lomographic style pictures with your iPhone; check out the Instagram app. Happy shooting!
