Last week I told you about my Diana lens, and thought I’d share with you some of the results. (Click the picture to see it bigger)
I haven’t edited these photos at all, just adjusted the size so they’re a bit easier to see, but I quite like them.
They have quite a soft look to them, which I actually like. It does take some patience to get a half decent photo – the photo of my makeup was the best of a bad bunch of at least 12! This might put people off the lens, but look at it this way – its a digital camera, so you can take as many photos as you need to. I found that it needed to be kept still to get a clearer photo when not using the flash (the centre photo of the postcards is the only one I used the flash on) but I used my tripod (I think it was about Ã‚Â£15 from Argos a few years ago, it looks pretty similar to this one at Amazon* though) and the remote (which cost me Ã‚Â£20 a few years ago from a little shop in Chester. For some reason, they don’t sell this model anymore, instead replacing it with one thats 3 times bigger and doesn’t clip onto the strap)
I’m not sure I would have spent the Ã‚Â£47 (including shipping to the UK) that it should have cost me on Lomography, but for Ã‚Â£20, this is a nice little toy to have.
I do like the soft look to them, and it does sound less faff than film, but I think your right, Ã‚Â£47 is rather a lot… Although nothing compared to some lenses!
photos aside, you have a cupcake teapot? *invites self over*
it’s good to see the results of this lens. i like.
I just got this lens for myself and I’m still toying around with it. I’m a fan of a sharp images, so the softness throws me off a big, But I think I will try it with a tripod and flash and she I prefer the results :)
