Sometimes your camera can help you capture a brilliant moment. And other times, the thing of beauty is the camera itself. Case in point: the special, limited edition Diana F+ Explorer Nocturne medium format film camera. Between the copper color scheme, the starry night graphics, and the furry little fox staring out at you — plus the matching flash unit — this lo-fi, analogue camera is a dream.
Diana F+ cameras, likes Holgas, are lightweight box cameras with plastic bodies and very basic shutter systems and shoot 120 film format and 35 mm film. Popular in the 1960s, the simple-looking cameras could almost pass for inexpensive toy cameras. But the resulting soft-focus, drenched-in-color photos are anything but child’s play. In fact, there’s an entire photography movement called lomography that lives for this artsy, unique image style.
For even more fun and experimentation, the Diana F+ series cameras work with five interchangeable lenses, including Fisheye and Super Wide, giving you high drama photos from a low-tech film camera.
This special limited edition camera is spilling over with so much cool and creative, I think I see the words Perfect Holiday Gift written right there on the camera… next to our foxy friend. Can you see it too?
