VIDEO: Lomography launches retro Diana Mini film camera

After bring the cult classic Diana camera back from the dead in 2007, Lomography is now offering a mini version of the plastic snapper.

The Diana Mini is a smaller version of the Diana F+ taking 35mm, rather than 120 film, but still offers users some interesting creative options.

You can still shoot medium-format-style square images as the camera includes a internal frame that cuts down the amount of film exposed into a smaller, square shape.

In addition, at the flick of a switch there's a half-frame option that sees a 35mm frame divided in two for a seperate image of each half of the frame, allowing for upto 72 pics on one roll of film.

Other features include multiple exposure and long exposure features, a tripod mount, a cable release attachment and the camera is compatible with the Diana F+'s flash.

The video above is actually a how-to for loading the film (aimed at all you digi-kids out there, we presume) but gives a decent overview of how the new small scale snapper looks.

If you like the look of it, then the Diana Mini is on sale over at the Lomo shop with a huge variety of different packages, with the basic Diana Mini Starter Kit price at £46.
