Item Description
For sale is a gently used Diana F+ medium format camera in very good overall condition.

I originally purchased this camera about six months ago to experiment with both pinhole photography and 120 format film. I went with the Diana F+ over other toy camera options (Holga) because it has a built-in pinhole sized aperture option along with typical "daylight" and "cloudy" aperture positions. The f-stop size of the pinhole is about f/150. I've had my fun with the camera and now it's time to give someone else a try.

As I said, the overall condition of the camera is very good. The lens is free of scratches and the rest of the camera is in good working mechanical order. The lens cap has a few marks on it, but that's the only physical blemish you'll find. I'll mention I did not need to add any additional flocking inside the camera, though I did rig an old ID card cut in half and taped in position to force the film to wind more firmly on the take-up spool. That rigging has been removed, but there are plenty of resources online describing how people have pimped their Diana cameras.

If you're looking at buying this little camera I'm assuming you're familiar with the kinds of images one can expect a toy camera to produce. The Diana is fun to use and randomness in images is the rule rather than the exception for standard operation.

The camera will come will all original papers and its original box. I will also include a roll of Fuji ISO 100 Reala color negative film.
