I bought my first two Diana cameras, a regular Diana and a Diana F, both for five bucks at a thrift store in Grayland, WA. At that time the Diana camera was going for $100 and better on eBay. Those boom times have passed and you can now pick up a Diana – or one of her many sisters, for a song.
“The Diana, it’s okay, but a little too complicated in comparison to most junk store finds (you have to focus it).”
I made two incredibly silly-ass videos using a Sony Mavica. I have a lot of good memories of THAT camera – the Mavica. It stored files on a floppy disc. You could shoot a 15 second video on one disk, then you had to insert a new one. Links to the silly-ass .mpg videos:
Here’s a tip. If you have a Diana F, but no flash accessory, you can easily find an Imperial flash attachment for cheap or free and it will fit and function on your Diana F.
