Some things are just better in small packages. Ritz crackers, for example, taste even better when they’re itty bitty, bit-sized peanut butter sandwiches. Mini bikes are a lot more fun (and less dangerous) than regular motorcycles…plus, what would Shriners drive around in parades if they hadn’t been invented? And that computer you’re reading this blog on might be all tiny and compact now, but it was only 60 years ago when they took up entire rooms.
Someone at Lomography must have realized this, because they’ve taken the highly popular Diana F+ and shrunken it down to the Diana Mini. The camera joins a long list of small things with Mini in the name that includes the iPod Mini, Minnie Mouse, and Mini-Me. Reminiscent of her bigger sister in every way other than size, this pint-sized beauty’s stand out features are the ability to shoot the ultra rare Square format on 35mm film or, with the flick of the switch, to take half frame shots: two pictures together, side by side. You can get even more creative using the cameras Multiple Exposure and Long Exposure features, and the whole package contains a tripod mount and a cable release attachment.
You can get one from Lomography’s online store sans film for a cool $60.
