Anyway, I'm a bit hesitant to use film again, but I bought a SLR adapter and a Diana wide focus lens to use with my Canon. I gave it a try this morning and I was quite pleased with the result!
So would I recommend this lens? Hmm. I do love the photos, but I found the lens would be better for either portrait shots or wide angle photos, rather than just everyday use. I had to stand quite far back from the subject of the photos, because then lens made everything an EXTREME CLOSE UP. I imagine that it would be great for taking photos while travelling, though - imagine a scenery shot with that Diana effect! I do love the dreamy, soft focus effect, but I think I might try using the normal Diana lens with my SLR next time (or, you know, just my Diana, when I get over my 'film' jitters!).
If you're interested in trying it out, I used a Diana F+ lens adapter for Canons, and a Diana+ 110m soft focus lens.
What do you think? Do you use a Diana (or any other film camera)? Got any tips on where to get it developed in Perth? Please don't say Crystal Pictures in Morley :(
