Have you ever finished shooting a roll of 120mm film in a Diana F+ Camera only to find the roll very loose (light leaks, anyone?) …I’m all for some light leaks now and then- part of the fun with the Diana- but a loose roll that was NOT intentional can be a real problem! Here is a super quick video blog on how to load 120mm film in a Diana F+ camera and KEEP the film spool tight! This video demonstrates a modification to the film tabs that has proven very successful in over 100+ rolls of 120mm film pushed through my own Dianas!
Please note the video is high quality so it may take a few seconds to load.

As many of you know I have been working with the Diana F+ camera for some time now for my new series of artworks, A New Eden. In the course of making these works I have spent considerable time working out what I feel is a fast reliable exposure system for the Diana Camera and I have now decided to share the results…(drumroll please)… may I present the Shoot Diana Exposure Calculator. Each chart is a premium vinyl adhesive sticker that can be attached to your camera back or the top of the Diana flash and provides easy to read information for a vast variety of shooting situations for both ISO 100 and 400 speed films.
The Shoot Diana Exposure Calculator differs from the FREE exposure calculator I posted a few days ago, in that it gives the required number of shutter clicks at “N” (1/60th) on the Diana to make the correct exposure for each situation AND it becomes part of your camera (see photo) so there is no way to lose it or forget to put it in your bag… Oh, and did I forget to mention that it is really cheap? Christmas is coming, people!

First I’d like to announce that as of today- November 19, 2008- the Figital Revolution has had over 100,000 hits… Hot damn! Viva la revolution!!!!
Of course, while we are up- the DOW was down, waaay down. This might put a damper on anyone’s good cheer, particularly anyone considering retiring in the next decade, SO- I decided to brighten things up a bit and release a FREE Exposure Guide for the Diana+ and F+ cameras. Hey- these days something’s got to be free, right? The direct link is here:
