Resembling a favorite toy camera, but updated for fun instant film photography, the Lomography Diana Instant Square Camera merges the worlds of lo-fi photography with instant, shareable prints. Accepting INSTAX SQUARE film, this camera outputs 6.1 x 6.1 cm square images with each shot. As a Diana camera, it has the distinctive blue and black plastic housing, along with a removable 75mm lens that provides a 38mm-equivalent field of view for a general wide-angle look. The lens is threaded to accept optional lens attachments or filters in order to achieve telephoto, fisheye, wide-angle, or creative effects. Also, the lens has manual aperture adjustment along with zone focusing control for working as close as 1 meter away. Alternatively, the lens can be removed and an f/150 pinhole setting can be used for creative, lens-less shooting. In classic Diana fashion, there is a single 1/100 sec shutter speed setting as well as a bulb setting for making long exposures, and an unlimited number of multiple exposures can be made, too.
While formally resembling a Diana from the '60s, this instant version has also been updated with an integrated selfie mirror along with a detachable optical viewfinder for making accurate compositions. There is also a connection for attaching either of the included plugs for working with an external flash—either a hot shoe plug or the dedicated Diana flash plug.
