Diana Mini F+ Clones $175
The Diana Mini hails from the famous medium-format Diana F+ family. This family continues to grow and we would like to introduce to you to the latest Diana Mini F+ clones. The Diana Mini En Rose and Diana Mini Petite Noir.
The Diana Mini En Rose is extra-sweet and charming in its rosy pink colour, this little plastic camera takes lovely 35mm pictures, and allows you to shoot in two formats – square or half-frames. A single roll of film (36 shots) gives you 72 shots if you’re using the half-frame option!
The Diana Mini Petite Noir, clad in a classy black outfit, this black beauty is a total stunner! The Diana Mini Noir emits a classic, mysterious vibe with its sleek look while giving you convenient 35mm half-frames and squares.
The Diana Mini En Rose and Petite Noir carries all the same features and options as the classic Diana Mini F+ version including the Diana Flash Black with color gel filters. Slip one into the flash and beam some colored light into your pictures!
Due to its extra-small size, the Diana Mini is not compatible with full-size Diana F+ lens and back accessories, but offers full compatibility with the Diana Flash!
Available in: Petite Noire (black), En Rose (pink)

Right here we have a slightly miniaturized version of the original medium format Holga. Like its older sibling, it’s got an all-plastic lens, two shutter settings, and two aperture settings. Its advance and shutter are uncoupled- meaning that you can shoot unlimited multiple exposures on the same frame. Its images are dripping with color, contrast, a slight softness, and a whole lotta soul. For that classic Holga look, with the ease of 35mm film development, this guy can’t be beat.
Also available, the Holga 35mm Black Corner! The latest addition to the Holga pantheon is the mysterious Holga 35mm Black Corner. The secret is in its unique masking effect, offering you shadowy vignette tunnels at the edges of your photos – thus the ‘Black Corner’ moniker.
