Diana F+ | first encounter

Few weeks ago my son asked me to buy him a 120mm analog camera. I searched for the cheapest one and got my eyes landed on a post that sold holga and diana. It's only $70 for second stuff which is a perfect price for my 4 years old son's toy. So I decided to take the diana.

Though I'm an analog camera collector, I've never put any expectations on any of those old cameras. As long as it's still okay to use, I will just keep it. Once the diana arrived, I brought it for a photoshoot to test if it's still working and I'm kinda amused by the results. I still couldn't find where to arrange the focus and got a minimum informations on that day. but still, I'm very happy with the results.

so here's my first day of using this diana f+ and I will make another review about what I found on this sweet baby.
