This is one of the original Diana cameras manufactured in the 1960's by the Great Wall Plastic Factory in Hong Kong. It is in very good working condition, but has a few notable cosmetic flaws - namely some light scratches on the top of the camera, and a bit of dark brown glue residue around the lens where it is missing a metal rim (see last photo). Both of these blemishes are only noticeable upon close inspection.

Cheap novelty cameras from the 1960's like the Diana, Lomo, and Holga became desirable to professional photographers for the beautiful, soft focus images they created. These aren't high quality cameras, quite the opposite in fact, but its their flaws that have made them legendary. Light leaks because of their faulty plastic construction, plus a cheap plastic lens translate to moody, atmospheric, dream-like photos.

If you want sharp, detailed images, look elsewhere, but if you want super saturated, soft, accidentally artistic compositions without the hassle of F-stops or shutter speeds, this little retro camera should do the trick. It shoots 16 4X4 images on a roll of 120 film.

Thanks for looking! If you love vintage cameras, check out the "camera bag" section of my shop!
