The 35mm Diana + Result

2a-5a 35mm film in a Diana
Well, I have had my first roll developed from the 35mm film in the Diana + experiment and have learned a couple of things: 

  • 1. I needed to wind on a little more than I first thought for at least the first half of the roll, perhaps one & 1/4 turns of the winder rather than the (approx) one turn¬†that I first suggested (I corrected my original video tutorial post) – having said that, the resultant overlaps produced some interesting results.
  • 2. I must remember that the exposed area is cropped top and bottom from my 120 exposures, and should compose my shots Hal-ish (35mm in the Diana +)accordingly.


I found the results quite interesting and will definitely be doing this again. Click on the thumbnails to see more (& larger) shots from the first 35mm Diana roll.

    Is is just me, or is this a re-post? Anyway- I like the results- I have to say, much more than I would have expected… probably won’t be running out to get one though- the MF is one of the reasons I really like my 120N. I do really like the effect of the top set all squished together though- makes for a great montage type shot.

    It’s not just you Jason, this is a repost! Foolishly I lost all my posts in ‘the great update to WordPress 2.5 disaster’ of a couple of weeks ago. My database back ups weren’t all I thought they were, so I’m going to have to manually re-post most of my items from a conveniently mostly populated rss feed for the site.
    Funny, I like the montaged together look of the overlaps too, even though they were unintentional!
