A friend of mine on flicker sent me a message, quite concerned that she had stuffed up her Diana + camera by putting on one of it’s accessory lenses the wrong way. She had put her fisheye lens on without aligning the white dots and was also finding it quite stiff when trying to remove the lens. She eventually did remove the lens, but it must have been a bit fragile as it fell into a few pieces.
Normally putting accessory lenses onto a Diana + camera just involves getting the lens in the right position and giving a clockwise turn to secure it. You do the reverse to remove the lens. On initial usage the lens can be quite firmly engaged and you do need to use a bit of a firm twist to remove it, but this action usually loosens up a bit with repeated use and time. If you mis-align the lens, it won’t break your camera, but you will find the distance settings aren’t positioned where you expect them on the barrel. The alignment dots are for ergonomic reasons more than anything, so you can get to the distance adjustments easily.
