A full-frame treat for the wide-angle connoisseur. Imagine taking that Diana+ image that you know and love, letting in a ton of new info and content from all around your head (including a lot that your eyes can't see) and s-t-r-e-t-c-h-i-n-g it all out to the very corners of your frame.
Roughly equivalent to a 25mm lens on a standard 35mm camera (a yielding a 120° View Angle), this classic super-wide perspective is a favorite of street photographers and photojournalists the world over. And for good reasons! Close subjects assume an in-your-face urgency (and slightly stretched out noses).
City and country-scapes take on a sweeping and grandiose air. The dreamy look n' feel of the classic Diana+ image is fully maintained, with signature darkening and a bit of blurriness at the corners. Includes accessory viewfinder, viewfinder mount, and lens caps.

Using the product to get an old time, creative view. Was difficult to stay attached to the adapter/converter so I eventually cemented it.
I bought this lens to experiment Lomography on my Nikon D300, unfortunately I don't find any practical use to it, it's just a toy that produces low quality images at a high price. I wouldn't give it a everyday use and that makes me think twice before I change lenses in my camera.
I purchased this along with the Nikon F mount adapter for my Nikon D50. I own a Holga, so I know what to expect for image quality (soft focus, ghosting). Mounting it seems to be lack luster as it spins while you try to focus it (it has a focus wheel like any other lens). At first I was annoyed by it since I had to hold the lens on while I focused, but once you get the focus where you want it, it stays. Though this can be an advantage as I noticed that you can pull the lens off and just place it in front of the mount and still get and image that increases ghosting. The effect is pretty cool and is nice to have if you don't want to spend hours in post processing trying to replicate the same look. Overall for the price you really can't go wrong. I also have a Nikon 801s film SLR that I'm going to put this on some time soon. Not something I'll have as a constant go to, but it's a fun art lens I can put on real quick for a different look.
A nice wide angle lens. Good field of view. Once you get the standard lens off I suggest wiping a little WD-40 sprayed onto a Q-tip on the lens notches to aid in putting on and taking off the lens.
