a review: Diana wide angle lens


This blog post is about one of my all time favourite cameras and now my one of my favourite lenses. The Diana Comes with a standard 25mm lens that iv never really had a problem with until my ever so kind brother bought me the 38mm super wide angle lens. wow. It is a total game changer when it comes to this camera. I must be honest that i havnt used my Diana in a couple of months, due to the fact that it is a medium format camera and the film is really expensive in relation to the number of photos you get from it, a maximum of 16. With this lens attached however i think i will be using my Diana more and more, especially for photo shoots and the like. The Diana is a great Camera because it allows for a number of attachments that other Lomography camera's do not support but in my opinion without this super wide angle lens you are better off buying a Holga, Diana is about lenses and if you dont collect a few it will never reach its full capability. Here are 4 photo's that i recently took with this lens.

Mini Mixatape 2/4

So this is Double Adapters second Mini Mixtape for Mfm. Soundcloud allows 100 downloads and the first Mixtape ran out of downloads in 24 hours. This one lasted 12. Im really enjoying making the album artwork. Its simple but works perfectly i think. Hope you enjoy it, it contains our very first single "Eat you alive!" which will be released within the next few weeks, now all i have to do is find a hot model to be near on naked for the album artwork...

Art Fag. mixtape. song for the day.

Hi. Well for a change im giving Tuesday a break, well in reality Tuesday broke me, and giving Thursday a shot at its old glory. So this Thursday at Bob Rocks in Greenside i am pleased to bring you Art Fag Thursday. its gonna be oh so arty. expect the usual of getting far too drunk, creating some performance art on the dance floor and getting home way after your bed time. Your Dj's for the night are myself and the ever arty Destrukto. You can expect happy hours through out the night to keep your blood alcohol content on a constant uphill.

Ok the next little gem described in the heading of this blog post is a mixtape and this time its from Double Adapter, oh the self promotion, we are Mfm's "band" of the month and are releasing 4 mini mixtapes in the month of june to celebrate this. i was interviewed by them last thursday and was a little too drunk to carry myself properly, i forgot how to spell adapter. whoopsy. so enjoy this mixtape if you are into your pounding techno music.

Later kids.

A Review: Yunon Yn 600

I got this Great little Cam about a year ago and have mentioned it in my previous post about my favourite cameras. its a 50mm fixed glass lens with a plastic body and only 4 settings: Sunny, Sunset, Partly cloudy and cloudy. these photographs were taken when it was brand new, and when i say brand new i mean when i bought it second hand from Deer Hunter in Greenside, the best place to pick up great second hand Cameras! it came in its original box with the warranty and a strap for it. notice the scratches on the lens, that kind of thing makes me super happy. the only issue that i had with it was that it was super fragile and cracked it a few times. i taped it up and it is in perfect, well not perfect, condition. yay for light leaks! hope you enjoy the photographs.

Em at the Junksale

back catalogue

tonight i listened to the entire Bloc Party back catalogue from start to finish. including all the remix albums and obscure b sides. iv never managed to do this so im pretty proud of my self. i listened to it in the reverse order of how they were release, so i started with intimacy and ended with silent alarm. compliments was the last track i listened to just over half an hour ago. its still ringing in my head.
