DIANA MINI & FLASH

It was fate. You don't understand how long I've been wanting the dina mini, after I fell in love with my Lomography fish eye camera a couple of years ago. Not so much wanting to pay the £90 for the traditional blue one. So, picture this, I'm skipping down Kensington High Street with my Mum (Mum, not skipping so much after me dragging her around the shops), popping into Urban Outfitters, had a lil' browse (haul post coming soon most probably , going over to the lovely book-camera-music-y section, and there it is. In it's little box in the sale, £50. In my opinion, that's a miracle in itself...and I really like the coral shade too. But it doesn't stop there. Feeling pretty pleased with myself, I took it up to the till, the guy was like 'dya need any film?' I'm like 'narrrrrrrrr', (boots film 4eva), he pops it in a bag, I walk out quite surprised by the total amount I paid for all of the things, I look at the receipt- guess how much? GUESSSSSSSSS? ok, ok, TWENTY FIVE GREAT BRITISH POUNDS. For real, you can call me the bargain queen. (I think it was more luck and I didn't want to question why it was so cheap).

"a perfect fusion of sweet and petite"

Now, onto the camera, what I love about (all) Lomography cameras is the retro, yet funky appearance of them. The box in itself is pretty- coming with a little book full of inspirations prints and tips on how to use it. It takes 35mm film which is handy because it's easier to buy and what I love (compared to the fish eye) is you have lots and lots of different buttons to fiddle around with to change the settings and you can also overlap exposures which I'm looking forward to trying out. It's a shame I'm a bit pants at photography really. Anyway, I'm looking forward to take some pictures and get them all developed- my favourite part! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek.

The moral of this blog post is to have a look in the camera bit of Urban Outfitters. That is all. Do you have this camera? I'd love to have some tips!

PS: Sorry about the long post- and I'll be replying to comments next week...as soon as this Literature exam has be done!
