LOMOGRAPHY DIANA F+
US$89
The original Diana box camera
attained a cult-like popularity,
thanks to the blurry dreamlike
results with vignetting – the
intentional darkening of
image corners – it produces.
Although the original is a rare
find, the revamped Diana F+
achieves the same soft-focus
photography. This analogue
camera uses 120 film, but can
also shoot with Fujifilm Instax
Mini filmwith the Diana Instant
Back+ (sold separately). Choose
from two shutter speeds for
day and night photography, and
decide if you’ll like 12 full frame
shots or 16 smaller square
images. You can even unscrew
the lens to try your hand at
pinhole photography.

IDEA L
FOR A
RUN
A ROUND
TOWN
FUJIFILMX100S
US$1,299
Compact and light, this digital
camera is ideal for a run around
town without straining your
neck. Its fixed 23mm lens
(equivalent to 35mm on a
35mm format) is great for street
photography, when you want to
quickly capture images without
the hassle of changing lenses.
With its silent shutter, you won’t
startle your subjects – all the
better for candid shots. Plus, an
optical viewfinder helps when
you don’t want to miss any
of the excitement happening
around you. Fujifilm cameras
generally produce images with
good colour reproduction and
its X100S is no different.

inspired cameras – fitted with the latest
technology. Old meets new in stylish clarity.
