    Simple, cheap filters for the Diana F+

    So, after scouring the interwebs looking for some sort of kludge to allow me to attach filters to my Diana, it occured to me that I could add them behind the lens instead of in front. I cut circles out of a Rosco Cinegel sample pack and they fit perfectly between the camera body and the lens. It's stupendously cheap. Super simple (and compact) and it still allows me to adjust the focus of the lens without having something in the way.

    Hurray for cheap solutions!

    Neat idea, I make lens caps for my Argus C-3s out of pill bottle caps.

    Like the idea a lot! But aren't you afraid of degrading the image? (heh, heh)

    I know, right? How could I possibly make it worse?

    The only drawback I can see is that if I decide to use the pinhole option, the filters don't stay in place.

    Years ago when I shot a lot of toy cameras, I found that these old Poloroid filters fit right on the lens of a Diana. I think I picked them up at eBay for a couple of bucks. Too easy and cheap to pass up!
