    Diana blimp - is the world ready?

    Diana and Holga Kool-Aiders notwithstanding, I never met a light leak I liked - either on a real camera or a toy camera. After having a few otherwise decent Diana shots ruined by light leaks I decided to do something about it. I have not had any problems since. (Plus my acne cleared right up.) Is it time to go commercial with the Diana Skin? If so I will need some candidates for names!

    OK that is fine.... That one will spare me for experimenting with tape and remembering where I put i last time....
    Name: DLLP that is Diana Light Leak Protector
    And I could use a template to make one myself.... Commercial, not sure... Diana-folks are 'do it yourself' folks.....

    Funny, I was thinking about this the other week for my Holga - like you, I want the lens effects, but not the light leaks, and did some searching on any sort of Holga "neverready" case, but came up empty.

    I might be willing to part with $5-10 for a Holga version of this, but then again I might be in the minority there (I'm assuming the material is not leather or anything expensive, as that would be kind of anti-thetical.)

    Actually if you already *do* have a Holga version of this, PM me and I might take it off your hands.
    i can't wait to take a picture of my thumb with this beautiful camera.

    Wouldn't it be easier to just flock the inside and put foam in the light trap grooves?
