    I have owned three Diana clones, although I've only shot film through one so far. I ended up selling that camera before I saw the results.

    The pictures were total crap...I wish I had kept it! I hope the remaining two cameras suck also.

    Put it in a box and ship it to a friend by UPS.
    I think you mean the USPS. ;-)

    Nope, UPS kills far more of my packages than USPS. Normally all my USPS stuff comes through with no signs of damage. Every UPS box I get and destroyed.

    IME the Holgas are generally provide much more clarity and less distortion than the Dianas. I have three different Dianas and they all have much more distortion than my Holga. I agree with what others have said -- just modify your lens a bit to make more distortion.

    Attached are two images: first is with Holga on NeoPan 400, second is Diana on XP2 Super.

    You may also remove the "aperture", a plastic thing behind the lens. It's very easy to disassemble/assemble. Use iso 100 film to compensate for the wider aperture (in most daylight situations). You will end up getting much softer pictures...

    ah great, those last posts are very helpfull! The aparture mod seems to make a lot of sense. The side by side comparison is also nice.
    I;ll try some stuff out, and will be searching for a diana too.
    thanks Game

    You could always upgrade to a pinhole camera. An improperly sized pinhole is no sharper than a Holga lens. An ultra wide-angle pinhole camera has even more vignetting. By curving the film you can get as much distortion, too.

    Get a junk store camera. see www.junkstorecameras.com for more info on what ones are truly crap and what ones are decent enough to use.

    I second the pinhole suggestion of Jim Jones.
