The super wide can't be used with the Ringflash mounted to the front, the regular flash can't be mounted with the super wide viewer. So I basically try not to use the Diana in a situation where i'd need a flash which is a bummer.
    I would give the Holga another go, if for no other reason that it also has lots of accessories, including a couple of fisheye lenses. I've tried the glass one and it really covers almost 180 degrees--and you can use a flash with it since the Holga has a hot shoe. I think the Lomo ring flash would fit over the fisheye, or vice-versa...you might have to put the lens on after mounting the camera onto the flash.

    You should have fun with the Blackbird Fly...or I suppose you could just wait for the Holga TLR that's coming...

    So funny I dug out my holga collection because I realized I had one that still worked. It doesn't have a N/B switch but I got myself a Holgaroid this weekend instead of getting the back for the Diana.

    I think the ringflash is going to fit with the lenses and the Holgaroid..crossing fingers going to check tonight. If it does...it will look like one crazy mutant camera!

    Hopefully the sun will make up it's mind to stay out this weekend so I can take it for a test drive I can't wait!
