    Interest or support for a Diana image exchange?

    Just curious if there would be interest in an exchange of Diana (or clone) images. If not enough interest in Diana, perhaps it could be widened to include Holga or other toy cameras.

    I'm game if it remains limited exclusively to Diana or her clones.

    No AGFA Jsoly?

    I know it doesn't have enough vignetting to be compared with a Diana...

    Exactly! No Holgas or Lomos! I have boundary issues.

    Banners, Dories, Windsors, etc., would be OK. Anything in the same shell of the original Diana would be OK.

    Actually, I would prefer it to be exclusively Diana, but I'm trying to open up a bit and you know, be progressive. (Wouldn't want to be thought of as a Luddite Elitist.)

    I would be in if it included Holgas. If not, I will leave it to the Diana elitists.

    I'll be into it. I agree if it is soley a Diana thing. I have way too many toy cameras and my Diana never gets used. I'd like to use it more.
    Could it be postcard size or does it have to be a certain size?

    Toy camera elitism? Seriously, get a grip.
    I'll gladly participate if Holgas are an acceptable substitute or someone is willing to loan me a Diana or give me the $40 to buy one of those plastic miracles from e*ay. If there's an un-loved Diana out there, send it along. Personally, I don't even leave for work without at least one Holga.

    Not really. There are a TON of plastic toy cameras out there (I'm on the toycamera.com forum as well as Leon and others). Most likely, anything with a half ass lens is used. Then we'll be getting prints from Lomos, Lubitels, Isolas, Clacks, Holgas, Wocas, Spiratone Portagons, box cameras, folding cameras...yikes. When do you stop? Then you might as well just have a regular plain old print exchange.
    I personally wouldn't mind getting more Diana images. I got one from Susan Bernstein and it was real nice. Holgas...been using it since 1990 and I'm tired of it. Images are starting to look really the same from all the Holga stuff I've been seing but I'd like to see more Diana shots. They seem to have a more etheral look to it.
