I am finally taking one of the Dianas out of the locker to test. I realize that whenever you try something out for the first time, testing helps establish the "character" of the piece.

I would like to minimize the amount of film I waste by getting at least a starting reference. I want to assume that since this is a tourist camera from the 50s that the manufacturer set it to operate according to the sunny 16 rule (ISO 100, f16 at a 60th).

Has anyone here used this model and could you give me some insight on it's exposure characteristics?

Thanks for the help

Mark
