Not only is the Diana Mini really cute and small (also making it super convenient), it has major creative power. Although at first glance, it may look like a toy because of its plastic design, the Diana Mini takes beautiful, vintage-inspired photos. With this little plastic camera, you can create vintage-quality photos comparable to the ones in your parents' black and white photo albums.

The Diana Mini comes from the original Diana F+, which first appeared in the 1960s. But unlike the original Diana, which used 120 film, the Diana Mini uses 35mm film--which you can find just about anywhere. It has a lot of great features, like the ability to switch from square to half-frame. You can have two images on one photo, giving you the potential to take up to 72 images on one roll of film.

Other features of the Diana Mini include a tripod mount, cable relase attachment (because everyone loves taking pictures of themselves), and four different focal possibilities. Stats for Little Lomo Cameras Trending: Older & Mild
