"Diana Cameras "
DIANA TYPES: Camera manufacturing and "badge engineering" have gotten a bit carried away at times. One camera
which is in strong competition for the title of "Same Camera with the Most Names" is the Diana type, an inexpensive eye-level
camera for 120 film. Most take only a 4x4cm image although some of the "Deluxe" models use more of the available film with a
5.5x5.5cm image. Generally with focusing lens; single-speed shutter and sometimes B. Some have body release. Some are
synchronized and they even exist with built-in flash. These cameras have continued to be popular among some photographers who
enjoy the distorted effects of the cheap lenses. Others use them for training classes in photography.
