The Diana’s Plastic Revolution: Highlights from the Detrich Collection
As people picked up the Diana, more and more manufacturers kept making their own version of the charming little camera. These clones carried different names and styles but still kept the quirky retro cool of the Diana. One particular collector amassed an impressive Diana stash through countless eBay bids and purchases. Photographer and avid collector Allan Detrich then sold his camera collection to the Lomographic Society in 2007 – the resulting treasure was the famed “Detrich Collection.”
Clones come and go, but that doesn’t make them any less special! And in line with the Lomography dream queen’s 6th birthday, we’ve compiled a list of six Diana F+ and Diana Mini clones that have captured our affections over the years. Feel free to add your favorites!
Upon deciding to jump into the Lomographic world, I bought myself my first Lomo camera—the Diana F+ Metropolis edition. Read why I think the Diana F+ is a good choice for anyone who’s just getting into analogue.
