    Am I right in thinking a Diana camera, like this - http://www.urbanoutfitters.co.uk/lom...es,photography

    takes photos like this -http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://www.zinkwazi.com/blog/images/20080324224225_img138blog.jpg&im grefurl=http://www.zinkwazi.com/blog/1064&usg=__Pl6DcWKYcaHjdhb_7Lyp_ g4wLhU=&h=600&w=600&sz=157&hl=en &start=0&zoom=1&tbnid=nlbFV8u H-X9o-M:&tbnh=141&tbnw=141&prev=/images%3Fq%3Ddiana%2Bcamera%2Bph otos%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26client %3Dsafari%26sa%3DN%26rls%3Den%26 biw%3D1280%26bih%3D605%26tbs%3Di sch:1&um=1&itbs=1&iact=rc&dur=38 4&ei=m0f0TMrBOY-j4Abf_sjIAQ&oei=dUf0TJXyI4uFhQeb k-zoCw&esq=16&page=1&ndsp=21&ved=1 t:429,r:1,s:0&tx=41&ty=91

    Are you going to take photos of broken records on your floor and upload them to Flickr?

    The link to the image just took me to Google's main page, so I couldn't see the example.

    But in response to the comment above, you could do it using photoshop, but nothing compares to the real thing!
    I'd recommend getting the camera, lomo cameras are great, you never know what you're gonna get when developing. They're really fun to use and play around with. Sometimes parts overexpose, sometimes you get an accidental double exposure or marks where light has gotten in, sometimes you get the real dark edges and deeps colours, sometimes they're just right!

    You can expect similar photos to this though: http://www.lomography.com/homes/skyl...photos/3582179

    There's a load more examples on there to from the same camera if you click next.

    As I've said on every other 'I wantz lomoh kamra plez' thread, spend that £50 on a decent 35mm film camera on eBay and actually learn how to push your photography forwards rather than taking a step backwards with some crappy lomo camera. You're spending £50 on something made entirely out of plastic - the awful build quality is exactly why the photos turn out like they do. It's like paying extra to get pre-ripped jeans. It looks awful and the logic just isn't there, why do it? Get an old Minolta or Nikon F camera from the bay and play with that, you really won't regret it. Whenever I see some rah kid with a lomo camera I pity them for having wasted their money on something they'll get bored with within a few months because of it's incredibly limited design.

    Don't waste money on an expensive camera that is designed to be something a bit crap. Just get a real vintage Russian camera with a plastic lens, you'll get the same effect but you won't be a hipster wandering round with you're brightly coloured camera, you'll be a real photographer exploring the history of photography.

    The Diana is plastic and has crap build quality and takes 120 film which is expensive. The image quality is probably good though due to using very large film.
    I would prefer to get a cheap old 35mm SLR which will be much stronger and versatile, or even a good quality 35mm compact such as Olympus mju or Yashica T4//T5.

    You can pick up old film SLR's for next to nothing these days.
