Cool Find

I was looking around on a couple of photography sites and found the coolest camera ever!! I want one of these. The pictures taken with this camera are amazing!! Granted it is a film camera but it still is the coolest thing. It's called the Diana F+ Camera.
Here's the description about it from the website:

"Back in the early ‘60s, the Diana camera was a cult legend, famous for its dreamy, radiant, lo-fi images. The Diana F+ is a new twist on the classic – a faithful reproduction with lots of cool new features thrown in, brought to you by Lomography!
Same looks, same quality – but the modified version allows you to take pinhole photos, panoramic images, 35mm shots, and the option to use special Diana F+ lenses. The Diana F+ package includes the plug-it-in-and-fire-away Diana+ Flash (comes with color gel filters for colorsplashing!), and a Diana+ flash adaptor that you can use with any standard hotshoe flash.
• Two shutter speeds - "N" for normal daytime or “B” for unlimited indoor and nighttime exposures.
• Two image sizes available -12 full-frame shots (5.2x5.2cm) or 16 smaller square images - (4.2x4.2cm)
• Diana+ Flash with color gel filters for color-splashing
• Diana+ Flash Adaptor (to use with standard hotshoe flashes)
• Multiple and Partial Exposures
• Removable lens for Pinhole Function
• Shutter Lock and Tripod Thread for solid long exposures and pinhole photography"

I hope to add more pictures from our busy day Layne and I had today. Hopefully I will get that accomplished tomorrow. Now it's off to bed!!
