It's a neat little camera with variable settings
The Diana F+ is quirky but you can actually set it up for the shot you want to take. Need to take photos in low light? You can adjust the shutter speed to compensate.

It's just great to have these settings when you want to take a break from point-and-shoots.
You can do multiple exposure shots with it
MX (or multiple exposures) are one of the most exciting things you can do with a film camera. The good news is that the Diana F+ can do that with ease. Doing doubles is a great little party trick that will have you hooked on experimental photography. Try it out for yourself the next time you go out with your Diana F+!
