Diana+ Dreamer Camera Puts a Hold on The Digital

Even though I look forward to the megapixel number for digital cameras and cell phone cameras increasing, don't think I'm not a wistful, sometimes very old-fashioned person. I miss the look of film sometimes — its richness and romance that digital, with its sharp edges and modern beauty, lacks. That's why I've been thinking about getting a film camera lately.

Urban Outfitters has a lot of vintagey cameras, but none of them have really tempted me until I saw the Diana+ Dreamer camera. An all-plastic reproduction from a '60s model, the Diana's simplicity ensures beautiful, dreamy images — think Virgin Suicides. Add to that the fact that its mint green color means it can be displayed without being an eyesore and that it comes with a Diana book filled with images and history, and you've got a sale, my friend.
