Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Film

Film:
"I finished a roll, but after that, it had a lot of problems advancing the film for my second, third and every roll after."
_
"I could not advance or rewind the film so I ruined an entire roll of film getting it out and trying to figure out why it was stuck."
_
"I first bought it without flash and really none of my pics even with 400 ISO films weren't good."
_
"The 24mm square negatives are spaced 11mm apart so they take up the same amount of film as a regular 35mm frame."
_
"The compromise design wastes a lot of film in square mode, but it is the only workable solution."
_
"This is the first film camera that i fell in love with."
_
"Because of this camera, I have developed (no pun intended) a love for film and have considered buying more film cameras."
_
"Alas, it shredded some perfectly good fuji film."
_
"Unlike the Diana F+ which takes 120 film, the mini accepts 35mm which is easily accessible however the issue of it eating your film sprockets up on one side is true."

Image

Image:
"I am not able to review images in 24x17 format (2 smaller frames on 1 print) because I have not yet used this feature."
_
"This resulted in lots of overlapping images and dead space."
_
"I first bought it without flash and really none of my pics even with 400 ISO films weren't good."
_
"The image up with the camera is misleading and I am not even happy with the photos quality, too much light is able to be seen through the camera, ruining the exposure."
_
"The funky square formats and the half frames will confuse the developers and the photos will be cut in all the wrong places and if you purposely overlapped images they might be split."
_
"Lomography also has many different lens attachments available for separate purchase to increase the amount of creative options you have when taking a photo including fisheye, wide-angle and close-up lenses."
_
"You're going to be lucky to get two or three perfect images from each roll, then maybe a handful of acceptable ones, and then more than half of truly awful shots."
_
"This would have been fine had the image quality been decent but the magic of my first Diana just wasn't present on this one."
_
"I love the light leaks, unexpected colors, image overlays."
_
"I recommend purchasing not only this camera, with its convenient size, bank-saving features, and applicable hotshoe, but any lomographic camera (Sprocket Rocket, Colorsplash).The anticipation and excitement of WAITING - instant gratification of digital cameras has abandoned this incredible feeling - and the satisfaction of seeing an incredibly unexpected or clear photo from a roll of film gives you appreciation towards this art form."

Size:
"HINT: Make sure that the very edge of your film is right by the tiny yellow arrow (I almost missed this, it's a small yellow sticker on inside body) then simply close the door making sure it's locked and wind to shoot."
