    The square hood actually makes it a bit harder to grip the aperture ring since the lens is so god damn small.

    I really question how useful it actually is, and I never really use it purely becuase of size, it defeats the purpose of a small collapsible lens!

    ...apart from this back needing CR2 batteries, and it being big... and being for the Diana... I kinda got talked into getting it by the missus, even though we've got 3 mini 8s (mine, the missus' one that doesn't work that i'm probably going to disassemble, and the missus' hello kitty mini 8)

    My mind's now wondering if it can be hacked/adapted to a proper 645 body rather than some lomo plastic fantastic body. Least i got the glass optic for the diana

    Spent time in the FilmNeverDie cafe last night when picking it up. Drooling over the FG20 and Hexar RF that they had.

    Its really a great little fast quiet and inconspicuous camera. Apart from some annoyance I had with the ergonomics, I do miss selling it.

    How can it be fast when you gotta press all those finicky buttons for everything? :p


    Wish that one guy would quit shoving his imacon scans in the drumscanner group, they stick out like a sore thumb in this case.

    As with anything, once you get the hang of it.. smooth as butter.

    In regards to the other, pick your battles :p

    Sydney Camera Market on this Sunday 20th. I think it's film/old gear focused.

    Would anyone know where to get a Minolta CLE cleaned? It's got a bit of mould growing in the viewfinder.
