Our Most Popular Film of 2017 was LomoChrome Purple!

Ten years ago we rekindled our love for the classic 1960s Diana camera. We souped our darling Diana with tons more creative features, introduced a range of weird and wonderful lenses and accessories, and freshened up her look in so many ways with a whole hoard of clones, and mini mates. A true analogue icon, Diana is fo’ sho Lomography’s leading lady. To honour the esteemed occasion we even introduced a funk matte red and pastel blue design, complete with a rockin’ retro gold lens.
