If you like me, some bitch broke your camera, or you rely heavily on your phone but long for actual nostalgia shots not created by Instagram, or both, then this treat would be right up your street.
The Diana F+ is an analogue medium format camera from the 1960s that produces those delightful colour saturated atmospheric pictures you may have seen being touted around on blogs and Flickr. If my terrible explanation was too terrible to understand, here’s some pictures which will give you an idea of what the Diana does.

TSoS is giving away ONE Limited Edition Gold Diana F+ Lomography Camera (worth £99) to one lucky reader. Even if your festive season goes absolutely tits up, at least the pictures you take can tell a thousand lies. Having a crappy new year drinking Rose at midnight on the street after being kicked out of a party?* No worries, take the Diana F+ out with you, and all you’ll have are magical memories on film after you’ve repressed how your life invariably sucks. Also it has a handy chain strap so you don’t go losing it. Considering I don’t own a camera, I kinda wanna keep this for myself. But I won’t.
AND as an additional treat, Lomography is offering ALL TSoS readers (including the prize winner) a £10 credit to spend in the Lomography store (aptly named Piggy Points) by signing up here.
