This is the best bit photography kit i've bought in ages!
I unfortunitly cant review the sellers as i went and got this from Lomography london myself and paid a little more but even at the price i paid its well worth it.
the kit is massive!
i'm gonna give you a FULL list of whats included in the box as i tryied to find out
and wasnt told, couldnt find out. ( i even e-mailed the seller #
firstly no film is included but i got lomography colour slide/x-pro 35mm flim 36 exp 200iso x3pack
no batterys are included eirther.# the flash takes one AA #

WHAT YOU GET:
x1 diana F+ camera with 120 format back fitted on it
x1 camera strap # plastic strap fitted to the camera #
x1 shutter lock # hanging from the camera *this is used to keep the shutter open so you dont have to hold it open when doing long exp #
x1 diana F+ flash # takes 1 AA battery #
x1 hot shoe adapter
x1 cable release cable
x1 cable collar
x1 viewfinder adapter
x1 universal viewfinder
x1 fisheye viewfinder
x1 set of flash gels # a small pack of coloured strips that fit into the flash *very easy to lose so put them somewhere safe I have got a small box for mine but you could use a empty plastic film canister please note I WAS TOLD you CAN NOT REBUY THESE ALONE!!! and you may have to buy a new flash!! #
x1 35mm diana F+ back
x2 120 frame masks # 5.2x5.2cm, 4.2x4.2cm these are in the packaging #
x1 take up spool # in the 110 format back #
x2 film plates # one in the packaging and one in the diana f its self #
x4 35mm back format frames #24x36mm, 33x34mm, 33x48mm, 24x48mm #
x6 lens caps # each one has on it what lens its for #
x5 drawsring bags # in packaging #
x1 diana F+ book # this is a hardback book about the camera and NOT a manual it gives you ideas and shows you images of the type of images you can produce #
you get a poster manual on the following lenses:
x1 diana F+ 38mm super-wide lens
x1 diana F+ 55mm wide-angle lens
x1 diana F+ 110mm telephoto lens
x1 diana F+ 20mm fisheye lens
x1 diana F+ close-up lens
x1 diana F+ splitzer
x1 diana F+ manual
x1 diana F+ 35mm back manual

make sure you look carefully in the packing as some of the list is hiden in the packaging # eg. there is a small sliding box in the bottom of the box that holds all the manuals and all the accessoires and housed in a long sliding box also in the bottom of the box, both boxes have writen on them at the end what they have in them they also have a small lomography logo on the box #

ok so that a list of what you get now a bit on the camera
this is defo for old school photographers and if you want pin sharp images this is not for you
as this type of camera is a soft focus, light leaking pin hole type camera that produces arty images,mutiple exposers ect.the camera and lenses are all plastic. # they can mark easy so use the lens caps and the bags #

the camera its self is so simple to use,
you just set the lens to what aperture you want # all written on the lens its self so fool proff )and the iso is all controled by the film you use. the only other thing you need to set is the light your shooting in Eg, sunny, cloudy, part cloudy or pin hole.
the shutter speed is easy theres two choices n or b ( n day time, sunny ect and b long shutter speed that you control how long the shutter remains open for, this is also the setting for the pin hole camera # but will take a bit of getting used to if you havent used a old syle slr or tlr # twin lens reflex # more as the view finder is more genral so if you get your subject in the middle of the view finder then your be good to go however if like me you have used a lubtel 166 tlr or a slr then you will have lots of fun producing more arty types of images. The lenses are easy use remove, the bottom lens cap # you get one on each lens again with what lens its for ( apart from the lens thats got diana f on the lens#, so the lens has a top and bottom cover# to remove just set the lens shaft to pinhole # p # your see some dots on the lens just gently twist the lens anti clock wise so the dot on the lens is by the dot at the top of the lens shaft rather then the bottom then when you put a lens on just line up the top dot with the top dot on the lens shaft then turn clock wise till the dot is alined with the bottom dot done!

the backs change easyly with a little messing about but follow the manuals and be gentel and your have no prob, it took me about 8 mins to change the back 1st time, as i wasnt reading the manual!!! now i can do it in a couple, really easy but as i have said be gental DONT force it as everythings plastic and will break!if you use to much force! the flash just fits on the camera if your useing the flash on the diana+ you dont need the hotshoe!# the hotshoe is just for use with other cameras/ other lomograpy cameras with hotshoe flashes# just pop in a aa battery in the bottom of the flash # buy some of them super strong camera ones as they drain really easy like most flashes drain power, i got kodak ones and they worked ok # the
flash gels just slip into a gap in the plastic dome infront of the flash bulb # theres a hole eirther side they do slide in there but you might find it tricky at first but it does work better if you pass it though bot sides )there is a on off switch on the flash turn it on and on the back of the flash a white cirle glows red when ready to shoot. turn off the flash when you dont need it as the drain on power is high. the flash gels are used to give a burst of colour for cool effects but you dont have to use them.

ONCE AGIAN DONT LOSE THE FLASH GELS I CANT FIND ANYWHERE THAT SELLS THEM on there own! you lose them you may have to rebuy the flash but as far as i have been told BY LOMOGRAPHY you can not get them!# got a small box for mine, but you could use an empty plastic film canister # however... lomography are a really good company and there customer service is brill if you contact them with a problem if they can they help with the problem they do # i had a problem with one of my lenes they replaced my lens no questions asked... but i did buy my kit direct from them so my advice is to store your flash gels somewhere safe.#

thats about it, just that if you love film photography this is a great buy and you get massive amounts for your money lomography have really given you all you need to start you off with this type of photograpy. and the little extras are nice too.
its also a nice kit for someone who wants to start using analogue photography

I,ve ordered the diana f mini from this seller so i will do a review on that and let you know how I found the seller once that comes.

I bought this for my partner for his birthday on the 12th of Oct, when we tried to assemble the camera & put on the 35mm back, the camera would not work. Very disappointing when I had been looking forward to giving it to him.
The Warehouse have provided first class customer service & sent me another 35mm back to try on the body of the camera, unfortunately that did not work so they then sent me a whole new camera body.
This identified the problem, the camera bodies supplied with the deluxe kit has a design issue where the winder slot is the wrong shape to fit the 35mm back, it appears from looking at reviews that Lomography are aware of this issue but do not appear to have informed their suppliers!
I give the kit one star just for the fact that the camera does not work straight out of the box, now it's working I would give it five stars as great value for money & a fun camera to own...I give the warehouse five stars for their excellent customer service.
