D is for Diana

A blurry-soft and dreamy-toned Diana image is more an interpretation of reality than a correct representation of it. 
In a way, it’s somehow more accurate to compare the Diana to an oily vintage typewriter 
than to a megapixel machine of today
Who could resist the charms of its plastic body? How could you not absolutely love its lo-fi masterpiece photos? Something this beautiful, this classic, and this crucial to the world of analog photography 
shouldn’t have suffered such an early demise.

I've never heard of this before, but from your description, reminds me of impressionistic paintings. Have a divine week,
