which one should i get?

mini diana is compact and cheaper, but the results are often too grainy and blurry for me. on the other hand, blackbird fly is big and hassling to bring everywhere, but the photo results are great. what do you think?

i have the diana. its so uber cute but i havn't worked out how to take photos that look any good with it yet. also 300 film is SO hard to come by, and developing it is a right pig.

Go for the Diana! I have a big one with flash, it's super duper. The mini is so cute! I have lots of vintage cameras, but the ones that are large in size I never take out with me everyday, having to haul them everywhere. I think you'll get more use out of the Diana, as it's so portable. Also, depending on the film speed and manufacturer, you can get super crisp images with the Diana with practice - the large one's medium format!
