  • Be careful when plugging that mini USB cable into the port on your Z6.  Damage that port will lead to an expensive repair.
  • I think that I can infer what you are trying to communicate here. Nobody to be seen... Another setting might have driven the message home?  For example:  An ordinarily busy urban intersection with ...
  • Thanks for the link, Max.  Very interesting and informative.
  • Interesting.  Almost mesmerizing. I wonder why no effort was made to correct the dropouts and other aberrations in the video playback.  I guess the intention was to be authentic, faults and all. Th ...
  • I recall watching a documentary on methods employed in days of yonder to implement short term memory.  Those nickel delay lines probably bore some resemblance to chain armor.  Tiny rings woven ...
  • You have illustrated the difference very well. Also, kudos for your reference to the "bucket brigade."  This was the term used by PHILIPS in their description of the charge coupled device, which ...
  • An incomplete dream... It was an aim to move toward communism when such a thing became possible. It never did in the USSR. The powers that be understood it was probably an unobtainable objective. ...
  • Yes, it all comes down to the equipment that is used. Keep in mind:  You are comparing the image produced by a high-resolution camera to one produced by your comparatively modest camera. All things ...
  • Take the camcorder, place it in a box, and put the box in some inconspicuous place.  A basement will do, even if you live in a place where your basement floods occasionally.  You will be much happier.
  • Replied in Sleep camera
    I'm reporting on the result: Franco is correct regarding the total recording time for high quality 640x480. The camera goes into standby mode at about 27 minutes. I did three takes and the time ...
  • Replied in Sleep camera
    I'm testing your claim now, with my 828. With a 4GB card installed, it indicates 02:56:25 as the maximum available recording time at 640x480 standard resolution. Your time estimate seems to be ...

    I don't have the 707 on hand to test if it can be used with the Memory Stick Pro.  It seems that the 717 supports it, and could be used for the purpose of long duration recording.  I'm surprised ...
  • Replied in Sleep camera
    Don't give up yet!  I have a Sony DSC-F828 that isn't much different from your 707 so far as file storage goes. I use a 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo (Mark 2) card inserted into a Memory Stick 2 adaptor ...
  • Replied in Sleep camera
    I notice that you have a Sony DSC-F707.  Does it still work?  It may be a primitive video instrument, but it can be used with its power supply to record to the limit of the storage card, and ...
  • That's right. That's right.  An entirely new sensor.  Throw everything on the scrap-heap and start again.  New lithograpy, new everything.  Unremarkable?  I guess it is if you look at it in an ...
  • The first four CPS-C cameras (D30, D60, 10D, 20D) tell some sort of story about the development of Canon DSLRs.  If I recall the storyline correctly, the D30 was a digital adaptation to the ...
  • Replied in ISO
    The term ambivalent isn't correctly used here, as it is treated as an object, when it is more about personal satisfaction. Being ambivalent about something (such as exposure) doesn't suggest ...
  • Remarkable detail that you have captured here, Donald. Somewhat spooky. Thanks for posting the video.
  • I have read all of the comments in this thread (so far...). As 57even has pointed out, an image with complete sharpness can have 3D qualities.  It comes down to lighting, and in the case of glamour ...
  • Working professionals don't seem to agree with you. Take, for example, Peter Coulson who considers the A7RIII to be the next best thing to a Hasselblad. I don't see how this is the case. Sony has ...
