  • I downloaded the movie - your'e right , it was really good - Ed Harris played a great part . I enjoyed it - thanks for the link .
  • Back then , I was a student with a Saturday job in the hi-fi shop ( plus summer holidays ) . I started out getting paid £3 for a Saturday shift while still at school , by the time I proved that I ...
  • I remember buying my ex+1 a Pentax Zoom 90 , which was a nice camera at the time - she probably still has it , Something similar would probably sell well today
  • The high end camera should not be fully automated , but simply a reissued LX . I had two , which I used professionally for more than two decades ; the one I still have is 40 odd years old . I'd ...
  • I would not wish it to be as basic as the K1000 , but would still welcome a traditional , manual focus film camera . I still have one of my two LX cameras , and I'd like to see an update on the LX ...
  • I'm astounded at some of the prices in that magazine , no doubt shipping ( for european products ) plus several middle men each taking their cut , then import duties and the exchange rates must ...
  • So , you'd be talking about a music centre , with an SP25 - effectively a full system with turntable , cassette deck , tuner and amplifier , plus speakers - not just a turntable on its own - and ...
  • Here's an out of the box idea . Have you considered a Pentax film body ? The MZ-S was the last , and arguably best film body they made ( I can speak to this as I had one for a while ) . I thought ...
  • I still primarily listen to records , of which I have a couple of thousand vinyl albums , I also used to record musical friends a lot , so have a significant number of 7 inch and 10-1/2inch reels ...
  • Some films did - look at Kodachrome , which we were discussing somewhere or other - it really was the reversal film which brought Technicolor right into your own photography , be it slide ...
  • I suppose that was my first thought also , but I do all recognise that there may be some improvements in technology from the past 20 years ( such as AF ) which could be translated back over to a ...
  • Yep , that Tascam dual deck has been around for a while and seems to be one of the last remaining units around . Do note the mention of noise reduction : it is NOT Dolby B , or any other Dolby ...
  • It can also depend on circumstances : Kodak failed to forsee very far into the future around the turn of the century when almost everyone dumped film for digital ...
  • Hmm , I know that when I got my Mercedes R129 , it was reported that each seat , with its titanium frame , cost about the same to make as it cost Volkswagen to make a whole Golf !
  • The difference is that , in audio , turntables and vinyl records never went away ; compact cassettes also had its own market for in car use . Hence , the fad that was CD has peaked and is in ...
  • I think the technology is fully matured , and there are more than enough film cameras around to meet everyone's needs for the foreseeable future . I see no need for new film cameras , but of course ...
  • I just get the negs processed , and then scan with my Epson F-3200 . I must start shooting 35mm slides again .
  • I made that mistake often enough in the past ; although I haven't shot 35mm in a while , I did get into the habit of checking the rewind handle was turning as I would the beginning of the film on ...
  • Actually , just looking at that site , and only at reversal film since I would only be shooting to project . For Super 8 Ektachrome , process paid , is £79.17 TriX , process paid , is £82.50 in 16mm ...
  • Replied in Mount
    It is sometimes a wonder why manufacturers miss the obvious - like why , when Pentax brought out the similar sized , and presumably frame sized Q series , they didn't consider retaining ...
