52 Cameras: Camera 92 part 2 — Apple QuickTake 200

Right at three years ago, I used the camera’s video out and captured a couple of images without a memory card.

EXIF shows a shutter speed of '2'.  Manual says the shutter goes to 1/4 second so I don't know what that means.

I’ve had an Apple Quicktake 200 for a while but I never had media. It takes 5V Smartmedia. I scored another camera and this one had two memory cards with it. The camera isn’t working but it had some test shots on the cards.

Messy desk.  I can relate.

It looks like someone was just testing the camera, cards, or both.

I took the next two. My first camera does work. Behold the 1997 glory of 24-bit 640 X 480!

People are asking, and getting, $50-75 USD for a 2MB card. 4MB cards fetch around $100. Old Boss and Roland synthesizers need them so demand is still high.

Like finding Bigfoot to score these babies.  Notch on the left = 5V.

I have a USB reader that can theoretically work with 5V Smartmedia. I haven’t found working drivers yet. I used a Fujifilm Floppy disk adapter FD-A1S to transfer these. I’ll do a proper write up when the camera is featured on 52 Cameras.

52 Cameras: Camera 62 part 2 –Apple iPhone 4S

I usually have a camera with me but not always. I probably wouldn’t have walked back to the car to get a camera for the transformer warning label. I didn’t have to — I had my phone. I have a huge collection of fails and random, funny stuff because of my phone.

At the burlesque show, photography wasn’t allowed (always respect no-photography rules unless it’s some politician doing a perp-walk). At the end they said, “What the heck”, and all of the performers posed for the audience. I didn’t take a camera into the show but waddayaknow, I had my phone.

The Photojojo lenses are fun but not as handy as the phone. I have started keeping them in the glove compartment.

Apple has officially lost their $#@!

I was showing a coworker how to bring up his iTunes purchase history (he got an email about buying a book he didn’t buy). Looking at my history, everything is correct. When I click on “Music” and then “Purchased” there’s a brand new U2 album in my work account.

I freak a little and email iTunes support.

When I log out of the iTunes account, the album rotator display just happens to go past the new U2 album.

I go back in to bring up the case number, follow up, and rip them for f__king with my account without asking.

I pasted the stuff back in, added a PS rant about the error that cleared the form data, changed the subject to match the first email, and “Continue” worked.

Not being Microsoft isn’t good enough any more.
