    That’s great! Beta was the best. I’m sure you know, professional Beta was used in production until quite recently.

      Yeah, it was good to see. Not to mention the looks he got.

      I didn’t know that to be honest until I did a quick search for some background info. Came as something of a surprise.

    I still treasure my Linn LP12 Sondek record player for music and use a lot of film for photography. I sort of understand the looks the guy got as I think I get some of the same looks especially when I take my Pentax 67II medium format camera for a spin: The sound of the mirror flipping up makes people jump :-)

      That’s funny. They must wonder what’s going on! But yeah, I understand the attachment. Not as though you are losing any quality with film either. Or indeed music. Quite the opposite.

    A few diehards.. the march of technology… I feel the pain that the Japanese tech giants are going through at the moment.
    I remember the same sort of phenomenon viz the digital vs analogue thing a couple of decade or so in the past…then again, I have a mate who does gigs in public with a wind-up gramophone and old 78’s playing dixie and stuff… a seriously retro dude…

      Yes. Sony, Panasonic and Sharp are in huge trouble. They just haven’t moved quick enough. Or have done so in the wrong direction. At the same time though, I do think we’ve reached a point where the retro and the ultra-modern can sit happily together. Best of both worlds really.
