OTM – NeinGrenze 5000T in Rio – March 11, 2013

So I took my NeinGrenze 5000T point and shoot tilt shift camera to Brazil. This is a fun little camera! I love the tilt shift effect of it. If you are new to tilt shift photography, it makes things llook miniature and toy like. Most images by the way…
The little NeinGrenze camera. It’s a fixed tilt shift lens but that is okay. The shots look amazing! Such fun in Rio de Jerneiro, Brazil! Plus, as an added bonus, it was my first birthday in 41 years in which I was able to wear shorts!

Apple Quicktake 150

Apple Quicktake 150, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

The second digital camera from Apple’s short line of digital imaging products. The Quicktake camera line was killed in 1997 by the second coming of Steve Jobs to Apple. Here we have the 1995 Apple Quicktake 150. It also has a whopping 0.3 megapixel resolution (although, I think the sensor was a little better than the Sony Mavica MVC-FD5 from two years later). I will have to be creative on getting images off of this camera. I may have to restore an old PC in the basement that had the Quicktake software installed…

Mama and Josie at the pool. Shot with the 0.3 megapixel Sony Mavica MVC-FD5. It’s the last shot of the series on the early digital gem from 1998…

Tonight’s Sunset

Tonight’s sunset captured with the 0.3 megapixel Sony Mavica MVC-FD5. I had the resolution on fine but that did not help the image much. This is about the best a digital camera from 1998 can do…

Business Cat Prints

Business Cat Prints, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

This is an image of the entrance into Josie’s room. It was shot with the Sony Mavica MVC-FD5. With the 0.3 megapixel resolution, it does not do that well in low light situations. But, I guess, what do you expect from Sony’s first truly digital camera from 1998. The prints are business cats by Amy Beth Geerling Payne. The print in the upper left is a commission of Pewter who passed in 2008 and the middle is of Smoodge who passed in 2006. The print on the afr bottom right is of Bartholomew Jangles in which we purchased at the Ann Arbor art fairs in 2010 and introduced us to her work. Josie’s room has a lot of cat inspired art in her room. Maybe you will see more through my further work on this blog…

Here is our baby girl Josie shot with the whopping 0.3 megapixel Sony Mavica MVC-FD5. Love the old school resolution? šŸ™‚

Sony Mavica MVC-FD5

Sony Mavica MVC-FD5, originally uploaded by spakulsk.

An early digital camera from Sony. It was Sony’s first digital still camera produced between late 1997 and early 1998. It features a huge resolution of 0.3 megapixels! And records on 3.5 inch floppy disks. It’s this week’s feature camera…
