Re: The Future of Cars

I had a feeling the Rolls engine in the Princess 4-litre R was originally developed for the military vehicles that Austin made during WW2 although Wiki makes no mention of that.

Re: Vintage Kit

Philips have made some very good stuff over the years, I vaguely remember that turntable. A lot of CD players, especially Marantz, use Philips transports. They along with Sony of course developed...

Re: Vintage Kit

Yes, if I remember correctly my Saab had a setting to update the car clock from the RDS data and it defaulted to "off".

Re: Vintage Kit

Agreed about the 401 at least, I've no experience of the 301. The SP25 was advertised as being of high quality (as it was for single records only, no autochanger) but as you rightly say, it was crap....

Re: Vintage Kit

Does the radio display the station name on FM? Can you get traffic info? If so then yes.

Re: Vintage Kit

Not sure I'd class Garrard as "high quality". I saved up my pocket money and bought an SP25 turntable around 1969 when they were perceived as being good quality; however there was considerable play...

Re: Vintage Kit

I'd forgotten about my old alarm clock radio which I got from a local petrol station with Esso Tiger Tokens, probably in the mid-1970s. It's badged Bush but I doubt very much it was made by them,...

Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

When was that photo taken Nigel?

The famous short film "Snowdrift at Bleath Gill" was made near Stainmore Summit in 1955 when we used to have proper winters! A freight train was trapped in snow...

Re: Why does a Frenchman only have one egg for breakfast?

Reminds me of the first time I went to the States. I was having breakfast when the Brit sitting at the next table was asked how he'd like his egg. He presumably wanted it turned over as he thought...

Re: Vintage Kit

Roberts sell badged versions of other brands, as well as making their own. I had an R283 portable AM/FM radio with an LCD display that went flaky after a year or two and was unusable by the time I...

Re: Geared Steam Locomotives

I found the Shay photos more easily than I expected! Originally taken in 1983 on Agfa CT18 film with my OM-2SP, probably with the Zuiko 35-105 lens.

Me too Nigel. The old Kirkby Stephen East (http://www.kirkbystepheneast.co.uk/) station is being restored and houses the Stainmore Railway Company now. The loss of the 200' high Belah Vaduct...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

Yes, it wasn't brilliant on the E-620 I had before the E-M5. Maybe when E-M1 Mk2s come down a bit in price I'll take the plunge, I always liked the 12-60 - the 12-40 just seems too short, and while...

Re: My New toy, MMF-3

The 12-60 works OK on my E-M5 Mk1 but it does hunt a bit before finally gaining focus. So it's not much use for grab shots but for static subjects it's useable. The 50-200 is best used with manual...

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

You can mask transparencies Harold, when I was a camera club member a lot of people did, usually using tinfoil in the mount. Done properly it works very well.

Re: My latest foray into FF mirrorless - and why I'm sticking with m43

A friend of mine has (or maybe had, it's some time since we were in touch) an Xpan which he enjoyed a lot. Also, you can (or could) get adaptors for the Mamiya 6 and 7 medium format rangefinders...

Re: Resolution and Image Quality

That means at 300ppi 14,400 x 10,800 pixels or about 148MP. A bit much for even an EM1x unless you take a lot of sections and do a bit of pano stitching! The detail is extraordinary, it must have...

Re: Resolution and Image Quality

It's usually reckoned that 300 ppi on a print is about the limit of the human eye's resolving power so if you multiply the size of the painting in inches by 300 that should give you an idea. For...
