LOL. so you KNOW what Im talking about. dude, months on back roads in India with BetaSP and gear, spend each night dusting and charing.. BUT having lived beyond the arctic circle, I can say factually, there is nothing like a coat full of freshly charged hot BP90's on a cold arctic winter morning.
The change in technology is simply mind-numbing, I did look at my old reel from 1" tape not too long ago, well it was digitized years ago but.. I almost cried, nice stuff, but resolution like it was shot with a webcam. consumer cameras the size of a soda can (literally) today is so incredible much better than a BetaSP was in 1990
Dude, we would have killed for a un-balanced Phantom with GoPro generation 1 back in 1989 :-)
