Powerbook And Quicktake

    Newer Older

    The complete digital package circa 1995/96. The computer is my venerable Apple Powerbook 1400c/166 with OS 7.6.1. The camera, an original Apple Quicktake 150, 640x480, 16 image fixed RAM card, 9 pin serial connection. Works like it did when it all first came out of the box!

      I'm working on a multimedia project about the history of amateur photography and I'm looking for people willing to comment on their relationships with old cameras. One of these cameras is the Apple Quicktake.

      The project, called "Snapshot. Engineering simplicity in camera-use"
      started as an adaptation of my 2006 master's thesis on the history of
      Amateur Photography in France since 1965.

      Basically, it'll be structured around a handful of landmark cameras:
      Instamatic, pocket Instamatic, Polaroid, Kodak Disc, APS, Quicktake.

      For each of these, I will describe the camera, its sociological
      importance,etc.. And tell a little story about it.

      Would you be interested in taking part in this project through a little phone Interview?

      I'm on an very tight deadline since the draft is due next thursday (dec 11th).
