I just love this guy. Not only is he SO adorable, but I am such a nerd about technology, making things, and more. It’s fun watching how excited he gets about the things he shares with us.
Many years ago, my dad had purchased a Bell & Howell 8mm movie camera and projector. I bet it’s still in their house somewhere. I played with that camera when I was a kid and filmed a few movies on it.
In the early 80’s, I had all of my parents home movies transferred to a VHS tape. It was cool seeing my parents so young. There were honeymoon shots. Movies of me and my sister as infants and early birthdays. I really should find that video and convert it to digital. I hope my parents still have it. Hmmmmmm…..
Here’s Matt and his camera collection. An interesting tid-bit; I work with a guy that has the same floppy disk camera that Matt demonstrates in the video. The only difference is that he is still using it. I converted 6 or 7 other camera users (it’s required for their job) to new high resolution digital camera’s with EyeFi cards that store the images in folders on a server. They LOVE it, and it’s improved the usage immensely. But, he won’t change. He LOVES that floppy disk camera and I got to where I would joke about stealing it in the night.
