Vivian Maier

19 Feb 2013 8:02PM
Looking forward to the documentary about Vivian Maier - makes me think about the digital age and how its amazing that after 30 odd years someones work can be found and printed from negatives without any real problem. Will this ever be possible in the digital age? Will our images be found lying on a hard drive or memory stick for someone to find in years to come? I doubt it.
Maybe i should dust off my Dads old film cameras, sell my all my digital equipment and shoot film again!

Just a thought......

How many people can read a floppy disk of any size? They were made in 5.25 and 8 inch before the final 3.5 inch size. There are plenty of old data formats like Betamax video or 78 records that most people can't use any more.

In the supermarket last week I saw brand new portable record players that will do 33, 45 and 78.
There are new record players available now at reasonable prices that will also play from a usb slot, and some will record to memory stick or SD.
Steepletone have been doing this for a few years, their range has expanded, and they show no sign of going out of business, so I'm sure there are lots of people (like) me who very much can play 78's.

5.25" disks shouldn't be a problem.
For 8", it really depends if you have something that valuable trapped on the disk that it's worth getting off.
