I am surprised that CRT scopes are still around. No need for 4 K, the scope image as created by the beam is barely SD.
Polaroid camera.....wow....and i thought I had it hard
Since I posted this, I bought a Canon PowerShot that has more flexibility with settings than the cellphone cameras I was using. Should be able to make better screen grabs now once I figure out the right settings. Also seems trying to take photographs of the CRT under fluorescent lighting is a bad idea so I'll 'hood' the display when I try with my Canon camera.
I realize I probably could have used the AX100 for those photos since it is quite capable as a camera, but it is far more expensive than the Digital Camera and I didn't want to risk it for this task. And I wanted a stand alone digital camera anyway.
Anyway, we've moved into a digital era, but there are some areas where digital cannot yet eclipse analog.....such as with audio recordings.
As far as the AX100.....
I'm of the opinion that unless there are major breakthroughs, technology peaks for certain devices,....cameras and camcorders being one of them.
Unless you are a highly trained professional, the end product of a camera from 10 years ago vs one made today is not remarkably different.
More megapixels is not always assurance of 'better' pictures is what I read and what I personally experience.
It seems that technology peaks and what you get going forward is mostly additional bells and whistles.
So the average person would be hard pressed to get 'better' video from a high-end cam corder purchased today than one purchased 5 years ago.
I still find the AX100 to be an amazing piece of technology and can't see the need for anything better. That said, I'm a photography amateur.
Very opinionated so my apologies.
The images in the YouTube video are astonishing.
