Not sure if this is the right spot for an intro. I'm Gordon, just coming over from Cameraderie. :smiley:
“No other camera looks or works like it,” Kodak ads proclaimed when it launched the Disc camera. Designed to fit in the back pocket of your jeans and about the size of a paperback book, the camera required an entirely new film format, which Kodak also created. Disc film did not prove hugely successful, mainly because the image on the negative is only 10 mm by 8 mm, leading to generally unacceptable grain and poor definition in the final prints from the analog imaging equipment used at the time. The film was intended to be printed with special 6-element lenses from Kodak, but many labs simply printed discs with standard 3-element lenses used for larger negative formats such as 35mm film. The resulting prints often disappointed the consumer. Few labs made the investment required to get the best out of the small negative size. A problem with labs of the time was the manual nature of processing the color negative film. This was essentially a manual process, unlike spool-based films, whose chemical processing could be fully automated. There were several different manufacturers of Disc film. Kodak produced films throughout the complete lifespan of the format, but 3M, Konica and Fuji also produced Disc film. While Kodak film was always eponymous, 3M and Konica made Disc film for many third parties, branded with the retailer's logo. As with most photographic film, for such white-label products the country of manufacture provides the best indication as to the actual manufacturer. The film was officially discontinued by the last manufacturer, Kodak, on December 31, 1999, though the cameras had disappeared from the market long before then. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disc_film
Title: The Fall Guy Genre: Action & Adventure First aired: 1981-11-04 Creator: Glen A. Larson Cast: Lee Majors, Douglas Barr, Heather Thomas, Markie Post Overview: Hollywood stuntman Colt Seavers picks up some extra pocket money by using his rough-and-tumble skills to track and capture bail jumpers.
"Punk" must have meant something totally different from what I remember in the 70's & 80's! 😂
If you'd like a flashback to McDonald's of the 80's & 90's, check this article on DrivePedia. Looking back, it's surprising how many little things have changed but when thinking about it, all of those little things help explain why a trip to McDonald's today feel so sterile versus a trip back then. https://www.drivepedia.com/business/80s-90s-mcdonalds-fb The huge amount of styrofoam containers were indeed bad for the environment but I'll go with the unpopular opinion that the McD's breakfasts tasted better in them versus the plastic containers now used. :P
Just about everybody I know who grew up in the 80's has a bit of sarcasm to them and it's no wonder why, these are the types of movies we grew up watching! 😂✈️
