Grid Compass (1982)

The Grid Compass (written GRiD by its manufacturer GRiD Systems Corporation) was one of the first laptop computers when the initial model was introduced in April 1982 (the model 1101[a]). The computer was designed by British industrial designer Bill Moggridge in 1979, and first sold three years later.

The design used a clamshell case (where the screen folds flat to the rest of the computer when closed), which was made from a magnesium alloy. The computer featured an Intel 8086 processor, a 320 × 240-pixel electroluminescent display, 340-kilobyte magnetic bubble memory, and a 1,200 bit/s modem.

The Compass ran its own operating system, GRiD-OS. Its specialized software and high price (US$8–10,000) meant that it was limited to specialized applications. The main buyer was the U.S. government. NASA used it on the Space Shuttle during the early 1980s, as it was both powerful and lightweight. The military Special Forces also purchased the machine, as it could be used by paratroopers in combat.

My Friend Jeremy -Memories 200 Film

Among my usual hiking friends I’m usually the one sporting a camera besides the camera on the phone. However it was a very pleasant experience hiking with my friend Jeremy for he brings his digital SLR camera which i might add is an expensive piece of equipment to bring out into nature I feel we do subconsciously learn from each other’s styles of photography. Honestly as there are many things I can say about Jeremy’s photography I do enjoy the time he takes with each of his shots, almost like he is using a film camera. You can take multiple shots with digital but he is diligent with his work.

Interesting Accident -Memories 200 Film

So I accidentally reeled my film to hard and it snapped from the cartridge cylinder but I was not certain. So I attempted to cover my camera with my jacket and tried to peek inside my camera if the film rolled in or not. To my dismay I accidentally let some light on the film. However after it got developed the shot came out like this which was a pleasant surprise. It kind of gives the spiritual feeling from within the Chapel.

200. Egy emlék...

A sok közös pillanat, miről eszedbe jut, egy illat, mely hozzá köt, egy emlék, hisz veled volt még nemrég. A közös percek, csodaszép tervek, egy karnyújtásnyira volt minden. S most üres vagy te is itt benn’
S ha utatok nem egyesül, árván maradsz, s egyedül,
S ő sem lesz számodra egyéb, mintsem egy csodaszép emlék.

First Shots in Sedona -Memories 200 Film

It was my first time in Sedona, actually my first time visiting the state of Arizona. The sun was waning down but I was able to quickly grab a couple of shots with my camera before the sun fully set. You can tell how I was quickly trying to see where to get a good shot at the same time the sun was setting pretty quickly. I combined two of my shots into one, it may have been just 10 minutes apart each shot.
