I really enjoyed your QuickTake photos. I have a QuickTake 100 on the way; it should arrive any day! I may have some questions for you when I get it. I just got a WallStreet PowerBook yesterday for use with the QT100. I haven't yet had a chance to play with the WallStreet at all because I camped out overnight for the iPhone last night and now I'm really too tired to focus my brain on much. I downloaded the software for the QT100 from macdrivermuseum.net since the camera does not come with any disks. I'm pretty sure it's the right stuff; I'll find out in a few days.
Your photos are really nice. It's a really pretty soft look that the camera makes. You've got some beautiful areas around you to photograph. I love the California houses and gardens. They look so timeless.
I also have a Newton 2100 on the way. I have an eMate but it doesn't do a whole lot since I have no way to connect it to the internet to get more software. It came from a school so there is virtually nothing installed on it. I will have the stuff to connect to the internet, plus a bunch of games and other programs, when I get the 2100, so then it should be a lot more fun. I have been practicing the handwriting recognition a lot, with not a whole lot of luck but it's fun anyways. I took the eMate to work the other day and everyone was really impressed with it.
Glad you joined the RetroMacCast!
Thank you so much for the help with the QuickTake. I can't wait to try that suggestion. I am out on Folly Island in South Carolina until Wednesday and didn't bring QuickTake or WallStreet. My friend doesn't even have Internet at all. All I have is my iPhone and there's no 3G so I'm stuck with Edge which is so weak here it can take over five minutes to load a page sometimes. I will try out the 150 software next week and I'll let you know how it works.
The QuickTake 100 pictures finally work on my WallStreet!!! I went back and installed the PhotoFlash software because QuickTime just wasn't displaying them big enough. I really like the PhotoFlash. I cropped, resized and enhanced very easily with it. Now I have to take pictures of something besides my husband making coffee and the dogs. I will take the QT to the beach with me tomorrow and take my 8 photos there.
Here are my dogs:http://api.ning.com/files/-myE1spvqVg35doauxh7sgklVQT48uCVeBr3p-KV4eDVXKUBL2izV3tS*eyE5YMG7H32gRMyXEydxe7jaTfhE62J11oKPpbi/Image88408.jpg?width=425&height=600http://api.ning.com/files/-myE1spvqVgvfpU3ijd9dG3IyV7Zzu*1f0L6wclFIl50C61YR8sw4U8lK5SN-4QiBqMib1MHGb8v6vc8k0lSDSGgc6BExSkP/Image58408.jpg?width=640&height=480
I get all of my desktop art from deviantart.com. I spend hours scrolling through photos on there looking for art. I love the Minimalist style. My favorite desktop art has either white or blue backgrounds.
I have since relocated the Clamshells to a different location near my Blue & Whites. Now my Newtons are on that shelf. I have two Indigos, two Blueberries and one Tangerine Clamshell. One of the Indigos has a trackpad that won't click and the second memory slot won't work, plus it's really faded. The others all work!
I made a blog on My Page with a few more QuickTake photos. I got a QT150 yesterday. It was $14.99 with free shipping on eBay. It came with the original manuals and floppies, plus the leather case, but no cables or adapter ( I just use the ones I have from the 100 ). It holds 16 photos! Now I need to find a 200.
I was surprised, but the QuickTake 150 has options for only 16 or 32 photos. Perhaps the QT150's 32 photos are "mid resolution", as opposed to the low resolution 32 photos on the QT100. I'll have to take a few photos at the 32 photo setting on each and compare the file sizes.
I have not heard of anyone trying that but here is a link to an adapter that might help you with that. http://ambery.com/rgbcgatovgac.html. Let me know if you succeed in your quest. The IIGS is such a fun machine to play around with.
