Retro floppy-disk camera 3min mini mini movie – seashore


The Sea Slater journey and the tides were filmed out and about, on the fly, just for fun, with no tripod and just the little retro Sony Mavica floppy-disk camera. . . and 10’s and 10’s of 3.5 inch floppy-disks.

Some may know that the camera takes a max of 15 seconds of 320-240 px video. Once the button is pressed, that disc is committed. . . no matter if the critters run off or don’t move. A new disc has to be loaded before “take 2”. . . I recall several occasions of “take twenty something”. . . other words were used.

I thought I’d pay a little homage to the mavica, by re-editing this little 3 min mini mini movie, with modern editing software. . . and have come up with this. . . embedded in its native 320-240 res.

A little bit of seashore study, popped together with a simple, yet playful style. . . to be held on Sea Shore Antics FD (floppy-disk 320-240) Archive playlist. . . just for fun. . . and a tad of nostalgia.
