Photo Equipment: SONY Video Camera Recorder (Video 8) CCD-TR303E (1993-2003).
With SONY AC Power adaptor and charger AC-V35 (1993-1995)
and Hama Camcharger Combi II – universal battery charger/discharger for 6V NI-Cd video batteries.
Ten years of life until its audio recorder failed. Its charger failed after 2 years working. The second charger worked 8 years.
Its accumulator had about 30 minutes of life. Its 8mm video cassettes were 60-85-120 minutes long. They have been transmitted into VHS video cassettes 180-240-300 minutes long and into mpeg files about 3Gb/hour weight.
Kodak STAR auto focus (made in China) analog photo camera (36 shots/film). 1993-2000.
A very simple camera which we used to call a soap-dish. Every shot was rather expensive that’s why we should think over before taking a picture. Unfortunately I had only 1 or 2 films for every trip that time.
Miscellaneous: Olympus Superzoom 800S (assembled in Philippines parts made in Japan) analog photo camera (36 shots/film). 2000-2004. Another soup-dish camera alittle bit better than the previous one. 3-4 films for every trip that time.
