This came to mind because I'm cleaning out closets and coming across boxes and boxes of tapes and slides...
Back when the boys started playing, cassettes were a big breakthrough. For years, mailing them around the country was a huge part of the scene. Now you can often download a show right after it's been played, or watch it in real time from thousands of miles away. Things we could only dream of a couple of decades ago are now routine--not just real-time setlists, real-time video for all to see. In the olden days you had to send your film to the lab and wait with bated breath to see if that great shot turned out the way you hoped; now you can not only tell then and there, but you can send it to the world. With special effects.
What are you recording/listening/entrusting images to these days? Do you miss the old-school stuff? Are there devices you can't do without?
preferably Mac-friendly, high res, scratch/dust correction, etc.?
By "affordable" I'm talking less than $500 and preferably less than $300. I've got piles and piles of slides and film, like 4+ decades' worth. Including hundreds of Dead pics, of course.
