What a neat idea.
Camera Rescue, a Finnish organization determined to rescue more than 100K analog, has already saved 46,000 cameras and plans to more than double that number by 2020.
The hipster beards maybe?I am going to show my cynicism a bit and ask, after reading the linked sites... what makes the group a "Camera Rescue" group as opposed to just being a for-profit gear refurbisher?
Yeah, but at the same if your 'rescue' group has a link titled "I would like to research the analog scene" I have to go with Luke's hipster theory.well, in fairness, I could imagine that they invest more time and effort into this endeavour than they make money out of it...
(even a labour of love needs to be financially sustainable...)
I was eyeballing a dedicated digital audio player for playing hi-res files awhile ago, and after buying a new pair of headphones, I find that the files I play on my phone are MORE than good enough for walking the dog. I'm not saying that a dedicated player wouldn't sound better.oh, speaking of rescuing "audio equipment" - if anyone wants to rescue any unused "Sansa Clip +" or "Sansa Clip Zip" mp3 players, let me know...
(and yes, Luke, I realize that these hardly qualify as audiophile - but once I plug them onto my beyerdynamics DT 770PRO's they sound pretty amazing )
I think you'll find that was my theoryYeah, but at the same if your 'rescue' group has a link titled "I would like to research the analog scene" I have to go with Luke's hipster theory.
