Floppy films: no more than 1.44 MB of moving image.

That is a thousand twenty four times more pixels than the first digital camera, the Cyclops in 1976.

@qrs before realizing it's just low resolution X-Y bitmap, i thought that's some sick QAM

@ajroach42 @qrs what’s fun is when I break out a Mavica FD88 and try to shoot 1280x960 Fine quality, gotta love that, like, 4-5 photos per floppy

or 15 seconds of 320x240@16p video!

@ajroach42 @qrs IIRC you can get one for it, I don’t have it though

@qrs just do what we used to do with DOS games - a slideshow of 320x200 resolution images at 256 color with MOD soundtrack, or vector animation. :thonking:

@qrs Thanks for sharing these peculiar tech mementos!
