From Computer Space to Retro Space to Computer Space Meeting'...



30th of December 08' ...

It starts with the original Computer Space flyer from 1971...



As an homage to the video arcade era, and especially to honor the design of the first ever arcade cabinet, Martijn created "Retro Space"...



...and as a huge fan of Computer Space, Marijn and his friend Lara (pictured on the Retro Space flyer) decided to come from Netherlands  to Belgium in order to see, smell & play a real Computer Space  Wink

But before the 'Computer Space experience', let's invite them into the Nuno's Lair *reloaded* version  Grin  arrow

Everybody loves Donkey Kong :



One of the Lara's favorite games is ...Mappy. Hopefully, my Xevious cab is equipped with the Namco Classic Collection Volume 1 board that includes ...Mappy  Cheesy arrow



Martijn is trying the original Star Wars from 1983...



...before trying the 1998 version of the game  arrow





Drink, food, and Space Invaders part II.. welcome to the 'cocktail' playing  Cool  arrow



The *Starblade* experience  Cool



Some pictures taken by Martijn  arrow

'The King, the Kong ...and the Ugly'



Have a look at the *AMAZING* quality of his pictures  Shocked I need the same camera than you, Martijn   Shocked Kiss Kiss Kiss


Click on the picture for the high resolution version ... Impressive !!!


Click on the picture for the high resolution version ... Impressive !!!

OK, back in the living room, where the Computer Space is... before plugging the game, I pray the god of Arcade : "please keep that Computer Alive my Lord..."  Wink

Power on... It's still alive... OK Martijn, have fun  arrow





Yes, it's a little bit noisy  Grin  arrow







Because Lara (the model for the Retro Space flyer) is here, impossible to skip this picture  arrow



I was a great afternoon. I'm very happy to meet you both. I really hope you've enjoyed this meeting too  Smiley

You'll be welcome here anytime  Kiss Kiss Kiss

The official "Retro Space" website : http://www.retrospace.nl  Kiss

~Enjoy~

the pictures are lovely.

Martijn used a Nikon D700 for theses pictures  Kiss Kiss Kiss But too expensive for me  Cry

Do you think a Nikon D90 would be good enough to take similar pictures, by example this one  arrow



Argh... I love that picture Kiss Kiss Kiss

Most important for the imagequality might be the 28mm manual focus Nikkor prime I used. That lens is incredible.

Handheld or tripod? If handheld what was the shutter speed? Difficult to get good low light shots

Good quality for such a high ISO. So at 1/30th of sec I assume handheld.

Yeah, it has auto-iso, so it picks 1/30th for hand-held capability, and then decides 2200 iso is good with that. The other one with Bruno is 3200 iso.

I'm doing all the pictures with a poor Canon Ixus v3... since 8 years from now (99,9% of all the pictures here are done with it) roll eyes

I'm happy with it, it's a very small model, and it's great during road trip for example, but I think it's time for a new one.

A friend on mine has a D90 Nikon. I'll try it... and I hope the low light shots will be good, like the D700 from Blanka  Roll Eyes Tongue
