    Right, a few years ago, started with an Asus Xonar Essence STX and AKG K550s. Last year an Audiolab M-DAC and Shure SRH 1540s. Then this year Focal Elegias followed a couple of months later by a Pathos Converto Mk2.

    Got to stop now, further meaningful upgrade is going to be costly...

    More stuff: the print resin is generally Oxygen sensitive (for the fancier printers, O2 curing inhibition is used along with an O2 permeable membrane to speed print times, though not sure of the el-cheapo Creality does that). Shelf life can be prolonged by dumping it in a glass bottle and using those vacuum wine stoppers to pump the air out.

    You should start on a portable setup in preparation of when you're allowed to leave the house again.

    I'm pondering some wirelessness for my SE846.

    I've never really bothered about music out and about. Radio 2 suffices in the car and, when I'm out with the dog I like to just hear the sounds of the countryside, birds tweeting, tractors, farmer shouting at his cows...

    And then you begin to wonder what he's doing with/to said cows...

    Now I come to think of it, this wasn't always true. Back in the days when the only place I had seen CDs was on Tomorrow's World, I had a pile of tapes I recorded from vinyl for use in the car, TDK SA if I remember correctly. It's been a long time since I was last able to play tapes...

    Hello Bronica ETRS with AE II Finder and 75mm lens!

    I used to sell those back in my camera shop days, lovely bit of kit.

    If you can find a speed grip to go with it, that makes a fantastically well handling combo. especially for portrait orientation shots. :D

    Random ebay link...example only, not recommending this seller ;)

    645 is a great format, 15 shots on 120 or 16 if you're a Hasselblad user!

    I have owned Fuji 645 manual and electronic rangefinder cameras, and A16 on Hasselblad SWC. My last 645 was a gorgeous Pentax 645, which is such an underrated camera with amazing lenses. If you don't mind the lack of interchangeable backs. The ETRS and its younger sibling the ETRSi are great cameras and IMHO better made than the Mamiya system, which did have a lot more lenses on offer. That's leaf shutters for you...

    I ended up through ebay "well that's a good price!"-ing with a speed grip and a motor-winder (what a chonk!) for peanuts, just didn't want to pack them to lug about today!

    The call of "more film! Exposed all at once!" beckons, and I really shouldn't be eyeing up the various 6x9 rangefinders or 4x5 view cameras...

    I could do with an internal one of those... Not a USB drive - I want it for writing retro computer disk images and it won't work with with USB drives!

    What you want is a <a href="https://www.kryoflux.com/">KryoFlux</a>. They're chuffin' amazing. I've one built into a wooden casing with power supply, 5.25" drive, and 3.5" drive. It images pretty much anything into an archival-grade format, and you can write back again. Loverly stuff.

    Might be a lovely bit of kit, but it's also an expensive bit of kit for just writing some disk images to floppy disks so I can play some old games :grin:.

    Don't get me wrong it looks fantastic... just overkill for my needs! :grin:

    Is it me or does the ultraHD logo look superimposed on picture of the drive?
    Are you planning to use custom firmware for full LibreDrive support?

    I think you are right, the logo looks oddly sharp whilst the rest of the picture is little blurred.
