Cool video of inside the VW factory, in colour! Early 50's, they're making ribbed door Ovals.

Smashing, how lavish back then using colour.:thumbup:

Rattletrap – the Volkswagen Beetle that has covered an incredible mileage equivalent to over 35 times around the planet :omg:
Running nifty since 1950… the King of Volkswagens:beer: Why not make friends with this famous little VW – he's on facebook!

Only lavish in UK, still recovering on its own from the war. My father, who was a professional photographer, used colour a lot in the late 40's and early '50s; black and white for very high speed cine though.

To get back to your VWs, I understand ordinary colour film is equivalent to 20 megapixels on a digital camera so I guess for the very best pictures of your car film is still best.

There's a lot more to quality than megapixels, a sharp digital pic that's 5 megapixels is better than a blurry photo shot on film. Not sure where the 20 megapixels comes from though, I'm sure it would depend on the ASA - having said that, my digital camera is 18 megapixels so not far off.

But as you say... back to VW's :wink:

For your interest 64 ASA, sorry should have said this not said ordinary, colour film is apparently equivalent to 20 megapixels. Info came form recent published reasons as to why Kodak had to file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection in US.

Full marks to your camera! Fortunately or unfortunately, depending how you look at it, dad taught me getting the shot is the most important and use, for everday photography, 100ASA for bw and 64 ASA for colour, keep the shutter speed at 1/100 second and adjust the aperture accordingly and luckily I've always had a steady hand so never had a blurry photo.

Not exactly a stock video, but it's so nicely done. I'd love to be able to do videos like this...

Seeing as how the other thread I posted this in has turned into yet another trapstorm in an old teacup, I'll post it here too, so people might notice it. Excellent coverage of the 1979 Action engine change contest included... aah, happy days.

Thanks! I'd love to give it a try, any suggestions or takers who'd like their car done and who is prepared to talk in front of a camera?
