    Hi Clint i just want to say that ive seen almost every video of you(mainly the odware and game videos) and i love them, they even have rewatch value(good to know in these times) keep up the good work!!! i hope you are safe and have a good health

    to add to that, im a huge dangerous dave fan and tried to beat it in these "stay at home" times(withouth good luck i die at level 8). i dont see a lot of people reviewing that game while it had a huge backstory and lead to a lot of games(if im correct designed by john romero) i would love it if you made a video about it

    also want to say that i recently started playing duke nukem forever because i saw your video and thought why not??? i love it, its bad but in a good way and i love john st. johns voice!! also love your voice

    like i said stay safe and GET SOME!!!!!

    A camera the size of a ham sandwich.
    I love it.

  7. Ironic that the shot is shifted to the left and the colours are shifted to the right.

  8. Dominic says:

    Pictures from it look like they were taken on a 3DS

  9. 6:17 does anyone else absolutely love the feeling and the noise of a floppy disk clicking when correctly inserted

    There's a reason why I stuck with stock film cameras back in the 90's. Lol.

  11. In the 90s there was 1h film developing service in a lot of places. Even today my local lab takes less than a week to develop a roll of film.

    Looks like a water bottle for the army’s

  13. Fun fact: Apple used the name QuickTake for a feature in The new iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Max

    We had one of these in our Mac Lab in elementary school

    This was my first ever digital camera. I must have genuinely been the first teenager in my town with a Digicam.

    C'mon world, just just get in my computer!

    It would make a great art construction device, since the picture of the grafiti wall is just amazing, full of vibrant colours (even though if wrongly captured), contrasted by the grey surrounding .
    I love it 😀

  21. Shadowmick M says:

    I sold five back in the day people like them.

  22. I am honestly pretty impressed by the photo's. They are not that bad compared to a lot of other digital camera's from around that time xD They are even better.. or well.. sharper.. than some budget camera's from much later.

    "Now you can enjoy your photos the very same day"
    Polaroid: what am I to you then?

  24. Apple actually made something cheap

  25. I was a newspaper photographer when this camera came out. The newspaper's editor handed us the QuickTake and wanted us to stop using our SLR film cameras and use the QuickTake as a cost saving measure. I called it the "hamburger" at the time and wanted to tell him where to shove it. :0)

  26. Most people: The Apple QuickTake is the worst Apple product ever!
    Clint: Hold my beer!

    Apple, why don't you put a card slot on your iPhone?
    We didn't do it in 1994. We ain't do'in it now.
