You know me well. 

 

Heres another test shot at 6500 ISO - I’m just playing around here.

Another test shot at 25000 ISO sort of reminds me of Tri-X.

The fixed 28mm lens and sensor are a designed match.  Here’s a little info about the sensor this camera from an ad.

“Featuring a truly unique imaging system, the Q2 Monochrom incorporates a high-resolution 47.3MP full-frame CMOS sensor, which pairs with the Maestro II image processor to deliver a wide dynamic range with notable tonal rendering, as well as enhanced sensitivity to suit working in a variety of lighting conditions. The sensor's design features an updated microlens array and omits an optical low-pass filter in order to achieve greater sharpness, resolution, and clarity. Additionally, differentiating itself from typical sensor designs, the Q2 Monochrom sensor omits a color filter array (CFA), which offers the ability to solely record monochromatic imagery using only luminance values for enhanced clarity, depth, and resolution. By removing the CFA, this camera also achieves a higher sensitivity range of ISO 100-100,000 than the color-enabled Q2 camera, along with reduced noise to suit working in difficult lighting conditions and a broad 13-stop dynamic range.”

Went all out for this one at 100,000 ISO - this room was pretty dark.

 

added:  This one looks much sharper than what displays here - the “Klipsch” badge is actually very clear.

I’d love to be biking in the “Low Country” right now.  Looks like we’re going to stay below zero for the next few days.

I don't miss those days. I'm currently in the PNW and there is snow and/or ice storm in the coming days. But, I've lived in far harsher weather.   Now, I've lived most of my life in Los Angeles and I really prefer the sunshine and warm weather.

Yep, you got it good there.  I really loved the time my wife and I spent there.  We found a great restaurant too.:wink:

 

Here’s our immediate forecast - I’m sure that others will have it worse though.

Please post a photo of the whole bike.  The Nuovo Record looks familiar.

Pinarello??

 

I just picked up this beauty last summer.  1974 (early Carlsbad) Masi Gran Criterium. Pretty much all original and hardly ridden.

Your photo doesn’t load, at least on my iPad.

 

My bike was purchased new in 1974.  It is a Legnano (Italian) with a Reynolds 531 frame and Campagnolo components.  I recently had a friend replace the sew-up tires and rims with 120 psi clinchers.  Sew-ups became too hard to find and not worth the benefit.

 

The photos below show the new clincher rims and tires.  The profile and pressure are similar to sew-ups.  Believe it or not, those are the same tires in both photos.  The starboard side has blackwalls, with orange to port.  If I use it for a getaway in a bank robbery, witnesses will describe orange tires, but I’ll park it with the black showing while sipping coffee at a nearby Starbucks.

Now I see it.  Nice looking bike. Those look like sew-ups; are they?

A few more detailed shots of the Masi.

Yes, the original Clement tubulars.  They’re in great shape - hardly any tread wear.  When I got the bike, I was going to resist the urge to ride it until I could freshen it up but the glue seemed OK enough to go for a short 8-mile ride. I never thought anything could be better than my ‘96 De Rosa Primato or mid-2000’s Serotta Ottrott (CF/Ti frame) but I gotta admit that the ride on this bike is sublime.

Those are interesting tires.  Maybe for track use?  I just had a set of clinchers built up for the Masi to save the wear on the Clements but I haven’t had a chance to ride them yet.
