High quality, public domain image galleries of old systems Evan 06/23/14(Mon)13:54 UTC+1 No.1709779 Report

Hey, Evan Amos here. I'm a photographer who takes good pictures of video game consoles and puts them on Wikipedia and into public domain so anyone can use them. I see my pictures used here a lot, so I thought you guys might want to see the new stuff I've been doing.

I had a successful Kickstarter that let me create expanded galleries, which I'm working on now. You can an example here for the Atari Jaguar:

or here for the Atari Lynx:

More galleries like that are coming, but I also have general stuff on my main page:

Goddamn what an awful controller! It still amazes me that somebody greenlit that.

Apparently a lot of engineers at Atari signed a petition to have the better, six-button controller be the standard, but it was nixed by management. The three button is the leftover controller from the 32-bit Panther.

Glad to see this was a success. It was pretty sad that the photos I had taken with my fucking phone were about the only high-quality (comparatively speaking) public domain photos on the web.

i've never actually used it, it doesn't look that bad. assuming you're not having to type in numbers while using the other parts of the controller it seems like it'd be just fine

Just wanted to say - thank you so much for your work! You wouldn't have a 1024x768 pic of a Genesis model 2, right?

If you are doing internal hardware shots, you may want to expand them a bit so more detail is visible from more corners.

It's a chore, I know, but can be necessary for identifying parts.

Also, some machines have shit loads of internal revisions. The Saturn had ~15 Japanese ones, plus 3-4 USA exclusive ones, and 7 PAL ones.

I have a shit load of internally different Sega machines and one of my goals is to make HQ galleries similar to yours, of the different motherboards... but, I'd need a much better camera for all that and some decent lightning as well.
