That Nineties Show

I was setting up a photo shoot for a magazine article yesterday and snapped some phone pics to test the layout...

Thanks to a reader for hooking me up with that very Nineties box of Black Talon, complete with the period-correct twelve buck price tag. (Of course, sixty cents a pop was pretty premium stuff back in 1992 or so.)

The 3913LS was released in 1990, a couple years after that Nikon F4 and 35-70mm f/2.8D. The Motorola MicroTAC is a later model, probably mid '90s.

The Nikon and the Smith are still useful tools, but the phone is something I picked up off the 'Bay for ten bucks to use purely for a photo prop.
