Anyone have a XF551 and might take some images?

Recommended Posts

My recent article on the 410 seems to have attracted some attention so I expect it will be front-page on the Wiki shortly. This inspired me to flesh out the coverage with articles on the 810, 1050 and XF551.

 

The wiki commons has reasonable good images of the first two, but none for the 551. If anyone out there has one, would you consider donating a few images to the commons?

 

While I'm here, check out this image of a 810:

Anyone have any clue what mod was applied? That switch is mighty interesting...

Most likely a write protect switch

Thanks video... my bad, I should have been more specific. I'd like a "angle shot" sort of like this one of the 1050:

or this one of the 1050:

Don't worry about the background, the guys on the commons will do all the touchup needed.

I made a small edit on the replacement section, changing the word "will" to "with".  The sentence about design language now reads as intended.  This is what a Document Control guy does on his day off.

We had XCA12 and CA12 as successors of XC12.

xrbrevin, any chance you might consider making individual images and uploading them to the wiki commons?

 

There's generally not nearly enough Atari imagery, and things like this are precisely what it most needs.

Oh gees, I was just poking about on the web page someone posted and noted this:
