A few weeks back I found myself in quarantine. I had been planning on getting started on the resurrection of one of my Datsun Z cars, so it was a perfect opportunity. This one I picked up around 1992, for Mrs. Racer 1.0, and when we divorced she didn't want it. I drove it for a few years, then parked it in 1998. It has been collecting dust, dirt, spider poop, and red paint overspray from when I painted my Ford 8N tractor.

It is finally starting to shine again.

So for the first time I got a "midrange" phone instead of an entry level... basically free, of course

I chose the Samsung A51 for two reasons: 1/2 inch sensor, and a lens that is not as wide as the main camera in other phones (not a normal lens, but from my tests it's about 28-29mm actual focal length in 35mm terms, others nowadays are like 25 to 27mm).
It has that "quad pixel" Bayer setup that a lot of midrange phones now have, where one pixel has a full Bayer array which can then either be combined for a 12MP picture (the default) or you can get a 48MP picture - but that really works well in very good light.

1/2 inch sensor is quite a bit bigger than our Pentax RZ18 point and shoot so you can actually get some bokeh (without the fake bokeh option):


All in all, I'm pretty pleased. Other than blow up reds pretty badly, this is quite a good little phone camera. I only really intend to use the main camera (it has 5... but the other 4 are basically garbage).

Trying the "fake blur" with the Samsung A51.

Love your Z. You said "one of", how many do you have? A few years ago I helped restore an 8N. It even had the optional metal roof. Fun little tractor.

Six 240Z's.

Six 280Z's.

One 260Z.

Most are parts cars, given to me over the years.
