Open Mike: My Top 10 Favorite Cameras of All Time*

["Open Mike" is the Editorial page of TOP, which is sometimes off-topic but not today.] - In no particular order, but roughly chronologically: Zeiss Ikon Contaflex B. This belonged to my father, who let me use it when I was a kid. It was an SLR with a fixed 50mm ƒ/2.8 Tessar lens, and I believe a leaf shutter. I loved it, especially the shutter sound. I had a job at a Kentucky Fried Chicken stand when I was 14, and left it on the electrical junction box outside when I was unlocking the store o...

The Audi e-tron was built to challenge the Tesla Model X — I drove the all-electric SUVs to see how they stack up

The Audi e-tron is a good electric SUV, but it's not as good as the Tesla Model X. Matthew DeBord/Insider I compared an $89,000 Audi e-tron SUV and a Tesla Model X, now selling for about $100,000.The Model X has been the premier electric SUV in the market since 2015. The e-tron was touted as a challenger.But the e-tron has far less range than the Model X, and depending on trim levels, the e-tron can end up costing more than the Tesla.It's tough to argue against the Model X, even though ...

New Tesla challengers are scoring huge investments, but Nikola, Rivian, and Lucid may arrive too late to gain ground in the electric car market

Tesla got to where it is the hard way, with a modest 2010 IPO that raised around $260 million, followed by a decade of slogging through what CEO Elon Musk has often called "production hell." Maurizio Pesce A batch of electric-vehicle startups — such as Lucid, Rivian, and Fisker — has launched exciting new vehicles and attracted billions in investment. The traditional auto industry is also shifting to EVs and taking stakes in startups: GM acquired an 11% share in Nikola last week. Everyone ...

Insider Transportation: Lucid's newly revealed Air could whoop Tesla's Model S — if the startup can crack the marketing game

Specs that rival anything Tesla can produce won't matter much if Lucid can't crack the marketing game. Lucid The physical distancing that is the hallmark of the age of the novel coronavirus may mean automakers can't throw glitzy parties to mark the debut of new vehicles, but that limitation (and the distinct lack of hors d'oeuvres) didn't dampen our enthusiasm when we finally got to see the new Lucid Air EV on Wednesday evening. That's because nearly a decade after the Model S made ...

#Vanlife: The Empire Strikes Back

Yesterday I drove a new-to-me white 2012 Ford F150 V8 work truck from LA to San Francisco to see my daughter and deliver her bicycle plus other summer beach stuffs that were abandoned in the dead Vanagon. The truck is like a giant living room that never need stop for gas! Electra and I were able to take puppy pee breaks in pleasant places to let her walk, instead of a gas station. I still have 1/3+ of a tank of gas left and the average highway speed was likely north of 75mph. Mil...
