Yes, I’m taking this one seriously.  With 13 stops of DR, RAW format, and up to 100fps, this looks to be something to keep a look out for. It has a super 35 sensor with sensor cropping to handle S16 lenses. Price about $3200 for body???

4K RAW In-Camera Recording
100fps@1080p(RAW) / 96fps@2K(RAW)
Multiple Codecs: CinemaDNG, CineformRAW, ProRes, H.264,…
sensor crop function
13 stops dynamic range
3D multicam-sync function
Built-in 2.5” SSD Slot
HDMI & SDI video output
Exchangeable lens mount system
Only 1,9 kg body weight

On paper this camera blows away the cameras they filmed Avatar on, which still stands as the biggest movie of all time. So there’s that…

  • 4K RAW In-Camera Recording
  • 100fps@1080p(RAW) / 96fps@2K(RAW)
  • Multiple Codecs: CinemaDNG, CineformRAW, ProRes, H.264,…
  • sensor crop function
  • 13 stops dynamic range
  • 3D multicam-sync function
  • Built-in 2.5” SSD Slot
  • HDMI & SDI video output
  • Exchangeable lens mount system
  • Only 1,9 kg body weight

The Digital Bolex is released, and this will intrigue some for its characteristics.  The RAW global shutter gives a distinctive look, and a lot of leeway for post changes.  I think the saturation was pushed past the breaking point below, but it shows how much color info is captured.

Drawback is that it has less dynamic range than the BMCs, or of course the Alexa and Red Dragons.  This means clipped highlights more of the time.  Mitigating clipped highlights on a real movie set is still needed, important, and often not done.

I’ll need to update my camera introduction guide when more footage comes out of the Bolex.

“The camera retails for $3299 for 256GB hard drive, or $3599 for a 500GB hard drive.”

Also note the built in XLR audio connectors.

Osiris film luts look very useful and easy to apply.  The digital low budget crowd will be very interested.

For 49 bucks you’d save that much in time on the first day.

Here’s another one about reducing color noise.

 

…why I want the Blackmagic Cinema Camera, and I’m not interested in other systems at all.
