I received an exciting email this morning from the Digital Bolex team, The D16 camera is ready for release and they will start taking fresh pre-orders next week.
This news has been eagerly awaited since completion of the Kickstarter campaign in March 2012. Backers of the project will be excited to know that their orders will be processed as earlier as this week.
Back in June we reported that camera manufacturer Ikonoskop were in financial trouble, which was shortly followed by the company filing for bankruptcy. They have now announced a trio of new investors that will in turn renew and improve Ikonoskop. ...
Before heading for a shooting trip to Croatia for a music video (to be released later this year), I decided to take both the preproduction KineRAW Mini and a 5D Mark III (Magic Lantern firmware for raw recording) with me to do some comparisons. The wonderful and equally talented Nicola von Leffern (a very talented camerawoman in her own right – seriously do check out her videos and showreel by clicking here) agreed to be my camera test victim. Thanks Nicola!!
Last year we saw the first Chinese cinema camera, the Kinefinity KineRAW S35. It recently started shipping and at NAB they presented their new Kineraw MINI: A portable camera that delivers a very brilliant 2K RAW image from a 4K sensor. It costs 3800€ (inc. tax) and it should start shipping very soon. cinema5D took the KineRAW mini for a test shoot and here’s the detailed review:...
At the start of the week, Elle and Joe (founders of the Digital Bolex) offered a sneak peak in the form of 5 seconds of video shot from the Digital Bolex. They have now released a sub 3 minute short shot on the Digital Bolex, with accompanying downloads to the original raw files. ...

Things have been very quiet over in the Digital Bolex camp. In March 2012 the Kickstarter campaign kicked up a lot of fuss (pun not intended), promising 2k raw DNG via a camera in form of a Digital Bolex, with a CCD global shutter.
Since then little has been said, and Black Magic has taken to the stage with release of 4 competing cameras. (which ironically are not much farther ahead of Bolex in terms of public release).
Apart from a specification list and clean cut branding, we’ve only had prototype pictures to lust over. Until yesterday when Joe Rubinstein of Digital Bolex posted the first sample DNG images from the camera.
The images can be seen below, taken with a collection of vintage primes (in descending order) a 15mm Elitar Soligor, 26mm Kern-Paillard Pizar AR, and Canon 50mm 0.95....
After the 4K Blackmagic Camera was announced this year and majorly shocked filmmakers looking for low cost high quality tools, along came the 5D mark III RAW functionality in the form of Magic Lanterns recent firmware hacking achievements and provides a valid affordable RAW alternative. ...
