Ikonoskop A-Cam DII vs. Blackmagic Cinema Camera

10 posts in this topic

Nope. Sounds wrong. I mean if you want to save space why go RAW in the first place. The Ikonskop claims to be Super 16mm size but actually it's smaller.

Ikonoskop sensor is about the same size as the Thomson Viper camera's sensor. Some pretty good looking films have been shot with it, being slightly larger so it's the same as super 16 would probably not make much of a difference.

Super 16mm      12.52 x 07.41 mm

Ikonoskop          10.6 X 6mm

 

It would make a difference and it isn't right to claim it as being Super 16mm sized.

 

That aside The guy was saying the Ikonoskop was better than a BMC because it had less resolution and was super 16mm sized. Both reasons are really an attempt at trying to jusify his purchase  as being better than a BMC an argument that is completely flawed..

These terms are an approximation, APS-C is often referred to as Super 35 size, and they're not the exact same size either.

 

The projection aperture for Super16mm film is 11.76 by 7.08 mm, so the difference is not that big, and you can definitely use Super 16mm lenses.

Why would you project Super 16mm ? It was developed for blow up to 35mm.

 

I shoot on Super 16mm and have the footage transferred to edit in digital I certainly wouldnt be showing it on a projector.

I would agree with that statement.

 

A shame we cannot get more footage from the Ikonoskop.

 

Seems most people (especially in US) just do not have this cam.

That camera resolves a lot of detail.  Just wish vimeo didn't crush it so badly - 1) highlights, 2) banding, 3) magenta cast.  I hope those are all vimeo issues.

I agree.

 

Hopefully soon more Ikonoskop A-Cam Dll owner/operators will release thier footage so we can answer those questions.

 

Would love to see a narrative feature or serious 10 minute + short film (narrative) and really see what the Ikonoskop can do.

    • FOR SALE: Various accessories: Blackmagic Hyperdeck Shuttle 2, HD Link,...
      By Olivier Vanaschen
      Hello,
      I am selling the following items. Payment by Paypal. Here's my e-mail: olivier@theblacksheep.be
       
      Blackmagic Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 + Tilta 15mm support and V-Lock plate + Dtap cable
      It's HD 10bit Prores 422HQ (or uncompressed 4:2:2) recorder placed inside a dedicated Titla 15mm rods support with a V-Lock plate on the back. Great system, I used it with a FS100/700, C100, D800,... The connector of the SDI output of the Hyperdeck is broken. Everything else works perfectly. On the Tilta plate, only the Dtap is active, the other outputs never worked well (I taped them off to avoid using them). Included is a Dtap to DC cable to power the Hyperdeck from the V-Lock plate (it's the same cable for the BMCC).
      Price: 200 EUR + shipping (33 EUR to most countries)
       
      Blackmagic HDLink
      Little magic box that converts SDI to DVI/HDMI. Accepts 1DLut. Usually used in post-production but I used it as a 1D Lut Box on a camera via a HawkWoods 5V dtap cable. No AC power included (takes DC 5V 2.A, easy to find on Ebay).
      Price: 100 EUR + shipping (13 EUR to most countries)
       
      Petrol PLMD-2 Monitor Bag
      Brand new, unused Monitor Bag from Petrol.
      Price: 90 EUR + shipping (from 17 to 50 EUR)
