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.

      Promo reel made using various cameras that all cost under $700 (shots tagged)
      By Guest
      This is a promotional reel I've just made for the small videography business I'm currently setting up (one-man-band doing local community organisations, weddings etc). Everything in it was shot on low-end/cheap cameras, several of which have been discussed and compared extensively on this forum over the last year or two. To boot, other than the Tokina 11-16mm all of the lenses were each bought for under $300.
       
      After a couple of enquiries about the gear I used for this reel, I've decided to add subtitles to show each camera (and lens) each shot was taken with. Just click the 'CC' button in the Vimeo play bar to turn the subtitles on.
       
      I'd welcome feedback on my reel, but this is mainly posted here in the hope it might be of use to others:
       

       
      Sorry the subtitles aren't synched perfectly to each edit (it's not easy with Amara). You'll work it out though I hope ...

      My videography business promotional film: feedback please!
      By Guest
      I'm starting to set myself up a small videography business: just a one-man-band doing local stuff - community group promos, weddings, etc. I'm still working on the website (www.lintelfilms.co.uk) and have just finished the 2nd draft of my promotional film. I'd really appreciate your feedback on the film. I don't mind at all if you are brutal!
