Hi Joe,

I am the author of the free DANCINEC.EXE (tm) de-Bayer program a full solution for cinema quality de-Bayer of DNG and RAW sensor frames for feature film production etc.

Do you have any sample DNG from your camera, I may be able to add presets to my camera support menu at some point, but I would need daylight 5500K and Tungsten 3200K sample DNG to calibrate the saturation and white balance myself with as that works best as my program is under fill manual control of the color balance so there are no AGC effects like some automatic balance software might introduce.

If you have some DNG samples from your tests you can make links to, like Acam dII (tm) did, it would help insure stable software support and compatibility testing of your DNG tags in your file headers.

Thanks for any information on this interoperability issue with de-Bayer software and workflow.

Dan

Hi Guys,

This is Joe Rubinstein one of the partners in the Digital Bolex Project.

You are right we did an initial sensor test to make sure that the Kodak chip was the right choice. For this sensor test we modified a GX to have our sensor and processing unit. We loved the images from the sensor so much that we decided to make a short film using it while waiting for the next prototype to come. The current Prototype looks like this...

And the philosophy behind this project is to use as much off the shelf componants as possible to ensure reliability and make the camera affordable. We aren't trying to re-invent the wheel here. 2K tech is not new or really that cutting edge. The thing that is new is we are willing to give people what they want. A simple camera at a very reasonable price. DCP worthy footage in anyone's hand for around the same price as a DSLR.

Many of you have been very supportive and we greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,  Joe

The 'shoe box' version still has the typical colored gig-e cable hanging out the back ! ( still Allied cam in the box, i'll bet )

I think so, and maybe more.
Maybe they are planning to use the same Kodak sensor, and elements from the internal design from the Prosilica. If its true, they dont have to make a camera from scratch, and that summer release date might be right.
Its not a bad thing, fine tune and re-design an already existing cam for different needs, but it would be much better and straight to admit and come out with it if thats the scenario.

that's what they've said all along.  Merely digitizing a proven well known design, and the CCD censor is a proprietry one from Kodak

it needs a shoulder extension, like a folding butt on a machine pistol you can hold it in your shoulder and fold forward when finished, or remove.  Better than all that aftermarket nonsense with DSLR
