The crowd funding campaign for the AXIOM camera ends in just hours and has been a massive success, surpassing the funding target early.
The open source cinema camera is backed by Magic Lantern, Philip Bloom and other leading lights of the DSLR community. It’s the people’s camera, taking control back into our own hands. What’s interesting is that it also unleashes Magic Lantern’s extraordinary ability for the first time outside the closed platform of a Canon DSLR. They now have hardware they can work directly with the manufacturer with, without any need to reverse engineer a DSLR.
This for me is the future of Magic Lantern. To be their own open source camera designer and manufacturer along with AXIOM.
