Seb Farges (see his work on Vimeo) pointed out this rather interesting looking “Bellami HD-1” on his Facebook page earlier. OK this camera may turn out to be rubbish or it may be great fun!! Who knows – nothing is released beyond the picture. The real Digital Bolex is something I’d love to get my hands on sooner or later. I’ve used the same CCD sensor before in the Ikonoskop and found colour to be completely beautiful and unique, totally different to a CMOS sensor.

Before DSLRs, when was the last time the worlds of cinema and SLRs merged?
Last week I had my eyes opened by a cinematographer friend who told me about a time during the 1970s (the golden age of cinema) when Leica got in on the game and produced a movie camera.
