Robin Good: There’s a new camera in development called the Digital Bolex. It is a high-quality digital camcorder capable of 2K resolution, but made so that independent videomakers and amateurs as well culd soon afford to buy one.
"The Digital Bolex is a “digital cinema camera” or a camera that shoots RAW images (sometimes known as Digital Negatives) instead of compressed video.
Unlike the digital cinema cameras used on big budget films, the Bolex is designed with consumers as well as pros in mind, and will be inexpensive, compact, and easy for anyone to use, just like the film cameras many of us remember using as kids.
The camera captures 2K RAW video using a 16MM equivalent sensor. It records in DNG, TIFF, or JPEG sequences and has XLR inputs for audio."
In essence: The Digital Bolex, is a 2K RAW Digital Cinema camera that will sell for around $3K.
