When the digital Bolex was first announced, the filmmaking community was thrilled. They’d be getting a camera with a sensor that isn’t tough to work with in terms of focus pulling and editing due to its Super 16mm size combined with the RAW shooting abilities. The company stated that they were working on it for a while and had to get over lots of design flaws, but the first images from the camera are now live on their blog.
They used vintage glass for the video stills that they pulled. And you can have a look at them for yourself after the jump.
After reading their blog post, the writer stated that he was doing lots of chart tests but that it was nothing that translated cinematically. While the images of a person are better, I still think that they should have made some sort of short film with it to really demonstrate what can be created with the camera.
The RAW stills are after the jump.
