The Digital Bolex team has taken an entirely new approach to building a camera. They’ve been letting everyone in on the entire development process through posts on their blog and videos. Digital Bolex has been dedicated to creating an affordable camera that can capture amazing images. It seems that very soon, quite possibly even before Christmas, we will be seeing the fruits of their labor as the Digital Bolex D16 is almost ready to ship.
Digital Bolex has been updating at us every turn with this camera and it’s been a very interesting process to watch. They had lots of color calibration to do with the camera and below you can see a photo of the old daylight matrix vs the new daylight matrix. You can really see how for this camera has come.
With the color calibration now complete, the team is getting ready to freeze the firmware on the D16. At the end of September they announced that they anticipated to be shipping the first 100 cameras within about six weeks. Currently, they say they are still on target for that.
We look forward to seeing what everyone goes out and shoots once the Digital Bolex D16 is released. Are you planning on shooting any upcoming projects on the D16?
