Orlando, the designer who’s making our custom D16 bags, is in town for Cinegear this weekend, and I got to meet him in person for the first time on Wednesday. And he brought three different products to show us!
Last week I missed a call from our business partner Joe Bornbaum. The voicemail he left was one of the most exciting things I’ve ever heard.
“We got an image with the new firmware, it’s not perfect, but the F*ing thing works!”
I flew to Toronto that night on 3 hours of sleep. On Thursday I was exhausted. I came into the office dragging my backpack full of equipment. I desperately wanted to see a clean image coming off the sensor, but I knew that this was very unlikely.
There are a few hardware components that immediately come to mind when one thinks about what determines image quality of any particular camera. One thinks about the sensor, the lenses, maybe even the analog to digital converters, but you rarely think about the storage device, even though it’s of the most important factors.
