Two weeks ago we sent out an email to our customers letting everyone know that our production line had been delayed due to third party interference. Today we have good news! Shipping and production on the D16 has resumed, we are shipping cameras again!
This has been an incredibly busy NAB for us, and we’ve made a number of big announcements, so we’ll recap if you weren’t able to make it to the show.
Digital Bolex Monochrome!
The Digital Bolex Monochrome is now available to order for $3999.99 with a 500gb drive. Anyone who wants to upgrade their existing camera order to the Monochrome can contact us directly.
The new PL mount from Hot Rod Cameras is here!
We have finally received our nearly final prototypes of the Kish lenses, and they are beautiful!
The history of black and white is the history of motion pictures, and from Thomas Edison’s early experiments to Sundance Award-winning COMPUTER CHESS filmmakers have used black and white images to create bold visual choices that cannot be reproduced in color.
Since the D16 went on sale back in December, we’ve been asked by educators, filmmakers, and members of our forum to produce a native monochrome camera that can take advantage of the latitude of black and white raw images. After a few months of testing we’re very excited to announce the D16M, boasting a black and white sensor for highest quality monochrome capture without the need to debayer, retaining a higher sensitivity to light and preserving the full dynamic range of the sensor.
