True black and white is more faithful and dynamic to the subject than desaturated color photography, rendering more natural and subtle shading and color luminosity. While most digital cameras have a black and white mode, or can be desaturated in post, cameras without a native monochrome sensor cannot take full advantage of the benefits of shooting black and white when filtered through a debarring system and, for most non RAW cameras, heavy compression and de-noising which can ruin the fidelity of your black and white image.

The D16M combines legendary Bolex quality with the best in digital technology to bring you unrivaled image quality for its class. The D16 captures and preserves image detail with stunning accuracy that gives your footage an organic look, and the camera body is designed to fit comfortably in your hands–emulating the feel of a traditional 16mm film camera, while still offering all of the shooting positions and mounting options of a professional digital cinema camera.

The features of this camera include a Super 16mm sized CCD sensor with a global shutter and 12 stops of dynamic range. The D16 records in 12-bit CinemaDNG raw format to give you fully uncompressed footage with no artifacts. 24-bit 96 kHz sound delivers studio quality audio without need for external recording devices. The camera comes with an internal Enterprise Class SSD that acts both as a buffer and a backup for your footage, as well as a 4 hour battery. Dual CF card slots and USB 3.0 ensures your ability to download footage safely and quickly. Our interchangeable lens mount gives you the option of using traditional bolex and C-mount lenses, or the newer lenses you already own and love. And the included LightPost software means you will have the very fastest path from your raw footage to your online editor.

Whether you are an independent filmmaker or just learning cinematography, the Digital Bolex D16 offers you the beautiful color and rich detail we all expect from a true cinema camera, at a price anyone can afford. Join the raw revolution.
