Dig­i­tal 16mm cin­e­ma cam­era

Remem­ber the 16mm film cam­era? Great cam­eras such as the Eclair, Beaulieu, Bolex, Aaton, Ikonoskop. The IKONOSKOP?? I hear you say. No, it’s not a typo, but the lat­est in dig­i­tal won­dery. Yes, a DIGITAL 16mm cin­e­ma cam­era. It’s not a con­cept cam­era, it is real and you can buy it now. Oh, and did I tell you? It has a 16mm size CCD, records RAW in full HD, with a fram­er­ate of 1–30fps, weighs only 1.6kgs and will take your Canon mount lens­es. The mak­ers describe the cam­era as WYSIWYG-HD. Enough said. For the full low-down go here. Now we know that the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion has come a long way, but has dig­i­tal replaced film? Watch this short film shot with the ikonoskop cin­e­ma cam­era direct­ed by Daft Punk’s Thomas Ban­gal­ter for fash­ion label Co and decide for your­self or ask British film­mak­er Taci­ta Dean. http://player.vimeo.com/video/28717821
