The Digital Bolex: The 1st Affordable Digital Cinema Camera
With the traditional companies coming out with cameras like the JVC 4k camera, is this really that much of a bargain?
Yes. Yes. YES.
Why is the Bolex Better?
1. It’s the codec (the format which it records in) that kills that camera. The Digital Bolex shoots in RAW which basically means its the digital equivalent of film. It’s the Holy Grail of formats.
2. That JVC (and most cameras in it’s class) have a fixed lens. This camera you can put whatever lens you want on it. Hello shallow depth of field.
3. The sensor in that JVC is SMALL. Very small. The sensor in the Digital Bolex is 16mm which means it’ll have great low light capabilities.
4. Any camera that shoots RAW with interchangeable lenses is going to cost you around $15k to start. This is going to be around $3k.
