So this new wave of cameras will be just perfect for our purposes. But anyway, I can't wait to have my 12A2C here!

Last night I downloaded a demo version of StreamPix 3 and I have to say i'm very impressed!

This application does just about everything we need. I can't think of anything its missing. (well, within reason...) I do have some feature requests but right now i'm just looking forward to SMX-12A2C support.

This is going to be a great solution for this camera, especially with CineForm codec support.

Jose A. Garcia, when are you expecting the camera?

I'm a little confused about the functionality of this camera out-of-the-box. Some quick questions:

(1) For $2500 we get a camera with a gigabit ethernet port and an API, anything else? What type of video capture software comes with it? (and what platform does it run on?)
(3) Can I shoot live video with this camera and a laptop with the supplied software?
(4) What frame rates do you support? The Sumix website lists only non-standard frame rates.
(5) What is your raw pipeline? I see what looks like lack of LP filtering in the demo videos on the Sumix website (maybe a good thing): point resampling shows an artifact pattern.
(5) What codec do you compress to? What are the disk bandwidth requirements?

Thanks. This looks like a pretty good camera.

Possibility to buy an Angenieux 12-120mm zoom

Hi all,

Marie Guillaume, a member of this forum has offered me an old Angenieux 12-120mm C-Mount zoom with an optical viewfinder. It looks used but in good condition. I just asked her if it had any problem (fungus, lubrication, marks..).

She asked me to make an offer but I don't know how much would be a fair price for both of us.

So what do you think?

It'll be here tomorrow!! DHL just called me to say my Sumix will be here tomorrow morning. I'll still have to wait for the Power Injector, because it doesn't come along with the camera due to a little mistake.

Anyway I'll attach the lens so I can take a few photos of the camera itself. In a few days you'll see the first videos.

Hi all,

It's here. Now I have to wait another day till the PoE Injector arrives, but that means I can post photos and tell you about the size and general external aspects of the camera.

The camera itself is quite small. A little smaller than the Computar zoom and I think the Angenieux lens will be even bigger.

For those of you who, like me, want this camera to be part of a whole setup of mattebox, followfocus and miniPC on a rod support, I have to say it comes with a small standard screw tripod mount that can be easily attached to the cam.

The camera looks and feels rock solid and weights quite a bit for its size. It actually looks more solid than the photo at sumix.com.

Well, there's little more I can say without actually testing it, but that'll have to wait untill tomorrow. I'm attaching a few pics so you can take a look.

Yeah, this thing is put together very well. It will get a little warm after operating for a while, sometimes I worry it will overheat so I don't want to keep it on for too long. But that has never happened, the temperature is stable and i'm sure in safe levels.

I'm really looking forward to some pictures with your improved filter, and lens.

I have been writing some basic software allowing me to experiment with the API and its functions. However, I have decided to not reinvent the wheel. StreamPix 3 has everything I was going to need so its just a mater of waiting.

I had a short film coming up I was going to use this camera on but it looks like that wont work out.

very nice! how does this camera mount on a tripod? and what's the best way to shoot handheld? (presumably with a long and thin ethernet cable)

Well Ali, if you put a whole system together you don't need a large ethernet cable, but a large power cable.

My idea is to take a rod support and mount everything on it. You can see a very simple black round piece in the last two pics. Well, it has a standard screw tripod mount and it can be easily attached to the camera. With the camera, a mattebox, followfocus, touchscreen 7" lcd and a little minipc (even smaller than the one you just linked, Ronald, but a Core2Duo too) you have a fully independent HD cinema camera. The only problem is power, but you can plug it to the wall if you're indoors, to a car if you're in open outdoors or use this

if you're on the street and don't want to use a generator.

Now what's the most simple setup? I guess it's just the camera, lens, a small LCD or viewfinder (so cameraman can know exactly what he's doing) a large ethernet cable and your laptop.

Hi all, Ive being following the sumix for a while now - its hard to keep up on the progress exactly...

Im basically waiting for this cam to work practically before I order, Im no code expert so how long before we can plug this thing in a laptop and capture with software?

No time at all...

The cam actually comes with its own software. There're projects to create software specifically for filmmaking purposes and in a few weeks, we'll have a new StreamPix3 version with support for this camera, but if you ask whether it's possible to plug the cam to a laptop and start shooting at 25fps (up to 60fps) FullHD, you can do that already.
