Re: What is CRAFT?

I wonder how well the "sign up x friends and get $x off the price" marketing strategy is working. That's my favorite part and actually a pretty good marketing tool. Given that the guy's LinkedIn page has marketing, not camera building, as his top skills, it's not a surprise.

Personally, I want to know quite a bit more about it before starting to spam friends...

i knew that Arri will be mentioned, but it's a bit more than $1K, and it is not a new development

Aw, Dylan. He's a great guy. Just needs a little help 'cause his family has been deposed. You're 60,000,000 is coming as soon as they're back in power. Any day now.

Re: What is CRAFT?

Well, we've just about clocked through the first quarter of 2016 and still no CRAFT camera. Anyone holding their breath would require 'colour correction' by now.

I heard a rumor that Blackmagic Design is handling the manufacture. CRAFT should therefore start releasing cameras by sometime in 2020. ;^)

(In case anyone's not sure, I was kidding.)

Re: What is CRAFT?

Take GoPro like guts, put it in a plastic 3d printed box, fake carbon fiber water graphic coat it, put Chinese 15mm rods and a Chinese convoluted cage around it, call it a sub $1000 cine camera and how you are going to change the cine world without any proof or fact sot back it up, and you too can start your own hipster 'revolution".
