Optical Low Pass Filter, basically ensures that high frequency noise (moire patterning for example) is blurred to reduce aliasing artifacts.

I mean debayered in post. It is my understanding that you are recorded bayered data with this camera.

Interview with Ikonoskop

I recently spoke at length with Daniel at Ikonoskop about the A-cam dII. He was very kind with his time, and answered a lot of questions. It's been posted as a 30-minute audio podcast here: Interview with Ikonoskop on the A-Cam dII “Digital 16mm” Camera at FreshDV
Many of my inquiries were simple clarifications of posted specs, hopefully it clears up any remaining confusion about the camera.

Good job, Matt. You hit all the basics. Thanks for confirming, among other things, that the A-Cam's CCD has a low-pass filter. I'd like to have asked Jonsater about vertical smear on the sensor, but it sounds like they're releasing specifics as their marketing plan unfolds and not before.

I thought your characterization of the Ikonoskop RAW data file as almost needing "development" (like film) was appropos. Also good to hear the audio data is separate from the video.

Those cartridges won't be cheap, though. This will be $11-13k when it's ready for a shoot. And that kind of cost makes me wonder about two things:

1. Ikonskop's file-management software
2. Their unseen company "owners," as Jonsater put it

Great interview.

Footage in November

Ikonoskope says footage will be posted on their site in November.

Who´s ordered one early? Looking forward to some real world impressions.

Good times to be a shooter...

All the best,

M

The clips have been shown at IBC,so nothing really new here.

That's what they call footage? 3 seconds of some guy in a lab and 3 seconds of someone driving down a road at night? I think they need a new marketing department.

If you take the watch footage, which is quicktime animation coded (12 bit that is) and start playing with it colorwise, you'll see why it's online.

It has to be separated, there is no "video", only a sequence of pictures/images(frames) organized by folders...

It will come with a 80GB memory card and a 9mm lens, so it will be ready for shooting out of the box, for about $10k.

There won't be one, they already said that, they wil just provide the raw files and count on software developers like Adobe to deal with them the best way possible.


But i find it kinda difficult to spend 10k based on these 3 videos (all of them displaying some issues -> aliasing in the clock, for instance.) and hoping for a delivery 2 months from now.

I really like the Ikonoskop camera.

The big problem that I've got right now is that they haven't announced how much the cartridges are going to cost. Being proprietary and stuffed full of expensive Flash memory means that they're going to be expensive. I'd not order one up until I know how much they're going to be.

This SSD HD is pretty close to what they are trying to achieve:

Just read their user forum - Looks like the guys haven't update anyone in three months.
I'd be really nervous if I put money down on this camera.

The first prototype is shipping

According to Ikonoskop they shipped their first camera to the no1 pre order holder somewhere in Down Under.
