Name the Camera!
 
We have heard several requests to give the camera a name rather than just the SI-1920HDVR. Please post your suggestions...

GOLEM bגולם
The Golem is a very popular figure in Jewish folklore and legend. The Golem is created by use of mystical powers that are to be found in the Kabbalistic lore.

I like SICam

Yasser Kassana May 22nd, 2006 06:30 AM

Just 'Silicon' - The Real Thing.

Serge Victorovich May 22nd, 2006 06:49 AM

New idea...
ModCam - Modular Camera
And if you thinking ahead and want to catch attention of Lucas and Cameron just add 3D and get ModCam3D :)

Or from SICam, you can develop the "BICam"

Or just call it Jeff.

ModCam is too generic.


I like the idea of focusing on the value points to help conjure up the name.

BTW....the 3D expert(s) (no name dropping) are salivating over our 42mm IOD (Code name: MicroEve) camera model. It should be the worlds smallest 2/3" D-Cinema 3D camera for 3D use (another stake in the ground for SI). All I can say is it will be compatible with our SI-1920HDVR and Cineform RAW workflow.

Can anyone tell me why the 3-D community would be so excited about our little camera?

CineFlex

Dynarange

FlexCam

DynaCam

Dynamic

Innovation


Ok, I actually like the sound of "Innovation". Who wouldn't want the "Innovation" cam?

All about Eve
 
Hi Ari

In one of your emails to me, you wrote: "I appreciate you taking the time to visit with us and hear about the birth of Eve, our new SI-1920HDVR digital cinema camera."

I understand now that it was just a product codename, but I've subsequently gone to print with a 1500 word article entitled "All about Eve".

So could I suggest… Eve. That's a great name. Original. Feminine. Yet defiant. Prepared to take the odd risk with the old diet. The Eve camera. Eve. Eve camera. Keep saying it. Eve camera. Eve. Doesn't it sound good?

Eve.

All the best

I second the naming of the camera after a female name
back in film school, we used to name the camera's, the newest was named "ingrid" after ingrid bergman...

I like that idea, Steve. And in true 'Eve' form, this camera will take a big bite out of the 'apple' that is the current industry standard for cameras. Hmmmm, many possibilities there.

How about, the "EVE-RE1". A camera for 'everyone'

Eric Gorski May 22nd, 2006 02:03 PM

how about 'revolution'? nintendo won't be needing that name anymore...

All About Eve
 
Steve,

lol!

We have been using the EVE name internally for almost 2-years!

1.) The EVE was created to be defiant with the pre-creation models called Origin and Genesis. The Eve posses human qualities and beauty. It is the first of its kind and from which all future forms will spring.

2.) The Eve was named after my favorite and only daughter; EVE.

The question is are you going to shoot your next film with an EVE?

Ari

Mike Tesh May 22nd, 2006 04:00 PM

Origin and Genesis sound cool. Eve doesn't. A camera shouldn't sound like a females name. It should sound like the name of a transformer robot or something cybertech and cool. Think cyberpunk, think pulse rifle, think T1000.

Nothing against the name Eve in general. My sons name is Gabriel but I wouldn't name a camera that. If I started telling people on location the name of the camera was called "Eve" I would feel stupid. Just like if I used an Apple "Lisa". Another horrible name for a high tech electronic product that failed.
