Digital Bolex have announced that their D16 is available for pre-order from today forth. But be quick about it if you want to (pre)order one! This first run will consist of 500 units and will have a delivery time between 8 and 12 weeks.
Also -as a special introduction- Digital Bolex grant readers of NoFilmSchool.com a reduction of $100 off the regular price using the code ´nfsreader13´. This code will be valid thru December 20th.
The D16 is a retro-styled camera with a 16mm sensor. It'll record in 4:3 2.3K RAW onto its internal 250GB SSD (or 500GB, which is an optional upgrade) in the 12-bit 4:4:4 CinemaDNG raw file format. It'll also record 16:9 1080p, 720p or 480p, all in CinemaDNG from 25fps to 90fps.
In stark contrast to the Blackmagic camera's - the Bolex is equipped with two (proper) microphone inputs: true XLR's. The lens mount is interchangeable from C-mount to EF, PL, Micro Four Thirds and a Turret C-mount.
I'll not get into the specs of the camera any further, all specs can be found on the Digital Bolex website.
