Amidst the absolute craziness of NAB yesterday, especially all of the major camera announcements, one announcement seemed to slip past the mass havoc created by Blackmagic and AJA. I’m talking of course about the fact that our friends over at Digital Bolex have just released a brand new black and white variation on their popular D16 […]

Vimeo has long been a very popular place for creatives to share and upload videos, but in recent months the service and player have begun to show their age, with some very necessary features still missing. The team has been hard at work to update behind the scenes, so if you’ve completely given up on […]

I shared my initial thoughts on the camera last week in Part 1, and since then I’ve been able to spend a little more time with the camera. The firmware I had when first shooting with it was slightly more beta than the firmware the camera currently has, but even in that time many more […]

It’s happening! It’s finally happening! The Digital Bolex team, after their years-long journey from conception to finalized product, has at last released their D16 digital cinema camera into the world. We’ve already seen the first major review from our very own Joe Marine. However, Joe (Rubinstein) and Elle have been making their way around the […]

We heard last week that the Digital Bolex D16 was finally going to start shipping after a lengthy development period that saw the camera transform into a much more fully-featured tool (many of these transformations coming from future owner requests). The cameras are definitely shipping now, as we’ve got our own test camera that we’ll […]

The Digital Bolex D16 camera was wildly successful when it launched on Kickstarter back in March 2012, blowing past its funding goal in just a matter of hours. It’s been a long development process with 100s of improvements made to the camera, and now it’s finally going to be in the hands of shooters within […]

The flexibility that RAW images provide filmmakers in the post-production process is absolutely astounding. However, in the words of Bret Michaels, “Every rose has its thorn.” The thorn, in this case, is the fact that RAW files can make your workflow quite a bit more cumbersome than it ever would be with compressed codecs. Despite […]

It’s been a long and tough road for the team over at Digital Bolex, and while they would be the first to tell you that they would have loved for the product to be out and about already, nothing with camera design is easy or simple, and each project faces its own challenges and difficulties. […]

The Digital Bolex has been making steady progress over the last few months, and we’ve seen a number of posts and test footage from pre-production versions of the camera. You may have heard of sensor calibration being talked about with the Blackmagic Production 4K camera, and that’s because it’s one of the most important parts […]

If it seems like we’ve been talking about the Digital Bolex a lot lately, it’s because we definitely have. A few months ago, it looked as if the release of the D16 was still quite a ways into the future. However, Joe, Elle, and the DB team have really pushed the process and gotten the beta […]

For the past several weeks, footage from the Digital Bolex D16 has slowly but surely been making its way around the web. So far we’ve seen that the D16′s RAW footage is eminently gradable, and that the skin tones are on par with, if not better than any other digital cinema cameras like the Digital […]

With the little bit of footage we’ve been able to see coming from the Digital Bolex, it’s only natural that we not only want to see more of it, but also maybe a few tests of a wider range of conditions to get a better feeling of what the camera can do. Well, the team […]

We got a little tease of the Digital Bolex D16 RAW camera earlier in the week, and some were quite concerned with the small amount of footage being released (though they were very clear that more was coming later in the week). That later in the week is here, and the team over at Digital Bolex […]

It’s been quite a journey for the Digital Bolex team. There have been plenty of bumps along the way, and plenty of haters who said the Digital Bolex would never come to fruition. Well folks, we’ve finally got the first RAW 24fps footage from the prototype of the D16, and it’s clear that the finalized […]

The Digital Bolex D16 camera is on the last legs of its journey towards completion. The project was Kickstarted in March 2012, and was envisioned as a camera for filmmakers that would produce high-quality RAW “digital negatives” from a Super 16mm-sized sensor without any excuses or compromises on image quality. While there have been a number […]

Remember the Digital Bolex? Despite the fact that most of the camera buzz has been around Blackmagic and Canon (with the RAW video hack of the 5D) for the past month or so, Joe and Elle have just kept on with bringing their vision for the Digital Bolex D16 to fruition. While the final design […]
