In a statement released today (and reproduced below in full) ARRI has announced that its Amira camera will can be upgraded to record UHD (not 4K) internally, as UHDProRes

Digital Bolex D16 shipping in a few weeks

Published in Production

A recent blog post from the folks behind the Digital Bolex eludes to an on-schedule release of its long-awaited camera.

To mark the occasion of the new year, our editor has asked me to come up with some predictions for the coming twelve months

Sensors need better technology, not more resolution

Published in Technology

Recently I've been expressing the view that all cameras are pretty much the same, because they all use the similar technology (give or take) for their sensors. I don't mean to be unnecessarily cruel about the work of camera manufacturers – taking an electronic component such as an imaging sensor and making it into a usable tool is far from trivial. Still, the absolute performance of cameras is determined by what you can get off the lump of silicon behind the lens

Last time, we discussed some of the technical concerns of lens selection and the issues of compatibility with sensors of various configurations and sizes. In this part, we'll look at the effects sensor size has on photography and the engineering compromises behind lenses and sensors

Scientists at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have developed a new sensor technology based on Graphene, which is 1000 times more light sensitive than existing CMOS or CCD sensors

What if the RED Dragon was a still camera?

Published in Technology

 

The technology in video and still cameras is converging, as still sensors become capable of video at very high resolutions. But why to some cameras cost 20 times more than others?

Why would you use CCD when CMOS is newer and cheaper?

How to understand Dynamic Range

Published in Technology

Camera performance is now measured as much in terms of Dynamic Range as Resolution. Phil Rhodes explains this essential aspect of camera technology

Red Dragon Sensor: "More resolution than 65mm film..."

Published in Production

RedShark contributor Phil Rhodes pointed out something to me the other day that sounds obvious when you hear it: that camera makers never used to make film, and yet - if you can remember that far back - it is the film that determines the quality and feel of the photograph (and the lens, of course), not the camera
