Daniel Jonsäter - co-founder Ikonoskop
Ikonoskop has announced the first A-Cam dll has now been delivered with a batch of five new cameras being assembled for shipping in December.
The A-cam dII records uncompressed 1920x1080 RAW images in the CinemaDNG format, stored in individual files.
CinemaDNG is an open, documented fileformat designed for storing uncompressed high-resolution image streams of camera RAW data. Each image is encoded using the DNG image format. The image stream is stored as a sequence of image files in a file directory. The fileformat contains image data and metadata. The metadata contains of timecode, time, date, framerate etc.
The Ikonoskop is not much larger than a palm-corder and yet is capable of shooting images good enough for cinema projection. The camera records native 1920 x 1080 pixels uncompressed. The result has been described as pristine quality. The Ikonoskop is a small, light, versatile camera aimed at being a Super 16mm replacement, featuring a sensor very close to a piece of Super 16mm film. At 1.5 kg the Ikonoskop is arguably the smallest professional digital motion picture camera on the market capable of recording pristine quality at very high data rates.
