Open Source as a dream camera - overt?[17:12 thu,24.November 2011 by Rudi Schmidts]
Interchangeable lenses, global shutter, raw, MJPEG or Dirac Pro recording, 4K and variable frame rates at 2K, remote control via tablet or netbook, XLR connections at affordable USB audio, eSATA recording and all modular, so you can buy more time and again, when a component is too small ... That sounds nice to be true? Well, but also a Jim Jannard has even begun to dream about. And the people behind apertus are obvious even from the dream state out: What is promised here under Open Source Cinema invites at least once for an hour-long Schmoerkern. There were already built several prototypes and is currently one be on the lookout for a large format sensor to a kind of DIY RED reality. Here are consistently open source hardware and software components forUse. The recording control unit based on a JAVA app EphelVision, provides the means ibvlc (jvlc) a real-time streaming preview. It can be used any transfer functions. A hardware control unit (affectionately called the dictator) is to be implemented on a BeagleBoard. Thanks to the USB port can be for just incredible 25 â‚¬ XLR inputs with phantom power, and manual recording level Kopfhoererkontrolle be retrofitted. Even with the battery of course is open to the free market. And even 3-D configurations of two cameras are also supported by the software already. But who now thinks to have found his dream, but is overtaken by the reality check. TheVideo examples based on a 1/2.5 "CMOS sensor abound, from artifacts. And that is perhaps where the biggest problem of the project to be buried. Tip sensors for film applications such as Canon's new sensor in the C300 or REDs Mysterium-X are on get free market is not as easily or quickly cost several thousand dollars. Even sensors that can be found for under 1000 â‚¬ to DSLRs are apparently not to buy individually in similar price regions. hope is doing the November 2010 (Presented by CMOSIS sensor), in addition to a global shutter also promises up to 300fps in 10-bit Liquiditations. He is said to be available well below $ 1,000 in small batches. Seen
