http://www.digitalbolex.com/thank-you/ today digital bolex announced to step back from camera manufacturing... i don't own one but it's sad to see less oportunities on the camera market.
16:00
se6astian
woah
16:00
se6astian
too bad
16:01
toxitobi
Well they didn't say anything about going open source... ;-) but it would be a great move from them so the camera could live on.
16:02
toxitobi
maybe a some point with axiom internals ;-)
16:03
se6astian
I dont think thats part of their mindset
16:04
toxitobi
no I don#t think either but doing support until forever doesn't sound so beneficial.
16:05
rgon
Well, tough moments like those can change people's way of thinking so who knows
16:05
rgon
BTW, hi people :)

rgon
Been reading the log for almost a month without saying anything...
16:05
toxitobi
hi rgon nice to hear from you silent reader ;-)
16:08
toxitobi
I think the bolex did a lot thinks good e.g. the sound department and also the formfactor if you're not somebody who likes rigs a lot :-)
16:11
rgon
That's true, but I think what prevented people from buying it was the price... the D16 is $3k
16:12
rgon
I mean it has got it's uses and benefits, but when people see they can choose between the 2k Bolex and a BMPC4k, they most probably would go with the Blackmagic, even though it is a completely different camera
16:20
toxitobi
I higher pricepoint is only possible when you have features that seperate you from the rest. this is the only reason Axiom Beta yould work nobody is doing an open source Cam until now

Well, off course, but sadly the people choose if there's value behind that price point. 12-bit color and 24-bit audio might not be as important for some people. However, having an evolving, open, modifyable, free camera does seem valuable, however
16:34
rgon
Anyways, their idea of going back to a super-8 style shooting was quite cool, and IMO, their camera was different than any other. It is sad to see these people retire from the market.

it is rahter about that the market for such a niche device has saturated

If there is no new tech that brings in better specs the people are craving for it's hard to sustain the market I'd say. In the end they didn't have or didn't want to spend the money to continue development...
