Small Camera Update
I am waiting on two pieces of information to create a bigger camera update with some really cool stuff, but it is going to take another week or so, so I thought I would do a little camera update in the mean time.
1st as some of you have seen in other places we are sticking with CF cards, we were thinking about changing to SD cards because of the price and some interesting projections for the future of SD, but in testing it turned out that the SD cards were significantly slower, even when advertised as the same speed.
2nd we are hiring a new Project / Production Manager on the electronics design team to really spear head the work flow of this project, work on schedules, and help us ramp up to higher production numbers soon. We have already hired 3 additional software engineers and 2 additional hardware guys who are all working on this camera full time. That makes it 9 people full time and 10 people part time, so we have a team of 19 people working on this camera right now!
3rd, the software designed by Pomfort is going well! They have created the basic transcoding function, next step is to integrate it with the rest of the software, and create the best workflow we can think of.
This is some of the things we will be talking about in the bigger camera update; body design, a set of Bolex S16mm C-mount lenses, new crank feature, new website functionality, and of course delivery date.
I know we are so close, and everyone is excited to get their hands on one or at least read news from people that have gotten their hands on one, but please be patient, I assure you we are working as fast as we can :)
Thank you all for your support, Joe
