Apertus: open source cinema
Interesting development, is this the true democratization of (digital) film technology?
The goal of the Apertus project is to create a powerful, free (in terms of liberty) and open cinema camera that we as filmmakers love to use. The idea of using an Elphel camera for this particular purpose was born in 2006, found many followers over the years and ultimately resulted in this community driven project entitled “Apertus”.
Check out the project website.
And newsflash: The first open source cinema camera has now been announced: the Apertus Axiom. Will stay ‘well below the 10.000 dollar target price’, apparently!
