    hi,
    i wanted to star this thread cause i cant post at Dvinfo, where
    the camera is being discussed.

    http://www.sumix.com/products/camera...smx-12a2c.html


    i have some questions becaue im pretty new to the digital workflow. i hope
    someone can help me.


    1.) is the camera ready to shoot when i get it after i attached my lens for 2/3sensors/16mm film, and connected to my laptop?

    3.) is there any software included in the package, that gives me control over the camera, e.g. shutter, gain, curves....

    4.) is there any other way for monitoring, then using my laptop? any outputs i could use?

    5.) which outputs has the camera?

    6.) does is get the power from the connection to the laptop?

    7.) can i attach it to a tripod?

    8.) can i record sound with the camera?

    9.) on the dvinfo forum Farhad Towfiq posted this:
    "We are considering to move to newer sensor P4562-3T as quickly as possible and limit this version of the camera with P3562 to production of 20-100 cameras. Therefore, this version will be more like a collector item."

    is the version that is sold right now (SMX-12A2C) the so called "collector item" or has it already buit in the new sensor, and what would be the differences of the sensors?


    best regards, and sorry for my bad english

    It's $2500, by the way. Does it do variable frame rates, and is 24 one of the frame rates offered?

    I know, that's what I was saying under 3k. I'm definitely on board, it's only a matter of time before they update their status again.

    I think 24 and 25 are one of the framerates judging by the sample videos.

    Ah yes, right. They say delivery is about 4 to 5 weeks after you place your order.

    What's the workflow like? What do you capture footage to, what do you use to edit, etc. It says 12 bits... what kind of color sampling? I'd guess 4:2:0 since it's using a Beyer pattern...

    Also, who's their target market? Clearly not the digital cinema crowd, is it for security cameras?

    I like that c-mount option; I wonder if I could get an adapter for my old CP16's Zeiss 10-100...

    EDIT... yep.

    It's listed for Cinematographers and you get a discount if you work in film.

    Take a look at the sample images, very impressive, I wonder if the Letus genius guy could make a c-mount 35 mm adaptor?

    Thats a commination I would like to see...

    well i emailed them to get some more info and this is what they said:

    Q Does recoarding software come with it?
    A. Yes, the recording soft is part of the delivery kit

    Q: Can you shoot 24p?
    A: Shooting at 24p: yes, at full resolution in 12 bit mode the max fps is 30, in 8 bit mode - 60 frame rate is user controlled

    Q. Color Sampling 4:2:0, 4:1:1, 4:2:2, 4:4:4?
    A. Camera does no bayer->rgb conversion, it just sends raw frames to PC. Application can use one of the implemented conversion algorithms of camera API or an algorithm developed by user. Camera API provides access to raw data.


    One thing i did notice about the footage is that it looked like there was a slight flickering/strobeing effect happening. Has anyone else noticed this?


    hope this info is useful.
