When, or better yet, if Digital Bolex production models are ever delivered, then they can be compared to a working camera system like the Ikonskop. Until then, I think there are prophecy threads about the camera elsewhere."The enemy of art is the absence of limitations"
"To me the great hope is... people that normally wouldn't be making movies will make them and suddenly some little fat girl in Ohio will be the new Mozart and will make a beautiful film using her father's camera-corder and the "Professionalism" of movie making will be destroyed forever and it will finally become an art form."

in the not too distant future you will get 4K for $3000. its inevitable, but the simple fact of the matter is this,features cost money, and its not just in parts, its in software integration, man hours, testing etc....
i bet this is why the 3K3K$ scarlet project got scrapped, and why the Dbolex only has a B/w 640p tap (stock configuration). stuff will always cost money.

Th Dbolex will be a bare bones camera. No menus, histograms, probably not even any lens control. Plus it uses an off the shelf sensor, no proprietary storage media, probably no proprietary batteries, etc.
Could Red have done this for 3k? I'd be really surprised if they could make the Scarlet, but couldn't produce a camera with almost none of the features the Scarlet has.
The fact is Red didn't fail to make a 3k camera, they didn't want to make a 3k camera. It didn't fit into their modular, proprietary media, proprietary sensor philosophy.
Would you rather shoot with the a-cam than a Bolex? I'm guessing you would. The A-cam will be a more polished shooting experience. Shooting with the Bolex will be very primitive. You may even have to break out a light meter.
Just depends on your budget. The a-cam does make very nice images.

I have lurked on this thread for a while and have lusted seriously after the A Cam - until the BlackMagic announcement. I think Ikonoskop (along with other companies) will have to seriously reevaluate their pricing models.
I really like Ikonoskop's approach to RAW image capture, partly because it seems that it would be so much easier to shoot with (e.g., a real viewfinder, CCD instead of CMOS) - but at €7700 (over $10,000), I am not able to justify owning one when I can get 12 bit RAW capture via Thunderbolt from a larger sensor for $3000 from the MagicCam.
And for me personally, Vimeo compression notwithstanding, I like the video I have seen from the MagicCam better than the video I have seen from the A Cam. The DR is fabulous on both cams, but the BMC seems (to me) to outresolve the Ikonoskop.
I hope that Ikonoskop (and DBolex) are able to hang in there, because the more competition we have in this space, the better. But for right now, I'll bet there's a lot of consternation up there in Stockholm.Hybrid Camera Revolution
