Open Source, Ultra-Bright LED Lumapad with WiFi & Arduino

Open source, 8000 lumen, ultra bright LED light pad with Electric IMP WIFI, Atmel AVR & Arduino micro controller built in.
Christophe LARUE's insight:

With the success of this project, the Lumapad will be one of the brightest LED lights made with all these incredible features.  Thirty two (32) ultra bright LEDs are positioned in a landscape array to provide bright, even and controllable lighting on any subject.  It is truly unbelievable how bright this thing is even though it draws only 88 watts.

Canon Global : News | News Releases

Canon Global : News | News Releases | Cinematography | Scoop.it
Canon develops 35 mm full-frame CMOS sensor for video capture.
Christophe LARUE's insight:

The newly developed CMOS sensor features pixels measuring 19 microns square in size, which is more than 7.5-times the surface area of the pixels on the CMOS sensor incorporated in Canon's top-of-the-line EOS-1D X and other digital SLR cameras. In addition, the sensor's pixels and readout circuitry employ new technologies that reduce noise, which tends to increase as pixel size increases. Thanks to these technologies, the sensor facilitates the shooting of clearly visible video images even in dimly lit environments with as little as 0.03 lux of illumination, or approximately the brightness of a crescent moon—a level of brightness in which it is difficult for the naked eye to perceive objects. When recording video of astral bodies, while an electron-multiplying CCD,*2 which realizes approximately the same level of perception as the naked eye, can capture magnitude-6 stars, Canon's newly developed CMOS sensor is capable of recording faint stars with a magnitude of 8.5 and above.

Zeiss Contax Lenses: Resolution and Physical Characteristics. By Matthew Jeppsen

Zeiss Contax Lenses: Resolution and Physical Characteristics. By Matthew Jeppsen | Cinematography | Scoop.it

Posted by Matthew Jeppsen on February 8, 2013 • 

 

"This is Part II of my three part series on Zeiss/Contax lenses for video.

In my Part I article, I discussed cost and feasability considerations in regards to these lenses, and offered a few tips on how to shop for a set of your own Zeiss Contax lenses. In this Part II article, I’ll discuss resolution charts and my notes on how the lenses perform at various apertures. I’ll also discuss about the handling and aesthetic reasons why I chose to build my lens set around Contax.

My forthcoming Part III article will delve a little more into the look of a Zeiss/Contax lens, the aesthetic it lends to the image. I will include a few examples of bokeh and flare characteristics at certain apertures. Onward…

 

Resolution Performance
Here is a ZIP file of full-quality PNG framegrabs of a DSC Labs resolution chart, that show the performance of these Zeiss/Contax lenses on a Canon C300 camera. For comparison, I have included resolution frames of the Canon 85/1.8 and 50/1.4.

 

Some observations on resolution performance:"

RED Announces Black-and-White ‘EPIC Monochrome’ Camera | Cinematography | Scoop.it

RED has just announced a monochrome version of the RED EPIC-M. Yes, it only does black-and-white. Why would they do this? Because without the need to debayer (the process by which colors are interpolated from otherwise colorless data), the full luminance values can be utilized, giving sharper and theoretically lower-noise images.

Apertus Axiom
Christophe LARUE's insight:

Apertus Axiom Alpha is the name of the Apertus Axiom prototype that is more than just a proof-of-concept. It is planned to already meet the demands of real world applications like being used for film production. We are certain though that while it will not be the answer to all our prayers and not the goal of all our dreams yet it will be the first step to embark on a journey to that place where we want to be one day. The main motto with Alpha is "Keep it simple!". The features are reduced to the absolute essential core. No luxuries.
