Bolex goes digital with the D16 Cinema Camera

•, By Ben Coxworth
 The cameras shooting that film were quite often made by the venerable Swiss manufacturer, Bolex. Today, in the age of digital video, film-makers wanting to take a step up from consumer-grade camcorders are looking at some pretty expensive gear. LA-based entrepreneurs Joe Rubinstein and Elle Schneider are trying to change that, with the introduction of their Digital Bolex D16 Cinema Camera.
The result of a successful Kickstarter campaign, the D16 is being developed in partnership with Bolex International. It has the appealing retro looks of a classic 16mm movie camera, but records HD video at a resolution of either 2048 x 1152 (2K) or 1080p, via a Super 16mm-sized sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range. Its frame rate is adjustable up to 32fps, and it records in 12-bit CinemaDNG raw format – this means that the video isn't compressed, as it with other formats.
