reviews the Digital Bolex D16:
Read the rest of the review here. This part is interesting”
What the Super 16mm BMD Pocket Camera has over the Super 16mm Digital Bolex
Better sensitivity…the Pocket Camera is rated as 800, the Bolex I believe is around 200-300. It cannot currently go higher than 400, but this will change to 800 with imminent new firmware…
ProRes internal recording OR Cinema DNG…
Playback of clips. This is coming in firmware to the Bolex but is not ready as of yet. No Playback…
The active MFT mount is great with all the choice of glass and many adaptors out there, PLUS the wonderful Metabones Pocket Camera Speed Booster.
Removable battery (although you need a lot of them), Bolex has internal that lasts around 3-4 hours.
Recording onto SDHC media, whilst the cards that work are hugely expensive, it is more convenient that currently only being able to record onto the internal SSD.
Much cheaper…without the accessories.
It’s a lot smaller…and a lot lighter!!
The screen on the Pocket Camera sucks…it’s still WAY better than the absolutely awful one on the Bolex…lets just use that for menus only!
