This is looking pretty interesting. Lens options on such a compact form-factor...nice!

It really looks protable, doesn't it? Wonder if there is a way to get my Canon lenses on it :uwphotog: Between that and Scarlet some interesting options for smaller units and travel...

looking promising indeed and its real - not vapourware! I suppose Scarlet will come one fine day, but gee they're stringing it out somewhat! (perhaps the understatement of the first 10 years of the new millennium) Anyway back to Ikonoskop - this thing is small!

are there any +/- 100 degree wides for such a physically tiny chip?
if there is I imagine plenty of depth of field!
raw sounds very nice, albeit memory hungry.

It's a 2/3" sensor so it's 4x multiplier for focal length compared to 35mm. Plenty of DOF already. :)
Still would like to see how a Peleng 3.5 would work on that.

More updates - this thing is looking more and more sexy!

http://www.freshdv.com/category/news ........ scroll down to the second video clip. This is a very interesting interview from NAB 2010

this one is a bit older i think but i've not seen it before - still interesting even if a bit older. ....http://www.macvideo.tv/camera-technology/features/index.cfm?articleid=104645

The single biggest thing to me for a raw recording device is the size. I want small. Capturing raw uncompressed footage in such a small unobtrusive form factor opens up lots of possibilities. Housing it will be a problem of course. Who would make a housing for it? Still there is a lot more to making a film then just underwater and even if we only used this cam above water for all the lead in/out of dive sites etc .....makes life easy to not have to lug a huge cam around getting all the atmosphere shots etc. Well what do i know....but thats my thinking on it anyway.
