Here's a few photo's of the prototype - bear in mind that it's still work in progress, the red parts are printed plastic parts and will not be there in the final version - the body is 3mm aluminium black anodized.
What you get here is an exclusive sneak peak - there will be video's available and professional photo's taken once the final camera has been made and we are ready for production.
The photo's are taken with my mobile phone so they are not the best quality by far.
Side view of camera
As mentioned the red potentiometers will be replaced and the cover behind them will not be there as well - this will be all aluminium the reason for the cover was because there used to be an LCD display here but that was taken off.
The potentiometers control monitor volume for the headphone and recording gain for the microphone.
All functions / menus are controlled by the JOG wheel - this will not change.
There's one record button, an on/off button and a third button "Phase Advance" which is not showed here as the aluminium side used for this photo series doesn't have the hole for it.
The SD Card is popped up here (it's used for storage of audio) - when inserted it aligns with the aluminium edge of the camera.
On the back side here's what you get:
3.5mm Jack stereo line input
3.5mm Jack monitor audio for headphones
3.5mm Jack mono microphone input
Neutrik XLR + 3pin Jack for true 48V Phantom powered microphone (mono)
USB for firmware upgrade, parameter settings, audio retrieval etc.
7.4V Lithium Ion battery which will last several films worth of shooting on a single charge. (there are many different batteries in different sizes available)
A photo of the Lilliput monitor showing the thru-lens shot with overlaid information - right here the camera is parking it's shutter - what is not shown (because of current parking mode) is:
- Audio VU level
- Light level
- SD Card and audio information
Also you have the option to choose from remaining or elapsed frames.
Camera seen from the other side with the lid on - the white wifi antenna is also visible.
Sorry Matt but you need to go somewhere else for a c*** tease this time
