What does this mean for Origin and Evolution? I'm planning to shoot a feature on both once I get funding for it...but that's most likely a year or two off.


Probably means that when the day rises, you'll have a ton of options, but very few branded DALSA.

4 years, that's like... a lot in digital terms :)

Two Evolution bodies are on hold/standby for a studio project that started shooting with them last year. Despite the many inquiries I've received about availability, AFAIK DALSA has made no concrete or public plans to rent them to anyone else.

A shame really, several high profile jobs were lining up for Evo cameras in 2009. Unless something remarkable and unexpected happens, all will end up shooting on another film or digital imaging format.

Yes, it really is a shame. Paramount closed their camera department, too. So, no more VistaVision. What are the feature guys gonna use for plates now?

It would be good both for Hollywood and for Dalsa if they'd put the existing cameras into the hands of a local rental house -- cut their losses, but still get a little income. If I were Dalsa, I'd sure be making my first phone call to Denny Clairmont.

yeah... I was hoping to shoot with them some time soon... Really want to get the uncompressed format. The only other 4k (35mm) cam. is Red and they seem dead set against an uncompressed feature on any of their cameras.

Also, the DC division was sold off to Arri, right? What was the agreement between Arri and Dalsa... Is Dalsa prohibited from starting a New DC division, and restarting the Origin and Evolution rentals?

No, the deal for ARRI to license Dalsa technology fell through... and why would Dalsa be able to start a new Digital Cinema division now when the old one couldn't support itself???

If there's enough interest in the use of it.... I mean they basically built the Evolution, then closed up shop. The Evolution being lighter, I'm sure will attract more people. They never even gave it a chance to get out there.
