I know Jason has already told everyone on the forum about the camera, but that was still before NAB and there has been a lot happening with it since then. For starters, I am working for Inspired Minority Pictures and we are busy using the camera on our feature film shoot in Cape Town, South Africa. To say the least these camera's are AWESOME. I suggest you take a look at our weblog at www.indiefilmlive.blogspot.com to get up to date info. There are some pictures of the camera in action and some video clips.

For those new to the camera I will just tell you a bit about it here:

The SI-1920HDVR combines a digital cinema class 1920x1080P camera with CineForm's revolutionary Visually Perfectョ CineForm RAW?codec in an embedded PC architecture under Microsoft Windows XP. The camera is connected directly to the computer, so expensive tape stock is no longer an issue. It is also possible to attach a 160GB notebook hard drive to the camera for up to 4 hours of free-roaming shooting. The camera uses modern cinema PL mount lenses, as well as affordable F and compact C mount lenses that is connected to a single large format 2/3? CMOS sensor with an on-chip 12-bit A/D converter. This is then fed through wire into a 'wafian' box and into the PC. Originally developed for the independent film maker the camera provides superb image quality at a low cost. With release during the third quarter of the year the camera is costing in the area of only $20 000.

What do you all think?
