All,

i'm looking at using at a machine vision type of camera sytem and would like some comments.

goal a full 2k pipeline

lens
Nikon F-mount or
standard C-mount

driver
lower cost traditional 35mm lenses
super wide angle lenses wo fisheye may not easy obtain

camera consideration
Dalsa Pilot
1080p
24/30 fps
Mono 16 (dcam mono 16) or color 10-bit
GigE interface
quote on the way
durable, known mfg

software
hooking into Premiere, AE may not be easy, but am Labview guru


Mono vs color

mono is full 16-bit, effective 12-bit, you get the full bang of all of the pixels without deBayering or demosacing.

color 10-bit.

i'm quite ok with film noir look.

please post comments.

thanks!

i know there is a similar thread but wanted to start a fresh one as i have my components pretty much picked out.

also i'm aware that with the lens, i will have to divide by square root of two, i.e., if i want 35mm look i need 24mm lens.

Good choice Glen!

I think that MVC's are the way to go if you want to work with a small configuration camera, plus you get all advantages of CineForm!...especially they are well suited for 3-D work.

And everything at less cost than similar HD camera configurations.
