We have now had the Axiom beta model for a couple of months, and during this time we have been programming and working on not only 1080p30 and 1080p60 HD recording but also looking at fully uncompressed 4K image capture.
Recent developments from Panavision and Light Iron has opened an interesting discussion on Colour Science, the art of creating the very best images based on digital imaging science.
The Axiom beta camera does allow us to delve directly into this area of research, by recording the raw sensor data directly (to a new file format) and then to process that information with new software to a useable and gradeable image.
The next set of posts will be based on the image capture capabilities and what we have achieved so far.
Two areas will be covered, basic 1080p30 HD recording via external recorders and HDMI/SDI outputs and full 4K raw sensor data capture (not debayered at capture) and then the processing (debayer/demosaic) those raw snap12 images into useable images.
