“If you want to take great photos that you can play around with later, you shoot RAW. And if you want to take great video, ready for the kind of post-processing punishment exacted on it by adding visual effects, you also shoot RAW,” Charlie Sorrel reports for Cult of Mac.
“However, while you can get a RAW-shooting stills camera for under $500, a RAW-capable video camera is professional only, running to tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Sorrel reports, “I’m not sure how the Swiss Bolex 16mm movie camera company will take to the name of Rubinstein’s camera, but if the Digital Bolex comes in on budget and if the images are as good as those in the test footage below.”
