Quote:
Cinemartin has announced the launch of Fran LT, Fran (STD), and Fran Plus, three new 8K camera models offered at introductory prices until December 31, 2019. The company also plans to start shipping a new line of ultra-high brightness 2500 nit 7" HDMI+SDI monitors by the end of the month.
The Fran LT is the lineup's introductory model, featuring a 24MP sensor, maximum 7920 x 3024 resolution, and aluminum chassis. The mid-tier Fran (STD) is more advanced with a 32MP sensor, maximum 7920 x 4096 resolution, and mixed aluminum and carbon fiber chassis. The line's most advanced model, the Fran Plus, has a 47.7MP sensor, maximum 7920 x 6024 resolution, and fully carbon fiber body.

If you aren’t familiar with the Fran, they are 8K cameras with a global shutter with the ability to record RAW images onto removable m.2 NVME SSD drives. Cinemartin claims that the VistaVision sensor they will be using is the World’s biggest commercially available sensor you can purchase. With dimensions of 37 x 27 mm this equates to an area of 999mm. To put that size in perspective the RED Monstro VV sensor size is 40.96 x 21.6 mm which equates to 884 mm. The Arri Alexa 65 has a 54.12 x 25.58 mm sized sensor (1384mm).


In somewhat of a strange marketing spiel, Cinemartin says, “No matter if you drive a Ferrari, travel in a taxi Mercedes Benz, enjoy a motorbike, or go walking, now you can afford a true 8K workflow, in all steps, from the camera to TV.”


The introduction video is nothing short of terrible and is hardly a glowing endorsement for the camera. From the bad audio to the horrible choice of music, it is definitely not the right way to get customers interested in your product.

Design a box, send to China, buy a off-the-shelf chip in China, get it assembled in China, now you have your own fancy camera brand.

LOL midway into the introductory video I was still not sure if the whole thing was a parody or an ad for some new camera. One thing it seems to work well at though, it makes you lose faith in this whole business enterprise.

Midway? The framing at the beginning and use of no microphone in a echo chamber (instead using built in camera mic) was the dead giveaway

-> No longer looking for Hi-Vision LDs <-

(I buried that format finally)
