Mobile internet allows cameras to become live broadcast studios anywhere there is coverage so while not a primary cinematography application definitely a TV camera application :)

the super8 idea ist great, especially for artists and hobbyists who want to get in touch with AXIOM.
Also this has the opportunity to get people on board because it is a low threshold first contact to the project.

anuejn added a comment to T213: An entry level low price version of the Axiom.

Some updates on this front:
Last ccc @vup @leftshift and me decided to build a cheap development version of the Beta.
We wanted to have a cheap camera to be able to develop soft- and hardware for the Beta without the need to invest a lot of money.
Research was done, the cheapest Zynq FPGA development board was found, the cheapest suitable CMOS with okayish documentation was picked and we designed a first Interface PCB to connect the sensor to the FPGA dev board. We build FPGA designs and wrote some software and in the end we had the first still images. The first prototype of the AXIOM micro was built.
However, the initial PCB was quite rough and had major problems (we were doing serious PCB design for the first time in our lives).
This led us to the creation of a second revision, which now is able to shoot moving images, has a proper lens mount and some case.

ic47 added a comment to M34: Axiom Beta Compact enclosure and labeling.

Snap, totally forgot about the Compact Shell! Which is kind of a cage, I guess. And cages are... You need to buy a cage or extra rails for more mounting points with every new camera you buy these days. It would be great if cameras had all the mounting points themselves. Saves both weight and money.

And maybe add an extra 1/4” hole on the bottom end of the camera, right underneath the 1/4” hole on the right hand side while you’re at it. A rail there could allow my wooden side handle to be attached.

Mar 22 2018, 9:26 AM · AXIOM Beta Hardware
ic47 added a comment to M34: Axiom Beta Compact enclosure and labeling.

Thanks guys. For the camera to work without a cage, I really need at least two 1/4” holes on either side, vertically aligned. So the right hand side has got that covered, the left hand side doesn’t. One extra hole down below would allow a Nato rail to be attached and then we’d be home free.

Another point I mentioned already but feel need to put emphasis on now: If we here collectively develop a new battery solution the result will very likely remain an open source DIY kit for tinkeres and people interested in building their own experimental battery assemblies. Due to the regulations and certificates requires for bringing new battery products to the market we will most likely not be able to afford making it a real retail product..

Using 4 cells with a single pcb on top, forming a unit of battery.
This unit can be stacked to form the size of battery you want, in 4, 8, 12, 16 cells and so.

that sounds good.

From the electronics perspective there is no major change between the two. You can desing different cases that hold the amount of cells each camera needs.
I think tho, that we need to find a common connector and holding for all the batteries. So you can interchange them between different models of cameras.

agree.

What i see a little tricky is the hot swappable battery.

What about having a dual battery mount (two smaller batteries (8cells each) instead of one 16 cell battery)? would it be hot swappable then if you exchange one after another?
