Joe and Elle at the Digital Bolex project excitedly announce that shipping of the Digital Bolex D16 begins this week! That is a significant milestone for those people who risked a good bit of cash in the Digital Bolex kickstarter 2+ years ago as well as for the indie filmmakers of the world who now have another inexpensive tool to add to their tool kit.
Plus, the next 500 cameras will be up for pre-order soon!
we are also announcing our first official pre-sale for the next 500 cameras! This pre-sale will open on December 16th at 10am EST through our website with a retail price of $3,299 for a 256 GB camera, and $3,599 for the 512 GB camera. Stay tuned for the official pre-sale link which we’ll be announcing here later in the week.
So, a new low cost 2k RAW video platform that was once just a dream, and something started by someone other than a large conglomerate, and something that is unique for indie filmmakers is finally being shipped!
This is indeed significant news!
