For example the new boards will use the same enclosure as the current one so all accessories that we will create before 373 is released will also work with 373 later on.
The same applies to software. Everything we created so far ElphelVision, DNG converter, etc. will work with Elphel 373 out of the box or with minor modifications.
On the Elphel development you can see what Andrey has recently been doing: http://blogs.elphel.com/2010/11/zoom-in-now-enhance/
Now that Eyesis is released and Andreys image processing software is taking shape I hope he will soon have time to finish the Elphel 373 hardware/software. The timeframe for the completion is limited because the AXIS CPU in current Elphel 353 cameras was discontinued and only a limited amount is still available.
Hi there. I have read the article and wonder why not use a 35mm sensor from start to match the 35mm lenses? Smaller lenses are less sharper so you don't really have create algorithms to compensate blurriness. I mean, wouldn't it be better to try to capture a natural picture as possible?
If you look at the new Sony NEX-FS100 it is build like that. Even though I don't really like the image of the camera the compatibility is great. You can use a variety lenses, this is good for a DIY project like this.
Maybe the article was only meant for the Eyeis but I still think a 35mm sensor would take out the maximum from the lenses.
