The AXIOM Beta is being built together with experts from the Magic Lantern team. The community that brought you the features Canon never
wanted you to have are now bringing a cinema camera into the film-making world.
Because the AXIOM project and the software they originally pioneered are underpinned by the same ethos, Magic Lantern partnered with apertus° Association in September 2014. Since then they’ve been responsible for color science and raw processing inside the camera.
All of our software is released under the GNU
General Public License V3, all our documentation under the Creative Commons License, and all hardware under the Cern Open Hardware License.
Our Association is a supporter of the Free Software Foundation Europe and the AXIOM project is listed with the Open Source Hardware Association.
To familiarise yourself with the ethos which underpins this project and how apertus° serves the wider community see our Mission Statement.
The AXIOM project has been built around the Linux
operating system. Together with the development tools it offers, Linux provides unparalleled control
over the camera software’s functions and processing, but you don’t have to be a programmer to operate
AXIOM Beta’s software incorporates a purpose-built user interface so that general functions e.g. shutter presets, ISO and inputting meta-data, can be controlled from the comfort of WiFi connected devices such as laptops, tablets and smart-phones.
