Bienvenu sur le projet apertus°!

L'objectif de la communauté et du projet apertus° est de créer des caméras de cinéma puissantes, libres et ouvertes que nous, cinéastes, aimerions avoir. L'idée d'utiliser une caméra Elphel à cette fin particulière est né en 2006, a trouvé de nombreux adeptes au fil des ans et a finalement abouti à la création d'une communauté nommée "Apertus", et à ce site web. Cliquez ici pour en savoir plus sur le projet apertus° , et sur nos dernières réalisation pour construire à partir de zéro la toute première caméra de cinéma numérique composée de logiciels et matériels libres: apertus° Axiom

Google Summer of Code Projects - Coding Begins

For this year’s Summer of Code, Google awarded apertus° three student slots. This is significant as new mentoring organizations are warned that they’re likely to receive a maximum of 1-2 slots in their first year. We set out to choose the best of the best from almost thirty project proposals - a difficult decision as all were of a very high standard. The chosen students have already started reading up on the required documentation and have been familiarising themselves with development tools as... » Read more

Nothing was shot to highlight specific aspects of the camera's development, rather, we wanted to... » Read more
