When you google "DIY Flying Probe" you will notice that such a project does not seem to exist - until now. Which is a pity as we think the vast amount of desktop 3D printers and router CNC mills have laid the foundation and provided the availability of all required parts to build something like this by now. So lets do it :). DIY Flying Probe Concept Rendering Concept The approach is rather simple: We use the same stepper motors, sliding bearings, rails, geared belts and electronics that are... Read more

Latest News Overview Tech Specs Image Sensors Modularity Development Status AXIOM Beta is a brand new professional digital image capturing platform and the crowd funding backers get access to it before anybody else does. So we want to make sure that you are aware of what you are getting yourself into. We're inviting you to be part of this journey as a contributor (you do not need to be a programmer to use the AXIOM Beta), helping to shape the final product. The AXIOM Beta is being built...

Latest News Overview Tech Specs Modularity Partners About The AXIOM Gamma is the AXIOM Betas big brother and packs more performance and modularity in a larger and more expensive package. The AXIOM Gamma is planned to utilize a fully modular hardware concept (the "Open Module Concept") that allows swapping of all essential camera components like changing PCIe cards in your PC. But since this modularity also includes the enclosure there is no single way the AXIOM Gamma can look like, below you... Read more
Overview Tech Specs Image Sensor Videos Related Articles apertus° AXIOM Alpha is the name of a proof-of-concept prototype that is more than just a lab experiment. It is already meeting the demands of some real world applications like being used for film production to some degree. We are certain though that while it will not be the answer to all our prayers and not the goal of all our dreams yet it can be seen as the first step to embark on a journey to that place where we want to be one day...

We implemented Pong as April fools joke in 2014 when we claimed AXIOM has been bought by a Japanese game console manufacturer and from now was to be turned into a cinematic retro gaming console.

Real Buttons and Knobs The AXIOM Remote was funded as a stretch goal in the AXIOM Beta crowd funding campaign and is still in development. It features push-buttons and switches as well as 2 rotary encoders (also with push-button function) that can be used to control a wide range of camera parameters like shutter speed, gain, overlays, FPS, gamma curves etc. To keep everything as flexible as possible the buttons next to the LCD have dynamic functionality as their commands are displayed next to...

Notice: This page is about the Elphel® Model 353 camera NOT about apertus° Axiom ! Elphel® is a registered trademark of Elphel, Inc. Notice: The apertus° project to turn the Elphel camera into a digital cinema camera has been discontinued with the plans for the AXIOM camera . See still images captured with the Elphel camera. See the prototypes apertus° members have built with the Elphel camera. The Elphel 353 Model free software and open hardware camera is a very interesting and powerful device... Read more

About A debug PMOD interface for FPGA development (like for the Zedboard) featuring 64 LEDS that can conveniently be interfaced from inside the FPGA. With the FPGA executing all instructions concurrently, you cannot inspect actions in a step-by-step manner and debug FPGA operations like normal code with breakpoints. As such, this LED matrix is a convenient way to visualize all the processes performed inside the FPGA with your VHDL code. The LEDs are multiplexed (4 blocks: LO, RO, LU, RU with 16... Read more

Notice: This page is about the Elphel® Model 353 camera NOT about apertus° Axiom ! Elphel® is a registered trademark of Elphel, Inc. Power Consumption Elphel offers the modified Elphel 353 camera that works with 12-36V DC for additional 50$. This modification is the key to enable mobile operation. The best efficiency range is said to be at around 15V. Typical Elphel camera power consumption: 2400 milliwatts just booted 3000 milliwatts after setting image parameters 3700 milliwatts streamer on... Read more

Notice: This page is about the Elphel® Model 353 camera NOT about apertus° Axiom ! Elphel® is a registered trademark of Elphel, Inc. In the Elphel camera recording audio in sync with video is done by using Linux-compatible (since most USB devices do not require additional drivers they just need to be plugged in and are ready to go - so far all devices we tried worked out of the box) USB audio devices. These are widely available and range from simple thumb sticks with two 3.5mm jacks to multi... Read more

About Professional cinema grade lighting equipment is expensive. But after a Kinoflo Divalite 401 tear down we discovered that it consists mostly of off-the-shelf parts that can be sourced locally for a fraction of the price of buying from the original manufacturer. So this DIY project seeks to build a light that is almost as good as the original for just a fraction of the price. Future expansions could make it better than the original though: put in an Arduino like micro controller plus... Read more
