Medium Format (?) global shutter, wow. Is it fujifilm / sony?
Ahhhhhh what the heck! It's Apple!
Apple is getting into 3D-XYZ plastic filament printing and 3D-XYZ metal powder deposition 3D printing in a BIG WAY and they needed a rugged and portable high quality Medium Format, Global Shutter combined Still Photo and Video imaging system that has a built-in LED/IR 3D-XYZ scanning system that is BOTH for video/stills and for engineering/design use. Ergo, they designed/built a new MF Global Shutter camera which I just happen to have seen.... ;-)
The pixels it saves are RGB + D (D is for distance) or YCbCr + D (D is for distance) as 64-bit pixels (16 bits per colour plus distance channel!) so not only is actual image data saved but also its 3D nature so one can capture, upload, edit and change 3D captured imagery within a VERY EASY-TO-USE CAD/CAM/FEA software system they supply and then you can 3D PRINT IT ALL in plastic filament (multiple types from ABS to Polyester and more!) AND in sintered Aluminum, Stainless Steel OR Titanium!
The 64-bit RGBA/YCbCrA pixels are ALSO good for extremely high quality video capture at 8192 by 4320 pixel resolution at 60 fps (and 120 fps soon enough!) at 64-bits per pixel. Still photos are 50.3 megapixels also 4:4:4:4 RAW or compressed! Because the pixels are 3D, it mean stills and video can be used in VFX, Virtual Reality AND Augmented Reality applications as a GIANT BONUS for this MF Global Shutter Camera System!
The MF camera will be very reasonably priced for professional videographers/still photographers and the 3D-XYZ plastic/metal printers will be ONE-HALF to ONE-THIRD the price of comparable 300 mm by 300 mm by 300 mm and 750 mm by 750 mm by 750 mm Metal/Filament 3D printing systems! They are fully sealed units that are quiet for home/business in-office use AND they will COME WITH easy-to-use but pro-level CAD/CAM/FEA software that is very comparable feature-wise to CATIA! Branded Ti/StS/Al Metal Powder and ABS/PE/etc Plastic Filament can be ordered online for next day delivery if you want!
It's all coming a lot sooner than people think!
IT REALLY TAKES NICE LOOKING STILLS AND VIDEO !!!!
