Magic Lantern Will Develop for Successfully Crowdfunded Apertus Axiom 4K Camera

[T]he [Apertus] project will be receiving the support of the Magic Lantern team. This is huge news, as they have done some amazing work with Canon cameras (and will continue to work on them), and they will likely be able to do far more with Axiom as they’ll have full access to all of the source code. A1ex from ML has said that depending on how the Super 35mm 4K sensor is sampled, it may be capable of a whopping 800fps in 1080p mode, which would be incredible (though this wouldn’t necessarily be something available in the first iteration of the camera as it’s limited by its outputs at the moment). – Joe Marine,No Film School

Apertus Axiom Beta: World’s First 4K Open Source Cinema Camera is Now Crowdfunding

On their campaign page, you can essentially purchase the camera for the cost of everything but the sensor. This includes all of the miscellaneous components and the cost of assembly etc. Depending on which sensor you choose for the camera (either s35 or 4/3), that price is about $450 and $390 respectively. Then comes the more expensive part of the equation, the sensor. Once the campaign finishes, Apertus is going to buy the sensors in bulk and then sell them to you at cost. […] Effectively, once you’ve paid for everything, the s35 model of the Axiom Beta will set you back about $3500, whereas the 4/3 camera will land in the $2900 range. – Robert Hardy,No Film School
