I think we all followed the progress of the Ikonoskop A-Cam dll camera, but sadly it seems not enough followed that up with handing over the folding stuff. So Ikonoskop has been forced to announce they have temporarily halted production of the A-Cam dll camera.
Can’t help but think of what if’s, Long haired Hipsters, ignored crocodile attacks, and that nag prancing in the corner; everyone’s stupid fail safe Kickstarter. Oh damn it now other DNG RAW cameras have the spotlight.
Ikonoskop had been dropping the price of the A-Cam dll Camera for months. Bugger didn’t help.
Here is the short message issued by Ikonoskop:
Ikonoskop has temporarily stopped the production of the A-Cam dll cameras due to a strained financial situation. We are working hard to find a solution to this and hope to start up production as soon as possible.
Here is the Ikonoskop philosophy:
We believe that a camera should be as simple to use as possible without compromising on the quality. To us this means that it should be small, light and ergonomic and have as few buttons and menus as possible, yet still capture the best images.
This is why we created the A-Cam dll camera, designed to be a professional digital 16mm film camera. To shoot with it you only need to set the frame rate, shutter angle, gain, aperture and the focus, that’s it.
The A-Cam dll records uncompressed RAW files in 1080p in the open format CinemaDNG. The camera has CCD sensor with a global shutter, onboard electronic viewfinder, battery and memorycard. The camera takes 16mm and 35mm PL lenses, C-mount lenses and still lenses via it’s IMS mount.

A lot of people will always have Ikonoskop to thank for their DNG workflow.
Let’s not say goodbye to the Ikonoskop A-Cam dll camera but rather au revoir…
