Small Digital Movie Camera

The basic idea was to design the smallest and lightest movie camera with no compromising on movie quality or recording capability. The small film camera is an excellent alternative for filming in environments where it is not possible to bring a big heavy camera.

For maximum image quality the camera uses a RAW image format, i.e, image data that is not compressed.

Our task in this project was to solve memory management and memory storage, especially quick read out. The RAW format is a both complex and memory intensive image format that places great demands on storing very large amounts of data. At the same time the memory still takes up extremely little space in the very compact film camera.
