Listed below there are the earliest experiments of Crakers Film, never distributed to the market: the grotesque game of "Julia Dream", the fantastic short "Come al solito - as usual" and the very short "Collage " starring the nature.

Digital cinematography format

Comparison 720p / 1080i: Progressive scanning reduces the need to prevent flicker by anti-aliasing single high contrast horizontal lines. It is also easier to perform high-quality 50/60 Hz conversion and slow-motion replays with progressive video. In high-motion scenes, 720p has higher vertical resolution than 1080i (720 lines versus 540 lines), making it preferable for sporting events such as auto racing and basketball that move at a very fast pace on live television. The main advantage for 720p is to reduce the 3:2 artefact in transfer from 24fps film to 480i or 1080i 30fps 60Hz. The 576i and 1080i 25fps 50Hz modes do not have pull down artefacts as film frames are simply played at 25fps and the pitch corrected on audio by 24/25ths. Unlike 480i 29.97fps and 1080i 29.97fps, the 576i and 1080i 25fps 50Hz can be easily converted to progressive if the source was 24fps film. As a result while 720p is used for USA broadcast (1280x720p is same bandwidth approximately as 1920x1080i), 720p is not used in Europe. Since European TV is 576 rather than 480 lines visible, the 720p mode is too small an improvement. Thus all European HD broadcast is 1440x1080i or 1920x1080i (25fps, 50Hz) depending on bandwidth constraints.

4K resolution is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels. Several 4K resolutions exist in the fields of digital television and digital cinematography. In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives is the dominant 4K standard. The television industry has adopted ultra high definition television as its 4K standard. As of 2013, some UHDTV models are available to general consumers for under $1000. However, due to lack of available content, 4K television has yet to achieve mass market appeal. Using horizontal resolution to characterize the technology marks a switch from the previous generation, high definition television, which categorized media according to vertical resolution (1080i, 720p, 480p, etc.). The top-end regular HDTV format, 1080p, qualifies as 2K resolution, having a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels, with a vertical resolution of 1080 pixels.

LATEST: digital cameras Canon EOS C300


A ground-breaking professional cine camera, EOS C300 fuses Canon’s proven video technology and lens heritage with EOS creativity. Interchangeable EF lenses give unprecedented freedom to tell every story.

8.3MP SUPER 35MM CMOS SENSOR; FULL HD: An 8.3MP Super 35mm CMOS sensor, designed and manufactured by Canon specifically for video capture, provides 3ch RGB processing for Full HD recording. Canon’s sensor technology delivers superb high-resolution images with high sensitivity, low noise, reduced rolling shutter artefacts and low power consumption, along with typical large sensor benefits such as beautifully shallow depth of field.

INTERCHANGEABLE LENS (EF MOUNT): The EOS C300’s EF mount brings the optical heritage of Canon’s interchangeable EF lens system to a dedicated video production tool – expanding creative options through a huge range of affordable and unique lenses. 3 electronic built-in ND filters increase shooting versatility.

COMPACT, MODULAR, LIGHTWEIGHT: The EOS C300 is ultra-compact, with a basic recording set up that weighs just 1669g (without lens). Removable grip, handle and multi-angle control panel components ensure maximum manoeuvrability, whilst the robust, splash resistant body features magnesium alloy components for additional rigidity and toughness.

50MBPS MPEG-2 MXF TO CF CARD: Record broadcast-ready MPEG-2 MXF files at 50Mbps (4:2:2) to two CF memory cards – relay and simultaneous recording options are available. Industry-standard outputs include HD-SDI, along with Timecode, Genlock and Synch terminals for multi-camera shoots.

HIGH SENSITIVITY, LOW NOISE: The EOS C300 features enhanced sensitivity: low noise images can be captured at up to ISO 20000, allowing use in almost any shooting conditions.

CANON LOG GAMMA: Extensive image customisation includes built-in Canon Log Gamma, which delivers neutral image quality with wide dynamic range (800%) for maximum freedom in post-production. Adjust more than 90 image variables and store as Custom Picture profiles in-camera or on SD card.

24.00P FOR MOVIE PRODUCTION: PAL, NTSC, and 24.00p modes are included as standard, offering frame rates from 23.98p to 59.94i. Adjust slow and fast motion in 1fps steps for creative flexibility.

WI-FI REMOTE CONTROL: Wirelessly control camera settings such as ISO, focus, aperture and ND filters via a notebook, tablet or Smartphone, using a simple browser-based user interface. (Optional wireless adaptor required.)

SEAMLESS WORKFLOW INTEGRATION: Integrating seamlessly with existing workflows, EOS C300 movies are compatible with most widely-used professional NLE software packages.
