Watch making of FIREFLY here:
The camera, developed by the FLIR corporation, is called the Star SAFIRE III, and it’s the one behind all of the infrared shots of Tsarnaev in the boat that spread like wildfire all over the Internet
Here’s one of those pictures:

Over the last few years, IMAX has been quietly developing a smaller digital camera with amazing resolution. And while that would be great on its own…the new camera would also shoot in 3D! However, since no one had been talking about it recently, I figured IMAX was stuck trying to get the tech to work and it’d be years before we’d see it in action. I thought wrong. On the CinemaCon red carpet for Paramount’s presentation, Michael Bay told collider.com he’s going to be shooting the big showcase scenes in Transformers 4 with the new, smaller IMAX 3D digital camera!

These are not cinema projectors… they are actually intended for our ProAV markets.
With that said, they have similar light engines and optical characteristics as a cinema projector, but totally different electronics that are not compatible with cinema security protocols and movie playback equipment.
As a stretch, you may be able to use them in film post-production, but only for unencrypted content; perhaps for reviewing dailies and for DI processing.
“Christie is the only manufacturer providing full 4K (4096 x 2160) resolution at 60 Hz and the reliability and image clarity of 3-chip DLP® all in one package. Both projectors are a quantum leap forward in video image processing and a breakthrough in high frame rate and high resolution video projection,” said Mike Garrido, senior product manager, Business Products, Christie.

Filings with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office show the transfer of a number of patents from Kodak to Apple has begun, with the letter taking ownership of several patents covering aspects of digital photography, reports “AppleInsider” (http://tinyurl.com/c7dth6b)
The patents in question — 8,432,479, 8,432,472, 8,432,456, and 8,432,461 — cover measurement of range using a zoom camera, displaying and sharing digital images, and wireless sharing of digital images via a network. “Apple will likely put the patents to use further protecting from litigation its bestselling line of iOS devices, as well as its Mac computers,” notes “AppleInsider.”
In 2011 Kodak offered to sell 1,000 patents related to digital photography. The company had been losing money despite its efforts to convert from film to digital photography.
OmniVision Launches Smallest Full HD CameraChip™ Sensor for Mobile Devices
1/6-Inch OV2724 Enables 1080p HD Front-Facing Cameras For Next-Generation Smartphones, Tablets and Ultrabooks™
SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/– OmniVision Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OVTI), a leading developer of advanced digital imaging solutions, launched today its smallest full high-definition (FHD) CameraChip sensor designed for front-facing camera applications in smartphones, tablets and ultrabooks. The new OV2724 delivers high frame rate 1080p/60 HD video with best-in-class sensitivity and dynamic range, and can fit inside a 5 x 5 x 3.5 mm module, making the OV2724 an ideal camera solution for video chat and video conferencing applications on mobile devices.
“High-definition video chat and our latest video-in-video (ViV™) functionality have quickly become highly desired features in mobile devices. However, enabling these features and integrating the necessary hardware into ultra-slim, high-performance devices is a continuous challenge for manufacturers,” said Justin Kim , senior product marketing manager at OmniVision. “The OV2724 is uniquely positioned to address that challenge by offering smartphone and tablet manufacturers an easy-to-integrate front-facing camera solution that can meet both the performance requirement demanded by consumers, and the increasingly tight z-height constraint for next-generation mobile devices.”
Utilizing an advanced 1.34-micron OmniBSI-2™ pixel architecture, the OV2724 captures 1080p HD video at 60 frames per second (FPS) with enhanced high dynamic range and low-light performance. The sensor’s improved pixel performance ensures high-quality video recording even in the most difficult high- and low-light scenes. By using OmniVision’s proprietary imaging technology to reduce or eliminate common sources of image contamination, such as fixed pattern noise and smearing, the 1/6-inch OV2724 produces clean and fully stable color images.
The OV2724 features a dual-lane MIPI interface and is available in chip scale package (CSP) and reconstructed wafer (RW) formats. The sensor is currently sampling and is expected to enter mass production in the third quarter of calendar 2013.
