『Fragment 8 Retro Camera』とは
A toy camera inspired by a vintage handheld super 8mm film camera.
Although the shooting method is digital, the nostalgic design is reproduced.
With 720p HD resolution with 1/3 inch CMOS of F2.0
It is a memory camera of today that can record the images taken on the SD card!
The dimensions are 4.3 “x 3.5” x 1.6 “
One-handed size and convenient to carry!
Equipped with a rechargeable battery, built-in filter lens storage, built-in handle, and tripod mount!
In addition, it is an all-in-one set on the main body, so it is convenient to carry and you do not have to worry about losing it!
① Up to 120 seconds of video recording is possible!
-8mm film is not included, the video will be recorded on the SD card! The maximum length of each recorded video is 120 seconds.
(File size is 50MB for 2-minute video (MP4), 4MB for 4-second GIF)
Another point is that the shooting is done by following the 8mm camera and looking through the viewfinder instead of the monitor!
② 9FPS / 24FPS can be switched
-Usually, 8mm film is 16fps (frames / second: meaning that 16 pictures make up a 1-second movie), whereas
fragment8 can be switched between 9fps (frames / second: meaning that 9 pictures make up a 1-second video) or 24fps.
You can easily switch with the knob on the side of the main unit!
Today’s smartphone video recording is shooting smooth images at 30 fps and 60 fps.
Since 9fps is a very crisp and slimy image, you can shoot an 8mm-like image that brings out a Showa-like nostalgia!
③ Switching between GIF / MOVIE
-“FRAGMENT 8” allows you to easily shoot gif animations that play in an endless loop!
Basically, if you want to shoot a GIF animation, you have to cut out the video using an application etc. and edit it.
If you use this “FRAGMENT 8 Body”, it is highly recommended for beginners who can convert it to GIF animation just by shooting!
④ Various lenses (filters)
-A rotary lens plate can be attached to the lens part, and by switching the lens
“Radial filter, cross screen filter, kaleidoscope filter”You can enjoy shooting effects such as.
