The goal of the community driven apertus° project is to create powerful, free (in terms of liberty), and open cinema tools for filmmakers. The idea of building an open cinema camera was born in 2006 and found many followers before apertus was born.
The EHSM presentation focused on the Axiom Alpha proof-of-concept prototype. Developers also presented plans for the second incarnation, the Axiom Beta. That version is targeted at developers and early adopters, with a focus on community input and hardware flexibility.
