Dalsa’s dream fades to black

The Canadian company Dalsa is getting out of the business of making digital cameras for cinematographers. “The Origin camera, launched in 2004, won many accolades but may have been ahead of its time, as it was never used to film the entirety of a major studio’s feature-length film,” writes Matt Walcoff in The Record, adding that the Origin “was used to film advertisements and short films, as well as a skydiving scene in the James Bond movie Quantum of Solace.

If a letter of intent turns into a final agreement, it will instead license its camera technology to German camera maker Arnold & Richter Cine Technik GmbH (ARRI), which will use the technology in its own products.
