There are several research and educational projects that use Elphel cameras. Some are already active, others just starting or only in planning stage. We believe that scientific research is the application area where the open nature of our products is the most beneficial. The shortage of the powerful and at the same time open and flexible hardware was that "itch" that led me to start Elphel.
This page is started to provide resources to those who already uses or plans to use Elphel cameras. This is wiki, so please feel free to add you project description/link below.--Andrey.filippov 14:59, 29 April 2007 (CDT)
If you want to apply for sponsored hardware please add your project with a short (1 sentence) description below.
The Red Forest project aims at shooting a short film using original soundtrack and original screenplay. The intention is to shoot using the standards of digital cinema of at least 2k resolution (but hopefully CIMAX) and RAW recording. To get there, we aim to shoot it with Elphel, use only free software and document on the process.
This page list the projects that were qualified to get free of charge hardware from Elphel.
