What will EFS-1 cost?
Silicon Film plans to price
the EFS-1 including (e)film™, (e)port™,
When will EFS-1 be available?
Where can I buy Silicon Film products?
The EFS-1 will initially be available directly from Silicon Film's website, (www.siliconfilm.com).
What are the significant features of EFS-1 ?
As the world's only Electronic Film System, EFS-1 is designed to:
What type of file formats?
(e)film™ images are stored in a raw image format for best possible quality. Host software included with EFS-1 allows the user to choose the file format (e.g. JPEG, BMP and TIFF) and view/store images as either compressed or uncompressed (raw) files for the highest image quality, flexibility and control.
What is the file size of each image?
Raw images are less than two megabyte data files at download and initial viewing. Using the host application software, you can save your images in a variety of formats including JPG which are less than one megabyte each. Format and compression selected by the user in the host computer will impact the file size.
What is the resolution?
1280 x 1024 pixels, captured at 36-bit color depth.
What is the ISO rating for EFS-1?
Initially, EFS-1 will have an ISO rating of approximately 100. Increased sensitivity will be available in future products.
Which camera systems work with EFS-1?
Because SLR cameras differ
in internal dimensions, EFS-1 is designed for the following higher-end
These prosumer cameras were selected based on the profiles of potential customers from our Website Guestbook and their compatibility with our system design. A broader range of cameras will be addressed with future products.
What is the technology driving EFS-1?
Silicon Film has designed EFS-1 with patented imaging technology using a high-resolution CMOS image sensor (1280 x 1024 pixels) in a compact, self-contained, battery-powered electronic film system that digitally captures and stores images.
Complimentary-Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) was selected for its distinct advantages of higher resolution at more affordable cost, and low power consumption for longer battery life in remote operation. This offers maximum performance and value for the field photographer. "More info about CMOS".
What type of on-board memory is used with EFS-1?
Non-Volatile Flash Memory.
Field of View
What is the sensor's actual physical size and capture area?
As a rule, when a digital image sensor is adapted to a film camera, the image that the sensor captures is physically smaller than the area that you see in the viewfinder. The sensor's Field of View (FOV) encompasses only the center portion of the viewfinder image. "More info on Field of View".
Will EFS-1 be compatible with PC and Mac computers?
What software is provided?
EFS-1 includes TWAIN-compliant software for convenient image management, including image viewing, editing and storage.
How do you connect EFS-1 to the PC or MAC?
The (e)port™ carrier includes a convenient PC Card (PCMCIA) Type II connector, as well as a USB connector for both PC and MAC.
