Dream Chip launches AtomOne mini Zoom camera

Dream Chip has released the AtomOne Mini Zoom camera, a miniature camera with Zoom functionality.

The camera has dimensions of 60x80mm and a weight of 267g, the camera works on a rolling shutter basis with a 1/2.5-in sensor, allowing for resolution of up to 1080p60. 

The Zoom functionality has been designed to facilitate more effective shot reframing – making the camera even more effective for deployment in unusual and creative locations. The base aperture stands at F1.6 – 2.9mm, providing for a wide angle 130° shot, and allows for the frame to be reduced to a 66° angle shot at 9mm. With such a miniature size, the camera can be added to an extensive range of locations without being obtrusive or interfering in the action; for instance, on race car bumpers and dashboards, behind goals, on nets, or right on the edge of action locations. 

The Zoom reframe ability allows for a focus on individual action components, facial reactions or emotive details. Indeed, production teams are able to maintain full creative control over all elements of the shot, as the AtomOne Mini Zoom maintains full iris control on a remote basis and can be colour matched with other cameras in the production setup using multi matrix colour support.

The decision to add a zoom functionality product to the AtomOne range is a result of ongoing innovation within Dream Chip and close consultation with existing customers. 

The AtomOne mini Zoom is also notable for its camera housing, which not only uses materials selected specifically to give a robust structure and sleek look, but also moves all points of connection within the housing to reduce the risk of connection fatigue or failure. This is particularly important due to the fact that the miniature size of the camera means that it is often deployed in challenging conditions where there is a high risk of impact or vibration. 

In additional to the Zoom function, Dream Chip have partnered with Bradley Remote in order to add the potential for pan-tilt functionality, turning the AtomOne mini Zoom into one of the smallest PTZ cameras on the market.

The AtomOne mini Zoom is suitable for discrete AV recording in commercial, entertainment, religious and educational settings.
