3D printed CINEMA CAMERA
Taking apart a BMCC 2.5k!
It was a crazy idea that was inspired by the huge wave of filmmakers who loved the look of the BMCC 2.5k but hated the form factor. After building up the courage I took it all apart and there was no turning back.
Here are the steps that outline what I did along with some helpful links to get you started.
3D design made from tradework by this awesome guy, Waylan @ 4DRDD.
Open it up!
Make sure you're in a clean environment and on a wood table or some area with little to no static electricity. Basically, don't do this on your home carpet!
I know this isn't the cleanest table. I'll clean it later, promise.
Flex Cables & Bridges & Wires
Here are the flex cables you'll need to get:
I recommend getting it from Adafruit, but any of the top picks should do.
- 1 x 40 Pin flex cable.
- 2 x 8 Pin flex cable.
- 2 x 40-Pin FPC Extender Board.
This one comes with a flex cable already so, bonus! The reason you need two is because the second 40-pin board you can use for the two 8 pin "menu" & "touch"
High Speed Communication Cable
I'll let you fingure out how to get this cable.
Here is the part number:
Design it up!
The design is up to you, I have a few basic measurements but you'll need to make more for sure.
Unfortunetly at the moment I only have the Design files saved in a program called Spaceclaim.
That makes it hard for anyone to use them so I'll do my best to get these converted to a better file format soon.
As promised here is my design.
The design is broken up into 4 parts:
- The SSD mount
-The design that mounts the main PCB to the main body.
- The LCD mount
-The design that mounts the LCD/Menu to the main body.
- The Len Mount
-The design that mounts the Len front part to the main body.
- The Main Body
-The design that all other parts mount on to.
- The V-ursa Mini 3D design
