Video lust at last as Chinon unveils Bellami HD

Posted on by Mike Evans

I am not much interested in creating videos and prefer still photography. That red button on my Leica M has never been pressed in anger. So I have paid very little attention to developments in the dedicated video camera world until I saw this, the Chinon Bellami HD1.

The styling is fantastic, just like an old mechanical film camera, and the device promises to take a wide range of old and new lenses with different mounts. It could be a case of style over substance but I would love to try one. Could the Chinon be the tipping point that takes me into the world of video?
