TERRA 4K Cine Camera

TERRA 4K, the best entry-level cinema camera, 4K 100fps with 3200/800 Dual Native ISO, easy to be used like DSLR. Body weighs only 990g. You can record ProRes or compressed RAW as cDNG directly, to get a fast and smooth post workflow as well as to obtain more post space respectively. Though TERRA 4K as entry-level cine camera, it features high speed 4K CMOS image sensor with Dual Native ISO(3200/800): it captures low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environment easily. (TERRA 6K adopts S35 CMOS image sensor of KineMAX and is discontinued. It is TERRA 4K if TERRA mentioned in this context.)

Super Lightweight: One-man Job

TERRA 4K, weight of camera body is only 990g; its size is only half or third of other MINI cinema camera. Due to its small form factor close to DSLR, TERRA works well with most of Gimbals, and also lowers the requirements on accessories: so lightweight for handheld operation and for one-man job. With new SideGrip and KineMON-5U Ultra-Bright Monitor, TERRA is ready for shooting. TERRA can work up to 100min with its lightweight GripBAT 45Wh (compatible with BP-U30).

High Speed+Dual Native ISO

TERRA 4K employs a whole-new, high speed &low noise CMOS image sensor featuring with Dual Native ISO: 3200/800. It captures low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environment easily. The native frame rate of 4k CMOS image sensor at open gate (3:2 4096×2700) is up to 100fps! So the TERRA 4K can record 4K wide up to 160fps, 3K wide up to 200fps and 2K wide up to 320fps. At the same time, its rolling effect is very low due to the high native frame rate, even running at regular fps, and the latitude reaches to main standard for main-stream camera: more than 13 stops. With advanced process, higher ISO and lower noise, TERRA 4K is no need to lower ISO, very convenient and powerful.

Super-Fast Post Workflow: ProRes or cDNG

TERRA 4K can record up to 4K even 6K ProRes 422HQ directly to get a super-fast workflow with very high quality footages: ProRes 422HQ is much better than codecs based on H264, and compatible with all post-workflow softwares. It can also record compressed RAW as cDNG internaly: cDNG returns again in the form of an ajustable compression ratio. Current firmware supports three different compression ratios, 3:1 and 5:1 respectively and both of them can get super image quality and large post-adjustment space. Davinci Resolve supports cDNG natively so that it can make film editing and color modulation internaly.

Additionally, in April, 2020, TERRA 4K will now see ProRes4444 and ProRes4444XQ encoding added to its arsenal of high end cinema camera features! All TERRA 4K cameras shipped (it was released in 2017) will be able to add ProRes4444/ProRes4444XQ via free firmware update, no hardware changes are required.

Firmware is the soul of camera. The KineOS6.0 on camera keeps simple as previous version and also has many features for a professional cinema camera. It is responsive, clean and easy to access:

Advanced Waveform

Waveform in-camera: you don’t need to buy monitor with waveform. Using waveform, cameraman can judge exposure quickly and accurately. The difference between Kine camera and other camera is that Kine camera has two ways to examine the exposure: just RAW (w/ KineLOG) data or RAW(w/ KineLOG) + LUT data. RAW data is what sensor sees directly; and RAW+LUT data is more like human eyes, in waveform.

ZOOM and Focusing

Zoom to help focusing: full, 100%, 200%, 800%. Just press the Zoom button to toggle zoom ratio quickly. Zoom to 800% provides an interesting focusing signal: aliasing clear means focusing right.


Accurate Automatic WB

Accurate Automatic WB, you can deal with complicated lighting environment easily. Just use grey card or white card before lens, to set the WB accurately instantly. MAVO LF/MAVO would save the parameter into camera for later usage. Besides, MAVO LF/MAVO has two options for white-balance list: simple list and complete list. The complete list contains a long list for different lighting and different WB value (step is 50K) . For most cases, an appropriate WB setting you could find to match your condition.

Tint/cc

For white balance, the new firmware brings tint tuning/color correction function besides the color temp (Blue and Yellow), which means photographer could adjust Green and Magenta based on the live-view image, for more accurate control over the color of the clip recorded.


Accurate and custom sensor fps

You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest (0.2fps at current firmware) and highest fps (different for different resolution and different framing), the accuracy is 0.001fps, while recording fps is set by project fps in the camera. Under full-frame image, you can casually record to 0.2~75fps @6K Wide and under S35 crop image, you can casually record to 0.2~100fps @4K Wide, so that you are free to create more amazing videos with different fps.

Presets for Parameters

In-Camera Presets are a set of parameters for recording: Resolution, FPS, Record format, Shutter speed, etc; and there are EIGHT in-camera presets, and it provides quick switch for these presets: BACK/VIEW button to pop up the Preset Shortcut list.


Anamorphic Lens

If you have anamorphic lens and want to give super wide effect, kine camera fulfills the dream. It supports 4K 4:3 and 6:5 anamorphic frame size, and de-squeeze images into normal images in liveview and playback, just setting the display ratio according to your anamorphic ratio. For example, you will get 8K image effect if you use 2:1 anamorphic lens in 4K 4:3 mode; All you have to do is set the anamorphic ratio in configure menu.

Framing Ratio: 2.39:1

Kine camera supports 2.39:1 liveview and recording natively, besides 16:9 or 2:1 framing ratio. 2.39:1 is DCI scope standard, which is often used in short film and cinema projection.


Smart FAN Control

Kine camera has in-camera fan to cool the camera itself and make camera work well in stable condition. Fan generates noise. You can choose Record Stop in Fan setting to make FAN stop works temporarily: Fan works when live view; Stops when recording begins so that it is totally quiet when recording. It is very important in quiet environment, and sensitive to any audible noise. Strongly Recommend fan running when hot weather.

Upgrade Firmware by USB

Kine camera functions more than just a data table by updating firmware. Updating firmware is easy and quick: download firmware, copy it into USB flash thumb, insert to USB port, press upgrade in the menu. The update job is done after 15 mins.


Real 3D Shots

Kine camera can take real 3D shots. Just one SYNC cable to connect two Kine camera SYNC port, set up Master and Slave instantly. 3D SYNC means: Scan sync, frame sync and time code sync, less than 5us of mismatch! For a multi-camera sync system (more than two), all Kine cameras need to be equipped with KineBACK-W. Besides, you should purchase a KineSYNC device and a few SYNC cords: one KineSYNC device can sync up to eight Kine cameras (one master camera and seven slave cameras).

Iris-Control on EF Lens

Kine camera supports majority of lenses with iris-control as soon as you buy camera with EF mounting adapter. Kine camera displays Iris number and tune it directly. Also you can just disable electronic active EF mounting adapter so that protects it from all-metal lens backend. Check the compatible lens white list.
