S35mm KineRAW-S35 is a Super35mm sized CMOS sensor camera with outstanding low light performance for HD use as well as for making DCP for projection in modern digital movie theatres where signal to noise ratio under difficult lighting conditions is very important. In the case of shooting feature motion pictures and commercials with ample lighting, the camera can be used as a normal movie camera would be for the cinematographer take advantage of the camera’s wide exposure latitude and ISO range from to get textures from silky fine gain to gritty as needed.
KINERAW = RAW + LOOK What the KineRAW-S35 records are 12bits RAW image data plus it makes a 3D-LUT to match the “look” used for monitoring when shooting. The wonder of KineRAW-S35 is that you can always re-process any shot using a different grade by way of just changing the 3D-LUT used for processing. Loading the 3D-LUT made by the camera for color matching, such as when using in camera ‘looks’ KineLOG/KineColor/Kine709, you can quickly intergrate footage from the KineRAW-S35 ™ with your existing Cineon ™ film log, HDTV or VFX worklows.
SLOW AND QUICK MOTION KineRAW-S35 is capable of slow and quick motion capture (overcrank and undercrank). As of overcrank/slow-mo, it supports high fps up to 100fps @ 720p when in S35 framing mode; and fps up to 60fps @2K and 1080p when in S16 crop framing mode. As of undercrank/quick-mo, the lowest fps is down to 6fps under current firmware. You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest and highest fps, the accuracy is 0.001fps, while recording fps is set by project fps in the camera. It provides much more possibilities over fixed fps like 24, 25, 30fps.
SPORT MODE KineRAW-S35 features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. KineRAW-S35 employs state-of-art CMOS sensor, which is rolling shutter type, then suffers some rolling effect. Sport Mode is designed to alleviate the rolling greatly, and make KineRAW-S35 handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style. The footages would be turned into Cineform RGB444 mob after KineStation transcoding.
CINEFORM RAW The KineRAW-S35 can record the Cineform ™ as compressed raw using very high quality wavelet compression: visually lossless, and making work-flow more efficient. The famous films like Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire were acquired by CineForm RAW compression for most images, and also the 127 hours. Cineform codec is cross-platform: run on both MAC and Windows smoothly and efficiently. Nearly all commercial editing tools and grading tools like Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Speedgrade, Resolve, Scratch etc. support Cineform very well.
CINEMADNG CinemaDNG ™ recording gives you maximum image quality and license free archive of your shots as “Digital Negative” that can be processed any way you like and be archived in an “open file format” that can be accessed and supported for all time to come, no matter what happens. As was mentioned the KineRAW-S35 ™ can record CinemaDNG ™ and Cineform ™ at the same time, so you can archive the CinemaDNG ™ frames should they be needed later, and use the Cineform ™ for faster work-flow now.
QUICK INTERCHANGEABLE LENS MOUNT KineRAW-S35 uses Short FFD KineMount (Sub PL mount) with mount adapters to support various lens mounts, including standard PL mount, Canon EF mount (Active, Iris-controlled) and Nikon F mount, even OCT-19, B4 mount. If you have a 35mm move camera now you can ask us about having custom adapters made in addition to our stock adapters, and protect your investment in great glass. For those on a budget, other lenses made for DSLR can give good HD or DCP results when used near their prime stop.
S16mm MODE S16mm mode is designed to use the centre of image sensor which is 4K S35mm sensor in KineRAW-S35 to match S16mm frame size. Since it is 4K S35mm sensor, it turns into 2K when cropped in S16mm mode. In this S16mm mode, you can use S16mm PL cine lens, even the broadcast B4 mount lens, to shoot in 2K RAW image, with less rolling effect, and overcrank to 60fps@2K RAW.
SDI & HD DIGITAL PORTS KineRAW-S35 outputs monitoring signal as 1080p/720p through two SDI and One HD digital port, so that you can use compatible third-party EVF like Cineroid EVF/ZacutoEVF, small field monitor like SmallHD monitors and broadcast monitor with SDI input like Zunzheng Monitor. For focusing, the camera’s zoom function can be Full/100%/200%, and even 800% to make focusing job easier. The in-camera waveform monitor and zebra can monitor the RAW signal or “look” LUT so that it helps you better exposure and avoid over-exposure.
DOUBLE RECORD MODE KineRAW-S35 provides much safer recording mode as Double Record Mode in new firmware, since KineRAW-S35 has two 2.5′ SSD slots. KineRAW-S35 can record same footage into two separate SSDs, then you can get two copies of footage naturally when shooting. Obviously, it is very important and convenient for shooting on critical scenes like film, TV and talk.
KineRAW-S35 is a great tool for 35mm like Cinematography while still being self-contained and portable. Its option for using real 35mm PL mount movie camera lenses or Other DSLR lens gives you the DOF that says “Cinema” in your HD and DCP productions. The value and flexibility you get from the KineRAW-S35 lets you put more of your production budget into what goes in front of the camera. It’s a serious film-making tool with real Digital Cinema Camera features at a price within reach.

Sensor Framing Options
KineRAW-S35′s native frame is 4K S35mm which can be cropped into 2K S16mm in one second, and you get many options on framing: choose 2K S35mm (in-camera binned) image output and also 2K S16mm image output (crop mode). For 2K S35mm frame, DSLR lens and PL cine lens are used; for 2K S16mm frame, B4 mount lens and even S16mm cine PL mount lens are reborn to work for you. KineMOUNT to B4 and PL mounting adapters built in steel handle heavy PL lens and B4 mounting lens easily. At same time, it powers the zoom servo motor.
KineRAW-S35 features two great RAW options: Cineform RAW and CinemaDNG, choose one or both based on your post-workflow. From the frontend, there is no difference, but the speed of consuming SSD in CinemaDNG is much faster than Cineform.
Accurate Automatic WB
KineRAW provides accurate Automatic WB, so that you can deal with complicated lighting environment easily. Just use grey card or white card before lens, to set the WB accurately instantly. KineRAW would save the parameter into camera for later usage. Besides, KineRAW 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.
KineRAW-S35 features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. Sport Mode is designed to make KineRAW-S35 handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style.
Slow and Quick Motion
KineRAW-S35 is capable of slow and quick motion capture (overcrank and undercrank). As of overcrank/slow-mo, it supports high fps up to 100fps @ 720p when in S35 framing mode; and fps up to 60fps @2K and 1080p when in S16 crop framing mode. As of undercrank/quick-mo, the lowest fps is down to 6fps under current firmware. You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest and highest fps, the accuracy is 0.001fps, while recording fps is set by project fps in the camera. It provides much more possibilities over fixed fps like 24, 25, 30fps.
EI and ISO
EI/ISO is a setting on capture abilit of Image Sensor. KineRAW™ can config in three ways: EI to match film camera setting; ISO to match general camera setting, even Advanced mode to set highlight level and ISO at the same time.
Double Record Mode
KineRAW-S35 provides much safer recording mode as Double Record Mode in new firmware, since KineRAW-S35 has two 2.5′ SSD slots. KineRAW-S35 can record same footage into two separate SSDs, then you can get two copies of footage naturally when shooting. Obviously, it is very important and convenient for shooting on critical scenes like film, TV and talk.
KineRAW-S35 can playback/delete clips recorded in SSD quickly in smart way. You can check the waveform, histogram and Zoom focusing when playback, like you do in live view.
KineRAW-S35 has waveform in-camera: you don’t need to buy monitor with waveform. Using waveform, cameraman can judge exposure quickly and accurately. The difference between KineRAW and other camera is that KineRAW has two ways to examine the exposure: just RAW data or RAW+LUT data. RAW data is what sensor sees directly; and RAW+LUT data is more like human eyes, in waveform and histogram.
Real 3D Shots
KineRAW-S35 can take real 3D shots. Just one SYNC cable to connect two KineRAW-S35 SYNC port, set up Master and Slave instantly. 3D SYNC means: Scan sync, frame sync and time code sync, less than 5uS of mismatch!
Histogram with Tick Mark
KineRAW-S35 integrate not only histogrm, but also special tick mark. The tick mark has two ticks: one is grey, the other is white. That means 18% grey and 90% white respectively. The exposure level would lie on the grey or white tick if you use 18% grey card or 90% white card before camera, and set ISO, Iris and shutter time accurately, based on lightmeter. Like waveform, histogram also shows RAW or RAW+LUT data automatically.
KineRAW-S35 provides 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.
Smart FAN Control
KineRAW-S35 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.
Framing Ratio: 2.39:1
KineRAW supports 2.39:1 liveview and recording natively, besides 2K and 1080p resolution. 2.39:1 is DCI flat standard, which is often used in short film and cinema projection.
If you have anamorphic lens and want to give super wide effect, KineRAW camera can fullfil the dream. KineRAW-S35 supports anamorphic lens in live view and playback, just setting the display ratio according to your anamorphic ratio. For example, you will get 3K: 1K image effect if you use 1.5:1 anamorphic lens in 2K shots. All you have to do is set the anamorphic ratio in configure menu.
Upgrade Firmware in One Minutes
KineRAW functions more than just a data table, by updating firmware. Updating firmware is easy and quick: less one minute, the update job is done.
Iris-Control on EF Lens
KineRAW-S35 supports majority of lens with iris-control as soon as you buy active EF mounting adapter. KineRAW 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.
