KineRAW-MINI is previous model of KineMINI 4K. Please find more information about new KineMINI 4K.
S35mm KineRAW-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI ™ with your existing Cineon ™ film log, HDTV or VFX worklows.
SLOW AND QUICK MOTION KineRAW-MINI 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-MINI features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. KineRAW-MINI 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-MINI handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style. The footages would be turned into Cineform RGB444 mob after KineStation transcoding.
OFFLINE CINEFORM RAW Offline output Cineform RAW Codec Option: MINI cannot record Cineform RAW online or in-camera, but you can choose to output Cineform RAW offline Option. With this option, when copy footages from KineMAG to workstation or lap-top using our dedicated software, at the same time the recorded CinemaDNG footages can be encoded automatically into Cineform RAW mov with audio embedded, with little additional time effort. Nearly all commercial editing tools and grading tools like Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Speedgrade, Resolve, support Cineform.
CINEMADNG CinemaDNG ™is frame-based, just like Film. CinemaDNG™ offers 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. CinemaDNG ™ is Adobe ™’s format for saving motion picture digital negatives the digital equivalent of motion picture color negative film (not necessarily the equal in all respects as that depends on the sensor used and how the recorded data is processed, just as the results of movie film depend on how it is processed).
FLEXIBLE MOUNT OPTIONS Two Native Mount options: EF mount and KineMOUNT. MINI with Native EF weighs less than KineMOUNT version, while KineMOUNT version (Interchangeable Lens Mount system) is more flexible for fast changing mount like changing a PL mount lens, such as EF mount with electronic contacts to tuning aperture, PL mount and Nikon F mount. FFD of KineMOUNT is very short, and used in KineRAW-S35 too.
S16mm MODE S16mm mode is designed to use the centre of image sensor which is 4K S35mm sensor in KineRAW-MINI 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.
LIGHT-WEIGHT AND COMPACT Small as 1/3 of KineRAW-S35, and Light as 1/2 of its big brother. With handgrip and its battery, it is very convenient for different environments you want. More light-weight, more compact consume less power, energy and errors, especially for one-man band. And there are two color options for camera body: Black and Titanium Grey.
KineRAW-MINI™ is a powerful and versatile tool for 35mm like Cinematography while still being self-contained and really portable. It’s a serious film-making tool with real Digital Cinema Camera features at an affordable price.

Sensor Framing Options
KineRAW-MINI’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-MINI 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-MINI features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. Sport Mode is designed to make KineRAW-MINI handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style.
Slow and Quick Motion
KineRAW-MINI 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.
Battery Handgrip with Full function
KineGrip provides not only power to KineRAW-MINI, but also provides full control. The battery inside of handgrip is changeable, and provides 90 minutes of powering KineRAWE-MINI. KineRAW-MINI can switch handgrip battery and external power like broadcast battery or DC IN, smoothly and hot-swap, like UPS. The dials and buttons on KineGrip can control Iris (if EF lens), ISO directly, and other camera parameters.
KineRAW-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI can take real 3D shots. Just one SYNC cable to connect two KineRAW-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI 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-MINI 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.
