Powerful Image Process Platform

The image process platform outputs 75fps at 6K Wide and 160fps at 4K Wide. Both MAVO and MAVO LF have very good slow-mo ability. MAVO LF works up to 75fps at 6K Wide and 150fps at 4K Wide. MAVO works up to 100fps at 4K Wide. Strong slow-mo ability brings great convenience to creative video shooting like TVC, etc.

Also, MAVO LF/MAVO provides three kinds of intermediate codecs suitable for editing and color grading to simplify the workflow and provide the maximum room for post-processing. For ProRes, it records Apple ProRes format up to ProRes4444/4444XQ. At the same time, all the resolutions and frames rates support ProRes record. Besides, the compressed CinemaDNG format is available, so that the RAW footage can be directly imported, edited and graded in DaVinci Resolve, simplifying the RAW workflow greatly. To work with Davinci Resolve, the compressed cinemaDNG(cDNG) ratio can be set to 3:1 or 5:1 with KineLOG3 built-in, to get high image quality and smooth post workflow.

Comparisons between MAVO LF and MAVO


MAVO LF 

Large Format MAVO LF is equipped with a full-frame CMOS image sensor, effective area as 36x24mm, resolution up to 6K: 6016×3984. Compared to the S35 format sensor, the CMOS imaging sensor area is 2.25 times; the pixel pitch is 50% bigger; the SNR is better, then the picture is cleaner. In addition, large format offers a wider perspective, shallower depth of field and more immersive presence. You can use not only cinema lenses designed for large format like MAVO Prime, CP3, Cooke S7i, Arri Signature Prime and Zeiss Signature Prime, but also a large number of existing full-frame still camera lenses.

MAVO 

S35 MAVO employs S35 CMOS imaging sensor with 3:2 aspect ratio. The maximum effective area of imaging area is 24x16mm, while maximum recordable resolution is up to 6016×3984, 24 Millions pixels. The size of imaging sensor perfectly matches traditional cinema S35 lenses, or APS-C and full-frame lenses with universal KineMOUNT simultaneouly.

Dual Native ISO 5120/800 MAVO LF’s whole-new full frame CMOS imaging sensor, not only brings much larger pixel size, but also has dual native ISO: 5120 and 800. The feature of dual native ISO differentiates MAVO LF from other/traditional cinema cameras. The noise performance of the big guy is even much better than TERRA 4K, so you can trust its native 5120 ISO when low-light even no-light cases. It helps indie filmmakers get the jobs done much more easily and economically.

ISO The new S35 CMOS sensor benefits from advanced CMOS imaging sensor process: lowering the noise of sampling images greatly, half of TERRA 6K noise roughly, so that achieves much higher sensitivity. Although base ISO is 800, the noise level is still very low with 1600, 2560 and 3200 ISO, even higher ISO up to 5120. If the 4K or 2K resolution is output by oversampling, the ISO could work up to higher and image output is still very crispy and clean.

6K 75fps! MAVO LF features more slow-mo than regular MAVO 6K, also lower “jello effect”. It wipes away that the nightmare of full frame CMOS sensor’ strong jello effect. 5K wide up to 80fps, 4K wide up to 100fps at S35 image format. For more cropping, 3K wide gets 150fps and 2K wide gets 200fps. The image quality of all these slow-mo is same with regular frame rate. And it encodes 6K 30fps to ProRes4444, even 4K HD 48fps to ProRes4444XQ.

6K 66fps! The frame rate is up to 66fps at S35 6K Wide, up to 100fps at M43 4K Wide and up to 192fps at 2K Wide. These high-speed images are exactly same with the normal frame rate. In addition, it has in-camera over-sampling, so that under the S35 format, a super high quality 4K images can be recorded up to ProRes4444XQ.

Full Frame Anamorphic and S35 Anamorphic! MAVO LF’s full frame CMOS sensor is like a big canvas which make many anamorphic shootings possible. For full frame anamorphic: no matter 4:3 mode 5376×3984 or 6:5 4864×3984(the height of active area is 24mm), the desqueezed image coming from MAVO LF will be a 65mm format with FF anamorphic lenses mounted. For S35 anamorphic: both 4:3 4096×3072 and 1:1 3072×3072 (the height of active area is 18.3mm) can work up to 80fps.

S35 Anamorphic MAVO might be the best S35 cinema camera for anamorphic shooting with super image quality, two S35 anamorphic modes: 4:3 mode 5.3K or 6:5 mode 4.9K (at this time, height of CMOS image sensor is 16mm). No matter the mainstream S35 A2x lenses, or 1.33x lenses, it is easy to get super cinematic images.

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.
