You can configure your KineMINI based on your current Lens, Accessories, monitors and Budget, because KineMINI adapts general display ports, wide range input voltage, and mounting options.

1. Color and Mount Options Check Available Mounting adapters


For the color of camera body, you could choose Black or Titanium Grey. Attention, The exterior color of mount  is black or steel anyway.

For the choice of mount, it depends on your lens resources and consideration of future usage.

  1. Body with Native Active EF mount: support iris-control for majority of EF lens.  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. It is an economical choice if your all lens are EF lens. Check the compatible lens white list
  2. Body with KineMOUNT: can be regarded as omni-mount system. If you have EF lens, and PL mount lens, or may rent PL mount lens in future, your best choice is to buy body of KineMOUNT. KineRAW-MINI with PL mount may be most economical PL cinema camera so far.

As long as you choose KineMOUNT camera body, you could get max freedom for lens choice: you may be able to use all kinds of lens for S35mm:

  1. If you use Canon EF lens, need to buy Active EF mounting adapter (Active K2EF);
  2. If you use Nikon len, need to buy Nikon mounting adapter (K2F);
  3. If you use PL cine lens, need to buy PL mounting adapter (K2PL);
  4. If you use B4 mount lens, need to buy B4 mounting adapter (K2B4);
  5. If you have OCT-19 lens, need to buy OCT-19 mounting adapter (K2OCT19).

Every mounting adapter or mount from Kinefinity is all lock-type mount, like cinema PL mounting lock way. It provides much better stability; fits very well in professional way when video shots using follow-focus gear.


2. In-camera Options Check In-camera Options


In-camera options, means they are built-in before shipment. You need to return camera body to Kinefinity for later purchase. It may take 3~5 working days for it.

  1. 4K Recording Option: KineMINI Can record uncompressed 4K RAW CinemaDNG and compressed lossless DNG too. You can use the DNG directly, or employ free KineStation to transcode DNG into 4K Cineform RAW mov, RGB444 mov, 4K ProRes422HQ mov. It does not need to return Camera back to factory to upgrade the option so that you can purchase it and upgrade it after you bought camera.
  2. HiSpeed Option: is a special mode for sensor capturing high speed objects. Its codec is same with sport mode as compressed lossless RAW sequence named as KNG by Kinefinity. It can capture 1080p slow motion up to 100fps, and no recording time limit till your KineMAG full.
  3. 3G SDI Monitoring Option: supports SDI monitoring output for broadcasting monitors, the resolution is same as HD display output as 1080p or 720p.
  4. 3D SYNC Option: KineMINI can take real 3D shots. Just one SYNC cable to connect two KineMINI SYNC port, set up Master and Slave instantly. 3D SYNC means: Scan sync, frame sync and time code sync, less than 5uS of mismatch!
  5. WIFI Control Option: Control camera by wifi control app (KineRemote) on iPad now. Download App directly from Apple App Store.
