MAVO LF will start to ship at Oct 2018. The preorder payment is just $149 as down payment, not the price of camera. The payment is refundable. MAVO LF are based on advanced image process platform, advanced color processing architecture and whole new CMOS image sensors to achieve super low-noise, high dynamic range. It brings stunning details and organic images. MAVO LF with large-format CMOS sensor provides cleaner images, wider viewing angles, shallower depth of field, and more immersive presence for cinematographers.


Large Format MAVO LF employs a full-frame CMOS image sensor, effective area as 36x24mm, resolution is over 6K: 6016×4016. Compared to the S35 format sensor, the large format CMOS sensor is 2.25 times larger, the exposure area is bigger, the single pixel pitch is larger, 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, but also a large number of existing full-frame still camera lenses.


Dual Native ISO 5120/800 MAVO LF’s whole-new full frame CMOS imaging sensor, not only brings much larger pixel size, but also have dual native ISO: 5120 and 800. The noise performance of the big guy much better than TERRA 4K. You can trust on its native 5120 ISO when low-light even no-light cases. It helps indie filmmakers get the jobs done much easier and economically.


6K Wide 75fps!MAVO LF features more slow-mo than regular MAVO, 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 can saves 6K 30fps to ProRes4444, even 4K HD 48fps 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 5376×4160 or 6:5 4864×4160(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 50fps.


Smooth Post-workflow: ProRes4444XQ and Compressed RAW cDNG MAVO LF 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 KineRAW, KRW2.0 as compressed RAW has compression ratio from 2:1~10:1. To work with Davinci Resolve, MAVO can record compressed cinemaDNG now, and the compression ratio can be set to 3:1, 5:1, or 7:1. It also features ProRes4444XQ (up to 4K HD@48fps) and ProRes4444(up to 6K @30fps), and ProRes422HQ/422/LT/Proxy for all resolution and frame rate.


Wireless Camera: KineBACK-W on DarkTower After inserting a wireless card (based on DarkTower platform) into the new KineBACK-W, MAVO LF turns into a wireless camera: wireless video transmission and wireless lens control system (support Movcam), which greatly simplifies the connection between the camera and the accessories, improves reliability and durability significantly. The wireless video can work with 2000ft/3000ft based on different wireless cards(DT2000/DT3000).


For detailed configuration of different packages, please check following table:

Note: All MAVO LF cameras have built-in WIFI.


MAVO LF keeps the tiny camera body though the doubled processing ability and more encoding ability, and are compatible with most TERRA accessories. It benefits from MAVO LF’s advanced computation architecture and low-power design so that it packs such powerful performance into such a small and reliable body.
