TERRA 4K, the best entry-level cinema camera, 4K 100fps with 3200/800 Dual Native ISO, easy to be used like DSLR. Body weighs only 990g. Based on sub-S35 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor with 4K+ record resolution (even up to 11 million pixels with open gate recording), it works up to 100fps @4K Wide, 240fps@ 2K Wide, and records Apple ProRes422HQ or compressed RAW as cDNG directly, to get a fast and smooth post workflow.

Super Lightweight: One-man Job

TERRA 4K, weight of camera body is only 990g; its size is only half or third of other MINI cinema cameras. Due to its small form factor close to DSLR, TERRA 4K works well with most of Gimbals, and also lowers the requirements on accessories: so lightweight for handheld operation and for one-man job. With new-designed SideGrip and 5″ fullHD KineMON, TERRA 4K is ready for shooting. TERRA can work up to 60-100min with its lightweight GripBAT (compatible with BP-U30).

High-Speed Dual Native ISO: TERRA 4K

TERRA 4K employs a whole-new, high speed &low noise CMOS image sensor featuring with Dual Native ISO: 3200/800. It captures low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environment easily. The native frame rate of 4K CMOS image sensor is up to 100fps, so the TERRA 4K can record 4K wide up to 100fps, 3K wide up to 150fps and 2K wide up to 240fps. At the same time, its rolling effect is very low due to the high native frame rate, even running at regular fps, and the latitude also reaches to main standard for high-end camera: 14 stops. With advanced process, higher ISO and lower noise, TERRA 4K is twice as low as TERRA 6K noise level, with no need to lower ISO, very convenient and powerful.

Super-Fast Post Workflow: ProRes or cDNG

TERRA 4K can record up to 4K even 6K ProRes 422HQ directly to get a super-fast workflow with very high quality footages: ProRes 422HQ is much better than codecs based on H264, and compatible with all post-workflow softwares. It can also record compressed RAW as cDNG internaly: cDNG returns again in the form of an ajustable compression ratio. Current firmware supports three different compression ratios, 3:1, 5:1 and 7:1 respectively and all of them can get super image quality and large post-adjustment space. Davinci Resolve supports cDNG natively so that it can make film editing and color modulation internaly.

Recommendation for TERRA packages:


Besides, the following general accessory bundles for TERRA are recommended for TERRA owners to set up camera and accessories into appropriate configuration. Discount on three bundles is up to from US $500 to $1000.

Merging all the performance of cinema cameras into such little beauty, this is TERRA: Creation, No boundaries. Not only for one-man job, but also for professional crew; ProRes codecs speeds up the post workflow greatly.

1. Lens mounts

MAVO LF/MAVO/TERRA has universal KineMOUNT as the native mount, but it needs to work with different types of adapters for lenses.

With KineMOUNT, you will get the maximum possibility for using different lens even with different mounts: using different mounting adapter on demand. Besides, just like attaching a lens, it is very easy and fast to attach the adapter to KineMOUNT with no need of adjusting FFD.

    1. PL mounting adapter II: For cinema PL lens;
    2. PL mounting adapter II with e-ND: For cinema PL lens with built-in electronic ND;
    3. EF Mounting Adapter II: For EF lens;
    4. EF mounting adapter II with KineEnhancer: For equivalent full-frame shooting with full-frame EF lens;
    5. EF Mounting Adapter II with e-ND: For EF lens with built-in electronic ND;
    6. SONY FE/E Mounting Adapter: For SONY FE/E lens, currently the E mounting adapter only supports full manual lenses like Fuji MK18-55, 50-135.

Note: EF mounting adapter supports electronic iris-control, while Nikon F mounting adapter does not support electronic iris-control, but it can support only G lens iris-control by technical ring. In addition, individual mounting adapters are accessories, not included in the body when purchase.

Since 2014, every mount or mounting adapter made by Kinefinity is lock-type mount, like cinema PL mounting lock mechanism. It provides much better stability; fits very well in professional way when video shots using follow-focus gear.

2. Shoulder pack (Fits only KineKIT-TERRA as Movcam rig for TERRA)

KineKIT-TERRA has an option for shoulder pack, which includes:

  1. Movcam right-side wooden handgrip: x1;
  2. Movcam TERRA Trigger Cable, coiled: x1 – connect the control port of TERRA to the handgrip so as to trigger on or off by the button on the handgrip;
  3. Movcam Rosette Extension Arm: x1;
  4. Movcam Rosette Offset Adapter: x1;
  5. Movcam KineMON Mount (tailored for KineMON): x1.

This option of shoulder pack is totally worth it; you can shoot on your shoulder very comfortably.

Since MAVO LF/MAVO/TERRA has industry-standard monitoring ports, industry-standard memory slots, industry-standard battery mount and flexible mounting options, you can configure your own camera according to your budget, your lens, accessories and monitors. 

1. Typical configurations

Recommend two practical and cost-saving packages: Basic pack is suitable for one-man job, Pro pack is for film crew with more accessories options while Premium pack includes innovative DarkTower wireless platform:


Note: KineBACK-W only supports SONY V-mount battery plate. For Anton-Bauer broadcast battery, you need to buy a V-mount to Anton-Bauer plate adapter.

2. Three universal accessories packages

For universal accessories, there are three packages to save your time and cost:
