TERRA Cine Camera

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. (TERRA 6K is discontinued. It is TERRA 4K if TERRA mentioned in this context.)

Though TERRA 4K as entry-level cine camera, it features high speed 4K CMOS image sensor with Dual Native ISO(3200/800): it captures low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environment, easily.

4K+ Resolution TERRA 4K is capable of Capturing and Recording 4K+ as 4096×2700 RAW (.krw) or Apple ProRes without external recorder. Its vertical resolution is up to 2700, more 30% than regular 4K UHD/DCI resolution, easier for 4:3 anamorphic shooting. With the advanced CMOS process technology, the CMOS sensor has lower noise level, half of TERRA 6K.

Dual Native ISO TERRA 4K employs a whole-new 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 latitude reaches up to 13+ stops at regular 4K and cropping mode, and even more at 2K output when whole frame (using all pixels and oversampling down to 2K).

Rolling Shutter The native frame rate of CMOS image sensor of TERRA 4K is up to 100fps, so the TERRA 4K can record 4K wide up to 100fps, 3K wide up to 150fps, 2K wide up to 240fps. At the same time, its rolling effect is very low due to its high native frame rate, even running at regular fps.

4K 100FPS For TERRA 4K, the fps at 4K wide can be boosted up to 100fps due to its high native frame rate, then the whole frame 2K wide can work as 100fps, cropping 2K wide can work up to 240fps. As of quick-mo, the minimum fps is down to 6fps. Any custom sensor fps can be set between lowest and highest fps with step of 0.001fps.

ProRes for All Res and All Fps  TERRA allows compressed RAW cDNG recording or Apple ProRes recording directly. For ProRes codec, it does not only support regular 2K/4K ProRes, but also has ability to record ProRes 422HQ for all resolution and all fps which the TERRA supports, 4K wide 100fps ProRes, 2K@240fps. Apple ProRes as an industry standard is widely supported by DI/NLE softwares. TERRA with ProRes speeds up both shooting and post-workflow at the same time.


Compressed cDNG  CinemaDNG returns to TERRA 4K, Kine camera again with configurable compression ratio! TERRA 4K can in-camera record compressed RAW with CinemaDNG format, and the compression ratio is configurable, from 3:1, 5:1 to 7:1. Davinci Resolve natively supports CinemaDNG, so that you can directly import, edit and grade the CinemaDNG footage shot by TERRA in Davinci Resolve! No matter 3:1, 5:1 or 7:1, every format is able to achieve super high quality image and room for post-production.


KineRAW (.krw) codec, cinema-level codec is developed by Kinefinity with great efforts and resources. KRW2.0 is a compressed RAW with compression ratio from 2:1 to 10:1, so that it can be recorded as RAW when very high resolution and very high frame rate. If compression ratio is 3:1, one 500GB KineMAG SSD could record around 100 minutes 4K RAW clips with its data rate slightly larger than ProRes422HQ. It really fits 4K, 6K recording and HiSpeed recording: reserving max grading room, saving much storage spaces and easier data backup. KRW 2.0 might be available by firmware update in 2019. 

2.5″ SSD recording media TERRA employs standard 2.5″ 7mm SSD SATA3.0 as recording media to provide compatibility of 3rd-party SSD, though TERRA is so small. There are lots of off-the-shelf 7mm SSD available. However performance of 3rd party SSD is not guaranteed, only official 7mm KineMAG 500G/1T SSD is recommended for serious shootings.

Custom in-camera LUT  You can upload the LUT/color style which you like, or DP like, or designed by post house to TERRA, so that the workflow from shooting to post will be optimised and reduce the time for you, also help on-site lighting and art work. For recording KRW or ProRes with custom LUT, it does not burn into footage: footage is always logged (by KineLOG3), on-site LUT for monitoring is saved to the same folder. The size of 3D LUT is from 8x8x8 up to 33x33x33.

Multi-Framing Oversampling + Crop mode + KineEnhancer = infinity combination of resolution, fps and framing. With the help of in-camera oversampling, TERRA records to 4K ProRes, but also 2K ProRes with sharper and cleaner images at S35. The framing can be from sub S35 up to sub full frame if using KineEnhancer, while cropping mode can boost the higher fps. TERRA supports above three modes to get multi-framing and multi res, at different fps.


4K 4:3 Anamorphic TERRA 4K provides 4:3 frame as 3700×2700@50fps. and Aspect ratio of 4:3 matches anamorphic lens with factor of 2, so that it will gain CinemaScope frame as 8:3(2.66:1). With the desqueezed process in post-workflow, it can reach up to 7400×2800/7200×2700/8640×3240 (8K) CinemaScope!

KineMOUNT as Omni Mount KineMOUNT is the native lens mount of TERRA. It provides enough possibility due to its short FFD(15mm). New KineMOUNT is re-designed to be light with electronic contact (active) in order to support new PL mounting adapter with /i tech and new cordless EF mounting adapter, EF mounting adapter with KineEnhancer, new SONY FE/E mounting adapter, EF/PL mounting adapters with electronic ND(e-ND), etc.

Whole-new Accessories A group of whole-new accessories are designed specifically for TERRA, so that TERRA can be configured for one-man job or a professional filmmaking crew. KineBACK-W provides more than SDI monitoring, XLR 48V audio, V-mount plate, regulated DC output, timecode sync and 3D sync in one little module. KineMON as fullHD 5″ monitor is powered and is fed video from TERRA body by only one cord. SideGrip, as new handgrip w/ powering and control from GripBAT 45Wh(BP-U30 compatible) battery, more than one hour for usage. KineBAT 120Wh as Super compact V-mount battery provides over four hours to TERRA. KineKIT-TERRA from Movcam takes into account of TERRA in different scenarios, such as hand-held, tripod, on shoulder, gimbal, high and low shooting angles, etc., which makes it best choice for TERRA.

Create, no boundaries. As a small and powerful cinema camera, TERRA is designed from bottom to top to facilitate filmmaking from shooting to post workflow. The value and flexibility from the TERRA lets you put more of your production budget and energy into what goes in front of the camera. It’s a serious film-making tool with real Digital Cinema Camera features at such a price within reach.

Firm is the soul of camera. The KineOS6.0 on TERRA 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 

TERRA 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 TERRA and other camera is that TERRA 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 and histogram.

ZOOM and Focusing

TERRA 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.

Accurate Automatic WB 

TERRA 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. TERRA would save the parameter into camera for later usage. Besides, TERRA 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.

Histogram with Tick Mark *(Not available yet)

TERRA integrate not only histogrm, but also special tick mark: 18% grey and 90% white respectively. Like waveform, histogram also shows RAW(w/ KineLOG) or RAW(w/ KineLOG)+LUT data automatically.

Accurate and custom sensor fps  

You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest (6fps 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. It provides much more possibilities over fixed fps like 24, 25, 30fps. 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, TERRA fulfills the dream. TERRA supports 4K 4:3 anamorphic frame size, and de-squeeze images into normal images in live view and playback, just setting the display ratio according to your anamorphic ratio.

Framing Ratio: 2.39:1  

TERRA 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 

TERRA 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 recording ProRes.

Upgrade Firmware by USB  

TERRA 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 TERRA USB port, press upgrade in the menu. The update job is done after 15 mins.

Iris-Control on EF Lens  

TERRA supports majority of lens with iris-control as soon as you buy camera with native EF mount or active EF mounting adapter for KineMOUNT mount. TERRA 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.

EF Lens Compatible White-List

Real 3D Shots

TERRA can take real 3D shots. Just one SYNC cable to connect two TERRA 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 TERRA 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 TERRAs (one master camera and seven slave cameras).
