KineOS5.2 is only for TERRA 6K. The update covers improving monitoring image quality; allowing different FPS for monitoring; much more responsive on UI; activating Low-power Mode on SideGrip, supporting fast-forward or fast-reverse when playback, changing the working principle when applying external TC, lowering the minimum sensor fps to 2fps and supporting e-ND adapters.
1. Improving the monitoring image quality:
The real-time monitoring image quality is highly improved:
- Improve monitoring algorithm to get better monitoring image quality;
- Reduce latency of monitoring;
- Support different monitoring frame rate such as 23.976fps, 24fps, 25fps, 29.97fps, 30fps, 50fps, 59.94fps and 60fps, making HD-SDI or 3G-SDI possible;
- Better compatibility for third-party monitors.
2. More responsive:
It’s more efficient while set ISO or switch between 3D LUT, and also more fluent operation when set the e-ND(electronic ND) adapters.
3. Low-power Mode available:
One more function on SideGrip, the low-power Mode is now available:
- SideGrip supports low power consumption at Low-power Mode (press twice on the Low-power Mode button);
- Help you save the GripBAT power and the time to reboot the camera as well.
4. Fast-forward & Fast-reverse and Audio Monitoring for SDI
- Allow fast-forward or fast reverse by 5 seconds under Playback Mode;
- Support loop playback of the current clip.
5. Support Adapters with e-ND
TERRA with KineMOUNT can use the adapters with e-ND, change stops by Multifunction Wheel.
- The minimum sensor fps is lowered to 2fps;
- Zebra is applicable now at Golden 3K;
- While transcoding the KRW clips into CinemaDNG by KineStation, the KineLOG3 is burned into the clips;
- External timecode setup and display more intuitively;
- Waveform display at RAW mode, the wave shows data with LOG;
- Auto White Balance works with codec ProRes;
- Enlarge the volume range of in-camera MIC and 3.5mm MIC;
- SSD indicator works;
- Improve the safety and stability of adapters when attached EF lenses;
- Improve the security of SSD file system;
- Support more EF lenses under Enhanced mode;
- Fix the noise near highlights for some scenes;
- Fix the unstable status due to low SSD speed;
- Support more codecs for 3D shooting;
- Fix abnormal boots;
- Fix other bugs.
Stability of this version: Evaluation. Note: work with KineStation V0.9.
