4K RAW KineMINI is capable of Capturing and Recording 4K Uncompressed CinemaDNG and 4K Compressed CinemaDNG, In-Camera, without external recorder. New 4K OLPF is re-designed and optimised for 4K capturing, and also it makes images sharper even just capturing and recording 2K in-camera. 4K RAW capturing and recording leaves very large room for reframing, trimming, and CG, even not for 4K delivery. KineMINI may be the most compact cinema camera for 4K RAW capturing now. It can also support 3K Wide@60fps too.
HiSpeed100FPS SLOW-MO KineMINI has the power of capturing 96fps@1080p and 92fps@2K, at S35mm framing size, and can up to 120fps@1080p 2.39:1 Flat, No cropping, and No limitation on recording time. Even you don’t buy the HiSpeed option, the KineMINI is also capable of slow and quick motion capture (overcrank and undercrank): 100fps @ 720p when in S35 framing; and fps up to 48fps @2K and 50fps@1080p when in S16 crop framing mode. As of undercrank/quick-mo, the lowest fps is down to 6fps under current firmware. You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest and highest fps, the accuracy is 0.001fps.
3K 4:3 Anamorphic Native 3K 4:3 frame as 2880×2160@30fps: 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 process in post-workflow, it can reach up to 5760×2160 (6K) CinemaScope!
KineRAW codec KineRAW (.krw) codec, cinema-level codec is developed by Kinefinity with great efforts and resources. Average compression level is 2:1~3:1, lossless compression algorithm: it remains whole information of original image, there is no color sampling and loss. The 240GB KineMAG SSD could record around 45 minutes 4K RAW clips with its date rate close to ProRes422HQ. It can be transcoded into Cineform mov for Cineform workflow and CinemaDNG for CinemaDNG workflow by KineStation ; It really fits 4K, 5K, 6K recording and HiSpeed recording, saves much more storage room, for easier data backup.
Built-in Cineform RAW The KineMINI can record the 2K Cineform ™ RAW at real time, online now. Cineform RAW is as compressed raw using very high quality wavelet compression: visually lossless, and making work-flow more efficient. The famous films like Oscar winner Slumdog Millionaire were acquired by CineForm RAW compression for most images, and also the 127 hours. Cineform codec is cross-platform: run on both MAC and Windows smoothly and efficiently. Nearly all commercial editing tools and grading tools like Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Speedgrade, Resolve, Scratch etc. support Cineform very well. Note: 4K Cineform RAW mov CAN NOT be recorded online.
KineStation New KineMINI, Free KineStation. KineStation + KineCamera = Kine Hybrid System (KHS) . Kine Hybrid System (KHS) is designed to make frontend capturing and backend processing for high-efficiency post workflow. Kine Cameras as frontend capturing tool as RAW to remain Maximum details and latitude, and KineStation as backend bridge running on PC or MAC to post workflow. KineStation can transcoding KineRAW(.krw) and/or CinemaDNG into Cineform RAW/RGB444 to match your favourite workflow. The KineStation will integrate more codecs like DPX, H264, H265 for different controls from RAW into RGB domain, LUT options for quick output.
S35mm KineMINI is a Super35mm sized CMOS sensor camera with outstanding low light performance for HD use as well as for making DCP for projection in modern digital movie theatres where signal to noise ratio under difficult lighting conditions is very important. In the case of shooting feature motion pictures and commercials with ample lighting, the camera can be used as a normal movie camera would be for the cinematographer take advantage of the camera’s wide exposure latitude and ISO range from to get textures from silky fine gain to gritty as needed.
3G SDI and HD Digital Ports KineMINI outputs monitoring signal as 1080p/720p through One SDI and Two HD digital ports, so that you can use compatible third-party EVF like Cineroid EVF/Alphatron EVF, small field monitor like SmallHD monitors and broadcast monitor with SDI input like Zunzheng Monitor. For focusing, the camera’s zoom function can be Full/100%/200%, and even 800% to make focusing job easier. The in-camera waveform monitor and zebra can monitor the RAW signal or “look” LUT so that it helps you better exposure and avoid over-exposure.
NEW LOCK-TYPE EF MOUNT KineMINI camera employs whole new lock-type EF mount from 2014 Jan. Its fixing way is very similar to Cine PL mount: lock ring rotation, not lens rotation to make sure EF lens locked firmly and to be contacted well with pogo-pin contact inside of EF mount in any case. Compared to traditional lock way based on spring metal, the new EF mount gains much better stability; fits very well in professional way when video shots using follow-focus gear.
FLEXIBLE MOUNT OPTIONS Two Native Mount options: EF mount and KineMOUNT. MINI with Native EF weighs less than KineMOUNT version, while KineMOUNT version (Interchangeable Lens Mount system) is more flexible for fast changing mount like changing a PL mount lens, such as EF mount with electronic contacts to tuning aperture, PL mount and Nikon F mount. FFD of KineMOUNT is very short, and used in KineRAW-S35 too.
SPORT MODE KineMINI features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. KineMINI employs state-of-art CMOS sensor, which is rolling shutter type, then suffers some rolling effect. Sport Mode is designed to alleviate the rolling greatly, and make KineMINI handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style. The footages would be turned into Cineform RGB444 mov after KineStation transcoding. Sport Mode works on 2K and 1080p.
CINEMADNG CinemaDNG ™is frame-based, just like Film. CinemaDNG™ offers maximum image quality and license free archive of your shots as “Digital Negative” that can be processed any way you like and be archived in an “open file format” that can be accessed and supported for all time to come, no matter what happens. CinemaDNG ™ is Adobe ™’s format for saving motion picture digital negatives the digital equivalent of motion picture color negative film (not necessarily the equal in all respects as that depends on the sensor used and how the recorded data is processed, just as the results of movie film depend on how it is processed).
KINEMINI = RAW + LOOK What the KineMINI records are 12bits RAW image data plus it makes a 3D-LUT to match the “look” used for monitoring when shooting. The wonder of KineMINI is that you can always re-process any shot using a different grade by way of just changing the 3D-LUT used for processing. Loading the 3D-LUT made by the camera for color matching, such as when using in camera ‘looks’ KineLOG/KineColor/Kine709, you can quickly intergrate footage from the KineMINI with your existing Cineon ™ film log, HDTV or VFX worklows.
S16mm MODE S16mm mode is designed to use the centre of image sensor which is 4K S35mm sensor in KineMINI to match S16mm frame size. Since it is 4K S35mm sensor, it turns into 2K when cropped in S16mm mode. In this S16mm mode, you can use S16mm PL cine lens, even the broadcast B4 mount lens, to shoot in 2K RAW image, with less rolling effect, and overcrank to 60fps@2K RAW.
LIGHT-WEIGHT AND COMPACT Small as 1/3 of KineRAW-S35, and Light as 1/2 of its big brother. With handgrip and its battery, it is very convenient for different environments you want. More light-weight, more compact consume less power, energy and errors, especially for one-man band. And there are two color options for camera body: Black and Titanium Grey.
