S35mm KineRAW-MINI 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.
KINERAW = RAW + LOOK What the KineRAW-MINI records are 12bits RAW image data plus it makes a 3D-LUT to match the “look” used for monitoring when shooting. The wonder of KineRAW-MINI 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 KineRAW-MINI ™ with your existing Cineon ™ film log, HDTV or VFX worklows.
SLOW AND QUICK MOTION KineRAW-MINI is capable of slow and quick motion capture (overcrank and undercrank). As of overcrank/slow-mo, it supports high fps up to 100fps @ 720p when in S35 framing mode; and fps up to 60fps @2K and 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, while recording fps is set by project fps in the camera. It provides much more possibilities over fixed fps like 24, 25, 30fps.
SPORT MODE KineRAW-MINI features sport mode which reduces rolling effect greatly, seems like global shutter. KineRAW-MINI 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 KineRAW-MINI handle quick movement shootings, like handheld, shots on shoulder, documentary style. The footages would be turned into Cineform RGB444 mob after KineStation transcoding.
OFFLINE CINEFORM RAW Offline output Cineform RAW Codec Option: MINI cannot record Cineform RAW online or in-camera, but you can choose to output Cineform RAW offline Option. With this option, when copy footages from KineMAG to workstation or lap-top using our dedicated software, at the same time the recorded CinemaDNG footages can be encoded automatically into Cineform RAW mov with audio embedded, with little additional time effort. Nearly all commercial editing tools and grading tools like Final Cut Pro, Premiere, Speedgrade, Resolve, support Cineform.
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).
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.
S16mm MODE S16mm mode is designed to use the centre of image sensor which is 4K S35mm sensor in KineRAW-MINI 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.
KineRAW-MINI™ is a powerful and versatile tool for 35mm like Cinematography while still being self-contained and really portable. It’s a serious film-making tool with real Digital Cinema Camera features at an affordable price.
