Kinefinity MAVO LF - 6K full format RAW cine camera from October for 12,000 dollars

Kinefinity MAVO LF - 6K full format RAW cine camera from October for 12,000 dollars

[08:48 wed,22.August 2018   by ]    

Like announced in March, Kinefinity is now using BIRTV 2018 in China to announce more details about the upcoming MAVO LF: It is a cinematic camera with a 36x24mm full-frame sensor. The technical data of the MAVO LF have improved once again: It should now be able to record in 6K wide (at 36mm sensor width) with up to 75fps, in 5K wide (30.5mm) up to 80 fps, in 4K (24mm) with 100fps and in 3K (18.3mm) up to 150 fps. In 2K Wide with a sensor width of approx. 12.2mm even 200 fps are possible.

It is recorded on normal 2.5-inch SATA SSDs, either in ProRES or in CinemaDNG with 3:1, 5:1 or 7:1 compression. These CDNG compression rates are all supported directly by Resolve. ProRES is available in 12bit as 444 XQ, 444 and in 10 bit as 422HQ/422/LT/Proxy. In addition, the proprietary KineRaw, which offers RAW compression ratios from 2:1 to 10:1, will continue to be supported.


The dynamic range of 14+ f-stops has been retained, but the sensor should now support Dual Native ISO as opposed to the small MAVO model. The base ISO can be switched between 800 and 5120.

The rolling shutter readout times of the MAVO LF are supposed to be lower than on older Kinefinity 6K models, which however had very moderate rolling shutter values. We could already convince ourselves that the smaller S35-MAVO actually shows a better rolling shutter behavior than the old Kinemax 6K. (A test will be released on slashCAM shortly).

The MAVO LF also comes with the in-house KineMOUNT, which offers a wide range of lens options (including PL, Canon EF, Nikon F, Sony FE/E and EF/PL, as well as electronic ND/e-ND) thanks to its own adapters.

The MAVO case, like all Terra models, remains just under 1kg and most Terra accessories will remain compatible. The new KineBACK W add-on module for XLRXLR im Glossar erklärt and SDISDI im Glossar erklärt connections, which now also has wireless support, has a new design and is no longer backward compatible. This requires a special wireless card, which can turn the MAVO into a wireless camera. Camera control via app is also planned.

The biggest secret about the MAVO LF has now been revealed. Namely the price and availability: It is to be delivered from October 2018 and the naked body will cost 12,000 US dollars. In a Basic Bundle you pay around 13,500 US dollars with monitor, battery, handle, power cable and 500GB SSD. Thicker complete packages (including KineBACK W and Wireless KIT) end at ,000.

This makes the MAVO LF by far the cheapest 6K RAW full-frame camera on the market. This is exciting in that so far neither Blackmagic, Canon nor Panasonic and Sony have used the full-frame cine camera market for less than 30,000 Euros. While the S35 market with Blackmagics URSA Mini Pro, Canons C200 or Panasonics EVA1 has been well occupied for a year now, the full-format RAW market is only starting with Sony&s VENICE from approx. 40,000 Euros. RED and ARRI are already sitting on top of it. Without RAW possibilities and in 4K/8 bit there is already full format around 2,000 Euro, e.g. with some A7 models from Sony.
