Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

Thanks, Glen -- looks like there's more here:

DSLR News Shooter | The Chinese KineRAW mini S35 camera – a new rival to Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera?

(better writing as well)

Those product images are renders... this thing ain't real yet.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

I hope some of you don't go deaf listening to this video. I don't know where that beeping noise is coming from and I wish it wasn't their when I shot it because it almost ruins my video.

Anyway, here's a video of their NAB booth with a rep discussing the 4K versions which is on display as well as the new 6K version.


-EDIT-
Maybe I should have started a new thread. Was their a thread already talking about the 4K and 6K versions?

The background voices is more annoying than the beeping.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

These guys always seem to get lost in the latest fuss over something by Blackmagic.
Has anyone around here used their stuff? (besides Dan Hudgins). They seem rather promising.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

I don't think they have much if anything out for people to have tried yet. I am sure a lot of attention will be paid once they release the 4k version of their camera and folks get a chance to see footage.

4k for $4k might be a steal or too good to be true. On paper it would seem a better way to go than a GH4 + Yagh unit imho.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

Well you do get 4K, 10 bit and 422 out of the HDMI port so depending on what your doing, you might not really need that expensive attachment. You'll just need the GH4 and the Atomos Shogun.

Still, the Kinimini does seam promising. This will be probably be a big hit in China and also sell quit a lot in the rest of the world if reviews are good. It's true that they'll have to make sure people from other countries have a good way to repair their cameras if anything happens. Maybe put repair centers in different countries if they haven't already.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

Yes, product reliability is a total unknown and I would guess that repair is not going to be a pretty process.

Regarding the GH4, there is no way I would want to work with Micro HDMI holding the fate of the video signal. HDMI has its drawbacks. Mini-HDMI is worse. Micro... :)

Great to see all of these choices in the market though.

Re: Kinefinity's new MiniS35 2K cam

We tested the KineRaw S35 during the CML tests and it did pretty well. Maybe not quite up to the standards of the Alexa or F55 but pretty good none the less. I think the workflow, debayering etc needs some work. Comprehensive Camera Tests 2014
