The Terra 4K has the wildly popular industry standard ProRes.

Also the Terra 4K brain costs only US$4K, that is an awful lot cheaper than a FS7!!

Yes, there are packages for the Terra 4K which are $5.5K and $7K (still less than the $9K a FS7mk2 costs!), but to compare these packages with additional options against a FS7mk2 isn't fair.

You should add the costs of a XDCA & 7Q+ to the Sony's price to get a vaguely similar comparable package, which is then adds another $3.5K to the $9K price of a FS7mk2 for a total of $12.5K! Waaaay more than a Terra 4K package.

David, thank your for your answers to my questions. But why would I want to compare the Terra 4K to an FS7mk2 plus an XDCA and a 7Q+? That doesn't make sense. Even an original FS7 with no additional accessories or add-ons is more than enough to beat the features and capabilities of the Terra 4K. Furthermore, I will take XAVC-I over ProRes any day because the image quality is the same at half the file size.

Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

The Kinefinity Terra 4K is just another tool, offered at a great price, that produces very good images. It's great to have several options (Sony, Canon, Panasonic, Black Magic, Red, Kinefinity, etc)!

Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

That Chinese clip at the top of this page looks awful, just a bad situation to try to make good looking images. But the Pro AV footage looks very nice. Seems like an interesting solution, especially for the indie filmmaker. Looking forward to seeing what you can do with the Terra Troy. Where did you buy it from and which lenses will you be using it with?

Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

Hey Dan! Yes, as with EVERY new camera, footage varies from questionable to great (same when the Canon C200 and Panasonic EVA1 were launched)! I purchased my Terra 4K directly from Kinefinity. I've been watching these guys for the last 6 years. Finally decided to take the plunge on the Terra 4K. It checked the boxes for what I preferred. Wanted something different (I've owned every Canon cinema camera, up to and including the Canon C200). I'll be using it with a couple of Leica R lenses (Duclos De-clicked with EF mount conversion) and maybe a Zeiss CP.2.

What has the bad grading to do with the quality of the camera?

Frankly, I don't understand all this negativity about this camera. We should welcome competition from new companies, this keeps everybody on their toes.

Anyone knows how to obtain creative commons raw test footage to get a feel for how this camera grades?

They are both all-intra and use the same DCT technology.
I think that your claim is simply impossible.

Misread here. I wrote Everything about it is awful etc the subject it being the posted video. No negativity from me whatsoever about the camera (nor from the other posters that spoke about the grading, is my read). I do indeed welcome with open arms new gear, including the Kinefinity Terra 4K, and new companies that introduce new gear.
