Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

ProRes is a great quality CODEC today but let's all agree that it's now a dinosaur. Yes, it will STILL give you fantastic quality and HQ is very durable in post against stretching and bending and lifting. However, it was created in a time when computers were MUCH slower than they are today. It uses relatively simple DCT calculatuons that literally go back to the early days of .jpg compression.

H.264 is FAR more advanced, effecient and just plain "smarter". Not just long GOP and the estimation tools and entropy calculations but in all I frame too!

Look at the Lumix GH5's 10bit 400mbp/s h.264 all I frame CODEC. If you have ever shot 10bit V-Log with it, you will see that its pretty damn durable. Just as tough as ProRes but lighter weight.

I like both CODECS but I see it like this:

H.264 All I frame = Tough durability, light weight but need more CPU playback hoursepower.

ProRes HQ = Tough durability, heavy on size but easy playback on low horse power CPU computers. (Good if you have a five 4k camera multi-cam editing job on fat RAID drives)

I like them both but for different reasons.

Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

Good Day Dan! Just recently received the batteries for my Terra 4K (batteries are shipped in a separate package). I should have some time within the next two weeks to get some footage posted. I'll be working with DaVinci Resolve in Post.

Re: Kinefinity Terra 4K

Excellent footage!

It is clear that this camera has a great dynamic range and a good highlight roll-off!

Completely agree, similar quality is obtainable with a wide variety of cameras.
