ProMoviemaker Magazine has just reviewed the Terra 4K and gives it a glowing 9 out of 10!
"Deserves to be a huge success, as it delivers in every department for this sort of camera"...

Am I missing something? There's no viewfinder option at all and a fully-outfitted camera costs more than an FS7. I don't think the demo video looks that good unless you are really into crushed blacks. To top it off, Cinema DNG is one of the worst formats to work with. I don't get what the fuss is about.

I thought crushed blacks were still trendy? :D

I hear you, but people have various opinions and needs for viewfinders and I think it makes some sense for a small company to not focus on spending limited resources developing EVFs. The Zacuto Graticals are fairly nice for the price, and I know I've worked lots of RED jobs with mainly an on-camera 5-inch or 7-inch monitor (and sometimes something bigger for the the focus puller). And I think this camera is meant to compete more with RED, perhaps Arri Mini, etc rather than FS7...

Those two videos, I'm pretty sure were shot by reviewers, not by Kinefinity. I'm not yet sure what the camera is capable of, but I'm not going to make a final judgment based on those.

And it looks like their cameras can record ProRes422HQ or their own RAW. The company advocates (it seems?) converting their RAW to CinemaDNG, and that format is kind of a pain (as are many RAW and single-frame/file formats, for that matter), but you don't have to go that way.

So these might still be interesting cameras. I want to wait to see what some other people think. And frankly, for my work, even though these are fairly low priced, they're not at the top of my "to buy" list. Still, interesting...

Most everything about it is awful in my humble opinion, and yes, especially the grading, the fast cut slomo and the dreadful soft cloud cover.
