Kinefinity MAVO Edge 8K Cinema Camera Announced (FF 8K @ 75fps)


Recommended Posts

Quote

The new 8K imaging sensor on the MAVO Edge contains 45 million pixels on a 36x24mm full-frame CMOS sensor featuring 800/3200 dual native ISO, 8K Wide up to 75fps, and latitude up to 14+ stops. Furthermore, the MAVO Edge can capture images as 100fps at 6K Wide or 160fps at 4K Wide. At the same time, MAVO Edge also supports oversampling in Full Frame mode to output 6K or 4K resolutions which will result in more details and latitude with the same optical format.

Internal motorized FS e-ND system

Kinefinity integrates the motorized FS e-ND system inside the camera for the first time. Switching between clear glass and e-ND filter is motorized and built-in as expected; the e-ND filter can cover the wide range from 2 stops to 7 stops with continuous adjustment at high precision.

Niiiiice, is this the first cinema camera outside Sony with an e-ND?

This is very cool! First time I've ever seen this design. You've got fully integrated BOTH BP-U Batteries and V-Lock Batteries! V-Locks for your usual shooting, with the option to super slim down your setup to use a BP-U30 for the likes of gimbal shots. 


All in all this is a very attractive looking camera, you've got that nice big integrated display for camera controls (although, on the operator side! Not the AC's side), and just in general more integrated into this body than before (no need for the KineBack-W now!). This is also the first Kinefinity camera to do ProResRAW

The rest is total overkill!

The MAVO Edge is a whole new body (in spite of keeping the "MAVO" name, indicating you'd think it shares a body with the existing MAVO/TERRA line up). Hopefully they bring this new body design to a cheaper S35  or 4/3" version.

The battery solution on the back in ingenious and the build in ND make it incredible.

I just realized something else genius about their design:

You can slide in 2x NP-F550 batteries underneath the camera (integrated in with the rails!), which means you can easily hot swap V-Lock batteries without needing to wait around for reboots! Killing wasted downtime.

Is it IMX309 in the Panasonic S1 / S1H as well?

And I am asuming the 60MP one in the Z-CAM E2 F8 is also in the A7R IV.

Get Canon's image processor in there immediately 😂

S1/S1H are based on IMX410, the A7 III sensor, also seen on Z6, MAVO LF and ZCAM F6, it's extremely popular.

Yes the 60MP one is IMX455.

Z Cam released one a month or so ago for their flagship line.  It’s not built into the body, but there is a built in slot on the EF mount where it slides in similar to the Canon ND mount except, electronic.

So now we have the first non-drone based camera with internal ProRes RAW.  Makes me wonder if they had to have a separate license with Red.

Yeah Kinefinity had an adapter accessory as well which has an e-ND

But this might be the first non-Sony with it built in

Or maybe they just don't care because they're in China?

ah, ok yeah I think you’re right there about the first built-in.  

ha, well maybe they don’t care.  although News Shooter asked them and they said Apple gave them the license.  I was wondering before if Apple somehow has a blanket license from Red and then sub-licenses to manufacturers or something.

With no surprise, the sensor is based on IMX309, the one used in Nikon D850 and Z7.

If 8K75p is possible in this format, surely the current gen of mirrorless cameras are capable of 8K30p for a couple of minutes. Poor Sony will have to do downsampling to 8K in their R series if they decide to optimize the a7SIII for the best 4K image and fast framerates. This leaves little doubt that z7 mk II will have to do 8K and so will S1R mk II.
