Veydra Micro 4/3 Mini Primes Lens Test on the GH4, New Kinefinity KineMINI Footage and More Black Friday Deals!

The “one of a kind” Veydra Micro 4/3 Mini Primes have already reached their funding goal on Kickstarter only 10 days in. The campaign has raised over $74,000 and climbing as of now, and that’s not surprising at all. Ryan Avery, founder of Veydra, recently shared some really interesting details about the lenses in our Podcast Episode #24. The Kickstarter campaign has 19 more days, so if you’re after some serious cine lenses for your GH4 or BMCC MFT or BMPCC, now is the time to claim your set at a significant discount from $200 off per lens, to $1,200 off per set of 4. After the crowdfunding campaign ends, the lenses will revert to the list prices of $899 – $1,199 per lens.

Here’s a lens test they recently did [via Wide Open Camera].

Here are some more complete tests from the Panasonic GH4 for everyone to review. We are confident you will be happy with the performance of Veydra Mini Primes and we have put them up against some popular lenses. We have been working hard on this for the last 4 days so please understand we couldn’t test everything against every lens on every camera. Lens tests are very difficult with multiple criteria and the possibilities are nearly endless. We feel that what we have given you here is a good representation of what the Veydra Mini Primes can do as if you were going to test them for rental.

On this Test we used a Panasonic GH4 and you will find the following; Focus Breathing, Color Matching within the set of lenses, Flare, Contrast, Skintones, and Bokeh.
