Five months after Chinese budget camera maker Kinefinity has announced their latest 6K cameras – Kinefinity MAVO LF and MAVO 6K S35, the company now spills the beans on the full specifications and pricing for the MAVO LF.
The camera features the large-format 6K (6016×4016) sensor measuring in at 36x24mm while being able to record at 6K resolution up to 75 fps. The full-frame MAVO is expected to ship at the end of October selling for $11,999 for the camera body.
Meanwhile, it seems that there’s also a significant firmware update in the making that’s just around the corner as well as proprietary KineRAW 2.0 that’s set for release at the end of the year. Just like the MAVO and TERRA cameras, the MAVO LF feature an Omni KineMOUNT which can be easily converted to PL, EF and Sony E mount.
The MAVO LF also gets a Dual Base ISO of 800/5120, unlike the regular MAVO that has a single base ISO of 800. Currently, the camera can record ProRes or cDNG formats, whereas the Kinefinity’s RAW codec KineRAW is expected to be available at the end of the year.
