Kinefinity announced the release of cinema cameras “MAVO mark2 S35” and “MAVO mark2 LF.”
The Kinefinity MAVO mark2 S35 is equipped with a new 6K S35 CMOS image sensor, with a frame rate of up to 96 at 6K Wide. The dual sensor with native ISO800/3200 enables low-light performance and facilitates more possible filmmaking. The MAVO mark2 LF inherits the MAVO Edge 6K’s full-frame 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor, and the full-frame format achieves a shallow depth of field and a highly immersive sense of reality.
The MAVO mark2 adopts the MAVO Edge high-performance computing platform, integrating industry-standard ports such as independent dual SDI outputs with metadata, and encoding the image as Apple ProRes4444/XQ video onto NVMe M.2 2280 SSD. there is The MAVO mark2 S35 and MAVO mark2 LF are said to be able to provide many cinematographers with a professional and efficient filmmaking experience at an affordable price, thanks to their lightweight and compact camera body and streamlined workflow.
New S35, improved FPS
The MAVO mark2 S35 is designed to use S35 glass, giving you more style at an affordable price compared to full size glass.
Based on an advanced computing platform, the new camera is equipped with a new S35 3:2 CMOS image sensor, capable of shooting up to 6K wide at 96fps and 4K wide at 150fps. This new sensor features native ISO 800/3200 just like the MAVO Edge 8K and is said to capture images with less noise than the previous generation. Equipped with the new S35 sensor, the MAVO mark2 S35 is said to deliver clean shadows, excellent highlight detail, wide latitude up to 14 stops, and high frame rates even in low light and studio shots.
Continuing from the Kinefinity MAVO Edge 6K, the MAVO mark2 LF is equipped with a 6K full-frame 3:2 CMOS image sensor, maintaining a frame rate of up to 75fps at 6K Wide and 150fps at 4K Wide and dual native ISO 5120/800. The industry-standard ISO 800 is good for shooting in normal light sources, while the second, native ISO 5120 is great for low-light scenes, delivering clean images with high latitude and low noise, ideal for documentary filmmaking. It is ideal for those who prefer the available light for shooting at night or for those who prefer it. Compared to the MAVO LF, the MAVO mark2 can retain details in highlights, making it ideal for shooting in complex lighting environments, delivering organic images and a cinematic look.
New Mount, more Modern Lens
MAVO mark2 offers more comprehensive lens options with the introduction of a new mount, and its interchangeable mount design accommodates a wider range of modern lenses. It works smoothly with almost all cinema PL/LPL lenses, DLSR EF lenses, and the latest E-mount lenses, allowing you to shoot in a variety of styles.
The KineRAW-S35, the first cinema camera released by Kinefinity in 2012, features a native KineMOUNT with a short flange distance. KineMOUNT can exchange mount adapters such as EF, PL, LPL without tools. MAVO mark2 has two new lens mounts, active PL mount and active E mount, while keeping the dedicated native KineMOUNT. Active mounts can be installed and removed by the user without having to calibrate the flange distance.
Active PL mount
The active PL mount provides a strong connection between the lens and camera with a highly reliable Cinemascope locking mechanism. Since it supports the Cooke/i protocol and can be saved as a clip, intuitive exchanges at the shooting site and flexible correspondence at the post are possible.
The active E -mount on the MAVO mark2 is said to be instantly compatible with most of the latest lightweight E-lenses. Also, if there is a lens option, it is possible to activate the lens optical image stabilization.
Also, if you purchase the MAVO mark2 during the pre-sale period, the active E mount will be free.
Advanced Platform, Efficient Workflow
Apple ProRes4444 Recording
MAVO mark2 has a choice of 4:4:4 sampling codecs from Apple ProRes422 LT to ProRes4444XQ with the ability to record high quality clips directly in-camera. It also records Kine LOG3 gamma which retains all dynamic range data captured by the CMOS image sensor for fast post-production workflows.
Safe and flexible recording media
The SSD slot of MAVO mark2 uses PCIe, and the recommended recording media is the unique “KineMAG Nano 1TB/2TB” based on NVMe M.2 2280 SSD. KineMAG Nano SSD is equipped with two safety functions “Read-only” and “RAID5”. Improves the safety of KineMAG Nano when copying or writing to SSD with camera at high speed. A universal USB-C port allows KineMAG Nano to offload data to your workstation at speeds up to 10Gbps.
Compact and Lightweight Camera Body
Body design with a sense of unity The
The Kinefinity MAVO mark2 inherits the integrated body design of the MAVO Edge camera, which won the prestigious iF DESIGN AWARD 2021. The compact camera body weighs just 1.35kg and features common control ports, dual SDI outputs with embedded metadata and audio, and high-quality multi-channel audio recording.
Comprehensive power solution
MAVO Edge 6K is equipped with an innovative hybrid battery plate to meet the power demands of various shooting scenarios. Hybrid battery plate supports 14.8VV mount batteries like KineBAT PD 75w/150w. It also supports BP-U type batteries like the GripBAT 4S to meet the power demands of complex camera setups that require lightweight construction. With the addition of Movcam’s cage, KineKit-Edge, NP-F550 type batteries such as the GripBAT 2S can support uninterruptible power supply to the camera via the UPS Baseplate.
MAVO mark2 works perfectly with the bright KineMON-5U2/7U2 touchscreen monitor. All camera parameters can be displayed on the monitor and adjusted easily and conveniently. It also supports the KineEVF2 OLED viewfinder which displays accurate and sharp color images like an optical viewfinder.
For camera rigs, Movcam KineKIT-Edge with UPS baseplate, Tilta Camera Cage for MAVO Edge, SmallRig Camera Cage Kit for MAVO Edge can be installed.
In addition, the new “Agile KIT” tailored to the MAVO mark2 includes a new carbon fiber top handle, 2000nits KineMON-5U2 with 360-degree rotation, a new dual D and dual C KineBAT99 set, and a KineMAG Nano 1TB SSD. is The integrated MAVO mark2 equipped with the Agile KIT can be taken out immediately for shooting.
