Kinefinity made a big splash last year with their KineMax 6K, which is not only powerful enough for professionals, but offers internal 6K, 4K, golden 3K/2K, and 1080p with 14 stops of dynamic range at a relatively affordable price.
With the camera's release inching ever closer, Kinefinity has not only significantly lowered the price (more on that later), but they've released the first footage shot with the camera in 6K, as well as free downloads of the RAW material. (You can get them here.) Here's the list of the gear used in the video below:
- Camera: KineMAX 6K Prototype, KineMOUNT+ PL mounting adapter
- Lens: Zeiss Compact Prime Set
- EVF: Cineroid Retina EVF
- Tiffen ND Filters
And here are the updated specs:
One big thing that has changed since we spoke with the Chinese company at the NAB 2014 are the prices. Originally, they ranged from $10,000 to $15,000 depending on the package, but Kinefinity has reduced them by quite a bit. Here's a quick pricing breakdown of the different packages:
- KineMax Body: $8,000
- Starter: $9,000
- Standard: $11,000
- Professional: $13,000
The Starter, Standard, and Professional packages include a bunch of add-ons, like the KineAudio/Pro Audio Module, integrated battery plate, KineGrip, KineMag-120GB/240GB SSD, and much more. Both are $1000. You should also keep in mind that the prices for the first 100 units are marked down $1000 for each package. Unfortunately, 6K RAW, 4K 4:3 Anamorphic, and HiSpeed options are not included, but you can purchase KineMAX 6K RAW and KineMAX HiSpeed upgrades.
