5K for less than US$5K? Kinefinity launch the TERRA: A compact RAW and ProRes shooting cinema camera in 5K and 6K versions1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
2016 is certainly shaping up to be an interesting year for more affordable new cine cameras. With the Sony FS5, Blackmagic Design URSA Mini 4.6K and RED’s Raven already shipping, it’s the turn of Chinese maker Kinefinity to show their hand. The TERRA is a small-bodied Super35 cinema camera that comes in both 5K and 6K versions. The 5K version has the headline grabbing sub US$5K body only price tag (29,900 RMB on the Chinese mainland) and can shoot 5K at 60 frames per second (fps), 4K at 100 fps, or 2K at 200 fps, plus all the regular frame rates.
The 6K version costs slightly more (at around US$5,400 or 34,900 RMB on the Chinese mainland). It features 6K at up to 25fps, 4K at up to 100 fps and 2K at 225fps. It appears to use the same sensor as the existing 6K KineMAX model. This should give it slightly more dynamic range than the 5K model. The base sensitivity remains at 800 ISO.
