4K What? China’s Kinefinity KineMax 6K Video Cameras Are Almost Here! Stephen Fung February 18, 2015 With 1080p TVs only starting to become commonplace, and with 4K TVs still barely on the mind of most consumers, or even content providers for that matter, a Chinese company called Kinefinity has been forging ahead in the resolution race. Their Kinefinity KineMax 6K video camera is about to hit the North American market, and it’s going to be one heckuva deal. The Kinefinity KineMax 6K is able toshootinternal 6K, 4K, golden 3K/2K, and 1080p with 14 stops of dynamic range at a relatively affordable price. How affordable you ask? They’ll be starting at$8,000 US for the body, while different kits will also be available, giving different levels of capabilities out of the box. This includes aStarter kit for $9,000 US, a standard for$11,000 USand a professional kit for $13,000 US. Considering that most 4K cinema cameras will set you back at least $8,000 US and more, the higher resolution, modularity of the system to accept future upgrades, and the fact that it uses a standard Canon EF mount (with PL as an option with adapter), immediately lets you shoot on a whole range of available lenses. Did I mention that it shoots 6K in RAW and does HighSpeed with optional upgrades? The company has released one of the first videos shot with this camera. And if you want a chance to see how the files work in your workflow, you can download RAW files right here. While some of you may be surprised to see this type of technology come out of China, and you might even be worried about the quality of the camera itself, it’s worth noting that “Chollywood” turns out more features than “Hollywood” in a year. In fact, some of the bigger sets, like the one that replicates the forbidden city, has over 40 simultaneous shoots going on at any given time. So you can be sure that time lines are tight, and no one has time for cameras that don’t work. We’re optimistically hopeful. Source: NoFilmSchool Share This With The World!
