Kinefitiy MAVO Edge 6K, a powerful new full-frame cinema camera. Equipped with a 6K full-frame 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor capable of shooting in 6K 75fps and 4K 150fps based on the high-performance computing platform of the MAVO Edge, the camera features dual native ISO (800/5120) and excellent highlights under various sensitivity settings. MAVO Edge 6K has an internal motorized full-spectrum e-ND filter(0.6-2.4), and integrates industry-standard ports and dual SSD media slots, capable of recording Apple ProRes4444/XQ and uncompressed RAW onto recording media based on NVMe M.2 2280 SSD. Weighing at only 3.6lbs, this compact and lightweight camera boasts powerful performance and versatility as it adapts to various demanding shooting scenarios. Like other Kinefinity cine cameras, MAVO Edge 6K brings natural color, pleasing skin tones, low noise, high dynamic range, and stunning details in an organic and delicate way.
Outstanding Highlight Performance with Stunning Image Quality
The Kinefitiy MAVO Edge 6K is the latest full-frame camera from Kinefinity since the release of MAVO Edge 8K, and it employs a full-frame 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor that not only shows cleaner images but also provides wider viewing angles, shallower depth of field, and more immersive presence. The advanced color processing architecture from the MAVO Edge platform creates images with low noise, high latitude, and wide color gamut, then brings stunning details, organic images with exceptional quality. In addition, the full-frame 6K CMOS sensor is perfectly paired with OLPF FF3 optical low pass filter that adopts a more complex and higher performance crystal process to“eliminate” aliasing/artifacts while keeping very sharp images.
The Kinefinity MAVO Edge 6K is equipped with dual native ISO, rated at 800 and 5120, as the second native ISO up to 5120 is perfect for low light scenes to obtain a clean image with high latitude and low noise, ideal for documentary filmmakers or those who favor available light during night shoots.
MAVO Edge 6K outperforms its predecessor of MAVO LF a lot when it comes to highlight performance. At the industry standard ISO 800, the default highlight of the Edge 6K is 6.0 stops, capturing more highlight details to get a more cinematic look. Switch to Cine EI mode for more of a traditional cinema camera experience and highlight stops will adjust automatically as the EI changes. While using Cine EI mode, the second base native ISO 5120 is still activated when you go past 1600 EI.
Apple ProRes Recording Codec and Uncompressed RAW
Apple ProRes is a popular intermediate codec created by Apple Inc. Nearly all post-production software in the industry supports editing and color correction with Apple ProRes.Compared to RAW and other intermediate codecs, Apple ProRes achieves faster workflow in post-production since the images already went through a debayer process, especially working with workstations running Apple M1 Pro/Max/Ultra chips. It makes proxy-free editing and color correction quickly and efficiently, saving a significant amount of time in post-production.
The uncompressed RAW is not debayered in-camera instead, and it is stored in the CinemaDNG format, preserving all the image data captured by the sensor. Theoretically, it provides the maximum potential for color correction in post-production.Uncompressed RAW footage demands high bandwidth bitrate processing.
The MAVO Edge 6K is equipped with a dual SSD slot based on PCIe-3.0 and its recording media, blazing-fast KineMAG Nano 1TB, is based on NVMe M.2 2280 SSD, ensuring storing uncompressed RAW stably and safely.
More Intuitive KineOS Firmware
The Kinefinity MAVO Edge 6K is implemented with the latest KineOS 7.0 firmware, which has a redesigned user interface, and expected touch and tapping interaction with the camera. The new KineMON-5U2 and 7U2 with touchscreen monitors help to improve the user’s interactive experience and lower the learning curve.
The new interface design allows the user to control the entire functionality of the camera using only the touchscreen monitor.
Frame rate, shutter angle, ISO, aperture, ND strength, color temperature, LUTs, and audio levels can all be adjusted via touchscreen control, making it easy for the cinematographer to set up the parameters quickly.
Compact Camera Body with Internal e-ND filter
The compact camera body of the MAVO Edge 6K only weighs 1.6kg(3.6lbs), and it is equipped with a full-spectrum e-ND filter, dual SDI ports, multiple control ports, and multi-channel audio tracks, as well as powerful wired and wireless functions. The monitoring image from two proprietary video ports is independently displayed from SDI outputs at the rear. The video ports can be connected to the Kinefinity touchscreen monitor and micro-OLED viewfinder.
