Full Frame / Large Format CMOS Sensor
The Mavo LF uses a completely new 6K CMOS imaging sensor with over 14 stops of latitude for detailed, cinematic images. 6K acquisition allows you the creative control to crop and manipulate your image when delivering in 4K, or to downsample to very sharp 4K images with a low noise floor. While its large format 36mm x 24mm sensor gives superb low light, depth of field and dynamic range for detailed and cinematic images.
6K ProRes and Raw recording to Internal SSD's
Mavo LF allows for several raw recording options, CinemaDNG or .KRW files at either 3:1, 5:1 or 7:1 compression for pain free post production. You also get the option to record in all the flavours of Prores up to Prores 444XQ for projects where raw recording is not necessary. All of this is recorded internally onto 7mm SSD's. Removing the need for expensive and large external recorders.
> 14 stops with Dual Native ISO
Mavo LF uses a whole-new large format 6K CMOS image sensor featuring a Dual Native ISO of 800/5120. This allows it to capture low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environments easily. Opening up a whole new world of potential for filmmakers looking to push the boundaries of what is possible in their productions.
High Frame Rates at High Resolutions
With 6k recording up to 75fps, 4K up to 150fps (in S35) and 2K up to 290fps (in S16) in either Prores or CinemaDNG raw, Mavo's frame rates certainly don't disappoint. The frame rate can also be specified exactly to an accuracy of 0.001fps. These frame rates can be quickly changed on the fly with the use of presets, changing sensor crop, frame rate, resolution, shutter speed and codec with just the push of a button. This makes the Mavo LF very fast to operate for solo operators, as well as providing reassurance that your settings are exactly how you want them.
Compact Modular Design
Despite the high performance of the Mavo LF, the physical size of the camera is remarkably small. Plus coming in at just 990g, the core of the camera is not only small, its light as well. This means the Mavo LF is perfectly suited to gimbal and drone operators looking for the highest quality in the smallest package.
With the addition of the Sidegrip, Kineback-W and interchangeable lens mounts, Mavo is a very modular platform. Enabling you to customise the camera to your exact requirements. The whole lineup for Kinefinity (Terra 4K, Mavo & Mavo LF) has the exact same physical dimensions, ensuring compatibility of accessories across the range.
Interchangeable lens mounts
The Mavo LF ships with a KineMOUNT. This proprietary mount is used to attach a variety of adapters, so you can use the lenses of your choice. The KineMOUNT is designed to be light with active electronic contacts, allowing it to work with PL mounting adapter with /i tech and new cordless EF mounting adapter, EF mounting adapter with KineEnhancer, Nikon F mounting adapter, Sony E adapter, PL/EF mounting adapters with electronic NS, and more.
Both MAVO and MAVO LF can shot high frame rates at 6K resolution, with the same superior image quality. Both cameras give you more than 14 stops of latitude, pleasing skin tones and shadow details which are preserved perfectly. With 6K 3:2 aspect ratio, in addition to the conventional 16:9 and 17:9 standard aspect ratio, the CMOS sensor can also provide a variety of image formats, such as 4:3 & 6:5 S35 anamorphic shooting. Even open gate 6016×4016 is an option, recording up to 24 million pixels!
Smooth Post-workflow: ProRes444 and Compressed cinemaDNG
Mavo LF allows for either Prores or Raw recording to give you a range of codecs suitable for editing and colour grading to simplify the workflow and provide the maximum room for post-processing.
It’s capable of Apple ProRes, up to ProRes4444XQ in 12 bit and Prores 422 HQ in 10 bit or compressed Cinema DNG with a compression ratio which can be set to 3:1, 5:1, or 7:1. These CinemaDNG files are supported by Davinci Resolve natively, so you can directly import, edit and grade the CinemaDNG footage shot by Mavo in Davinci Resolve. No matter which compression ratio you choose, 3:1, 5:1 or 7:1, CinemaDNG is able to achieve the maximum quality images and allow the most flexibility for your colourist in post-production.
Wireless Camera: KineBACK-W on DarkTower
After inserting a wireless card (based on DarkTower platform) into the new KineBACK-W, Mavo and Mavo LF turn into a wireless camera: enabling wireless video transmission and wireless lens control (with supported Movcam systems). This greatly simplifies working with the camera and the accessories, with a reliable and durable wireless connection. The wireless video can work with 2000ft/3000ft based on different wireless cards(DT2000/DT3000).
