Kinefinity MAVO LF mark2
The Kinefinity MAVO LF mark2 inherits the remarkable large format 36X24mm 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor which we have seen in the MAVO Edge 6K and the original MAVO LF mk1 before. The 36X24mm large format allows for a multitude of creative lensing options including S35 by means of cropping. MAVO mark2 adopts the MAVO Edge high-performance computing platform, integrating industry standard ports like independent dual SDI outputs with meta data and recording/encoding stunning images as Apple ProRes4444/XQ footage onto NVMe M.2 2280 SSD. The lightweight compact camera body with it’s streamlined workflow; MAVO LF mark2 provides more cinematographers with a professional and efficient filmmaking experience at a more affordable price than ever before!
The MAVO LF mark2 features the remarkable 6K full frame 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor from the popular MAVO Edge 6K and MAVO LF (mk1), maintaining high frame rates of up to 75fps at 6K Wide, 150fps at 4K Wide and has an amazing dual native ISO of 5120/800. The industry-standard ISO 800 is intended for shooting in normal scenes, while the second native ISO up to 5120 is perfect for low light scenes and with its superb new hardware it will obtain a clean image with high latitude and low noise, ideal for documentary filmmakers or those who favor available light during night shoots. Compared to MAVO LF, MAVO mark2 is capable to retain more highlight details and cleaner shadows, ideal for shooting under complex circumstances.
The Kinefinity MAVO LF mark2 offers more comprehensive lens options by introducing a new mount. In addition to the native KineMOUNT which is very convenient for quickly switching between mounting adapters including EF, PL and LPL adapters without tools, MAVO mark2 provides two new lens mounts: the Active Fixed PL Mount and Active Fixed E Mount. Users can install and detach the active mounts without extra flange distance calibration. The two active mounts feature a reliable cine-style locking mechanism. The existing E-mount that attaches to the KineMOUNT had two issues, namely the lack of electronic support for iris and image stabilization on electronic lenses, also due to the nature of the KineMOUNT and the short flange of the E-mount, the positive locking latch of the e-mount can prevent some lenses with big diameter being locked properly. The new native Fixed active E-mount fixes all of these issues.
MAVO LF mark2 with the Active E Mount can support most of modern and lightweight E-mount lenses. the new lens mount allows users to change the iris, focal length and focus of these electronic E lenses with in-camera control or manually, the lens optical stabilization can be activated if the lens has this option. Like the Active PL Mount, the Active E Mount displays lens metadata on monitors and saves them into the clip, bringing intuitive interaction on set and flexibility in post.
MAVO LF mark2 goes a step further with offering lens mount choices, embracing more modern lenses with its interchangeable mount design. MAVO mark2 can work smoothly with virtually all cine PL/LPL lens, DLSR EF lens and modern E mount lens, capturing images with more diversified styles.
Highly integrated body design, Advanced Processing power
A feature rich and Lightweight Camera Body: MAVO LF mark2 inherits the integrated body design of the MAVO Edge camera which has won the prestigious iF DESIGN AWARD 2021. The compact camera body only weighs 1.35kg(2.98lbs), equipped with a host of general control ports, dual SDI outputs embedded metadata and audio, and high-quality multi- channel audio recording by means oh phantom powered XLR and 3.5 inch stereo input. The camera has dual Kinemon ports for simultaneously using two Kinefinity Kinemon solutions like the highly praised Kinefnity EVF. Timecode and RS connections are present as well. Sdi output can be seperated from the kinemon signals with clean feeds or other 3D luts embedded.
As for power solutions, MAVO LF mark2 offers an innovative hybrid battery plate that supports standard 14.8V V-mount batteries and small BP-U type batteries.
Apple ProRes4444 Recording: MAVO LF mark2 has the powerful capability of directly recording high-quality clips in-camera, with industry standard visual losless codecs like 10 bit ProRes422 LT to 12 bit ProRes4444XQ. The advanced architecture and Recording media allows the MAVO mark2 to record and playback in full frame rates and resolutions at up to 6K Wide 96fps in ProRes4444XQ format.
Safe and Flexible Recording Media: The SSD slot of MAVO LF mark2 is based on PCIe, and the recommended recording media is the proprietary KineMAG Nano 1TB/2TB based on NVMe M.2 2280 SSD. KineMAG Nano SSD has two superior safety features: Read-only and RAID 5. It improves the safeness and robustness of the KineMAG Nano while copying or writing to the SSD at blazing fast speed in camera. With a universal USB-C port, KineMAG Nano allows offloading data to the workstation at a speed of up to 10Gbps with a single USB-C cable. Alternatively Kinefinity also offers Kinemag Nano enclosures to install your own cost effective NVME media!
Accessories and KIT
Kinefinity MAVO LF mark2 is compliant with the ultra-bright KineMON-5U2/7U2 touchscreen monitors and the KineEVF. All parameters of the camera can be displayed and adjusted on the monitors intuitively and conveniently; it also supports KineEVF2 OLED Viewfinder that presents accurate and sharp color images almost as if you use an optical viewfinder.
Regarding camera rigs, MAVO LF mark2 can be used in conjunction with the Movcam KineKIT-Edge with UPS baseplate, Tilta Camera Cage for MAVO Edge, and SmallRig Camera Cage Kit for MAVO Edge. Since the Edge line shares similar height and screw thread holes all accessories are interchangeable with the Edge cameras.
In addition, a new “Agile KIT” is released tailored for the elegant camera and includes a new carbon fiber top handle with rod support, a 2000nits KineMON-5U2 that can rotate 360 degrees with a special arm, a set of new dual- D and dual-C KineBAT99 batteries, and the safe and reliable KineMAG Nano 1TB SSD recording media. The feature rich MAVO mark2 with the “Agile KIT” is compact and always ready to shoot with!
