GEAR KINEFINITY TERRA 4K
with an upcoming firmware upgrade. It’s unfortunate we didn’t get to try the Raw option, but will as soon as it becomes available.

It records ProRes 422 in up to HQ, as well as 422LT all in 10-bit MOV, and will record compressed lossless KineRAW format in 12-bit soon,
baked in to the footage, so can be easily changed in post-processing. Using an ARRI-C LUT on some out-of-camera Log footage showed a very ARRI-like colour palette, which is no bad thing. Experiment away and the footage has lots of meat in it to allow you to push it around in post as much as you like. Getting the exposure right can be an issue when shooting any camera in Log, but the Terra 4K offers Raw RGB monitoring which means the waveform is measuring the Raw output, not the LUT version you’ll see on the screen. You can change the settings to see the waveform reflecting the LUT version, if you like. It’s this sort of thinking that shows Kinefinity has worked hard in making a professional-grade filmmaking
