6K RAW In-Camera KineMAX is capable of Capturing and Recording 6K RAW without external recorder. KineMAX is honoured as one of three cinema camera models in this planet. 6K RAW is recorded as KineRAW(.krw) codec which is compressed lossless RAW format developed by Kinefinity. For 4K and lower resolution, it can record Uncompressed CinemaDNG; for 3K and lower resolution, it can record Cineform RAW which is easy to be edited and graded in mainstream DI software.


6K RAW capturing and recording leaves very large room for reframing, trimming, and CG, especially for 4K delivery. At same time, it also features capturing and recording 6K, 4K, 3K, 2K, 1080p in both S35mm frame and crop mode: that means KineMAX can cover from 1080p to 6K, every mainstream resolution in one camera. KineMAX may be the most compact and powerful cinema camera for 6K&4K RAW capturing and recording now.

6K details and framing space is beyond imagination, > 18Million pixels in one frame: 9 times of Full HD/1080p, 2.25 times of UHD/3840×2160! Every single frame matches high-end DSLR RAW photo!


100fps SLOW-MO KineMAX has the power of capturing Slow-Mo up to 4K Wide 100fps . At HiSpeed S35, KineMAX supports 4K/3K/2K Wide Slow-Mo up to 100fps, while KineMAX supports 2K Wide to 144fps at HiSpeed M4/3. At same time, M4/3 (Crop mode) 4K Wide up to 48fps, S16mm (Crop Mode) 3K Wide to 60, 2K Wide up to 100fps.  As of undercrank/quick-mo, the lowest fps is down to 6fps under current firmware. You can set any custom sensor fps between lowest and highest fps, the accuracy is 0.001fps.

Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. This is cool and all, but dizzying. I haven’t even tried 4K yet, and my workstation will probably fire me when I do. Not to mention the cost of all these upgrades.
    I wish I could buy a camera system that I knew would be up to date for 7 or 8 years, but those days are gone.
