Personally not had good experience with the Kineback-W
The first two they sent me were faulty with bad sdi connectors. The support they offered made me a little sceptical about the quality control of this particular product.. I believe that this particular unit is built by Movcam. Just look at the facebook groups and you’ll see allot of people…[Read more]
I’m in the same boat and having the similar thoughts.
I’ve only had the Terra 4K for a few months now and am thinking of trading up..
As rental is nonexistent where i live. I looked at the Terra 4k as a relatively low cost trial to see if i actually liked theses cameras in use.
Now that i know i really do like them and the trade in is not a bad…[Read more]
In this video he times the bootup at 25 seconds. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYeMk6w4kcU
When talking about the Kinegrip side handle, he mentions that it has a easily accessible sleep button..
I’m assuming this is just a duplicate of the power button on the main body but could be wrong.
I’ve not seen or heard anyone else mention a sleep…[Read more]
Good to hear bitnaut! Congrats on the F65
I’ve managed to get replies on wechat and facebook messenger to ask why i haven’t had any responses to my last two email enquiries but all i get is a “Sorry, My colleague will reply to you by email shortly” etc..
still no email. Sounds like i need to get on the phone.
looking more closely, The side grip does have a unique sleep button function..
I chose not to order the side grip as i’m looking to keep the camera as light and compact as possible.
I really wish that button was also on the body or or a single push of the power button put it into a low power sleep mode.
Is anyone able to say if it works this way?
I hear ya man.. I’m at my wits end with their lack off customer service.
Unfortunately i’m not sure where else to turn besides maybe buying used.. But that’s not exactly easy from New Zealand either.
Give it a few more days, my cancelled EF Mount order took just over a full week to show up on my account.
I really want to believe that they are…[Read more]
Still waiting on my Terra 4k..
Three weeks ago i decided to cancel my order for the Active ND and standard EF Mount. They were pretty quick to process the refund. It took about a week for it to clear my paypal.
That review certainly doesn’t fill me with a whole lot of confidence in Kinefinity. What’s really shaking my nerves is how slowly this…[Read more]
Cheers, Good to know.
Yeah i get the impression they are pretty slammed trying to fill orders on Terra while also trying to launch the Mavo. I guess they are setting ambitious/optimistic delivery targets.
Anyway, Hopefully only a couple of weeks away.
Just wondering if anyone else here is patiently waiting on an order and weather they are experiencing the same series of continually missed dates and delayed responses as myself..?
It’s been 12 weeks since i put in my order for a Terra 4k and 3 times Kinifinity sales have given me a new estimated shipping date. They haven’t bothered responding to…[Read more]
Looks pretty good to me. Will be sure to give it a try once my Terra arrives!
All good. I asked the same question of Philip Bloom when i was investigating my options as i’d seen that he’d reviewed both the Kessler and Rhino. He made a very compelling argument for the Rhino. Glad i took his advice.
I used to own an edelkrone slider with the intention of adding the motion control kit but was never very confident in the sliders stability. The compact extending design is clever but feels a bit wobbly.
The motion control components seemed bitsy and over complicated.
The Kessler looked really good. but far bulkier and way more than i was…[Read more]
They got back to me but didn’t really answer my question other than to say they don’t know weather the Tilta cables would work.
They also offered to add a ctrl cable to my order but i’m not sure they understand that i want to use it with a Tilta handle..
My order already contains the shoulder kit with wooden side handle and ctrl cable.. Not sure…[Read more]
This is probably a long shot question.
Does anyone know what kind of external control protocol the ctrl port on the terra bodies use?
I have the Tilta Nucleus-M follow focus set and would love to be able to use the rec trigger of the nucleus grip to start and stop recording.
Tilta sell an arri 7pin lemo to 4 pin red dsmc1 or a dsmc2. any chance…[Read more]
Has anyone powered an evf or monitor via the KineBACKs DC out port? not the D-tap but the lower side one.
If so, will powering the camera on/off also power on/off the evf?
What kind of connector does kinefinity supply with the KineBACK? the store lists it as
“Power output port is a 4-pin MOCO socket. A power cord is free of charge when shipping…
Corie replied to the topic Five specific questions before ordering my Terra4K! in the forum Kinefinity™ General 2 years, 7 months ago
I pulled the trigger and ordered just over a month ago but research and preparation continues 😉
On SSDs, I was able to get two Samsung 860 evos at half price recently. in theory the write speed is only slightly less than the 860 pro.
According to the list i found on this forum of shooting modes tested with the kinemax using an older Samsung…[Read more]
Never mind, google seems to have given me my answer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hHWpdQaA69c
If the Veydras are fine on Fs7 super 35 sensor then the Terra 4k should be sweet. Would still love to see it put to the test if anyone is able!
Hey all, Soon to be Terra 4k owner looking for advice.
Just wondering if anyone has tried the Veydra mini primes in E mount on the Terra 4k?
I know that they are designed to cover a four thirds sensor but given that the sensor in the Terra 4k isn’t that much larger, i’m wondered if these might be an option without vignetting?
given the…[Read more]
