Cinema grading classes at Gafpa Gear
One of the great parts of the Kinefinity ecosystem is how independent it is. The ethos of the brand itself is about independence. If you can afford a cinema camera and chose to buy Kinefinity it means that you turned your back on offerings from more established camera companies. It means that you follow your own governor when it comes to things like inspecting image quality and making major purchases. I suspect that won’t always be the case if bigger distributors move in and the system stabilizes a bit more. For now, there are a lot of interested parties who’ve taken it upon themselves to inform others about this company and it’s excellent products, ahem.
One of my favorite companies in the Kinefinity world is Gafpa Gear (formerly Kinefinity Amsterdam), which is founded by a DP and distributes the cameras in northern Europe. Gafpa Gear has recently started a series of informative videos on how to work with Kinefinity footage. The above clip is the first part of an in-depth grading tutorial. Their YouTube channel has several other interesting clips, including the first one in this post, which uses an adapter to effectively turn the Mavo LF into a medium-format cinema camera.
Seeing high-quality material from dedicated professionals committed to spreading the word about these cameras is part of what makes following the brand so fun.
