It seems that every week multiple new digital cameras pop up on the scene. With so many coming out, it’s becoming harder to make a “buzz-worthy” camera. However every once in awhile something like Kinefinity’s new Mini S35 camera comes out and makes you take notice.


Even though the KineRAW mini looks almost suspiciously like a RED designed camera, it will probably be competing more with the Blackmagic Cinema Camera. 

Here are the current known specs for the camera:

  • Super 35mm CMOS Sensor
  • 12-bit Uncompressed CinemaDNG (Cineform is optional to a recorder they don’t make yet)
  • 2048 x 1080 // 1920 x 1080 // 1280 x 720
  • One 2.5″ SSD Slot
  • ISO: 80-10,240 — Base of ISO 800
  • Dynamic Range: 11.5 Stops
  • Electronic Canon or Interchangeable Kinefinity Mount
  • Monitoring: 720p with 2 HDMI Outputs
  • Optional Handgrip with Battery

The camera will cost under $6,000, likely somewhere between $3,000-$5,000. Not bad!
