The MAVO LF sensor measures in at 36x24mm and can record 6K up to 75 fps. A new update reveals the MAVO LF has a Dual Base ISO of 800/5120 where the regular MAVO has a single base ISO of 800.
Currently, the camera can record ProRes or cDNG formats. Kinefinity’s RAW codec, KineRAW is currently unavailable and is expected to be available at the end of the year.
Just like the MAVO & Terra cameras, the cameras feature an Omni KineMOUNT which can be converted to PL, EF & Sony E mount.
Here’s a chart comparing the MAVO LF to the MAVO & Terra 4K.
