    I'm pretty sure service happens in Berlin too. Maybe other countries as well.

    Further, the warranty is automatically 3 years (free of charge), as opposed to RED which outrageously asks an additional $6000 for two years.

    Think about it, you could buy a Terra 4K with a 3 year warranty for less than the price of a service contract from RED for 2 years. Kind of mind boggling.

    My guess is that their target market is more BollyWood(and China, vietnam, etc..) than HollyWood. BollyWood and China are also loaded with UMP's because of the price/perf.
    In the Western world we watch movie's shot in 8k, 6.5k, 3.4k mostly on 2kDCI, in those countries they watch their local movie's shot in 6k or 4k on 2kDCI.
    Or we watch it highly compressed in FHD or UHD on Netflix, Amazon, HBO, etc...
    Most viewers won't see the difference when something is shot on RED8k and ARRI65 vs. UMP or Kinefinity and displayed on 2kDCI in theaters or highly compressed network quality FHD or UHD.

    Looks like they are picking up the democratization charge that RED left behind as camera prices went from $18k to $29k to $49k to $79k. RED has clearly proved they can build a high-quality camera, but with a stiff rise in cost/price.

    Big shot DP's want to shoot high priced camera's and that is not only because of the quality.

    The lens set is made by Nisi, or at least it will be made by Nisi... I owned a Terra 6K up until a few weeks ago. It's a solid camera, I just wish KRW was more widely accepted. I'll probably pick up a Mavo for the price and codecs.

    No word on whether the terrible monitor lag is improved or the terrible monitor quality. Think red one monitoring debayer quality and 6frames of lag on all outputs. Pretty much deal breakers despite otherwise nice cameras. Hopefully they have addressed this on mavo but not holding my breath...

    Btw kinefinity cameras seem to be running on Linux I think. Saw one freeze up on what looked like an xwindows startup once.

    "UMP" is shorthand for "Ursa Mini Pro", if anyone else was also wondering.

    The lower right hand corner of the LCD has a number which appears to be a ND filter value. If the Kinefinity Mavo has build-in ND filtering, this will make the camera more attractive to potential users.


    Enjoy
