NAB 2014 - Blackmagic Production & Cinema Camera modifications by Kinefinity

Our friends at newsshooter.com  spotted one of the craziest modifications I have ever seen. The “Kine+ modification device” is made by Kinefinity, the mother company behind the KineRAW mini camera. Priced at $999 for the 2.5K cinema camera and $1499 for the 4K production camera (prices only for the modifications) this conversion claims to make the user experience of the BM cameras the one we wanted it to be. Mind you that the camera must be sent to China for this (probably) irreversible modification.

See the video below made by newsshooter.com technical editor Matt Allard:

Gotta love those Chinese guys from Kinefinity! By creating this extention product, they are just saying: “BM cameras miss a lot great features that we DO provide in our Kinemini/max camera” :D

Great. I hope that they also provide in the future a conversion for the URSA where they switch the fast compact flash with an SSD raid. Attaching an atomos samurai will make the URSA too heavy.

I think this mod misses the boat entirely. Wireless start/stop is nothing anyone was craving, sound sync is something pluralize solves in seconds, and the cost saving for an unreliable HDMI monitor connection is more than offset by the price of the mod.

I’d rather get a Gold/V Mount batt rig as it’ll balance the camera on your shoulder better. This “breadbox” mod will make balance all the more front heavy.

A more useful mod would’ve been an integrated battery, XLR, built in external sound level control, and if you really wanted something to set it apart, built in ND/IR Filters.

In all it doesn’t seem like it was conceived by cameramen.
