    Has anyone actually bought one? Are they any good? Just curious. I know a lot of people talk about the specs but I have not met anyone who owns one. There seems to be no USA place to rent them, nor does Kinefinity offer demo units on a short term period.

    They do have this list http://www.kinefinity.com/kineteam/kine-linked/?lang=en
    However all the US based one seem to have either closed or no longer have the Kinefinity cameras (most switched to DSLRs it seems)

    Nope, the 5K has been delayed so long. So I am going UMP route.
    Also I do find it strange that nobody posted any side by side vs any other camera. (especially when one guy had a RED epic dragon next to it, and then surprisingly lost the footage, so he could not do a side by side.)

    yeah, There's a lot of things that worry me about it but it still peaks my interest. I have a Usra Mini 4k right now but not sure what I'm getting next. There's not rentals anywhere of it. I asked for a loaner unit to test before buying, if that's a no, then I won't even consider buying it.

    I had a KineMini 4K in early 2015 and the images were nice, but it was a bit of a pain to use. The toggle wheel, clicking around...just nothing as effortless as a Blackmagic touchscreen.

    Two things that really bothered me about the KineMini 4K are:

    (1) The HFRs had a bit too much chroma noise/artifacts in them.

    (2) The transcoding took too long. You had to shoot KineRAW at times and then transcode that footage via KineStation to something else. (There is other software now.)

    (They have dropped CineForm and CinemaDNG from the Terras and only offer KR and PR.)

    I also had an URSA 4K at the time and there was just no comparison.

    Yeah, I came here after seeing the Philip Bloom video...

    After years of lurking around, it looks like Kinefinity is about to break big. We'll see if they can pull it off...
