EOSHD reports about new samples of the Chinese KineRAW cinema camera. A probably more affordable alternative to the Arri Alexa that looks equally if not more bulky and also records at 12bit 2K RAW.

This is a situation you simply can’t have. If that backup dies the work (and money) that went into that shooting day dies with it.
