Here's a selection of footage shot on MAVO LF from an actual production. The footage was shot with the goal of achieving a certain look, therefore we provide the LUTs which the DP selected for each shot as well as a note from the DP. Please consider both when testing the footage as it may lead to strange results if you use a different LUT right away.

The LUTs were used as reference during production for what the final result should look like, they are by no means perfect. Whenever you see "+1" it means that the footage was underexposed by 1 stop on purpose making use of the camera's great low light performance and allowing for more room in the highlights.

Lens: MAVO Prime 35mm T2.0

Camera: Kinefinity MAVO LF

Resolution: 3840x2160

Codec: ProRes 4444

ISO: 500 | WB: 5600°K

LUT: KF_K2383PrintD55_.75_+1

Description of the LUT: Emulates the Kodak 2383 print film stock, which offers extreme contrast and deep blacks. The emulation was reduced by 25%, and the LUT adds one stop of exposure to offer more highlight latitude, since the Mavo performs well in shadow areas.

Note from the DP: For this scene we were recreating a dark, cinematic look, influenced by gangster movies like The Godfather or heist movies like Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels.

Lens: MAVO Prime 75mm T2.0

Camera: Kinefinity MAVO LF

Resolution: 3840x2160

Codec: ProRes 4444

ISO: 500 | WB: 6400°K

LUT: KF_FujiVD_+1

Description of the LUT: Emulates the Fuji Vivid film stock, which offers extreme high contrast and saturated blue and green colors. The LUT adds one stop of exposure to offer more highlight latitude, since the Mavo performs well in shadow areas.

Note from the DP: This scene is a cutaway/flashback from the previous scene, so it called for a similar look but not the exact same treatment. Direct sunlight already brought a lot of contrast to the image so the contrast of the print film stock was not needed.

Lens: MAVO Prime 25mm T2.1

Camera: Kinefinity MAVO LF

Resolution: 3840x2160

Codec: ProRes 4444

ISO: 1600 | WB: 5600°K

LUT: GAFPA_ETTL+1

Description of the LUT: Based on the KC_NEUTM LUT, Kinefinity's standard conversion to the REC709 Video look. Offers bright, saturated colors and a flatter contrast curve. This LUT adds one stop of exposure to offer more highlight latitude, since the MAVO LF performs well in shadow areas. ("ETTL +1" = Expose To The Left, by one stop)

Note from the DP: The goal was to recreate a cheesy workout video from the late 90s / early 2000s, so a standard video look and saturated colors was appropriate. Further work on the video look in post production color grading was planned, but for monitoring on set this standard LUT was close enough.

LUT: KF_FujiET_0

Note from the DP: This shot is part of a parody board game commercial from the 80s. The intended final image is a colorful video look. For monitoring on set, this standard video look was a good start.

Note from the DP: This shot is an introduction shot to the parody commercial, but is intended to mislead the audience to think that it's part of a short film. Therefore a cinematic film look was chosen that was not too far from the standard video look.
