Kinefinity brings the new SONY E mounting adapter to TERRA camera. TERRA will be the first cinema camera with E mount, such short flange focal distance, except SONY camera. The E mounting adapter by Kinefinity features a breech-lock rotating counter-clockwise to lock, like Kine EF mounting adapter. The cine locking way fits video/cinematography system naturally.
It starts a new world with affordable high-end quality: more and more cine lens manufacturers are delivering affordable E-mount lenses with very high quality, like Fujifilm MK18-55, MK50-135 and more 3rd party Cine lenses.
Since E mount lenses and the mount itself are very compact natively, the system is in the right trend of lightweight/small world: drones, rigs, gimbals and stabilizers.
The SONY E mount as a brand new mount was launched with NEX mirrorless cameras in 2010. It is very compact mount with very short flange focal length as 18mm, so the E mount lenses can only be used on the camera with such short mount, and can not be used on other camera mount with some kind of adapter.
More and more lens manufacturers have been shipping lenses specific for E mount. Actually, Venice as Flagship cinema camera from SONY has a native E mount.
