A free firmware update from Atomos adds ProRes RAW to the Alpha 1, FX3, Lumix BGH1, and Sigma fp L.
A free firmware update from Atomos enables ProRes RAW recording with the Sony Alpha 1 and Cinema Line FX3, Panasonic Lumix BGH1, and new Sigma fp L.
AtomOS 10.63 has landed and brings RAW support to four flagship cameras. Users will also have access to white balance and ISO metadata for Final Cut Pro X.
These updates make the Ninja V the perfect pairing for small form factor cameras that are taking the market by storm. Filmmakers are leveraging the versatility and toolset of the Ninja V to maximise their image capturing capability, resulting in deliverables that were just a fantasy only a year ago.
RAW has changed the game for independent creators and small production teams. Recording 4K RAW in 12-bit log is now open to shooters in the field without the need for a cumbersome rig or large team.
Videographers like Cornwall-based Tommy Rowe are now able to deliver truly cinematic projects in DCI 4K or anamorphic with the Lumix BGH1. Watch his short film KERNOW – made for Atomos – below.
Sony Alpha 1 and Ninja V
4.3K ProRes RAW recording at up to 60p. Additionally the 16-bit linear is converted to 12-bit log for a visually lossless process and easily manageable file sizes.
Sony FX3 and Ninja V
Take advantage of recording 4.2K ProRes RAW at up to 60p. As with the Alpha 1, the 16-bit linear is converted to 12-bit log. In addition, the cropped metadata mode is a simple way to transform RAW data to a 16:9 aspect ratio that closely represents the internally recorded 4K UHD files.
Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 and Ninja V
Users will now be able to record 4K DCI ProRes RAW and 3.7K Anamorphic. To benefit from these features, users will need to update their camera to firmware version 2.0.
SIGMA fp L and Ninja V
Once the camera has begun shipping Ninja V users and SIGMA fp L users will benefit from 4Kp30 ProRes RAW recording.
