Atomos Ninja V Adds ProRes RAW Capture to Fujifilm GFX 100 and Sigma fp
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, September 1, 2020 @ 07:30 PM (EST)

 

The latest firmware update for the Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder has been released, enabling ProRes RAW capture over HDMI with the Fujifilm GFX 100 and Sigma fp. Atomos has added ProRes RAW support to a number of cameras, including the Nikon Z6/Z7 and the new Sony a7S III.

The Ninja V can now record 12-bit 4K ProRes RAW video at up to 30p from the GFX 100. The update also enables 10-bit 422 ProRes and DNx 4K UHD capture up to 30p or 4K DCI at up to 24p. To allow RAW footage to be viewed, various monitoring modes have also been added.

For the Sigma fp, the update allows the Ninja V to capture 12-bit ProRes RAW at 4K DCI up to 24p or 4K UHD up to 30p. You can now also capture 12-bit ProRes RAW at 120p when recording at 1080p. There is also the option of recording 10-bit ProRes 422 and DNx at 30p and 120p at 4K UHD and 1080p resolutions, respectively. Again, multiple monitoring modes have been added for viewing RAW footage.
