A couple of concurrent Ninja V updates have been released by Atomos.
Atomos' popular 5 "1000nit recorder and monitor, the Ninja V, is back with two notable updates.
First, the company added RAW over HDMI recording for the Fujifilm GFX100, allowing the Ninja V to record 12-bit 4K ProRes RAW at up to 30p. This is big news for those looking to add a RAW workflow to the large format camera. Alternatively, 10-bit 422 ProRes and DNx shooters can record up to 4K 60p on the GFX100.
If you have not already done so, be sure to update the GFX100 with firmware 2.01 to enable the functions. Combining the Ninja V with the GFX100, a large format mirrorless camera, makes a solid RAW combo for shooters.
In addition, Atomos now offers RAW image acquisition with the Sigma fp. No film school reported the update of Blackmagic Design with its Video Assist recorders supporting Sigma fp at 120p with BRAW, and now Atomos follows with ProRes RAW.
The Ninja V can record Apple ProRes RAW with 4K DCI 24p or 4K UHD up to 30p across the entire width of the sensor. You can also record RAW in HD at 120 fps via HDMI. The footage can then be completed in either HDR or SDR (Rec. 709). Similar to the GFX100, shooters can record 422 ProRes and DNx videos at 4K by merging the 8-bit HDMI output of the Sigma fp.
Both updates fall under AtomOS 10.53, which is now available on the Atomos support page.
