RAW comes to the Panasonic DC-S1H.

With some setbacks, Panasonic and Atomos have released firmware updates so that the Panasonic LUMIX DC-S1H RAW can record externally. The S1H receives firmware version 2.1 and Atomos has released beta firmware 10.52 for the Ninja V.

The firmware was originally scheduled to be released on May 25, but was delayed due to a technical issue. With the Atomos firmware in beta form, the company is asking anyone who wants to download it to email the software. The only limitation is that Atomos does not currently support the anamorphic Super 35mm mode.

Supported RAW formats:

  • 5.9 KB (5888 x 3312) full screen 16: 9 at 23.98, 25, 29.97 fps – 12 bit
  • 4K (4128 x 2176) Super 35mm 17: 9 @ 23.98, 25, 29.97, 50, 59.94 fps 12-bit
  • 3.5K (3536 x 2656) Super 35mm anamorphic 4: 3 at 23.98, 25, 29.97, 50 fps 12-bit (not available)

The well-known recording functions such as waveform monitor, vectorscope, zebra and others can be used with RAW output. While recording ProRes RAW, Ninja V V-Log or Rec 709 can be selected in the live view. In addition, Panasonic has released a new LUT for the Ninja V that you can use to do this Color adjustment of the classification with V-Log / V-Gamut2.

The final version of the Atomos software with anamorphic 3.5K is expected to be released in August. You can download the Panasonic software here and find the Atomos version here.
