Atomos has recently announced up to DCI 4Kp60 Full-Frame ProRes RAW Recording From Sony’s FX6 Camera and Shogun 7. Check out some highlights from Atomo's Press Release below covering the new and exciting news.
Melbourne, Australia – 17 November, 2020: Atomos is delighted to announce Apple ProRes RAW recording support for Sony’s new FX6 professional camera with full-frame sensor; which natively outputs RAW over SDI. This is all made possible with the Atomos Shogun 7 which will record pristine ProRes RAW images at up to DCI 4Kp60. The resulting images have amazing detail and a high degree of latitude to utilize in post-production - optimal for HDR finishing or to give greater flexibility in SDR (Rec.709).
The Shogun 7 & FX6 combination
Recording over SDI from the FX6 to the Shogun 7 extends the performance of the class leading professional camera by taking 16bit linear RAW data from its state-of-the-art Exmor R™ sensor and recording it in the flexible and efficient ProRes RAW format. Recorded with log 12bit color depth, corresponding to over 68 billion color graduations. FX6’s standard professional interface of 12G-SDI and SDI RAW output direct from the main camera body allows for a very powerful professional combination when used with the Atomos Shogun 7.
Content creators and filmmakers also benefit from the storage advantage of ProRes RAW, where the codec harnesses the ability to capture 12bit RAW in the same file sizes as 10bit 422 standard ProRes. In addition to their ground-breaking combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes
RAW files are smaller than other RAW file types – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving.
Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO, said: “I’m thrilled to be continuously working with the team at Sony to bring this to life and to add another of Sony’s camera to our ProRes RAW ecosystem. The flexibility and convenience of ProRes RAW makes the FX6 and Shogun 7 a perfect combination for any filmmaker seeking perfect colors and amazing latitude in post.”
