Atomos and SIGMA are today announcing RAW recording over HDMI with the fp mirrorless camera and Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder. Together the fp and Ninja V will record Apple ProRes RAW at up to DCI 4Kp24 or UHD 4Kp30 directly from the camera’s full-frame sensor. It will also be the world’s first mirrorless camera to record RAW over HDMI video in HD at 120fps for amazing high-speed shots.
Shoot with the full flexibility of RAW: The SIGMA fp also becomes the smallest camera combination to record ProRes RAW, opening up a wide range of shooting options.
The Ninja V advantage: Ninja V is the must have device for mirrorless cameras. Please inform your customers about the benefits of our Ninja V and the advantages it gives now in combination with the Sigma fp camera; view the SIGMA fp RAW signal in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10), touchscreen access to tools like 1-1 magnification and peaking for accurate focus, plus waveform, vectorscope and false color to nail exposure for the perfect HDR or SDR shot among others.
ProRes RAW the new standard: SIGMA is the latest major company to announce support ProRes RAW over HDMI. ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers enormous latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail, making it ideal for HDR workflows. Both ProRes RAW, and the higher bandwidth, less compressed ProRes RAW HQ are supported. Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is supported in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere and Grass Valley Edius, along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront and FilmLight Baselight.
ProRes RAW recording requires the free SIGMA V2.00 firmware update for the fp available today, and the free AtomOS update for Ninja V which will be available in Summer 2020.
As a reminder, there is currently a running promotion sale for the Ninja V and Pro Kit. The Ninja V is currently $499 and the Ninja Pro Kit, including AtomX SDI Module is $599.
