Atomos Releases Full Free Ninja V Update To Enable 5.9K Apple ProRes RAW Recording For the Panasonic LUMIX S1H

A lot of new exciting things are happening with Atomos. Atomos has recently announced that ultra-high resolution RAW video from a full-frame mirrorless camera is now available. They also announced the launch of Pre-Release Beta for Ninja V users to try out on their Panasonic LUMIX S1H  and the new full firmware update for the Ninja V


Jake Fruia of Indie Shoot gives an abundance of information and resources to check out about the new exciting news. See some highlights below from his article below. 

Now Ninja V and Panasonic LUMIX S1H users will be able to record 

  • 12-bit RAW
    The Ninja V captures the unprocessed highly detailed 12-bit RAW signal files directly from the full frame sensor of the S1H over HDMI at up to 5.9K/29.97p in Full-frame, or 4K/59.94p in Super35.

  • Anamorphic RAW
    Ninja V and S1H can now be used as an A-camera or smaller B-camera on an anamorphic RAW production.

  • Improved color pipeline
    LUMIX S1H ProRes RAW files recorded to the Ninja V can now benefit from an improved color pipeline in Apple Final Cut Pro X.



"Ninja V advantage
The Ninja V allows users to accurately monitor the RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5” 1000nit brightness HDR screen. Setup is simple when the camera is attached with perfectly tuned color settings applied automatically. Users can then view the RAW image accurately in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. The Ninja V offers touchscreen access to tools like waveforms, 1-1 magnification and focus peaking, allowing them to perfect their RAW video. The Ninja V then records the ProRes RAW data onto a removable AtomX SSDmini or other SSD drive. When shooting is complete the drive is removed and connected to a computer via USB for immediate offload and editing."
