Atomos has added a new product to the Ninja lineup — the Ninja V. Ninja V supports ProRes RAW across a variety of cameras alongside other features like a 5” 1,000-nit brightness HDR screen and 4Kp120 ProRes RAW recording. In addition, the Ninja V can view ProRes RAW images in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. The Ninja V includes touch-screen access to tools like waveforms, 1-1 magnification and focus peaking, allowing the ability to perfect the RAW video. The Ninja V then records the ProRes RAW data onto a removable AtomX SSDmini or other SSD drives. When shooting is complete, the drive is removed and connected to a computer via USB for immediate offload and editing.
ProRes RAW continues to build momentum in 2021 with over 20 cameras supporting the Atomos and ProRes RAW combination, cementing its position as the industry standard for RAW video capture. ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes. Atomos says 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 fully supported in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer, along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight and Grass Valley Edius.
