Atomos just released Apple ProRes RAW recording from the LUMIX BGH1 with the latest firmware update AtomOS 10.63 for the Ninja V. When combined with the Ninja V the LUMIX BGH1 Box camera is now capable of recording 4K DCI ProRes RAW.
Panasonic LUMIX BGH1 is the new Cinema 4K Box style camera recently released, composed of a modular and miniature form factor. When combined with the Ninja V, it will record up to 4K DCI ProRes RAW and up to 3.7K anamorphic RAW. It’s designed for gimbal and drone shooting as well as some cinema production. Its Micro Four Thirds image sensor provides flexible lens options, anamorphic capture and dual native ISO, all using ProRes RAW.
The Ninja V and LUMIX BGH1 combination can also work in sync for multicamera productions, and this is facilitated by the LTC and Genlock inputs complemented with the Atomos UltraSync One wireless sync system.
Here’s a video shot with one:
The Ninja V allows users to monitor the RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5” 1000-nit 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 touch screen 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 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. 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.
