As hinted during yesterday’s launch presentation, the Panasonic S1H is getting full-frame RAW over HDMI in the near future. This was confirmed earlier today by Atomos, who announced their co-development with Panasonic for RAW over HDMI from the brand new Lumix S1H to the Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR monitor-recorder.
The even better news here is that the upcoming RAW update will be available free on the Ninja V when released by Panasonic.
“We are very proud of continuing to develop new ground-breaking technology with a company of the caliber of Panasonic. We are both highly committed to the democratisation of filmmaking for creators, and the ability to transmit RAW over HDMI from the S1H to a Ninja V is a major leap forward in this endeavour.” Said Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO.
As the world’s first full-frame mirrorless camera capable of 6K internal video, the Panasonic S1H combines the quality of professional cinema-grade video cameras with the size and photo capability of a mirrorless, making it the perfect companion with the Atomos Ninja V.

With the upcoming addition of Raw over HDMI, the already impressive video capabilities of the Panasonic S1H make it even more appealing. The camera can do 4K/60p, Full HD/180fps slow-motion, offers Anamorphic recording, Dual Native ISO and in-body image stabilization. Read more about the features of the Lumix S1H in this post here.

“The leading brand of external monitor-recorders is definitely Atomos. Both companies have a very good relationship and we have been providing 4:2:2 10bit HDMI output recording for the Lumix GH series for years. We are very proud to be developing RAW output via HDMI with Atomos for the S1H.” Said Panasonic at their launch event in LA.
Added Young: “Our advancements in screen technology now allows creators to accurately monitor RAW video in real-time as it would be viewed in the home or cinema for perfect preservation of creative intent. Our pristine custom Atomos HDR screens are second to none in colour accuracy and representation of brightness from RAW signals. When combined, these advantages create a dream workflow for filmmakers.”
