Panasonic S5 5.9K ProRes RAW Recording Now Available with the Ninja V

Atomos has just released a free firmware update for the Ninja V which enables up to 5.9K full-frame ProRes RAW recording from the new LUMIX S5, Panasonic’s latest hybrid full-frame mirrorless camera.

With the AtomOS 10.55 update, the Ninja V is now capable of recording up to 5.9K30p, 4K60p as well as 3.5K50p when combined with the LUMIX S5. This update also makes shooting with anamorphic lenses, Ninja V, and S5 possible by enabling a 3.5K Super 35 Anamorphic 4:3 RAW mode (3536×2656).

The LUMIX S5 inherits a range of professional features from its elder brother, the flagship Panasonic S1H. Combined with the Ninja V, the camera is perfectly suited to handheld, shoulder-mounted, gimbal, Steadicam, and in vehicle production.

In addition to this, the LUMIX S5 packs the essence of Panasonic’s conventional S Series cameras in a compact, lightweight magnesium alloy full die-cast body with effective heat dispersion for stable long recording times.

The S5 and Ninja V combo provides a powerful cost-effective and compact-sized setup to seasoned videographers and enthusiasts alike.

The AtomOS 10.55 can be downloaded from the Atomos website. It’s also worth noting that you need to update your LUMIX S5 to firmware 2.0 to take advantage of this functionality.
