Ninja V Now Records 4K Video up to 30fps in ProRes RAW from the Nikon Z 7II

Atomos has officially announced that the Nikon Z 7II now outputs and records 4K video up to 30fps using Apple ProRes RAW when combined with the Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder.

As a quick reminder, the Nikon Z 7II is the latest full-frame mirrorless camera in Nikon’s lineup, inheriting the standout features from its predecessors the Z 7 along with some exciting new enhancements such as Dual EXPEED 6 image-processing engine for precise Eye-Detection AF and Animal-Detection AF, subject tracking, superior dust and drip resistance for use in harsh environments and more.

The unit also offers expanded support for NIKKOR Z lenses while boasting support for 18 models including teleconverters. When combined with Atomos Ninja V, the Nikon Z 7II will output 4K UHD or full-HD 12-bit RAW.

These features are now readily available to Nikon Z 7II and Atomos Ninja V users who will just need to update their monitor-recorder with the latest firmware available on the Atomos website.

The Nikon Z 7, Z 6, Z 7II, and Z 6II cameras offer the ability to shoot video in N-Log, which is fully supported in the AtomHDR monitoring pipeline with the ability to add built-in 709 preview, custom 3D LUTs and LOG to HDR conversion for both monitoring and output.

The current Atomos firmware now adds the ability to monitor the RAW output as N-Log, to allow the use of existing N-Log 3D LUTs both on the Ninja but also in NLE applications where N-Log is now available as a RAW to Log conversion.

As the ProRes RAW eco-system expands, creators are seeking more controls in their editing software. To further support the format, Nikon has also announced that they will be updating the Nikon Z 7II and Z 6II and Nikon Z 7 and Z 6 firmware to support the enhanced ISO/exposure compensation metadata for the new Final Cut Pro controls, which will also feature in an upcoming Adobe Premiere Pro update.
