Atomos Brings ProRes RAW Recording to the Sony FX6

Sony FX6 owners just got another viable option to record high-quality video using the camera’s SDI output thus taking the available 16-bit linear RAW data directly to Atomos Shogun 7 monitor/recorder. The company has just released AtomOS 10.43 update for the Shogun 7 which now allows users to record 12-bit DCI-4K ProRes RAW video up to 60fps.

That way, content creators and filmmakers can directly benefit from the storage advantage of ProRes RAW, where the codec harnesses the ability to capture 12-bit RAW in the same file sizes as 10-bit 422 standard ProRes thus simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving.

Overall, this is another exciting feature added to the Sony FX6’s arsenal which has already proven to be a true cine workhorse on set. Sony’s latest cine camera combines a 4K full-frame Exmor R sensor with a BIONX XR engine while featuring dual native ISO for various shooting conditions and maximum flexibility in a variety of situations.

The PXW FX6 shoots 4K video up to 120 fps as well as 240 fps in HD using 10-bit, 4:2:2 XAVC-I, and XAVC-L recording. The camera also sports built-in electronic variable ND, S-Cinetone, S-Log3, and HLG gamma profiles.

It’s also worth mentioning that the FX6 is the first compact, full-frame camera to offer UHD 4K 4:2:2 capture in the high-quality yet efficient XAVC-I codec. It also enables you to choose from a range of professional XAVC Intra and XAVC Long codecs at bit rates ranging from 35 to 600 Mb/s. Now, you can record to ProRes RAW as well.

To enable this functionality, Atomos Shogun 7 users first need to download the latest AtomOS 10.43 update from the Atomos’ website here.
