Atomos has just announced the development of Apple ProRes RAW recording from the latest full-frame mirrorless camera rolled out by Sony, the Alpha 1. This is all made possible with the Atomos Ninja V which will record pristine ProRes RAW images from the camera’s RAW 4.3K output up to 60fps.
Sony’s Alpha 1 combines high-resolution and high-speed performance, with a new 50.1MP full-frame stacked Exmor RSTM CMOS image sensor built with integral memory in combination with an upgraded BIONZ XRTM imaging processing engine. It also offers a wide dynamic range with 15+ stops for video.
The Alpha 1 and Ninja V combination allows for a compact rig set-up with a camera that breaks existing boundaries and unleashes extended creative possibilities to creators.
Users will benefit from the full flexibility offered by the ProRes RAW format as Atomos ensures that all the camera White Balance and ISO/Exposure Offset adjustments will be available within Final Cut Pro.
Content creators and filmmakers will be able to take advantage of these available adjustments and 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.
In addition to the efficient combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW file types, thus simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving.
The Ninja V and RAW recording also opens up the camera to the wider Atomos eco-system for enhanced on-set HDR and SDR monitoring. A video signal can be output from the Ninja V to the Atomos Sumo19, or the recently released NEON line of production monitors, for perfect HDR viewing by directors, clients, focus-pullers or any crew member who needs access to an accurate view on set.
