Sony Alpha 1 Support
Sony Alpha 1 will now be able to record 4.3K ProRes RAW video up to 60p with the Ninja V where additionally the 16-bit linear is converted to 12-bit log, meaning that there is a visually lossless process.
Sony FX3 support
Sony FX3 and Ninja V users can now benefit from 4.2K ProRes RAW recording at up to 60p. Similarly, to the Alpha 1 the 16-bit linear is converted to 12-bit log, meaning that there is a visually lossless process.
In addition to this with the FX3 and Ninja V users can use cropped metadata mode which provides a simple way to transform the RAW data to a 16:9 aspect ratio that closely represents the internally recorded 4K UHD files.
