Atomos enables Apple ProRes RAW recording up to 120fps with the SIGMA fp
Fri 26, 06 2020
June 25, Melbourne, Australia: Atomos and SIGMA are today announcing RAW recording over HDMI with the fp mirrorless camera and Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder. Together the fp and Ninja V will record Apple ProRes RAW at up to DCI 4Kp24 or UHD 4Kp30 directly from the camera’s full-frame sensor. It will also be the world’s first mirrorless camera to record RAW over HDMI video in HD at 120fps for amazing high speed shots. ProRes RAW gives creators amazing creative control with flexibility to adjust the color and look of the video, while extending brightness and shadow detail. Footage can be finished in the highest possible quality and dynamic range for either HDR or SDR (Rec.709).
The SIGMA fp also becomes the smallest camera combination to record ProRes RAW, opening up a wide range of shooting options. The camera’s small size means you can shoot with the full flexibility of RAW almost anywhere. The fp body is perfect for mounting as a POV or crash camera, for use on gimbals or even worn on the body. Alternatively, with the addition of Ninja V, cage and other accessories, the fp can also be built out into a fully rigged cinema-style camera with the option to use a wide range of L-mount lenses natively, or PL mount, EF mount and many other lenses via the use of adapters.
The accurate 5” 1000nit HDR high brightness display of the Ninja V allows users to view the SIGMA fp RAW signal in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats for optimal exposure. The monitor also offers touchscreen access to tools like 1-1 magnification and peaking for accurate focus, plus waveform, vectorscope and false color to nail exposure for the perfect HDR or SDR shot.
Atomos CEO Jeromy Young said: “With SIGMA joining the Atomos RAW over HDMI family we now have an exciting option for filmmakers to shoot Apple ProRes RAW with a tiny full-frame camera that also excels in 120fps high frame rate shooting. This camera brings SIGMA’s unique approach to the photo industry into video and we are happy to be innovating together with them to enable the fp to shoot the most versatile RAW codec available. The Atomos Ninja V, SIGMA fp and ProRes RAW open up a whole range of creative opportunities for our customers and I can’t wait to see what users can do with it.”
The Ninja V can also record 422 ProRes and DNx video up to 4kp29.94 and 120p119.88 from the standard 8-bit HDMI output of the SIGMA fp. For reliability and affordability, ProRes RAW or standard video files are recorded to AtomX SSD mini SATA drives in the Ninja V.
SIGMA is the latest major company to announce support ProRes RAW over HDMI. ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers enormous latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail, making it ideal for HDR workflows. Both ProRes RAW, and the higher bandwidth, less compressed ProRes RAW HQ are supported. Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is supported in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere and Grass Valley Edius, along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront and FilmLight Baselight.
ProRes RAW recording requires the free SIGMA V2.00 firmware update for the fp available today, and the free AtomOS update for Ninja V which will be available in Summer 2020.
