Atomos and Sigma have enabled RAW recording over HDMI with the fp mirrorless camera and Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder.
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. According to the companies, it will also be the world’s first mirrorless camera to record RAW over HDMI video in HD at 120fps.
The Sigma fp is now the smallest camera combination to record ProRes RAW.
The 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 colour.
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. ProRes RAW or standard video files are recorded to AtomX SSD mini SATA drives in the Ninja V.
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.”
