Panasonic has officially announced its raw video features for the Panasonic S5 IIX (buy here). As expected, there’s no raw recording internally, with both ProRes RAW and Blackmagic RAW support being provided by external recorders using raw over HDMI output. Raw support was always expected to come to the Panasonic S5 IIX, but it wasn’t confirmed at the time of the product announcement
Now, it appears to be available with the camera supporting both formats through external monitor recorders from Atomos and Blackmagic. Panasonic has also announced that a firmware update will also be coming in June for the Panasonic S5 II to add Blackmagic RAW support using raw over HDMI with the Blackmagic Video Assist 12G HDR.
