This announcement is probably a big surprise to absolutely nobody, but Atomos is bringing ProRes RAW support to the Atomos Ninja V when used in conjunction with the new Sony
A7S III FX3 cinema camera. Atomos says this combo should allow users “the ability to record the camera’s 16-bit RAW output at up to 4K60p”.
Atomos has worded that bit very carefully because while the Sony FX3 does indeed put out 16-Bit RAW over the HDMI port, ProRes RAW on the Atomos Ninja V records “only” 12-Bit. But, it’s producing those 12-Bits from the best possible starting point, thanks to the 16-Bit feed out of the camera. And 12’s still plenty.
