Atomos has announced ProRes RAW support over HDMI for the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark III mirrorless cameras. As a result, the Olympus cameras and the Atomos Ninja V will record Apple ProRes RAW directly from the camera’s sensor.
Olympus OM-D camera users will get the benefits of a ProRes RAW workflow which includes creative control to adjust the colour and look of the video in post-production while extending brightness and shadow detail.
The Ninja V promises to accurately monitor the RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5” 1000nit brightness HDR screen. Setup is simple with tuned colour settings applied automatically. Users can then view the image in HDR quality with a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats.
The Ninja V offers touchscreen access to tools like waveforms, 1-1 magnification and focus peaking, allowing users to perfect their shot setup. The Ninja V then records the ProRes RAW data onto a removable AtomX SSDmini or other SSD drives. When shooting is complete, the drive can be removed and connected to a computer via USB for immediate offload and editing.
Commenting on the development, Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO, said: “We’re thrilled to work with Olympus and their stunning mirrorless cameras to bring the power of Apple’s ProRes RAW to OM-D users. We can’t wait to see the creativity that results from this partnership.”
