The OM-D Olympus family, known for portability and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, now offer a ProRes RAW workflow when they combine the cameras with the Ninja V.
Atomos has released Apple ProRes RAW recording over HDMI with the Olympus OM-D E-M1X and OM-D E-M1 Mark III mirrorless cameras. Together these Olympus cameras and the Atomos Ninja V will record ProRes RAW directly from the camera’s sensor.
The OM-D cameras, known for portability and in-body 5-axis image stabilisation, now offer a ProRes RAW workflow when they combine the cameras with the Ninja V, such as creative control to adjust the colour and look of the video in post-production while extending brightness and shadow detail.
The Ninja V aims to allow users to accurately monitor the RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5” 1000nit brightness HDR screen. Setup is simple with perfectly 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 speaking, allowing users to perfect their shot setup. The Ninja V then records the ProRes RAW data onto a removable AtomX SSDmini or another SSD drive. When shooting is complete the drive is removed and connected to a computer via USB for immediate offload and editing.
Commenting on the release, 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.”
