This past fall, Atomos and Panasonic announced 35mm Full-Frame RAW video over HDMI from the Lumix S1H to Ninja V.
This is from the original press release, edited slightly in the interest of clarity and FDTimes style:
Atomos worked with Panasonic to co-develop recording RAW files on the Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR monitor-recorder via HDMI from the new Lumix S1H. The RAW update will be available free on the Ninja V when the software update on the camera is released by Panasonic.
Jeromy Young, Atomos CEO, said, “We are very proud of continuing to develop new ground-breaking technology with a company of the caliber of Panasonic. We are both highly committed to the democratisation of filmmaking for creators. The ability to transmit RAW over HDMI from the S1H to a Ninja V is a major leap forward in this endeavour.”
The Lumix S1H is the new Full-Frame mirrorless camera capable of 6K internal video. It combines the qualities of a cine camera with a still camera, and squeezing all that into the size of a digital interchangeable-lens mirrorless camera, making it an excellent companion with the Ninja V.
At their launch event in LA, Panasonic representatives said, “One of the leading brands of external monitor-recorders is definitely Atomos. Both companies have a very good relationship and we have been providing 4:2:2 10-bit HDMI output recording for the Lumix GH series for years. We are very proud to be developing RAW output via HDMI with Atomos for the S1H.”
Jeromy Young added, “Our advancements in screen technology now allow creators to accurately monitor RAW video in real-time as it would be viewed in the home or cinema—with the original creative intent preserved. Our pristine custom Atomos HDR screens are excellent in color accuracy and representation of brightness from RAW signals. When combined, these advantages create a dream workflow for filmmakers.”
And then at IBC, Panasonic and Atomos announced:
Panasonic S1H will be able to output 5.9K 30p and C4K 60p as RAW data via HDMI.
ATOMOS Ninja V and Shogun 7 will be able to record Apple ProRes RAW from the S1H HDMI output. ATOMOS Neon 17, 24, 31 and 55-inch Monitor/Recorders will as well.
S1H RAW Recording from HDMI to ATOMOS products is planned to be released around Spring 2020.
