Atomos has just announced the long-awaited release of the AtomOS 10.71 for the Ninja V and Ninja V+ which introduces ProRes RAW format recording options for the legacy Sony FS series, Canon EOS R5, and the LUMIX BS1H.
In addition to this, this software update includes brand new features for the AtomX CAST and compatibility with the Ninja V+ to create a new level of performance and versatility for live productions.
The powerful Ninja V+ Pro Kit (or Ninja V+ with the AtomX SDI Unit and SDI RAW activation) now support the recording of ProRes RAW from the FS5, FS5 MKII, FS700, and FS700r with continuous output directly from the sensor up to 2K 240fps, 4K 60fps and 4K 120fps for 4s bursts.
RAW output at 4K 60fps and 2K up to 240fps can also be added to the Sony FS7 or FS7MKII with the addition of the XDCA-FS7 module.
The combination of the Canon EOS R5 with the Ninja V now delivers recordings of up to 5K RAW at an unprecedented price point. The 45MP full-frame sensor can deliver 5K images that allow for high-resolution reframing and stabilization.
The ability to work with 8K RAW on the Ninja V+ provides countless possibilities from reframing of 4K crops and an increase in image fidelity.
Adding the Ninja V or the Ninja V+ to a LUMIX BS1H rig allows recordings of 5.9K 30fps, 4.1K 60fps and 3.5K 50fps anamorphic.
The LUMIX BS1H combines stunning cinema-quality video performance of the full-frame LUMIX S1H, including impressive bokeh, low-light performance, wide dynamic range of 14+ stops V-Log and network connectivity.
Last but not least, Atomos is releasing an update to the AtomX CAST. New features include compatibility with the Ninja V+, picture overlays, Picture-in-Picture (PiP) recording, and a dip to black/white transition.
The ability to record both the clean program feed or record with TX graphics, PiP, and transitions directly to SSD makes the AtomX CAST the perfect device for fast turnaround live productions.
Other updates including support for interlaced inputs, an option for audio delay, and bug fixes combine to make this the most compelling AtomX CAST release to date.
