Atomos has released the latest firmware update for its popular Ninja V monitor/recorder that enables ProRes RAW capture over HDMI with the Fujifilm GFX 100 and Sigma fp camera systems.

Fujifilm GFX 100

On a GFX 100 running firmware version 2.01 or later, the Ninja V can now record 12-bit 4K ProRes RAW video at up to 30p over HDMI. This marks the first time users can capture Raw footage on the large format camera.

If you don’t need the Raw video, the Atomos firmware update also enables 10-bit 422 ProRes and DNx 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) capture up to 30p or 4K DCI (4096 × 2160) at up to 24p. Multiple monitoring modes have also been added for viewing and playing back Raw footage.

Sigma fp

Moving onto the Sigma fp, the Ninja V can now record 12-bit ProRes RAW at 4K DCI up to 24p or 4K UHD up to 30p over HDMI using the full width of the sensor. You can even capture 120p (119.88p) 12-bit ProRes Raw if you knock the resolution down to 1080.

10-bit ProRes 422 and DNx can also be recorded at 30p and 120p (119.88p) at 4K UHD and 1080 resolutions, respectively, if you don’t need Raw footage. Like the GFX 100, multiple monitoring modes have also been included for viewing and playing back Raw footage.

You can download the 10.53 firmware update from the Atomos Ninja V support page.

Known limitations

SIGMA fp

• In some instances when using LUTs banding artifacts may be observed in some areas of the display on the Ninja V for

4KUHD video modes. (This behaviour is only limited to the display of the Ninja V and not the recordings).

• On occasion if the camera is. powered down whilst connect to the Ninja V and set to RAW mode, the Ninja V may enter a locked state.

– Switch between Record and Play back mode, Unplugging and re-plugging the HDMI, or Power cycling Switching will all resolve this issue.

• ISO metadata reported in Final Cut Pro X may occasionally be incorrect if using 1/3 EV ISO adjustments on the camera. – Incorrect for camera ISO setting 1000, 8000, 16000.

• Update in future firmware release for camera.
– White balance adjustment is not available in Final Cut Pro X.

FujiFilm GFX100

• Interaction with the EVF eye sensor may cause freeze frame or black frames in the recording. – Not using the EVF or tilting the LCD screen can resolve the issue.
– Removal of the EVF from the camera is advised to avoid issue.

• White balance metadata is not reported in Final Cut Pro X.
– Update in future firmware release for camera and Ninja.
– White balance adjustment is not available in Final Cut Pro X.

General

• RAW to HDR HDMI output – PQ / HDR10 output conversion may appear slightly incorrect.
