Earlier in the year, Atomos announced that it has been working on firmware for the Ninja V+ monitor/recorder that will enable 8K ProRes RAW recording from the Canon EOS R5. Many content creators have been eagerly waiting for this release and we are pleased to announce that it’s finally here. Atomos has just released AtomOS 10.68 which once installed on the Ninja V+ allows Canon EOS R5 shooters to record 8K video up to 30fps in different ProRes flavors.
According to Atomos, Apple ProRes RAW 8K provides an unparalleled combination of real-time, multi-stream editing performance, and impressive image quality preservation. The recently announced new features of white balance (WB) and ISO in Final Cut Pro give creators even greater flexibility and control over their image processing during post-production.
Redesigned with a stealth grey bezel and expanded processing power, the Ninja V+ delivers even more options for creators. Using the new Atomos Silicon chip, the AtomIC3, and the AtomOS 10 technology, the Atomos team re-engineered the Ninja V+ to meet the evolving needs of the creator. This innovation increased the power to record ProRes RAW at even higher frame rates and resolutions.
Ninja V users will also benefit from AtomOS 10.68 with the ability to capture up to 5Kp30 ProRes RAW recording from the Canon EOS R5 alongside the other functionality included in the firmware update.
Finally, it’s worth mentioning that Atomos will be hosting an online event on September 7th with the content creator Levi Allen who will talk about his experience shooting 8K ProRes RAW with the Ninja V+ and the Canon EOS R5. You can sign up for the event by following this link.
