SIGMA fp L And Atomos Ninja V Enabled For Apple ProRes RAW

The Panasonic SIGMA fp L will be able to record Apple ProRes RAW over HDMI when combined with the Ninja V 5” HDR monitor-recorder. The Ninja V will record up to 4Kp30 12-bit ProRes RAW video from the 61-megapixel image sensor with an available 13 stops of dynamic range.

The SIGMA fp L is claimed to be the world’s smallest and lightest large format camera. It weighs 375g – ideal for drone and gimbal shooting. It uses L-Mount, a lens mount optimized for mirrorless cameras. Allowing it to be used with various lenses offered by LeicaPanasonic and SIGMA themselves.

The 5” 1000nit HDR high brightness display of the Ninja V allows users to view the RAW signal in HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. The monitor offers touchscreen access to tools like waveforms, magnify or engage peaking so users can check focus for each angle and make any adjustments to get the perfect HDR or SDR shot.

Atomos CEO Jeromy Young said, “SIGMA fp L and Ninja V combination is a perfect compact rig set-up for scenarios like handheld, placing in tight corners or mount onto gimbals. TV dramas, indie films, corporate productions, documentaries and even motion pictures can add to that the ability to record ProRes RAW. This combination gives filmmakers an affordable set-up and the option to harness ProRes RAW.

“Atomos and SIGMA are committed to presenting users with the full capabilities of the ProRes RAW format which means giving them maximum flexibility when it comes to editing the codec. SIGMA fp L will therefore fully support White Balance and ISO adjustment sliders in Final Cut Pro.”
