ProRes RAW over HDMI via New Firmware Update

Working together with Atomos, the new firmware for the LUMIX S1H cinema camera enables the output of maximum 5.9K/29.97p and 59.94p 4K* RAW video data over HDMI to save it as Apple ProRes RAW on the Atomos Ninja V 4K HDR monitor-recorder. In addition, it further complies with 3.5K Anamorphic 4:3. Panasonic commits to provide innovative solutions for professional film creation by enabling all S1H users to receive this firmware for free of charge.

You'll see how to enable RAW output and recording, learn what resolutions and framerates are supported in both NTSC and PAL, and get some hints on how to expose when shooting ProRes RAW. Then, you'll see in Final Cut Pro X how easy it is to recover a 4+ stops over REC.709 exposed shot, and how to manage both HDR and SDR editing from ProRes RAW files.
