DP Elle Schneider shoots ProRes RAW music video ‘Lovesick’ on Nikon Z6 + Ninja V

In this Atomos Academy presentation DP Elle Schneider gives her insights into shooting music videos on a budget and how she used the Nikon Z6 with Atomos Ninja V to capture her latest video ‘Lovesick’ in Apple ProRes RAW. She explains how in her opinion ProRes RAW takes mirrorless cameras to a new level where they can be used to achieve spectacular results that are good enough to be used for projects like this one. 

(Apologies for the audio quality as Elle’s presentation was shot during COVID lockdown without access to a professional mic setup.)
