Canon EOS R5

The Canon EOS R5 is a well established and respected camera in the market for the aspiring & professional image-maker; renowned for its amazing video features, which now includes 8K ProRes RAW recording when paired with a Ninja V+ HDR monitor recorder. The EOS R5 is compact and lightweight with a 45MP Full-Frame image sensor. With the recent camera firmware v1.4 update it is now capable of outputting RAW over HDMI to a Ninja V+ at up to 8Kp30 and 5Kp60.


The Ninja V+ records 8Kp30 ProRes RAW from the Canon EOS R5 via a standard HDMI connection. Atomos and Canon have worked together for the past 2 years to bring customers a world first for capturing stunning 8K RAW and HDR images with incredible clarity and detail in a compact and configurable system that is very affordable when compared with other 8K setups. The possibilities you have when shooting in 8K are a true game changer. Canon and Atomos have democratized 8K for the masses with no compromise in quality. Additionally, the EOS R5 supports 5Kp60 ProRes RAW with Ninja V+ to provide even more creative latitude.


8K Workflow

Affordable, regardless of your delivery format

With the broad canvas of 8K resolution, your options for creative crops into a region of interest allow you to extract multiple 4K shots from a single camera angle. This allows you to create additional shots for cutaways to break up the edit, that are much higher resolution than if the shots were extracted from a single 4K source.

You can also create multiple high-resolution vertical or square crops in regions of interest in post for social media, which can also be previewed on the Ninja V+ with social media frame guides. This allows you to maximize the camera’s resolution to achieve 4K 9:16 vertical aspect ratios without having to compromise the way you shoot for mainstream delivery.


Stabilise without

The incredible resolution of 8K video means that even after cropping into the image as part of the stabilization process, the final shot will likely still have a resolution of 4K or even 6K. This means that it can integrate with your other 8K footage on the timeline, and still look great.


8K and ProRes RAW

The ProRes RAW format is a perfect vehicle for an 8K workflow, from ease of use natively on the timeline within Final Cut Pro to the flexibility of RAW image processing with full adjustment of Exposure, WB and ISO. Coupled with the proven Full Frame Canon EOS R5, lens systems and AF, this combination will propel content creators to a whole new level in terms of image quality and production value.

Please note:

Due to large amount of processing required for high resolution or high frame rate encoding, the Ninja V screen and enclosure can get very warm during use.  This is completely normal and expected behaviour. The Ninja has various safety features designed to manage the thermal performance of the unit. However, we would advise to use caution when using the product in high ambient temperatures and at high screen brightness. Particularly when fully touching the product to swap the battery or SSD media. Please be aware to keep the product well ventilated and not to obstruct or block the air vents.
