Back to all Cameras

Sony Alpha 1

Sony’s full-frame flagship Alpha 1 has features and performance designed for the most demanding of professionals. It is one camera designed to do it all. It combines high-resolution and high-speed performance, with a new 50.1-megapixel stacked Exmor RS™ CMOS image sensor built with integral memory in combination with an upgraded BIONZ XR™ imaging processing engine. It also offers a wide dynamic range with 15+ stops for video.

Ninja V & Sony’s Alpha 1 Combination

The Alpha 1 and Ninja V combination allows for a compact rig set-up with a camera that breaks existing boundaries and unleashes extended creative possibilities to creators. Add to this the ability to record data-rich 16-bit RAW from the Alpha 1, which is then compressed and recorded in the Ninja V as 12-bit ProRes RAW from the camera’s new large sensor up to 4.3Kp60.

ATOMOS 10.63 for Ninja V

Full Flexibility

Users will benefit from the full flexibility offered by the ProRes RAW format as Atomos have been closely working with Apple to ensure that all the required metadata to activate the WB and ISO Adjustment sliders in Final Cut Pro is present within the Atomos recorded ProRes RAW file and working correctly. Having these adjustments available for the user really demonstrates the power and flexibility of the ProRes RAW format.

Content creators and filmmakers will benefit from these available adjustments and the storage advantage of ProRes RAW, where the codec harnesses the ability to capture 12-bit RAW in the same file sizes as 10-bit 422 standard ProRes. In addition to their groundbreaking combination of flexibility and performance, Apple ProRes RAW files are smaller than other RAW file types – simplifying and accelerating file transfer, media management, and archiving.


ProRes RAW - the new standard for RAW

Atomos is proud to be adding yet another exciting camera to the ever-growing ProRes RAW eco-system. Throughout 2020 and 2021 ProRes RAW continues to build momentum with over 30 cameras supporting ProRes RAW with Atomos, cementing its position as the industry standard for RAW video capture. ProRes RAW support continues to expand across camera manufacturers and models, demonstrating industry commitment to the future of ProRes RAW recording.

ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes. The format gives filmmakers enormous latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail, making it ideal for HDR workflows. Both ProRes RAW, and the higher bandwidth, less compressed ProRes RAW HQ are supported. Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut.
