H.265 Recording for Ninja V

Ninja V owners will soon benefit from the ability to record using the 10-bit H.265 (HEVC) codec by purchasing the upgrade through my.atomos.com for $99. Having the ability to record in H.265 adds even more versatility to the Ninja V, as you can now choose to record in a high-quality compressed format with small file sizes.

These attributes are perfect for the world we now live in, where streaming & sharing has dramatically increased, and physically handing over a hard drive is not as easy to do. It is also a great option where you need to deliver and share files quickly or where there is limited time or budget for color grading, as the h.265 have excellent image quality and allow you to ‘bake in’ Rec. 709 or a custom LUT to the file.

H.265 is also an excellent option for ARRI and RED SDI proxy workflows, where RAW is being recorded internally on the camera. Recordings can use the same name as the internal files, so that you can start editing with high quality proxy files immediately. Then, once you have created your edit, you can use the RAW files for the final color grade.
