MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA – Atomos has announced that Sony’s new FS5 II with the Shogun Inferno 7-inch HDR monitor/recorder is the latest camera combination to support Apple ProRes RAW. The FS5 II brings the number of ProRes-compatible cinema cameras enabled by Atomos to nine; it also works with the Atomos Sumo19 production monitor/recorder.
Atomos is showing the Sony FS5 and FS5 II at its booth (C 9435) during NAB 2018.
Atomos has worked with Sony to guarantee that the FS5 II can shoot in the new standard. Atomos monitor/recorders are currently the only ProRes RAW recording solutions for cinema cameras, including the FS5 II.
The FS5 II will come equipped with FS-RAW output over SDI as standard (originally a paid-for option on the FS5). Atomos will be able to record ProRes RAW, ProRes, DNxHR and CDNG formats from this output as soon as the camera is available.
The FS5 II with Shogun Inferno can shoot ProRes RAW at up to 4Kp60 continuously, or 4Kp120 burst and 2kp240 DCI/HD for high-speed filming. In addition, it can record 10-bit 4:2:2 video in ProRes or DNxHR codecs at up to 4Kp60 or 2Kp240 continuous.
Owners of the original FS5 with FS-RAW option and Shogun Inferno will get ProRes RAW recording for free now via an AtomOS update. Until the end of May, Sony is offering anyone buying an FS5 camera FS-RAW, MPEG HD recording and High Frame Rate upgrades for free. An accessory kit is also available at a low price.
