Atomos has just released AtomOS 10.63 update with ProRes RAW support from Sony FX3 and Alpha 1 to the Ninja V HDR monitor/recorder. 

As some of you may recall, about a month ago Atomos announced they are working on supporting ProRes RAW from the FX3, and now this update is available to download. 

Furthermore, with this update, the Sony FX3 can output 16bit raw via HDMI, which is then encoded as 12bit log ProRes RAW to the Ninja V up to 4.2K/60fps.

Despite carrying the same sensor and image processing as the Sony a7sIII, the new FX3 is part of the Sony CINEMA Line. And as such it features a removable top handle with an integrated XLR unit for 4-channel audio. 

Also, the 8K capable Sony alpha 1 flagship full-frame mirrorless camera can record (* via Ninja V and HDMI output, not internal) 4.3K ProRes RAW up to 60p


In addition, this firmware update also brings ProRes RAW support for the latest Sigma fp L and Panasonic’s BGH1 box-style camera
