ATOMOS to support latest Leica SL-System camera
- 14 April, 2022
AUS: ATOMOS has announced an exciting new partnership with Leica, that enables the latest camera of the Leica SL-System to record ProRes RAW over HDMI. When connected to the ATOMOS NINJA V or NINJA V+ the Leica SL2-S is able to produce 4K, 12-bit linear ProRes RAW at up to 60fps.
The Leica SL2-S builds on the successes of the popular Leica SL2. The camera features an all-metal, state-of-the-art body that has been built for long-term durability and protects the latest 24-megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor. It offers separate recording modes for photos or video to maximise performance and offer an optimal experience for each medium. The sensor is suspended to provide multi-axis stabilization when combined with L-Mount lenses.
NINJA V & NINJA V+
The bright HDR display of the NINJA V/V+ provides an accurate preview of the image from the Leica SL2-S in incredible detail. The device offers the ability to choose between HLG and PQ (HDR10) standards to suit individual requirements. The 5-inch touchscreen provides access to a wide range of software tools including waveforms, false color, check focus, framing guides, LUTs and image magnification. With the NINJA V/V+ filmmakers can be confident in their technical and creative decisions during production to get the most from that Leica SL2-S sensor.
NINJA V/V+ & Leica SLS-2
The Leica SL2-S and the NINJA V/V+ provide a versatile package that can be taken anywhere. Their compact form-factors mean they are suited to various kinds of rig and types of production. The integrated solution is equally at home when used as part of a handheld setup, positioned in a confined space, or mounted on a gimbal. The choice to harness ProRes RAW in a lightweight, yet durable CMOS camera makes the format even more accessible and introduces new creative opportunities for a greater range of filmmakers.
The required firmware updates for the Leica SLS-2 and the ATOMOS NINJA V/V+ will be available for download beginning of May 2022.
