ATOMOS to support new Panasonic LUMIX GH6
- 22 February, 2022
AUS: ATOMOS has announced that the NINJA V and NINJA V+ will support the new flagship Panasonic LUMIX GH6. Both devices will record Apple ProRes RAW to a range of profiles and framerates. At the top end, the more powerful NINJA V+ will support the DCI 4K standard, at up to 120fps over HDMI.
Panasonic LUMIX GH6
The new LUMIX GH6 camera builds on the heritage of the LUMIX series and the pioneering legacy of the original DMC-GH1, which was launched 2009. Like its predecessors the LUMIX GH6 is based on the Micro Four Third system (MFT) and features a newly designed 25.2-megapixel Live MOS sensor. The internal technology includes a new high-speed Venus Engine which can process images at twice the speed of earlier models. Housed in rugged body with a forced cooling mechanism, the LUMIX GH6 is splash, dust and freeze resistant (to –10C), meaning filmmakers can embark on some the most extreme adventures and let long takes roll on with confidence.
NINJA V & NINJA V+
The bright, accurate, HDR display of the NINJA V and NINJA V+ provides an accurate preview of the image from the LUMIX GH6 in remarkable detail. The 5-inch touchscreen offers 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 perfect HDR or SDR shot.
NINJA V/V+ & LUMIX GH6 Combination
While the sheer amount of throughput needed to process ProRes RAW at DCI 4Kp120 requires the power of the NINJA V+, it’s important to note that NINJA V and NINJA V+ offer an extensive range of alternative formats and frame rates. The range of options make the combination with the LUMIX GH6 compelling for filmmakers across the board. The robust design and compact form form-factor of each unit means they can be taken anywhere and used effectively at any time. The LUMIX GH6 and NINJA V/V+ are extremely mobile, and at home when used as part of a handheld setup, positioned in a tight space, or mounted on a gimbal.
“Pairing the new Panasonic LUMIX GH6 camera with the NINJA V/V+ furthers our goal to provide support for the very best cameras. We’re constantly impressed with what filmmakers can accomplish when we provide new technological solutions. We’re excited to see what they’re able to produce with this latest combination,” - Estelle McGechie, ATOMOS CEO.
