Atomos has announced that their Ninja V, Shogun 7 and Sumo 19 HDR monitor recorders will record 4K 10-bit 422 ProRes or DNx from the new Canon EOS R5 and EOS R6 cameras.

Both cameras offer exciting features for video creators and Atomos are delighted to support 4K and HD video recording from the EOS R5 and EOS R6 via HDMI in industry standard codecs on all current monitor-recorders, directly onto affordable, reliable SATA SSD media.
Recording ProRes or DNx codecs ensures that footage from the EOS R5 or EOS R6 is production ready and has the widest possible compatibility with editing and grading software. This is the highest framerate 4K 10-bit HDMI video output that Canon has ever offered from a mirrorless camera. 10-bit video offers greater accuracy with billions of color combinations. This is massively beneficial when utilising computer processing for finishing. Typically, users will see smoother color gradients, eliminating the commonly seen banding in areas with gradual tone change such as blue skies. Recording to an Atomos recorder perfectly preserves this information in the ultimate way possible.
The EOS R5 and EOS R6 can be easily integrated into multi-cam shoots where other devices are also capturing in ProRes or DNx by using Atomos monitor-recorders. Multi-camera operation of the EOS R5 and EOS R6 is also greatly enhanced with the advanced wireless sync options offered by the Atomos AtomX SYNC clip-on module for Ninja V. This connects multiple AtomX SYNC-equipped Ninja Vs with cameras and audio recorders by using patented long range RF wireless technology to communicate at distances up to 200m. At the same time, the module can bring other devices into the synchronised system via in-built Bluetooth. On iPhone and iPad this works with apps like Apogee’s MetaRecorder audio recorder to allow for a simple dual-sound audio recording setup with the EOS R5 and EOS R6. It also works with apps like the Mavis Pro camera and MovieSlate8 logging, as well as with professional audio recorders like the Zoom F6 and F8n. The result is that all footage and audio is instantly synchronized when coming to edit it – no more time is wasted trying to align clips or running additional software as video and audio sources all match up perfectly every time.
