Nikon made two announcements today, first, the release of a free, dedicated LUT for the N-Log feature found on Z Series cameras and second, an upcoming update (due later this year) that will enable support for RAW video output when using a compatible ATOMOS Ninja V digital recorder.
According to Nikon, both of these updates are designed to further expand the Z series capabilities for both professional and advanced video creators.
N-Log and LUT
The dedicated LUT available for Nikon’s N-Log feature, is compatible with the Rec. 709 color space will allow users to easily apply different looks to their content by offer a preset of RGB colour values, used to transform the appearance of video footage in post-production colour grading, and enables adjustment of brightness, saturation and hue.

Support for RAW video output
The announced output RAW data stream will enable recording in ProRes RAW video format on the Ninja V 4K HDR monitor/recorder made by ATOMOS, Nikon’s collaborator in developing this feature.
Unlike the free 3D LUT update, Nikon says that this feature update will require an additional (paid) internal upgrade and will need to be performed at a local Nikon service center.
