Just the other day we saw Panasonic release its RAW Video Data Output over HDMI firmware update program (firmware version 2.1) for the S1H. At the same time, Atomos released a Beta firmware for the Ninja V. Well, now Atomos has officially released its free AtomOS update that allows you to record the RAW signal from the S1H in ProRes RAW.
From today Ninja V & Panasonic LUMIX S1H users will be able to record 12-bit RAW signal files directly from the full-frame sensor of the S1H over HDMI at up to 5.9K/29.97p in Full-frame, or 4K/59.94p in Super35.
RAW video data output over HDMI
[5.9K] / [4K] / [Anamorphic (4:3) 3.5K] 12-bit RAW video data can be output over HDMI.
Apple ProRes RAW can be recorded on Atomos Ninja V.1 V-Log or Rec.709 is selectable on Live View monitor during RAW output.
Shooting assist functions including WFM (Wave Form Monitor), Vector Scope, Luminance Spot Meter, Zebra Pattern can be used during RAW output.
A LUT (Lookup table) exclusively designed for RAW video recorded on NINJA V is available from: https://panasonic.jp/support/global/cs/dsc/download/lut/s1h_raw_lut/index.html.
This LUT will allow you to match the color grading with V-Log/V-Gamut2. Using this new LUT, you can match colors between the footage recorded with Panasonic Varicam, EVA1, and GH5 series cameras to combine them.

Both firmware updates are completely free. The S1H firmware is now available at the LUMIX Global Customer Support website: https://av.jpn.support.panasonic.com/support/global/cs/dsc/
