Atomos’s new firmware version (10.61) for the Ninja V external video recorder adds a simple timelapse feature. In addition to basic timing preferences (and not more complex capabilities such as bramping), the Ninja will merge the images together into video in some of the more desirable formats, such as ProRes, DNx or ProRes RAW.

While Camnostic typically does not cover video-centric hardware, the Ninja V is now commonly paired with the Canon R5, as it is a simple solution to the video overheating issues with that camera. The Ninja’s timelapse feature’s ability to combine the images into video without post processing is one not supported by the R5 alone.

Other firmware upgrades include cross conversion of HDMI/SDI video sources and the addition of RAW support for the Sony FX9, Canon C300 Mark II and the Panasonic Varicam LT.
