Atomos announced their expected Ninja V upgrade, called the Ninja V+, sporting faster processing that allows goodies like Apple ProRes RAW (8K 30p or 4K 120p) and 10-bit 4:2:2 H.265 full I Frame recording.

The 8K externally recorded option may be particularly attractive to Canon R5 shooters, who currently can record 8K only internally, which heats of the camera somewhat quickly. Recording externally with the high-bit-rate 4K on the Canon R5 currently solves the internal recording heat problem endemic to that camera.

The screen appears to be the same as the previous version. The $600 Ninja V may still be quite attractive to people seeking external recorders in light of the Ninja V+’s $1,500 price tag.

Atomos also launched the Ninja Stream, which allows for simultaneous recording of ProRes and H.264 proxy footage with matched timecode. The banner feature of the Stream, however, is that it can, well, stream content wirelessly or via ethernet for direct streaming without the need for a computer. The price for that device hasn’t been announced yet.
