Moreover, via the firmware, the cameras will record data to the Ninja V as Apple ProRes RAW for flexible image editing. This lends greater flexibility to professional video production post-processing tasks; for example, adjusting exposure and color grading recorded footage.
Furthermore, Olympus is developing the firmware in collaboration with Atomos. Olympus will release the firmware this winter.
In addition, Olympus will continue to support professional video production via hand-held high-definition video recording with their compact lightweight system. The system features convenient portability as well as in-body 5-axis image stabilization with 5-axis sync IS capabilities.
