Raw Video / Re: ML RAW + Atomos Ninja 5D3

Sadness.  :'(

That makes a lot of sense. I guess I can only hope the state of RAW workflows improves.

Thanks for the reply.

I'm pretty sure that 1.2.1 does not allow for 10-bit recording via HDMI.  It allows 8-bit 4:2:2.  Your recorder may be recording with 10 bits, but 2 of them aren't being used.

That's what the spec sheet says, yes. But I wasn't talking about what it does I was talking about what I want it to do.

Even limited to 8-bit, the dynamic range of the raw video, flattened out the HDMI port would be VERY compelling.

Am I dreaming?

You obviously can't get RAW video out of the HDMI port, but would it be possible to do something like Sony's SLOG2?

Since you've figured out where to grab the RAW data, and the new official firmware has the hooks for clean HDMI out, it would be absolutely amazing to crunch that RAW signal into a 10-bit HDMI stream and record on an Atomos Ninja 2 at DNxHD220 or ProRes 220.

This solves the CF size/speed issue and could get nearly the same results at a fraction of the workflow and data rate.

I can't be the only one around looking at current RAW workflows thinking it's nothing but a nightmare for large-scale productions.
