Sony Fs5 RAW w/ Black Magic Video Assist Recorder

Post by dalvesmattos » August 16th, 2018, 8:17 pm

Hello there!

I'm David, from Brazil. First time here on this forum.
I'd like to know if any of you fellas has ever tried using the RAW output from the Sony PXW FS5 on to the BlackMagic Design Video Assist 4K. All I have found online were experiences with other external recorders that are able to record the RAW output. So, my question is: is it possible to get this RAW output and record it in any of the ProRes possibilities of the BlackMagic Video Assist external recorder? This external recorder does not have RAW recording capabilities, so this is why I'm really curious about it.

Thanks very much!

Cheers.

I have a similar question: I have a NINJA INFERNO (HDMI ONLY) and I'm curious if I can record out 4K 10-bit 422. I know the FS5 ii only outputs 8-bit 422, but I'm curious if I can output raw to the ninja inferno and have it record 10-bit 422?

You need an Atomos or Convergent Design recorder specifically designed for raw to record the raw output. Conventional recorders will not be able to record raw.
