“A Drummers Treasure” LUMIX S1H + Ninja V RAW Anamorphic Teaser

Shot using early versions of firmware version 2.0, “A Drummers Treasure” will tell the story of a musician and how far he will go to get the sound he is looking for in a drum. This is a teaser if a soon to be completed film by Director of Photography Sheriff Mokbel. Shot with a combination of Atlas Orion Anamorphic lenses, this piece shows many scenes with tremendous dynamic range while maintaining the character often associate with Anamorphic lenses.

Firmware version 2.0 for the critically acclaimed S1H unlocks features never before available in a “Mirrorless” styled camera, including the first every implementation of 12bit 5.9K RAW video delivered over HDMI. Combined with the powerful and compact Atomos Ninja V and the flexibility of Apple ProRes RAW, you have image quality ordinarily reserved for cinema cameras costing tens of thousands of dollars more than this potent combination.

More and more cinematographers are now choosing to shoot with anamorphic lenses and the Ninja V and S1H combination caters to them with the new 3.5K Super35 Anamorphic 4:3 RAW mode. An even bigger world of cinematic opportunities opens up as the Ninja V and S1H can now be used as an A-camera or smaller B-camera on an anamorphic RAW production.

Firmware version 2.0 will be available as a free download on May 25th, 2020.

Note: Video captured early March 2020.
