The stunning series of macro shots were captured with Laowa macro lenses and edited and graded for HDR and SDR (Rec.709) versions in Apple Final Cut Pro X.

The Z CAM E2-F6 combined with the Atomos Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder creates incredibly detailed full-frame 12-bit 5.8K ProRes RAW images with wide dynamic range and beautiful colors. The E2-F6 interchangeable lens mount allows a massive range of cine and stills lenses to be used and their images perfectly preserved in an efficient RAW format. This RAW image is accurately displayed on the Ninja V in PQ or HLG HDR modes for maximum insight into the image when viewing.


Using Atomos RAW over HDMI technology allows this compact cinema camera to record up to 5.8Kp29.97 or 4Kp59.94 RAW direct from the camera to reliable and affordable SSD media. The dual native ISO feature provides exceptionally clean RAW images with minimal noise even in low light. The images created are perfect for HDR or SDR (Rec.709) production.

These features are now available on the Atomos Ninja V in the free AtomOS 10.5 update here
