‘Dear Diary’ Behind the scenes with Rah Sharma – Shot on Nikon Z6 + Ninja V

Rah Sharma shares his story behind this zero-budget video Dear Diary. The project was filmed using the Nikon Z6 + Ninja V + Zhiyun Weebill S combination, to capture these High Dynamic Range images with cinematic movement. 

The Nikon Z6 is a mirrorless marvel that shoots amazing 24.5 megapixel stills and 4K video. Out of the box it outputs up to 10-bit 4Kp30 Log video over HDMI to any current Atomos monitor/recorder. With the addition of Nikon service upgrade procedure, it can also output RAW video over HDMI to the Ninja V. 

The Ninja V can also allow users to accurately monitor the Z6 RAW signal on its daylight-viewable 5″ HDR screen, previewing it for HDR in a choice of HLG and PQ (HDR10) formats. The Ninja V gives the Z6 multiple options for recording professional video. Choose the codec and the quality you need for the job in hand with options from ProRes RAW, ProRes or Avid DNx that are now supported on the leading NLE softwares.
