Canon R5 C and Atomos Ninja V+ 8K Workflow
The EOS R5 C is the latest model in Canon&s Cinema EOS range. It is technically based on the EOS R5 C, but has been given some features that are specifically designed for professional filmmakers.
For example, it has a new heat dissipation system that allows longer takes without the risk of overheating, as well as professional timecode input/output connectors and a new standardized multi-accessory shoe.
High resolutions (up to 8K) are recorded by the EOS R5 C in 12-bit Cinema RAW Light, which now provides a choice of three quality levels: RAW HQ (High Quality), RAW ST (Standard Quality) and RAW LT (Light Quality). In addition, the EOS R5 C also supports Canon&s XF-AVC format (at up to 810 Mbps) and versatile MP4 options. Recording is done on 1x CFexpress 2.0 Type B and 1x UHS-II SD.
The Ninja V+ supports 6K at 50fps and 60fps in addition to recording 8K ProRes RAW at 30fps. Both Ninjas (Ninja V and V+) offers support for 6K at up to 30fps and 3K at up to 60fps.
The integrated LTC input also makes the EOS R5 C suitable for multi-camera productions. It can be used in combination with the Atomos UltraSync One, a lightweight wireless sync system, to connect and synchronize multiple cameras. The technology is also compatible with the AtomX SYNC module for the Ninja V/V+, which means wireless syncing with a range of devices.
