Atomos has released new firmware AtomOS 10.63 for its compact 5" HDR monitor recorder Ninja V, which enables external ProRes RAW recording for a number of different cameras.
Atomos Ninja V
Atomos had indeed recently (announced) the now support for the new Sony FX3 and Alpha 1 cameras www.slashcam.de/news/single/Atomos-kuendigt-Entwicklung-von-ProRes-RAW-Support--16405.html - so Sony A1 owners can now record 4.3K ProRes RAW at up to 60p using the Ninja V, and owners of the Sony FX3 can record 4.2K ProRes RAW at up to 60p.
For both cameras, the 16-bit linear is converted to 12-bit log. Additionally, with the FX3 and Ninja V, users can take advantage of Cropped metadata mode, which provides an easy way to convert the RAW data to a 16:9 aspect ratio that closely resembles the 4K UHD files recorded internally.
Likewise, the support for Panasonic's new BGH1 camera has been realized by the Ninja V, which is now available and enables recording of 4K DCI ProRes RAW and 3.7K anamorphic - provided the BGH1's firmware is updated to version 2.0.

The new Sigma fp L full-frame camera will be able to shoot ProRes when it ships (like the Sigma fp) when paired with the Ninja V 4Kp30.
White balance and ISO metadata support.
After updating to AtomOS 10.63, users of the cameras listed above will be able to use the metadata embedded in new ProRes RAW recordings for camera settings related to white balance and ISO/exposure offset settings in Final Cut Pro (and soon Premiere Pro).
AtomOS 10.63 also fixes a bug with the Panasonic Type 3 trigger that occurred when recording ProRes RAW, ProRes, and DNx with Panasonic's AU-EVA1 and VariCam LT cameras.
