Nikon recently released firmware version 2.20 for their Z 6 and Z 7 mirrorless cameras, which brought raw video to the cameras, a huge feature for many videographers. This excellent video takes a look at the new capabilities on the Z 6 to see just how much extra power the raw video features give you.
Coming to you from Sareesh Sudhakaran of wolfcrow, this great video takes a look at the new raw video features on the Nikon Z 6 while coupled with a Atomos Ninja V. Sudhakaran tests both N-Log and ProRes RAW with the combination. The raw video capabilities output 12-bit 4K UHD or full HD to Ninja Atomos V recorders over HDMI. However, there are two drawbacks. First, raw video outputs a tremendous amount of data and will require a large amount of storage and processing power to work with, so it is worth considering if you actually need it in specific situations. Second, unless you buy (or have already bought) the Z 6 Filmmaker's kit, enabling raw video costs $200 and sending your camera to a Nikon service center. Still, it is a massive upgrade for those interested in it and could be well worth the extra overhead. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
