The cameras haven’t even his the shelves of retailers yet and already Atomos has announced its Ninja V monitor/recorder will support ProRes RAW recording over HDMI on Nikon’s forthcoming Z6 II and Z7 II camera systems.
While both the Z6 II and Z7 II have respectable internal recording capabilities in their own right — 4K/60p for the Z7 II out of the box and with the Z6 II via a future firmware update — the addition of ProRes RAW recording further adds to the creative capabilities of Nikon’s latest mirrorless cameras.
Atomos says both the Z6 II and Z7 II will be able to output up to 4K/30p 12-bit ProRes RAW video over HDMI to the Atomos Ninja V recorder when it receives an AtomOS firmware update later this year. Atomos also notes that Nikon’s N-Log profile is fully supported in its AtomHDR monitoring pipeline ‘with the ability to add built in 709 preview, custom 3D LUTs and LOG to HDR conversion for both monitoring and output.’

Fujifilm’s latest entry-level Instax Mini model offers improved auto exposure over its predecessor and a simple-to-use interface. However, fun features and creative controls are mostly absent.
Fujifilm’s latest X-S10 is a likeable, easy-to-control mirrorless camera with some of the company’s best tech packed inside it. For users tempted by the Fujifilm ecosystem but turned off by all the dedicated dials, the X-S10 is worth a look.
For still photographers, we feel the Nikon Z5 represents the best value for the money when it comes to full-frame mirrorless cameras. Which is why it receives our top award.
The Sony ZV-1 was designed specifically for vloggers, but this compact camera is an excellent option for still photographers too.
