Atomos Ninja V and LUMIX S1H RAW firmware delay

Panasonic reports:

The firmware updates enabling the much-anticipated Atomos Ninja V and Panasonic LUMIX S1H RAW over HDMI combination have unfortunately been slightly delayed from the original 25th May release schedule, to ensure the highest possible level of RAW recording.

An unforeseen technical issue has come to light in the final rounds of beta testing that needs rectification prior to shipping. The companies are working together to complete the development as soon as possible. We apologise to our mutual customers waiting for the functions this release enables.

Please note that Panasonic will be releasing Ver 2.0 firmware on May 25th with various improvements to camera functions, however will not include the planned RAW HDMI output feature. Atomos will release its Ninja V AtomOS for LUMIX S1H HDMI RAW in-line with Panasonic’s RAW output firmware.

Panasonic financial reports says digital cameras sales in Europe were “sluggish”

Panasonic published the full 2020 financial report. There is nearly no mention about the camera business. All they say in the “Appliances” segment is this:

Sales decreased by 6% to 2,592.6 billion yen from a year ago. Despite increased sales such as room air-conditioners in Asia and large-sized air-conditioners in Japan, overall sales decreased due mainly to sluggish sales of TVs and digital cameras in Europe. Operating profit decr eased to 55.7 billion yen from a year ago due mainly to decreasedsales and restructuring expenses.
