Nikon today introduces a dedicated LUT (lookup table) for N-Log videography, a new feature for the Nikon Z7 and Z6 cameras. A new firmware update will also be released later this year for the Z 7 and Z 6 cameras that will support RAW video output straight from the camera. This firmware will enable recording in Apple’s versatile ProRes RAW video format on the Ninja V 4K HDR monitor/recorder made by ATOMOS, Nikon’s collaborator in developing RAW video output technology. 

With this firmware release, the Nikon Z7 and Z6 will be the first consumer cameras to officially support RAW video output, currently only available in professional cinema cameras. RAW video files provide the richest information, just as RAW data does for still images. By bringing even more flexibility to post-production colour grading, RAW video output support firmly places Nikon mirrorless cameras in the same realm as professional cinema cameras, making them an affordable choice for full-scale movie production. 

The dedicated LUT for Nikon's N-Log is compatible with the Rec. 709 colour space. It is also a 3D LUT, enabling adjustment of brightness, saturation and hue, in addition to RGB colours. A LUT is preset data of RGB colour values, used to transform the appearance of video footage in post-production colour grading. The Z7 and Z6's N-Log HDMI output recording is optimised for 10-bit recording, bringing out the image sensor’s full dynamic range. It records rich gradation information in highlights and shadows to allow for more flexible colour grading.ing.
