Got a newsletter from Atomos saying they’re working on FX3-support with wb/iso-support in FCPX. It’s almost like they’re mocking those who bought the A7SIII. Technically it should be the same firmware fix for both FX3 and A7SIII as the internals are the same more or less…

  1. We can imagine they will also add this for the A7SIII.
    Atomos must keep their recorder to a high end of functionnalities, especially since AppleM1 handles H265 without any problems.
    For me, AppleProRes was almost the only interest of their recorder. It’s not really needed anymore now with Apple M1 so they must add other functionnalities to keep people interested in their expensive recorders.

    – The AppleProRes vs H265 pain point is resolved with M1.
    – The internal 4:2:0 vs 4:2:2 point is already resolved by several cameras but quite expensive until now. I’m confident with an internal 4:2:2 not too much expensive camera in the next 12 months.
    – The screen size and resolution points may be the most difficult point but some solutions starts to come with some cameras (BlackMagic 6K Pro / C70, etc). Some others may come…
