As part of the Adobe MAX conference, Adobe announced the expansion of collaboration tools in Creative Cloud and Document Cloud. Used by over 4,300 productions, Adobe Camera to Cloud, powered by Frame.io, sparked the transition from external drives to cloud-based camera workflows.
Today, Adobe previews new Camera to Cloud integrations built into RED Digital Cinema’s V-RAPTOR and V-RAPTOR XL camera systems, as well as the Fujifilm X-H2S.
Adobe’s first-to-market Camera to Cloud technology enabled productions to automatically transfer media from the production set to the cloud, allowing the post-production team to immediately begin working on pictures.
Recently announced Adobe Camera to Cloud integrations further streamline the process by moving media directly from cameras into organized Frame.io folder structures, without the need for intermediate devices, saving both cost and time of production. This new camera evolution is expected to become a standard within the next decade.
Fujifilm X-H2S — The world’s first digital camera to natively integrate with C2C
When paired with the FT-XH file transfer attachment to establish an internet connection, photography workflows will be completely cloud-based, with Frame.io supporting high-resolution RAW files with tools for magnifier, navigation and annotation.
This integration will be especially useful for multidisciplinary creative teams, so that related assets such as still images and graphics can be easily organized in the same Frame.io project along with video. What’s also remarkable is that the X-H2S can download ProRes and proxy video files, which opens up a whole new way of working. You can shoot anything – from a wedding to a sporting event or a live concert – send your photos (or video) to someone on your team so they can edit the asset – and share it or publish it without ever having to exchange a card reader or camera or any type of physical medium.
“Adobe Camera to Cloud’s native integration with Fujifilm mirrorless cameras removes a huge time barrier between production and release for photographers and videographers,” said Victor Ha, Vice President of Imaging electronics and optical devices, Fujifilm North America. “It’s not just groundbreaking, it’s a game-changer. We’re honored to bring this technology to mirrorless digital camera users around the world, and we’re excited to see what’s next.
The integration is expected to be released in a firmware update in spring 2023.
