AJA CION

CION™ is the new 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD production camera from AJA. Shoot direct to edit-ready Apple ProRes 444 at up to 4K 30fps, ProRes 422 at up to 4K 60fps, or output AJA Raw at up to 4K 120fps. CION is the union of great design and functionality, an engineered aesthetic that we are proud to describe as the Science of the Beautiful.

CION can encode 4K/UltraHD and 2K/HD directly to 12-bit ProRes 444 internally. Using this high quality and widely supported codec to record CION's film-like image and superb color rendition will provide the easiest route to post production for 4K yet. CION allows you to capture the look you need on-set, in-camera but with the latitude to create custom grades later by choice and not by necessity.

The ProRes 444 and 422 workflow for CION allows you to capture high quality images in an easily managed file format and size. The Pak dock provides fast transfer of footage footage into your local media storage and directly into a wide range of NLEs and finishing tools of choice with no need for transcoding. Native file recording means you're able to better connect production to post; keeping the image quality at it's highest throughout.

Each CION camera includes the following accessories as standard:

  • Handle Grip
  • Handle Mount
  • LANC collar
  • LANC cable
  • Standard Rear Door Plate
  • Alternate Rear Door Plate
  • Battery Adapter Plate
  • AC power supply
