Record like a Ninja with the Atomos Ninja V Monitor Recorder

Along with the launch of new mirrorless cameras comes the launch of the Atomos Ninja V 5” monitor recorder.  These cameras come with 4k 10-bit HDMI output and log gammas that work perfectly with the newly released HDR capable Ninja V.

The Panasonic GH5 and GH5S, along with the new Canon EOS R, Nikon Z6 and Fujifilm X-T3 are taking advantage of the Ninja V 4k 10-bit 422 recording to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR.  These results from the Ninja V are off the scale with endless shades of colour for smoother gradients and overall better grading in all NLEs.

The Ninja V possesses a 5.2” 10-bit HDR monitor with an impressive 1000 nits of output.  Its sleek body made from aluminum is designed for maximum durability whilst weighing just 360g!  It measures 25mm thick therefore it is easily attached to any camera rig.

Ninja worthy recording!

The Ninja V5 eliminates your camera’s internal compression and time limits.  You can record up to 4Kp60 10-bit HDR video straight from your camera’s sensor over HDMI 2.0.  When teamed with a 1TB AtomX SSDmini 150 minutes of 4k recording can be achieved on just one drive.  Once you are done the edit-ready ProRes and DNxHR recordings can be stored on very reasonably priced SSD drives.

HDR/SDR perfection

10+ stops of dynamic range in real-time from Log/PQ/HLG systems are displayed on the Ninja V.  Your images can be viewed in daylight extremely clearly on the Ninja’s featured anti-reflection screen.  You have the option of calibrating for perfect colour every single time and playout to HDR or SDR TV is also a feature.

Playback pocket size!

With Atomos allowing for one-touch operation and accurate setup – this ensures a perfect recording every single time.  As anyone will confirm recording is not complete until it has been checked. The Ninja V enables this with instant playback, slow motion, and frame by frame analysis.

You can record 4K HDR gaming using the Ninja V.  It is a stand-alone system for 4k UHD, HDR, and high frame rate capture, therefore, eliminating complicated PC setups.  Simple recording, instant review, and monitoring are all features. Correct HD flags are automatically included for uploading to YouTube.

The Ninja V has a bi-directional, high speed, expansion port for I/O for video, audio, and power.  It also enables audio input directly from your camera. Depending on your rig you can choose from digital source via HDMI or analog input via the stereo 3.5mm line or mic socket.
