The perfect partner for your DSLR or mirrorless camera
Atomos 4k HDMI monitor/recorders like the Ninja V transform the latest photo cameras into awesome video shooting machines by recording 4k video directly from the camera in extremely high quality. Depending on the camera used, frame rates of up to 60fps can be recorded in industry standard Apple ProRes or Avid DNx codecs for easy editing. The Ninja V combines this with professional grade monitoring on a calibrated HDR 1000nit high brightness screen that allow users to perfectly compose and focus, using these amazing sensors’ full dynamic range, even outdoors. An extensive range of exposure and monitoring tools includes automated presets for popular cameras and user defined creative looks. The AtomHDR engine makes creation of HDR or standard video simple. Professional level audio connections and monitoring are also on Atomos monitors.
The 10-bit mirrorless video revolution
The launch of the Ninja V coincides with several new mirrorless cameras with 4k 10-bit HDMI output and extended Log gammas curves that are used by the Ninja V - Giving the user instant, simple HDR production. The new Canon EOS R, Nikon Z6 and Z7 and Fujifilm X-T3 now join the Panasonic GH5 and GH5S in taking full advantage of the Ninja V 4k 10-bit 422 recording to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR. The results from the Ninja V and these cameras are extraordinary, with billions of shades of color and wider brightness for smooth gradients. This results in better grading and finishing for both HDR and standard video.
