Filmmaker Sidney Diongzon recently met up with a group of friends and fellow YouTube creators in Manhattan. The trip presented Sidney to run his new Ninja V+ through its paces. Would it transform the way he works with his trusted Sony AS7 III mirrorless camera?
The Ninja V+ is the next stage in the evolution of the multi-award winning Atomos Ninja, delivering up to 8Kp30 and 4Kp120 continuous recording in Apple ProRes RAW while inheriting HDR, 4Kp60 RAW and video as well as HDp120 slow motion from it’s little brother, Ninja V.
With the ability to capture in 8Kp30 and 4Kp120, the Ninja V+ allows you to stay ahead of the game and manage your projects whilst ensuring that you have the flexibility to grow your system. Future-proofed quality and formats allow you to stay compatible with newly released and existing cameras, in a world where new cameras are released frequently and technology is advancing at an incredible pace.
The “extra real estate” of the bright, 5-inch touchscreen on Ninja V+ meant Sidney could see more of the image and even though he had access to a sun visor, he found he didn’t need it even working in the middle of a sunny day. Ninja V+ is also packed with a range of monitoring tools that enabled Sidney to work analyze each frame and shoot with confidence. His go-to tools are the waveform, guides, focus peaking, and Sidney’s own custom LUTs, which he could use for continuous reference during recording to check exposure, compose each shot, and test different looks.
The trip to New York gave Sidney an opportunity to really test Ninja V+. The device does not disappoint and offers new ways for Sidney to get more from his existing camera gear. This is the true power of the device and Sidney has happily joined the growing number of filmmakers who choose to use Ninja V+ to add a new dimension to their creative toolbox.
