Complete control. Ninja V + ProRes RAW
Photographers have long known about the benefits of RAW for stills. Capturing Apple ProRes RAW video with the Ninja V over HDMI unlocks complete control of the video image at the highest quality possible. Starting with the Nikon Z6 & Z7, with other cameras being added soon, users can experience RAW video to get the maximum dynamic range, color accuracy & detail. Colors can be easily matched & the extra information means footage can be easily be manipulated in post-production for maximum creativity.

Love what you see on screen
The Ninja V delivers a stunning viewing experience in a portable 5” multi-purpose device. The screen has 1000 nits peak brightness for daylight viewing, 10+ stops of dynamic range displayed, & 4K input. The 1920x1080 display has amazing depth & vibrancy thanks to color accuracy, 10-bit processing & the ability to be fully calibrated by the user.
The unique AtomHDR engine processes the incoming Log/RAW/HDR signals from your camera or device & displays in all its HDR glory on the Ninja V screen. There are matching profiles for a plethora of cameras, with more added as they emerge. Prefer to work is Rec.709? The Ninja V has you covered with the ability to load custom LUTs to match your workflow.
Ninja V takes exactly what your camera sensor is capturing, enhances it & allows you to view & record it in amazing detail. This portable powerhouse gives you complete confidence in what you’re capturing, so you’re free to push creative boundaries more than ever before.

Capture every frame & make it your own
Behind the stunning screen, Ninja V’s massive advanced computing power adds production grade recording to your camera. Giving flexibility is the foundation of every specification of this workhorse. Ninja V records in a wide range of codecs: Apple ProRes, ProRes RAW & Avid DNx to enable wide compatibility across camera types & edit software.

Unlock the full potential of DLSR & mirrorless
The diversity of codecs makes the Ninja V recordings compatible with all major editing software packages. In terms of capture, virtually any HDMI or SDI source is
supported, including cameras from Nikon, Fujifilm, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Z-Cam, Olympus, RED & ARRI.

Every detail, meticulously preserved
Recording RAW gives users the maximum creative scope in post-production. Working with the unprocessed image as a starting point yields phenomenal results. Applying Apple ProRes technology compresses the RAW files allowing you to import, edit, manipulate & grade the pristine data without slowing down your edit.
Ninja V is built to capture RAW data directly from compatible camera’s sensors over HDMI, for recording in ProRes RAW. This takes an industry-leading premium codec & makes it accessible to owners of smaller, more cost effective mirrorless cameras.
Ninja V continues to evolve. The monitor’s features keeps improving with every new AtomOS release. Not only will additional ProRes RAW capable cameras be supported, other new features have constantly been added for free. Recent additions include a wider range of frame guides (1:1, 4:5, 1:91:1 & 9:16) - perfect for social media content creation. A nine-grid overlay makes composing using the rule of thirds easy. The addition of an ARRI style false color scale bolsters Ninja V’s impressive professional credentials. & this is still just the start.

Making multi-camera mainstream
You no longer need a huge budget or a highly skilled editor to produce perfectly synchronized, multicamera video. The optional AtomX SYNC module sits on the back of the Ninja V, integrating it into a Timecode Systems powered multi-camera sync network. The advanced long-range RF system is completely wireless, offering incredible accuracy & stability. Effortlessly synchronize your recordings with multiple camera & sound sources. With frame-accurate timecode embedded directly into each recording you can accurately edit together multiple video & audio sources effortlessly using automated functions in all popular editing software.

Big storage. Mini proportions
Shooting 4K in advanced formats like ProRes, DNx & ProRes RAW, requires storage media with ample volume, fast transfer times and high, sustained read and write speeds. The tough AtomX SSDmini drives complete the Ninja V’s digital workflow. Smaller than conventional SATA SSDs they are an affordable professional alternative to recording to a camera’s internal memory cards. Offering up to 2TB storage, a sequential read speed of up to 550MB/s and write speed up to 500MB/s, these drives can record up to 150 minutes of 4K ProRes on a single drive. And measuring 8cm long, 7.5cm wide and weighing as little as 88g, the custom built drives neatly fit the Ninja V’s compact proportions.
