Both our Ninja kits include the Ninja 2, two SDD/HDD enclosures (drives not included), three Sony NP-F770 batteries, and a hard case. This version of the kit also includes a dual battery charger and a SSD docking station with both USB 3.0 and FireWire 800 connections.
The Atomos Ninja 2 Video Recorder provides top quality recording but also features monitoring functions that help assess exposure, focus and calibration. Also available are intuitive signal detection and file management tools. All tasks are performed in an advanced yet simple touchscreen operating environment.
Recording is at 10-bit, 4:2:2 quality in Apple ProRes directly onto HDD or SSD drives. And Avid DNxHD pre-release firmware is now available as a downloadable option from Atomos. Input and output are both by HDMI and an optional converter can be used to capture by SDI. Various serial control options include managing multiple Ninjas via an iPad over the web.
Designed compact and robust, and affording a workflow beyond just capture and output, Ninja can serve companion-like on and off the set. Also noteworthy is the Atomos history. Atomos recorders were used, for example, in James Cameron’s Deep Sea Challenge.
Please Note: You will need an HDMI cable to connect the recorder to your camera, and a compatible hard drive (SSD). If you don’t rent an HDMI cable or SSD with the Ninja 2, we will assume you have your own.
