The Ninja V has one important mission – to push the capabilities of your camera beyond its limits.
The Ninja V takes all your creativity and brings it to life in the video you capture, regardless of whether you’re shooting cinematic productions, or vlogs for your social media channel. Whether you shoot HDR or regular SDR. Whether you use a professional cinema camera or a prosumer mirrorless camera.
With a super bright 5” HDR display the Ninja V gives you increased dynamic range on-screen. Add to this the flexibility to record up to 4Kp60 over HDMI 2.0 or SDI* in a range of codecs including Apple ProRes, ProRes RAW and Avid DNxHR. With Ninja V you have complete flexibility to capture every detail perfectly during filming and have maximum latitude in post.
*Using AtomX SDI module
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 and Z7, with other cameras being added soon, users can experience RAW video to get the maximum dynamic range, colour accuracy and detail. Colours can be easily matched and the extra information means footage can be easily be manipulated in post-production for maximum creativity.
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, and 4K input. The 1920x1080 display has amazing depth and vibrancy thanks to colour accuracy, 10-bit processing and 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 and 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.
In short, Ninja V takes exactly what your camera sensor is capturing, enhances it and allows you to view and 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.
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 and Avid DNx to enable wide compatibility across camera types and edit software.
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 and ARRI.
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 and 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 and makes it accessible to owners of smaller, more cost effective mirrorless cameras.
The Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras are now fully compatible with ProRes RAW recording on Ninja V, with other exciting camera integrations coming soon.
Universally popular, Ninja V ticks more boxes for more filmmakers than any other 5” monitor on the market. And it will only get better.
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 and 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 colour scale bolsters Ninja V’s impressive professional credentials. And this is still just the start…
Ninja V is a stand-alone system for 4k UHD, HDR and high frame rate capture that eliminates expensive, complicated and unreliable PC setups. Ninja V enables simple recording, monitoring and instant review. Capture every detail in HDR and automatically include all the correct HDR flags ready for upload to YouTube. Ideal for games development testing, pre-release capture sessions or just to show of your skills!
You no longer need a huge budget or a highly skilled editor to produce perfectly synchronised, 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 and stability. Effortlessly synchronise your recordings with multiple camera and sound sources.
With frame-accurate timecode embedded directly into each recording you can accurately edit together multiple video and audio sources effortlessly using automated functions in all popular editing software.
Shooting 4K in advanced formats like ProRes, DNx and 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.
The sleek aluminium body of the Ninja V is crafted for maximum durability, weighing in at just 360g and measuring only 25mm thick, It’s designed to be portable and attach to any camera or rig with anti-rotation 1/4-20 screw mounts that allow for a wide variety of shoe-mounts, gimbal mounts, cages or other rig options.
One-touch operation gives you access to a complete suite of exposure and focus tools. Get custom 3D LUTs, false colour profiles, adjustable focus peaking and movable 1:1 and 2:1 pixel magnification. In addition, RGB parade and vectorscopes ensure perfect colours on your calibrated monitor.
Playback footage instantly on-set, either on-screen or out HDMI TV or monitor. Even watch in slow motion for more detailed frame-by-frame analysis of your shots. In addition you can deliver content via a Dolby Vision live HDMI out, in real-time, from your HDR camera to a compatible Dolby Vision HDR TV or monitor.
Like all Atomos Monitor-recorders, the Ninja V enables audio input directly from your camera. Choose from digital source via HDMI, or analogue input via the stereo 3.5mm line/mic socket, depending on your mic setup.
Metadata tag footage as you review on the Ninja V. Use the touchscreen to mark favourites, rejects and more. When you bring your footage into your edit timeline, immediately filter your tags.
The AtomRemote app for iOS and macOS works with the AtomX SYNC module to provide remote control features for the Ninja V/V+ via Bluetooth® LE and RF transmission.
The App also gives Ninja V and V+ users the ability to:
This new functionality is particularly useful if the Ninja is mounted in a position that is difficult to access, or when COVID safety protocols demand it. Using the AtomX SYNC to connect to the AtomRemote App over Bluetooth also makes seamless, timecode-synced multi-cam productions possible.
By taking advantage of the long-range RF transmission patented by Timecode Systems, AtomX SYNC can be used alone or in combination with AtomX SYNC, UltraSync ONE and UltraSync BLUE to synchronise apps and hardware devices.
To enable this functionality users need to upgrade their Ninja V or Ninja V+ with the latest firmware 10.72. The new AtomRemote App is available for free for all customers and is available via the Apple App Store.
The new firmware update also enables users to manage the fan speed of the Ninja V and Ninja V+, a frequent request from customers.
With several adaptive settings, the fan can be set to a low speed when the device is recording. Screen brightness can also be set to dip to extend record times. Turbo fan mode can be activated between takes to enable rapid cooling of the system.
