Enter the Atomos Ninja

18 February, 2011 by IF

The Ninja by-passes in-camera compression to record your pristine, uncompressed images straight from the HDMI connector of your DSLR or camcorder directly to Apple ProRes – while you're recording!

Now there's no need for capture cards or I/O boxes Final Cut Pro users can just go straight from lens to timeline!


The Ninja implements Apple ProRes in hardware to give you real-time, 10-bit recording anytime, anywhere. It takes advantage of low cost, modern technology by utilising HDMI capable pro video and consumer camcorders as well as DSLRs. Record directly to the Ninja on location in super high quality, for the most streamlined, affordable Final Cut Pro workflow available today.

Powering video devices on location or away from studio environments can be a problem. We decided that two batteries were better than one and designed a unique Active/Passive Dual Battery system that means you need never run out of juice on a shoot. When the active battery is depleted, Ninja automatically switches to the fully-charged passive battery. You can simply swap batteries on the fly without affecting operation, and we include two batteries with every Ninja!

Keep your pristine footage in the Master Caddy on the shelf for archiving after production. The drives are cheap, the format is high quality and the original recording will always be there for peace of mind. Before Ninja, storing your rushes on the original digital media was unthinkable, now it's a no-brainer.
