    The Atomos Ninja 2 Video Recorder is an HDMI recorder and 800 x 480 resolution monitor that records up to 1080/30p/60i resolution directly from your camera's sensor to an HDD or SSD in Apple's ProRes or Avid's DNxHD edit-ready codecs. Color precision records at 10-bit, even from an 8-bit sensor, and color sampling at 4:2:2. Recording an 8-bit signal in 10-bit won't increase the quality of the signal but will let you work with the signal in post-production as if it's 10-bit, meaning you can add effects and not see jagged lines and other artifacts. Being able to record direct from the sensor lets you bypass your camera's compression and instead have the first compression be in an edit-ready codec. Generally, the less compressions, the less image degradation.

    The operating system is AtomOS 3.0, featuring sophisticated focus and exposure tools and SmartLog, which lets you log in and out points on your footage and tag clips with keywords such as "good shot" and "bad shot."

    10-bit 4:2:2 / 220Mbps / 2.5" HDD or SSD
    The Ninja-2 takes any uncompressed HD or SD source and encodes it in real-time to 10-bit, 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD at up to 220Mbps.

    Because Ninja is portable, it can record from the ultimate image source, the sensor of the camera.

    Recording is always in 10-bit, even from an 8-bit source. Color registries are added for integration into higher bit-depth graphics from CG, animation and special effects. This avoids banding and makes editing and grading, in fact any precision effect, more accurate.
    AtomOS 3.0 Touchscreen
    The real power of the Ninja 2 comes from AtomOS -- an innovative and intuitive operating system.

    Unit Name
    Name your Ninja 2 by project or camera. Media drives and recorded files are subsequently named with the unit name upon formatting.
    Time Remaining

    Inputs / Outputs
    HDMI input & output
    Accurately assess focus and exposure with:

    Focus Peaking
    Adjustable Zebra
    False Color Twin Mode
    Blue Only - exposure check

    Log in and out points on your footage and tag these clips with keywords such as 'good shot', 'bad shot' etc.

    With the Ninja 2 this part of the post production process can now be done on set, or on the move, with Continuous Power.

    SmartLog operates while in Monitor or Playback mode / it saves time, money and allows fast, collaborative pre-editing prior to final post production.
    Master Caddy Slot
    Simple, locking HDD/SSD system / a safe, practical solution to media management.
    HDD or SSD
