Atomos Ninja V Reviews

Everything is great except one thing...

By Jason
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-11-23

The price of the SSD drive is excessive but it is well built. The monitor itself is great. No complaints.

Perfect for big shoots.

By Tom

This was exactly what I needed for an external monitor and an added bonus that it record's directly to the monitor in Apple ProRes. It really helps out on my bigger shoots and is beneficial to my workflow during the editing process. I highly recommend if you're looking for a monitor and external recorder!

Simply Excellent

Very bright and crisp. It has many helpful functions and codecs and is user friendly. You can pre-load your LUTs or looks and bring up all the exposure tools you could need and set frame guides. Playback is much easier than doing it via the camera. It also pulls power on battery reasonably efficiently. Highly recommended, especially for the DSLR/Mirrorless user!

An excellent value

If you are a hardcore videographer, then the larger (and more expensive) recording monitors may be a better fit for you, but for a hybrid shooter like me, a 5-inch recording monitor is perfect combo of fit and function... and price. An excellent value.

Essential for Small Mirrorless Rigs

I have few Monitors but this one it's the Monitor and recording Monitor.

A lot of issues in basic monitoring tools

By Alexander
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2022-10-23

When you start using it, it looks nice and fancy. They added support for wireless, cloud, different codec, but basic monitoring tools have bugs that mislead you. Eg zebra is off to ~5% - it start alerting sooner then zebra in camera or event then their own waveform, f-log monitoring with LUTS is a joke - levels handled incorrectly and output is clipped in shadows and highlights, when recording footage from Fuji cameras, files contain incorrect metadata. Company is definitely underinvesting into fixing the issues and focusing in adding new features to sell more devices. Buy, if you know what you do, have time to debug the issues or you don't care to much about what you see on your monitor. Otherwise consider alternatives.

question

Can I use it with Fujifilm Xh1 to record 60p 4K 10bit 422? What about Fujifilm Xt2?
Asked by: ek C.
You will be able to use the Ninja V with both cameras. However those cameras only output 4K at up to 30fps and 8-Bit 4:2:2. The camera most output at 60fps and 10-Bit for it to be recorded in that format, which those cameras do not.

There is no audio recorded in the video when I connected the Ninja V with my Sony A7iii? How to get the audio?
Asked by: RAJAN
If you are going HDMI out from your camera, into the HDMI port on the Ninja, you should receive whatever audio your camera is receiving. How are you getting audio into your Sony? Is there a setting within the camera's menu that can either deny or send audio through the camera's HDMI out port? I would start there. I've also found that the Atomos support personnel in the U.S. are extremely helpful with this sort of issue. There is a phone number to call their U.S. office in Oregon on the Atomos website.

I see the Ninja v plus records proxies at the same time as pro res. (i think) has there been an update that will allow the ninja v to to that? Please let me know.
Asked by: Thomas
H.265 HEVC is an optional paid activation for the Ninja V that allows for high quality, low bit rate capture. Unfortunately, it is not recording simultaneously with another format in the same device, but can be a back up to the internal recording on a camera. Further details can be seen here: https://www.atomos.com/h265-codec
