Atomos Ninja V overview

  • 1Description

The Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor is a 5" on-camera monitor/recorder that records and plays back DCI 4K, UHD 4K, and HD video from purpose-built mini-SSDs. It features a 10-bit FRC IPS screen with a brightness of 1000 cd/m², which makes it suitable for use in both exterior and interior conditions. The AtomHDR display technology allows you to accurately monitor your log gamma footage without having to view flat, washed-out looking images or use a LUT to compress the dynamic range and color space. The monitor supports popular log formats from Sony, Canon, Panasonic, ARRI, RED, and JVC cameras. The settings only affect viewing, with recorded video remaining unaltered.

Built to withstand the rigors of production, the Ninja V features an aluminum chassis and powers from a single L-series battery. Additional features include a variety of onscreen exposure analysis, framing, and focus assist tools, as well as anamorphic de-squeeze. A power supply and SSD Caddy are included with the unit.

Designed with an interface that differs somewhat from prior units, the Ninja V's HDR functions are accessed through the MON buttons and its ProRes options are chosen via the arrows on the unit's upper left corner. The Ninja V can record to both AtomX SSDmini or standard 2.5" SSD drives, fitting up to 150 minutes of 4K video on an 1TB drive. Separately available AtomX Ethernet/NDI and SYNC Expansion Modules enable you to output live video over IP or add wireless timecode for multicamera shoots respectively.


With AtomHDR you can monitor up to ten stops of dynamic range of your camera's LOG image. Most conventional monitors can only display six or seven stops, which is fine for standard footage; but a Log image will look overly flat. It is also superior to monitoring with a loaded LUT, which can clip the highlights and mask shadows.

4K 60p Capabilities

Record high-resolution 4K footage in DCI or UHD formats up to 60 fps, including 24 and 25 fps for a more film-like aesthetic. All recordings are stored as high-quality Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR files with 10-bit 4:2:2 chroma subsampling. A variety of bit rates are available to fit your project and storage needs.

SSD Recording

Record to standard 2.5" SSD drives or to compact AtomX SSDmini drives, capturing up to 150 minutes of 4K video on a 1TB drive.

Audio I/O

Input/output audio via HDMI or add external audio via the 3.5mm Line In/Mic In port; output audio using the 3.5mm headphone port for convenient audio monitoring.

5" Daylight Viewable Screen

The Ninja V features a 5" IPS LCD screen that is illuminated by a bright 1000 cd/m² LED backlight, making it possible to view in daylight without requiring a hood. Plus, the screen is also color calibrated from the factory to ensure accurate image representation.

HDR Signal Management

Log and HDR signals can be difficult to monitor with conventional equipment. Though, with the Ninja V's built-in HDR signal management functions, the log signal can be converted to the PQ standard for compatibility with existing consumer and professional HDR equipment.

Anamorphic De-Squeeze

The Ninja V supports Anamorphic de-squeeze, allowing you to comfortably view anamorphic footage with a squeeze of 2x, 1.5x, 1.33, and Panasonic's 8:3.

Edit-Ready Recording

Incoming video signals can be recorded in a wide range of Apple ProRes and Avid DNx codecs which maintain high quality while not requiring the storage space of uncompressed video. Both ProRes and DNx are edit-friendly, requiring no conversion in post-production to ensure smooth playback and compatibility with most common video editing software.

Optional Expansion Modules

The Ninja V features a bidirectional high-speed video port along with power and audio which enables the use of the AtomX Ethernet/NDI and SYNC modules along with future module releases.

    Atomos Ninja V reviews

    Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Right-Sized Monitor/Recorder The Ninja V is my second recorder, the first being a 7" Ninja Inferno. I shoot a lot of location video, and recording low-compression video is a huge boost in image quality. More important, I can shoot with a Sony A9 or A7Riii without the phony 29 minute clip limit. Even with lower brightness, the V is easily visible outdoors, without a hood. How did I ever do without one. The Ninja V does not come with the handy carrying case like the 7" versions. I find that a Lowepro Dashpoint AVC2 semi-rigid zipper case is the ideal size for the Ninja V, a couple of batteries and cables. Running mobile, everything needs a secure way to carry the essentials.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small, robust, but a little noisey Just got my Ninja V, and the solid metal frame feels strong and sturdy, nice bright, and hi res screen and UI, but I'd say you'd get a few sound recordists looking at you when shooting in small/quiet rooms in interview type situations, as the fan runs constantly, and you can't turn it off as far as I can figure out, it's not super loud, but it's noticeable. It can fit standard 2.5 SSD's with the supplied caddy easy enough if you don't want to fork out more for mini SSDs, it just pokes out the side about an inch.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Unfinished product 1. Unlike Ninja Blade, Ninja V wont recognize signal from Canon 5DmkIV and make 2:2 pulldown automatically (I shoot PAL1080p25). Even when you set it up manually (which is time consuming), after powering off, Ninja V it resets and you have to do it again. I dont have time for this flaw. Its just waste of my time. 2. Atomos calibration is not working. 3. No Manual! Screen is great but software is unfinished. I expect from my gear not to slow me down and Ninja V is just doing that. I make mistakes because of it.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sound recording is bad I was very pleased with the monitor itself, but found out my unit records audio with a weird buzz/interference in the background. I tried different microphones, and the same issue persisted. Also, the "remote" port is twisted as though it wasn't properly placed/assembled during manufacturing. I'm returning my Atomos Ninja V hoping to get another one that doesn't have this sound problem/ twisted port.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from After one day this thing stinks First, I have a Ninja Flame which works well with my Panasonic DVX200. The Ninja V doesn't come with any documentation, but that's okay because there are quite a few videos available online, including one showing how to connect the DVX200 with the Flame. The Atomos web site also shows that the DVX200 is supported by the Ninja V. However, the Ninja V does not recognize the DVX200, does not accept the DVX200 record setup (yes, I used the work around that I used for the Ninja Flame), and doesn't recognize the Luts that I've loaded. As the headline says, this thing stinks. I will rewrite this review if Atomos corrects the problem or if a solution is ever published.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not yet ready for prime time It appears that the software is not yet ready for prime time.  Unit doesnt sync with a full frame HDMI signal out of a Nikon D800 whereas other external monitors have no problem. Works fine at 95% output but at 100% it loses sync on bright images.  Documentation is inadequate and virtually non-existent.  Looks like it was rushed out the door prematurely. Documentation aside, if they fix the HDMI sync issues it will be a fine unit.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small, lightweight, and with great visibility outdoors! This is my first monitor ever and I am glad I waited for the 5 version. The screen is plenty big enough for composing my shots and making sure I am properly focused. The monitor does an amazing job when shooting in any log profile by giving you an accurate simulation of it in rec.709 allowing you to properly expose in high dynamic environments. ProRes and DnxHR are amazing codecs with minimal compression allowing you to push grading even farther. I totally recommend the ninja v.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from My third Atomos Recorder I have a pair of Atomos recorders, Inferno's for other cameras. I was thinking to buy a third, but decided to wait for this. My biggest concern was going from 7" to 5" and from 1500 nits to 1000. I decided on the V to keep the GH5 system light. There is not yet a manual. It was not a problem for me because I already know the Inferno, but for a newbee, you are going to have to download and Inferno manual to understand this device. The shortened SSD drives are nowhere to be found. The Ninja V shipped with the standard Atomos Master Caddie. The drive sticks out about an inch on the left side. This is an aesthetic issue not an operation problem. I have it running off a PTap battery on a Ronin MX. It is eating batteries. I will give it a battery test tomorrow shortly on the 5200 ma Sony L included in the power kit. I like the new menu layout. Options appear along the bottom rather than in a right side popup. That makes using the menus while recording less intrusive than the Inferno menus. I gave it 4 stars because there is no manual. I hope that does not mean it shipped half baked and I am about to become a beta tester.
