The recorder/monitor works like a charm. The recorder is ideal for primary or backup recording. The monitor is bright and clear even in daylight and has all the pro features you'd expect.

If you have an issue and need support: forget it. no anwser.

This will be returned due to Atomos not responding to Emails, tickets and no phone contact. I love Atoms products. I have issues with Multi device trigger record. I have opened up three tickets one week apart. NO response, NO answer NO phone contact. Atomos used to have people who answered the phone and gave great technical support. It is a common story now. Look at how many people comment on no answer to their ticket. Atomos used to care about their customers.

Ninja V - newbie

A great addition to my Canon R6 for B camera on our video shoots. As a monitor, I and able mount the screen on the small rig to see clearly from a comfortable distance when operating solo and when outside in the sunlight- no more squinting ; and the Ninja V delivers extras like the wave form and focus peaking for accurate exposures.

I used this to unlock NLOG and HLOG for my Nikon D780. This allows me to take advantage of the full dynamic range of my camera. The Ninja is user friendly, and if you have any struggles there is a plethora of YouTube videos covering it. This particular package fills the holes of everything you will need to (except for the HDMI to Micro HDMI cable I need for Nikon D780) start creating professional productions right away. The screen is bright and offers a larger and more accurate picture of what you will see when you get home to edit. I have just scratched the surface of what this can do, and I already feel like I have gotten my money's worth. The only con I see is that while filming in 96 degrees and relatively high humidity, it began to overheat in direct sunlight after about 30 minutes of use. Stood in the shade with it off for about 5 minutes and was able to finish my shot.

I like the redundancy it offers

By Darrin

As many know, recording to SD cards can be problematic. I bought this unit so I could both redundantly capture footage from my camera as well as use the display as a much larger monitor. Other than having to find a way to mount it, it has performed very well so far. Be aware, that this does not come with the H.265 option - that is currently $99 extra, but not everyone's editor can use that format. There is an added cost to get a usb cable to read the files off of the SSD, but that is fairly inexpensive. I've barely scratched the surface of the features on this, but I'm liking it so far. If I recall, I think I can also mirror the displayed image left to right so that if you're in front of the camera, it acts more like a mirror and movement to the left or right seems more natural in that situation. Will update the review if that's not the case...

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.

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

Paired with the EOS R6, I only get the 59.97 framerate option in FullHD. Switching to 4k I get all the framerate options available. Is this a limitation of the EOS R6 or the Ninja V?
Asked by: Michael
Richard (Staff) gave the definitive answer, but I could mention that the sony A7S3 has a similar issue (you can get only 23.98 or 59.94) in HD, but the Lumix S1, S1R, S1H all are able to do 29.97 in HD paired with the Ninja V (as well as 23.98 and 59.94).
