  • Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor

    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.

    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.

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 Recording Monitor with 2TB Sony AtomX SSDmini Kit is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 27.
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.
Date published: 2018-11-16
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.
Date published: 2018-10-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have The size is perfect for run & gun. It works as advertised. Be advised that the coiled HDMI cable advertised with this unit will not support 60P. You have to purchase the more expensive cable on another page with the Atomos logo on the plugs for 60P to work.
Date published: 2018-11-26
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.
Date published: 2018-11-01
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lots of Color Noise in the Blacks I shoot TV Series and we wanted to add this to our other Recorders but with a smaller setup.  Shooting on Canon Log, the Ninja V on Prores has a lot of noise in the blacks.  Weve had to use de-noise software on every shot so far that has any low light or shadow environment.  Upon use theres lots of horizontal color banding noise throughout.  We contacted Atomos and have not heard back.  And additionally weve watched the video by the CEO where he talks about how to avoid noise in the blacks.  Simply put, footage is much worse than the 4:2:0 footage captured in the camera or on our other Atomos 4:2:2 recorders.

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.

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.

Is this compatible with the Canon 80D ?

Is this compatible with the Canon 80D ?
Asked by: Lissa
Hi. The short answer is no. There's a couple of things to consider with you want to pair with with a 80D. One, does the 80D have a "clean" output? You can test this on your TV and diving in the camera menu. The manual gives no information about it. A "clean" output means none of the settings are displayed on the HDMI output. Without a "clean" output, your footage will not be usable for editing. Second, the HDMI output on the 80D is likely 1080p/24, please verify. The Ninja V is a 4k/60 recorder. So you're paying for features you won't use. I hope that helps.

Hello, you can most definitely record from a gaming device HDMI source no problems. and yes sine we don't make any SSD's or media, you'll have to purchase that separately. currently we have no announcement on an accessories kit for the ninja v.
