AtomOS 11 Operating System
Built for the new Ninja, the AtomOS 11 operating system equips your monitor with new features along with an improved icon interface for more intuitive operation. Focus Peaking, Zoom, Atomos and ARRI False Color, EL Zone colorized exposure, Safe Areas, RecordAssit, PlayBackAssist, SegmentPro, and Cine Guides are among the many monitor assist functions available. The AtomHDR processing engine allows for real-time Log to PQ/HLG previewing.
5.2" Touchscreen Display
The 5.2" IPS touchscreen of the Ninja offers a 1920 x 1080 resolution with 1000 cd/m² brightness for viewing in broad daylight. The 10-bit color processing, Rec.709 color gamut, and Calibrite ColorChecker Display Pro/Plus calibration support ensure color-accurate, high-quality monitoring of your footage.
Comprehensive Color
The Ninja supports the use of select Sony, ARRI, JVC, RED, FUJIFILM, Nikon, Panasonic, and Canon log formats. Upload custom 3D LUTs to the monitor and output HDR conversion to Log, HLG, PQ, or Dolby Vision formats.
HDMI Interface, ProRes RAW Recording
  • The Ninja's HDMI input and output ports support up to DCI 4K video at 60 fps in monitoring, recording, and playback modes. 3.5K RAW at 60 fps footage is supported with select cameras.

Optional Atomos CONNECT Module
The Ninja is compatible with the separately available Atomos CONNECT module to access cloud workflows like C2C, Atomos Edit, and Atomos RemoteView via Atomos Cloud Studio. The CONNECT module adds 12G-SDI connectivity, AirGlu wireless timecode and control, Wi-Fi 6, and GigE Ethernet to your monitor interface. This allows you to send video signals to live streaming platforms, via NDI, and to custom RTMP/S destinations. You can also convert HDMI to SDI and SDI to HDMI video using the CONNECT module.
AtomX Cast
Use the AtomX CAST to transform your Ninja into a compact, fully featured production studio. This component enables advanced multi-input switching from four 1080p HDMI sources, the application of graphic overlays, and the ability to use a USB UVC webcam output for enhanced web conferencing and live streaming.
SSD Recording
The Ninja is compatible with the Atomos Master Caddy II and Master Caddy III 2.5" hard drive units which support direct recording to the drives. You can also record onto compact AtomX SSDmini drives and CFAST II cards using a separately available adapter.
Power Options
An L-series battery plate on the back of the Ninja can support NP-F L-series batteries outputting 5.8 to 7.2V. A USB-C port supports 30W PD power delivery with the included cable. Use the included dummy eliminator to power the monitor via DC power sources.

Will a RED Komodo be compatible with the Ninja's 6K recording capabilities?
Asked by: Daniel
No, the RED DIGITAL CINEMA KOMODO 6K Digital Cinema Camera only outputs up to 4096x2160 60p which is less than RED's internal 6144 x 3240 up to 40 fps in REDCODE RAW internally, so the 6k recording capabilities of the Atomos Ninja 5.2" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor cannot be utilized.

Does the Atomos Ninja include a single battery?
Asked by: Tim
The Atomos Ninja 5.2" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor does not include a battery, but does include the Atomos AtomX Sony L-Series Type Battery Eliminator, BH #ATOMDCA001, for connecting to an AC adapter. For a battery, the Genaray 2 x NP-F770 4400mAh Batteries & 2 x Compact Chargers Kit, BH #GENPF770CS, would be recommended.

Can the new Atomos Ninja record 4k at 50/60p for the Nikon Z7ii or Z6ii ?
Asked by: Sean
Yes, the Atomos Ninja 5.2" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor can record 4K resolutions up to 60P, however the Nikon Z6 II Mirrorless Camera can not output 4K footage over 29.97P, so you would only be able to record in 50/60P using the Nikon Z7 II Mirrorless Camera with the monitor.

Yes, the Canon C100mk II is compatible with the Atomos NINJA. However it will only record what comes out of the HDMI port of the camera which is 8bit 4:2:2. The NINJA will not support RAW recording with the C100 Mk II.

When used with the Atomos Connect, will this Ninja unit record a raw signal from the Sony FS700 like the Ninja V+ can?
Asked by: Christopher
Actually the extension unit cited above (https://bhpho.to/3uU16WL) is for the FS7, not the FS700. The FS700R (and FS700U with 4k upgrade) already has sdi raw out without any extension unit.

No, the Atomos Ninja models only work with traditional SATA type media. NVMe SSD's currently are not supported. We recommend the following Drive for the Atomos Ninja. Angelbird 1TB AtomX SSDmini BH #ANATOMXM1000
