After about 6 weeks using the Ninja 2 as an outboard recorder with my Nikon D800, I can say that it works quite well. With proper settings in the D800, "clean" HDMI is sent to the Ninja 2, where I record on an SSD drive. By "clean" I mean the files are not compressed the way they would be if recording to the camera's internal card. Naturally, these video files are rather large. However, using an SSD makes recording and transfer easy and reliable. I DO NOT use a spinning drive (which would be cheaper) because the recorder may be bumped during a shoot and disrupt the drive. I edit in Final Cut Pro X. Thus, it is very helpful to record in ProRes422 because there is no "conversion" as the files are imported into FCPX. The Ninja 2 offers other recording formats, giving you a bunch of options that are easily selected through the menu screens. This helps improve video workflow and is a valuable feature.
There's an HDMI out, which allows for the connection of another monitor or other accessory needing HDMI.
Menu screens are clear and easy. The buttons are large. Files can be viewed on the screen and selected individually for playback.
By the way, the SDD drive needs to be installed into a "caddy" that fits into the Ninja 2. This takes maybe 2 minutes. If you're going to use multiple drives on a job, be sure to get extra caddies, only 1 comes with the Ninja 2.
To transfer files from the drive to your computer, you remove it from the recorder and connect it to a USB docking station that is included with the Ninja 2. No worries here, it all works simple and easy.
There are a bunch of other features, all of which you can find in the manual online. No need to rehash here.

Here are a few things I find less than awesome.

In spite of the one star rating from the guy that could not get the sticker off of the protective film (instead of just pealing off the film), I give this one five stars. It permits me to record long videos, up to the amount of storage you put into it and the video is superb *1080p from my Nikon D800. It gives me the option to use my Nikon800 as a high end extra video camera at weddings when I need one. Also has nice features that I don't need but you never know what the future holds.

The downside is the cost. It's a lot of money for what it is and will take some time to recoup the investment of $1000 plus the cost of cables and hard drives. I would still recommend it to anyone that wants to use their dslr to record high quality video without the time limits of the camera.

I rented an Atomos Ninja Blade for a recent shoot with my Canon 5Diii. Here's what I expected, based reading a ton of reviews:

1) Seamless recording to an external device
2) Increased latitude in grading, due to 10-bit ProRes file
3) Solid build quality
4) A nice image

Here's what I found:

1) 26 clips recorded on the internal card, 48 on the Atomos unit. The unit for some reason often stopped partway through the recording and after a few seconds created a new clip, leading to lots of gaps in the footage and a total pain in the tuckus.
2) The ProRes files had a harsher fall-off in the overexposed areas (more of a clip and less of a falloff), and generally a narrower dynamic range than the in-camera clips, based on side-by-side comparisons in my NLE.
3) Plasticky, lightweight build.
4) Beautiful image, very visible outdoors.

I used an extremely fast SSD that was on a list of recommended drives.

I did not purchase from Amazon this time as i found a great deal on it with case and all the accessories for $550. it turns out he sold it cheap because he bought a HDD that was not recommended for the unit. I lucked out. i already had 2 Samsung SSD's and it works like a charm for me. I updated the firmware when I got and have not had any trouble what so ever.

The unit allows me to monitor my framing while shooting and has some awesome features. The ability to record 4:2.2 is great. I have not used it a whole lot yet only some test footage but i am very satisfied with it so far. I'm lucky that i did not have the horror stories with stickers and defective unit.

Trying to get the remote record to work with my cam is my only worry at this point. i know that it is the compatibility of my cam and not a defective unit. I'm currently using the NEX EA50, if any of you guys got the remote to work on this cam please comment with a reply as to how you did it.

Edit 5/29/14:
I got word back from Atomos on how to get my ninja 2 to trigger recording when I press record on my Sony NEX EA50:

You'll have to using the "Rolling Timecode" option to do so.
After tapping the timecode to get the the timecode menu, set the Triggering to "None/Timecode" and source to "HDMI."
Once you've done this, you should be able to tap the "TC>0" icon, to turn it Yellow.
On some versions of the firmware it's in the timecode menu, on others it's on the home screen.

Once this is on, the Ninja will record any time that the timecode is counting up, and stop anytime the time code stops counting.

Hope this helps!
