Product Description

The Atomos Ninja 2 Video Recorder is an HDMI recorder and 800 x 480 resolution monitor that records up to 1080/30p/60i resolution directly from your camera's sensor to an HDD or SSD in Apple's ProRes or Avid's DNxHD edit-ready codecs. Color precision records at 10-bit, even from an 8-bit sensor and color sampling at 4:2:2. Recording an 8-bit signal in 10-bit won't increase the quality of the signal but will let you work with the signal in post-production as if it's 10-bit, meaning you can add effects and not see jagged lines and other artifacts. Being able to record direct from the sensor lets you bypass your camera's compression and instead have the first compression be in an edit-ready codec. Generally, the less compressions, the less image degradation. The operating system is AtomOS 3.0, featuring sophisticated focus and exposure tools and SmartLog, which lets you log in and out points on your footage and tag clips with keywords such as "good shot" and "bad shot".

Can't wait to get out and start shooting!!!

The small screen makes it very difficult for it to be used as a monitor.
John
Interestingly, the Ninja 1 dock from Atomos works fine.

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 purchased 2 of these wonderful units ...The operation and simplicity of use is amazing. if you are looking for a wonderful , easy way to monitor AND!, record your hi def video, this unit is the answer. Yes, I will agree it seems to a bit of a price to purchase it indeed, yet you will find after the first big shoot the price becomes non existent. From the first use I fell head over heals for this product. It took only a few minutes to get my wife whom shoots with me, to become a proponent of this recorder. We have gone through most formats of recording video starting way back with VHS. I have to say this recorder cleans up so much muss and fuss being it batteries, cables or other things in the past 20 years. To date this recorder tops everything I have used. A long recording time on the 2 batteries supplied was very nice! Yet I always have back up batteries. Pop the hard drive in and record hours of crisp clean video. Remove it and pop it into the supplied docking station and wham!, you are now ready to edit and do what you will with your videos. I have just begun learning all the wonders of this unit and it excites me to know I will be spending more time with them. I have no reason to lie to anyone about this unit. Its seems pricey yet hey..! You get what you pay for. I bought 2 thus far.. I KNOW as fact I will be looking for additional units. This is a KEEPER!

using this with a C100. HDMI TC and Rec Trigger work as billed. I"m using a SanDisc 256mb SSD and that works fine.

ok, drive "trays" are more like plastic shims that wrap the drive. the drive release is poor. its not a positive release to let you know the drive is or is not latched. it simply relies on the case fitting tight. You have to pull the drive hard to get it out which doesn't feel right. You'd expect it to slide out more easily.

drive dock works !

the quality of the monitor part is below the built in screen of the C100. its nice for logging as you can see TC rolling and that you are in record. Its slightly more than SD res, unlike the Samuari with 1280 res screen. Color on it isn't bad, good enough to see you have basic WB and exposure but not for critical viewing.

the touch screen menu is a bit odd, but you get used to it.

the build quality is marginal. while its an aluminum frame, its 4 parts screwed together. its not one of those solid sound devices cases by any stretch. its nice for studio and indoors shooting where it can expect generally nice treatment. take it on location, harsh weather thats another story...plan on bagging it one way or the other.

it works, but its not a sound devices either. if you are on a budget it'll get the job done.

ProRes Vs DNxHD vs AVChd ? you may find that the built in codec is pretty strong compared to the others. still they are maybe a little bit better for non-challanging material like chromakey which is what I got it for.

battery life is really good with SSD, couple hrs. 2 batteries could cover you most of a day. AC power supply also works if you need to.
