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 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!

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.
