Product Description


Every trait of the Atomos Ninja Blade’s material and operational design makes it the world’s leading smart production recorder, monitor and playback device with HDMI connectivity. Deliberately designed to provide mission critical consistency and unassuming intuitive operation, the Atomos Ninja Blade is built from aircraft grade aluminium. This manufacturing foundation makes this production recorder both feather-light and robust; therefore, not only well suited for use in studios but also the most challenging field environments.

Atomos’ SuperAtom IPS 8-bit 400nit calibrated monitor exhibits high brightness range Log footage with the bright intensity and vitality as it appears in the real world to the human eye. The Atomos Ninja Blade quite literally brings post production HDR monitoring to the field.

An update to HDR on the existing range is proudly offered gratis by Atomos. This entry level HDR monitor therefore future-proofs your production for HDR, allowing you to use your current HDR Log camera.

New monitoring tools like waveform with luma, RGB parade and vectorscope (including zoom) are all supported by one million pixels at 325ppi, making the SuperAtom IPS 5” 1280x720 16:9 display on the Ninja Blade one of the most visually stunning monitors available. The Blade’s superb HD monitoring competencies are only developed by a wide array of monitor assist tools such as adjustable focus peaking, zebra, false colour, blue only and grid guides.

Ninja Blade records and encodes pristine 10/8-bit HD 4:2:2 video, and up to four channels of 48kHz/16-bit audio, in real-time to either a Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD edting codec directly to 2.5" Hard Disk Drive (HDD) or Solid State Drive (SSD) media via a removable Atomos Master Caddy.
