The industry leading 7” field monitor takes shape in the Atomos Flame Series. With 10-bit Colour processing, the AtomHDR engine processes 64 times more colour data than traditional 8-bit panels. The Atom Flame Series precisely displays 10 stops of the luminance detail of Log with 10 bit HDR Post Production colour accuracy. This is the first time this level of detail has been provided in a field monitor.

The significantly improved power management shooting system enables the user to continue shooting for longer in the field - for Rec709 standard dynamic range scenes the 1500nits brightness further assists the act of outdoor recording. The professional 4K/HD ProRes/DNxHR Recording, Playback and Editing that has made Atomos notorious also comes fitted as standard, of course.

Making use of the power of the 1500nit panel, the Atomos Flame Series of monitor-recorders are furnished with the AtomHDR engine. This panel operates in tandem with Atomos' patent pending image processing to resolve the brightness detail of Log camera signals with the colour accuracy of 10 bit HDR images mastered in post production,

The typical difficulties of exposing Log signals on a washed out image are removed in this way. With AtomHDR you simply frame, expose, focus and shoot. All major camera maker’s Log formats are supported - Sony, Canon, Panansonic, Arri, Red and JVC.

The Ninja Flame is a HDMI only model. It ships with a travel case to protect the unit in transit, accessories sold seperately.

Burn away the fog of Log

Camera Log (S-Log2, S-Log3, C-Log, V-Log etc) delivers maximum sensor detail in your recordings, but on monitors it looks washed out & makes judging exposure difficult. The compromise for filmmakers is to use LUT's to get the approximate "look" but sacrifice detail or use calibration cards, waveform & some “rule of thumb” figures to set exposure correct. AtomHDR is the solution, accurately displaying HDR Log footage with the brightness to see Log as the eye sees it. AtomHDR


Scenes ignite with 1500NITS of light

Not all scenes call for HDR Log recording. In situations that don't call for 10 stops of dynamic range, use the intensity of the 1500nit panel to monitor traditional Rec709 video at high brightness for outdoor monitoring.

Simply pick the right mode, HDR or High Bright, and get busy setting up your shot on the premium 7" display boasting 10-bit processing, 1920x1200 resolution, 325ppi pixel density, optional calibration to overcome natural LCD color drift and an arsenal of precision video setup tools for perfect shots every time.


Get more from your DSLR

Your recordings are instantly upgraded to the defacto standard for Hollywood, Indie & Broadcasters;

The perfect partner for DSLR and Mirrorless cameras with Log output over HDMI. From gimbal operators to Corporate to Indy filmmakers, your recordings are instantly upgraded to the defacto standard for Hollywood, Indie & Broadcasters (ProRes and DNxHR), ensuring you're not technically rejected in Post and letting you see the detail of your camera's Log on set with natural colors on the calibrated 7" AtomHDR High Bright monitor.


Affordable, reliable media

Atomos support affordable, readily available 2.5" computer storage SSD's from the world's most trusted media brands;

The combination of high capacity media with recording direct from the sensor means that the conventional 30min barrier imposed by many cameras can be bypassed.


Record professional 4K & HD

The Ninja Flame records higher resolution 10-bit color information, more precise yet efficient 4:2:2 color encoding;

Recording 4K and high frame rate HD within the camera might seem enough but unless you record with the right codec you're restricting flexibility in post and even run the risk of having your footage technically rejected. Along with the high pixel density of 4K, the Ninja Flame records higher resolution 10-bit color information, more precise yet efficient 4:2:2 color encoding and to visually lossless, edit-ready codecs like Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR.

Now you're recording professionally, capturing full individual frames just like film and opening up more creativity in post and grading. Additionally, bypassing internal recording also bypasses the 30min recording barrier found on many DSLR cameras.


Simple OS, Sophisticated shots

The Flame Series is packed with an extensive suite of scopes, all 1-touch away and simple to use. The Video OS includes tools for focus, framing & exposure (Focus peaking, 2:1/1:1 zoom, Zebra, False Color, Safe Area, luma/RGB parade, vectorscope) along with a flexible 3D LUT implementation (use built-in LUTs or upload .cube files) and options for de-squeezing anamorphic content.


Continuos power is back, with super fast charging

Atomos' patented continuous power system pioneered on our HD products are back on the 4K range. The hot swappable dual battery system that automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low, coupled with the blazingly fast battery charger and dual 4-cell batteries (both included with the product) means that continuous power in the field is all but assured.


Advanced DSLR Audio Monitoring

Record audio as well as video externally on the Ninja Flame. Monitor up to 8ch of HDMI audio or 2ch analog line in on the dedicated audio meters, all locked frame accurate with adjustment for frame delay, gain adjustment and Mic level adjustment when using external microphones (3.5mm unbalanced input).


Advanced recording capability

Outside of 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes/DNx, the Ninja Flame adds recording functionality not found in other recorders. Trigger start/stop recording over HDMI from select Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon cameras. Convert interlace video from your camera to progressive on the fly with built-in 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown and gain advanced functionality like Pre-roll (continuous cache recording to never miss the action) and Time lapse to maximise your creativity.
