"We are extremely proud of the Ninja-2. It is the culmination of all we have learned since releasing the first Ninja. Timecode trigger, higher resolution screen, pro monitoring and editing functions that save time and money are all included. Once you see the HDMI output of your Ninja-2 recordings on a big screen you will never use another device again. Customers all over the world have come to depend on their Atomos field recorders and the second generation Ninja-2 continues that line of pedigree at the same selling price? said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos.
Ninja-2 boasts HDMI output as well as HDMI input, which means it can be used to record directly from the amazing new Nikon DSLR sensor (a feature of their new D4/D800 cameras) and the retina-display Apple iPad, really taking advantage of their stunning HD outputs. The Ninja-2 touchscreen has also been upgraded to an 800x480 pixel display, with a viewing angle of 170 degrees, both horizontally and vertically, with much improved visibility in direct sunlight.
The Ninja-2 ships with the latest AtomOS 3.21 operating system. This includes features such as SmartMonitor, which turns the Ninja-2 into a monitoring solution with Peaking, Zebra, False Color and Blue Only functionality. It also includes SmartLog, a revolutionary feature that allows you to edit using keyword tagging, on-set on location or on the move. AtomOS 3.21 also includes XML support for Final Cut X.
Developed with approval from Apple, the Atomos Ninja-2 allows the recording, monitoring and playback of pristine, 10-bit uncompressed images straight from the sensor of your HDMI-equipped DSLR or camcorder, directly to inexpensive HDD or SSD drives (not supplied), recorded using the high quality Apple ProRes codec.
