Atomos Announces Ninja-2 DSLR Support

Atomos, creators of field recorders the Ninja-2 and Samurai, and the Connect converters have announced Ninja-2 support for many new DSLR cameras at NAB.
"Our close relationships with major camera manufacturers means that at NAB this year we have over 20 different cameras on our booth working with our field recorders," said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos.
"Of these, over half are DSLRs with 'clean' HDMI video output. This time last year there was only one. This is a great illustration of just how DSLRs and affordable large sensor video cameras are changing the world of professional video."
Atomos is showcasing a pre-release version of the Canon 5D MkIII working with the Ninja-2.
"With this new firmware update from Canon, we have a clean HDMI feed, and a co-developed start/stop trigger and timecode over HDMI essential professional tools. This combination is an absolute game-changer, which we've responded to by changing the price of the Ninja-2 to $695, making it more affordable for the whole filmmaking community," added Young.
Atomos has now shipped 10,000 field recorders worldwide.
The Ninja-2 allows the recording, monitoring and playback of 10-bit 4:2:2 images straight from the camera sensor directly to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD editing codecs.
Atomos makes production truly affordable by using commodity, off-the-shelf 2.5" computer HDD or SSD drives.
The Ninja-2 has been repackaged to appeal to DSLR users. The main recording unit remains unchanged, but the box includes a redesigned docking station, battery, AC mains adaptor, a single battery charger and shims for Canon and Nikon batteries. The Ninja-2 is available for just $695, excluding sales tax.
