Use the Atomos Ninja V to enhance your filmmaking

Atomos is a well-known name in the world of filmmaking – and for good reason. Their range of monitors enable videographers to capture professional-quality video from consumer DSLR and mirrorless cameras. Global Distribution dropped by The Photography Show's Burst Mode studio to show us how the Atomos Ninja V  can be an essential part of your filmmaking kit.

The Atomos Ninja V is a 5" on-camera monitor recorder that can record the uncompressed image from the sensor before the camera compresses the footage. It's able to record and play back DCI 4K, UHD 4K and HD video from purpose-built mini-SSDs.

The Ninja V also features a 10-bit FRC IPS screen with a brightness of 1,000 cd/m². This means it's perfect for use in bother exterior and interior conditions. It features a color accurate display that's easy to calibrate. You can also access features such as waveforms, translucency and brightness, focus peaking and frame guides to get as much out of the monitor recorder as possible.

Recently, Atomos and Nikon worked together to ensure that the Nikon Z6 and Z7 could record ProRes RAW video footage with the Atomos Ninja V. However, Panasonic will also be joining the RAW video party at some point in the future.

While you might not be able to capture RAW video with other camera manufacturers, you can still use the Atomos Ninja V with brands including Sony, Canon, Fujifilm and Olympus for more flexibility with your filmmaking.

For more information you can either watch the video above or check out the Global Distribution website.
