A new full-frame era begins
The Nikon Z6 and Z7 have state-of-the-art sensors that output pristine 4k images over HDMI, ready for conversion to HDR by Atomos. The Atomos Ninja V records the output to production-ready 10-bit Apple ProRes or Avid DNx formats.
Atomos is proud to be the first to support Nikon Log, Apple ProRes recording and HDR monitoring from the Z series cameras. The tiny Ninja V 5-inch device is the perfect partner for these full-frame mirrorless cameras, making the setup ideal for weddings, corporate, news, documentary, nature films or b-roll for Hollywood productions.
First full-frame 4k 10-bit mirrorless recording
Until now, the full-frame mirrorless 4K video has been limited to 8-bit. With the Nikon and Ninja V combination, you can capture more shades of colour for maximum flexibility in postproduction. Get footage like never before, with better-looking skin tones and smooth gradients in skies. This means the combination perfectly meets the specifications for true HDR delivery.
New Nikon N-Log fully supported by Atomos with automated setup
The Z6 and Z7 offer the Nikon N-Log gamma, a brand-new Log gamma designed by Nikon to get the most out of the cameras’ sensors and wide dynamic range. Atomos is the first to resolve N-Log to HDR on their devices and our engineers have developed specific presets for it. Setup is automatic the moment you plug the Ninja V into the cameras thanks to advanced communication between camera and monitor. The Ninja V can show a massive 10+ stops of dynamic range on-screen, to allow users to make accurate exposure and colour decisions. The recorder can receive timecode and be triggered directly from the cameras.
The Ninja V advantage
The Ninja V has a sleek 1” thick aluminium body, crafted for maximum durability, and weighs only 283g. The high brightness 1000nit display allows it to be viewed in daylight and used to display HDR images. The screen is colour accurate and can be calibrated to maintain its accuracy over time. The Ninja V records onto industry standard SATA SSD drives, including the new AtomX SSD Mini series of smaller form factor drives. As a result, these drives are more affordable than proprietary media. Footage recorded onto the Ninja V can be instantly played back in REC.709 or HDR on the device itself, or to a TV. Metadata is embedded into the HDMI output to allow correct display of HDR on compatible monitors and televisions. The Ninja V touchscreen recording monitor has a modular expansion slot to allow future upgrades to its feature set.
