Rental ID: ATOMOS_NINJA_2_HDMI_RECORDER_HIRE
The Atomos Ninja 2 recorder is an impressive little unit. It captures footage via HDMI, so you can hook the Ninja 2 up to any camera that has an HDMI output. It doubles as a great monitor too, it has an 800 x 480 resolution screen with peaking and exposure tools built-in.
It captures 10-bit 4:2:2 at 1080/25p/50i using Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs, which is very impressive! It is great for getting ProRes proxies on the spot as well.
It captures TC timecode via HDMI if the camera supports it; the Canon 5D MK3 and Canon C100 support TC over HDMI. Hit record on the camera and the Ninja 2 automatically starts recording (timecode over HDMI supported cameras only).
It records to SSD drives (2 x 500GB supplied) and 2.5″ HDD’s (via a caddy).
The Ninja 2 is fully operated via a great touch screen menu system.
