Nauticam Atomos Ninja V-S
Introducing Nauticam Atomos Ninja V-S
The Atomos Ninja V and Ninja V+
The Atomos Ninja V is an exceptional monitor, featuring a bright 1000 nit 10-bit HDR 5.2" screen that can display over 10 stops of dynamic range with compatible cameras. The monitor includes a variety of exposure and focus assist tools to insure your footage is properly exposed with critical focus. In addition to being an extremely capable monitor, the Ninja V is also a recorder. When used with compatible cameras over HDMI 2.0, the Ninja V can record 4K at 60p in 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes or DNxHR formats to Atomos AtomX SSDmini solid state drives. The Ninja V+ will allow for up to 4K 120p and 8K 30p ProRes RAW recording. With a 1TB SSDmini drive, the Ninja V can record up to 150 minutes of 4K video.
The Ninja V exposure guides include a Waveform for luminance, RGB Parade for color balance, and Vector Scope for hue and saturation. These tools, especially useful for the underwater filmmaker, allow accurate and fast judging of exposure, even in the most uncooperative lighting scenarios. Even when recording Log or HDR footage, using Rec.709 or HLG monitoring displays the video on the screen adjusted to the levels of the chosen standard.
Critical focus can be achieved using various peaking tools. Focus Peaking Color displays the original color image with the sharpest areas outlined in a selectable color. Focus Peaking Mono provides the same overlay but on a monochrome image. Focus Assist Outline shows only the false color outline on a black background of the sharpest areas.
The Nauticam NA-Ninja V-S Underwater Housing
The Nauticam NA-Ninja V-S builds on the strong foundation Nauticam has built with previous Atomos monitor/recorder housings but is built around the new M28 large-bore bulkhead. The M28 on the 'S' housing supports both HDMI 2.0 and SDI via the AtomX SDI Module. The module allows for an SDI connection to the monitor or for providing HDMI-SDI cross conversion.
The Ninja V is easily mounted in the housing, dropping in without trays or other mounting accessories and is held in place by two rotating locking levers. The Ninja V with the AtomX SDI Module features both HDMI 2.0 and SDI inputs as well as an HDMI or SDI output and the NA-Ninja V-S supports both. With dual M28 bulkheads, a second HDMI or SDI cable can be run to another monitor. The Ninja V allows for the application of. cube format 3D LUTs to this output signal.
Battery and Vacuum System
The NA-Ninja V-S supports up to the NP-F970 size battery which provides up to 130 minutes of run time (105 minutes with SDI module) when recording 4K60p footage. A CR-2032 battery powers the vacuum check and leak detection system. When used with the included Vacuum Valve, the system gives real-time feedback about the watertight integrity of the housing through an easily visible multi-color LED on the top of the housing.
Access to the touchscreen controls of the Ninja V are handled via a series of buttons and a selector knob beneath the screen of the housing including PLAY, REC, MON, RGB, PEAK and the Muti-Selector Lever.
