Here’s another enjoyable video with Atomos CEO Jeromy Young. After the more affordable and already available Atomos Ninja hdmi recorder has proven to be a top notch useful device, the not yet released Samurai will now make some of us even more happy as they have added the Avid DNxHD codec.
The Samurai is a recorder that stores video from an HD-SDI source to a harddisk of your choice, making high quality video recording from a camera like for example a Sony F3 much more affordable.
Some of the Samurai’s features are:
– 800×480 resolution screen with focus and exposure assist
– 24 PSF support with 24/60i 3:2 pulldown removal on capture
– SDI Play Out or Loop-though
– Instant playback for review on a connected screen
– Atomos continuous power, dual battery system
– affordable 2.5″ HDD/SSD storage capability
The Samurai will be 1145€ ($1595) and is available for worldwide preorder here:
