Atomos has just unveiled their latest addition to their line-up of field recorders. The new Atomos Ninja Inferno features HDR ProRes recording of 10-bit 4:2:2 video in 4K60p and 120p in HD, and is being released to match the availability of its ideal companion, the Panasonic GH5.
This newest member in their line of HDMI field monitors and recorders, the Atomos Ninja Inferno features a 7” 1920×1200 10-bit HDR touch screen LCD with 1500nits of brightness, making it perfect for viewing it under direct day light without the need of a sun hood.
The body is constructed from ABS Polycarbonate, featuring built-in armour protection for added ruggedness. It also has a double NP battery bay as seen in other Atomos recorders, allowing for hot swapping without losing power. The unit also includes a travel case, a caddy for a Solid States Drive and an AC adapter.
In terms of recording capabilities, the Atomos Ninja Inferno offers recordings in the edit-friendly Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR codecs in up to 4K60p (120p in HD) 4:2:2 10-bit. This would make it an ideal option to match the potential of the Panasonic GH5, whose release is matched by this new Atomos product.
Atomos also provides tools and aids in the form of Luma waveform, vector scope, and 1:1 and 2:1 (4K) focus zoom assist. The Atomos Ninja Inferno also features LUT support, and lays claim to being ”the world’s first HDMI monitor-recorder to accept 4K DCI signals”.
Additionally, the new Ninja Inferno offers an XLR input and 48V phantom power for added audio flexibility, as well as a headphone jack to monitor audio. This would also make it an ideal candidate to solve the audio monitoring shortcomings of the Sony a6300/ Sony a6500.
The Atomos Ninja Inferno is already available for pre-order from the links below, with an expected shipping date of March 31st.
