The Full Version of the Atomos Ninja 2 Video Recorder is an HDMI recorder built into an 800 x 480 resolution monitor that records up to 1080/30p/60i resolution directly from your camera's sensor. It records to an optional HDD or SSD in using Apple's ProRes or Avid's DNxHD edit-ready codecs. The Ninja 2 supports 10-bit 4:2:2 color sampling for vivid images superior to most DSLR internal recording capabilities, and you can still record 8-bit video to the Ninja 2. Built-in exposure tools such as false color and zebra bars provide useful aids in exposing your footage, while the built-in focus peaking tool can alert you to out of focus shots may be difficult to see on an on-camera monitor.
The 4.3" touchscreen features a resistive touchscreen that functions using pressure, this allows you to operate the touchscreen with your fingers, even while wearing gloves, which is important when working in the cold. The Ninja 2 incorporates anti-shock technology that allows you to continue to record even if your HDD skips a few frames from being jarred. The Master Caddy system allows you to choose to use optional 2.5" HDDs or SSDs with your Ninja 2. SmartLog editing tools allow you to mark selects during playback or recording, and can save you time when you go to edit. It includes two master drive caddies. a docking station that offloads these drives to your computer via USB 3.0/2.0, as well as a Sony-type NP-F570 battery, charger, AC adapter for continuous power, Canon LP-E6-type battery adapter, and a Nikon EN-EL15-type adapter.
