Atomos’s latest monitor recorder is the Ninja V, a scaled down member of the Ninja line for mirrorless cameras, DSLRs and gaming with a 5.2" display that weighs just over 11oz (320g).

The 5.2 inch screen has 1000nits of output coupled with an anti-reflection finish. The unit comes with monitoring tools including histogram, false colour, peaking, movable 1-1 and 2-1 pixel magnification, waveform, RGB parade, Vector scope and 8ch audio level meters.

It can record up to 4Kp60 10-bit video over HDMI 2.0 in Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR direct to new smaller SSD drives. The AtomHDR engine delivers 10+ stops of dynamic range to the LCD in real time from Log/ PQ/HLG camera signals. Playout Log as PQ or HLG to a larger HDR-compatible screen.

The unit uses just one battery but with a plate that keeps power going for five minutes while a fresh battery is slotted in.  There’s a new modular expansion slot that allows connectivity for high speed video, audio and power. Expansion modules can dock onto the battery slot of the unit and offer features such as continuous power modules. Atomos and third party accessories should be available to be used with the slot in the future.

The Ninja V will sell for $695 but there’s no official release date as yet.
