The on-camera ATOMOS Ninja2 800x480 monitor and field recorder can add professional recording features to your DSLR camera. It can capture directly from your camera’s sensor to your choice of Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD codecs. Use the touchscreen to access the ATOMOS Ninja 2 user interface. This field recorder includes audio input level meters, a headphone line out, 4 channels of audio, ProRes or Avid codecs, Timecode, and continuous power.

An easy-to-use user interface lets you choose between functions: Record, Play, Monitor, Menu. The touchscreen is responsive to fast commands such as one-touch recording or one-touch review.

Pair the ATOMOS Ninja2 Recorder with an HDMI camera to record 10-bit 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD at up to 220MBps. You can name your Ninja 2 by camera or project so your recorded files are named appropriately for later reference. 

NOTE: You can achieve start/stop triggering with the ATOMOS Ninja 2 when you pair it with a Sony or Canon camera.

Timecode functionality includes several choices you can customize. Choose from On Board, Time of Day, Record Run, or Auto Restart timecodes modes. You can also passthrough timecode from your camera or other timecode source.

Utilize SmartLog to tag your footage or clips with keyword descriptors like ‘good audio’ or ‘best shot’ or other reminders to smooth your editing workflow. It isn’t necessary to do this on set. Review the footage later and add in your keywords when you have time instead of on-the-fly.
