The Atomos Ninja V 5" 4K HDMI Recording Monitor is a 5" on-camera monitor/recorder that records and plays back DCI 4K, UHD 4K, and HD video from purpose-built mini-SSDs. It features a 10-bit FRC IPS screen with a brightness of 1000 cd/m², which makes it suitable for use in both exterior and interior conditions. The AtomHDR display technology allows you to accurately monitor your log gamma footage without having to view flat, washed-out looking images or use a LUT to compress the dynamic range and color space. The monitor supports popular log formats from Sony, Canon, Panasonic, ARRI, RED, and JVC cameras. The settings only affect viewing, with recorded video remaining unaltered.
Built to withstand the rigors of production, the Ninja V features an aluminum chassis and powers from a single L-series battery. Additional features include a variety of onscreen exposure analysis, framing, and focus assist tools, as well as anamorphic de-squeeze. A power supply and SSD Caddy are included with the unit.
With AtomHDR you can monitor up to ten stops of dynamic range of your camera's LOG image. Most conventional monitors can only display six or seven stops, which is fine for standard footage; but a Log image will look overly flat. It is also superior to monitoring with a loaded LUT, which can clip the highlights and mask shadows.

4K 60p Capabilities
Record high-resolution 4K footage in DCI or UHD formats up to 60 fps, including 24 and 25 fps for a more film-P2like aesthetic. All recordings are stored as high-quality Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR files with 10-bit 4:2:2 chroma subsampling. A variety of bit rates are available to fit your project and storage needs.
Audio can be input and output via the multi-pin locking connector. Separately available breakout cables can provide XLR audio input with 48V phantom power and output. A 3.5mm headphone jack on the side can be used for convenient audio monitoring.
5" Daylight Viewable Screen
The Ninja V features a 5" IPS LCD screen that is illuminated by a bright 1000 cd/m² LED backlight, making it possible to view in daylight without requiring a hood. Plus, the screen is also color calibrated from the factory to ensure accurate image representation.
HDR Signal Management
Log and HDR signals can be difficult to monitor with conventional equipment. Though, with the Ninja V's built-in HDR signal management functions, the log signal can be converted to the PQ standard for compatibility with existing consumer and professional HDR equipment.
The Ninja V supports Anamorphic de-squeeze, allowing you to comfortably view anamorphic footage with a squeeze of 2x, 1.5x, 1.33, and Panasonic's 8:3.
Incoming video signals can be recorded in a wide range of Apple ProRes and Avid DNx codecs which maintain high quality while not requiring the storage space of uncompressed video. Both ProRes and DNx are edit-friendly, requiring no conversion in post-production to ensure smooth playback and compatibility with most common video editing software.
The Ninja V features a bidirectional high-speed video port along with power and audio which allows future expansion modules to increase the Ninja V's capabilities.
The 2TB Sony AtomX SSDmini is designed specifically for the Atomos Ninja V recorder, but it works with most Atomos recorders (some recorders require an optional adapter). It supports sequential write speeds up to 500 MB/s and sequential read speeds up to 550 MB/s. The high write speed enables it to capture high-quality 4K footage in any of Atomos' codecs without dropping frames. and the read speed makes for fast offloading of material and smooth playback with no dropped frames.
The housing of the SSDmini is 20% shorter than conventional SSDs as per the Atomos design, allowing it to work seamlessly with Ninja V recording monitors. The solid-state design of this SSD can provide up to 1500 G/0.5 ms of shock resistance.
