Introducing the Ninja Blade

The new Ninja Blade offers a stunning 1280x720 5” SuperAtom IPS touchscreen, at 325ppi 179° viewing, 400nit brightness and multi-frequency operation, you can expect crisp, super smooth monitoring and playback.

The capacitive touch panel gives lightning-quick response times and gesture capability. Controlling AtomOS 5.1 on Ninja Blade is silky smooth.

The Ninja Blade is the world’s most advanced smart production recorder, monitor and playback deck. Every part of its physical and operational design has been carefully crafted to deliver the ultimate in simple operation and mission critical reliability. The Blade combines multiple devices – external monitor, capture card, playback deck and cut edit suite – into a single affordable tool. It’s lightweight, tough and robust for operation in the field.


10-Bit 4:2:2 Quality For The Masses

Your affordable DSLR or camcorder is ripping the life out of your sensor with MPEG 420 8-bit recording. Increase the quality of any camera to professional edit friendly codecs – the files are large and the result amazing, only Atomos deliver the ultimate in quality recording to the masses. So why record 10-bit from the sensor of a camera, if it's 8-bit? Well, if you want to edit, use CG or 3D effects, green screen or add titles and transitions, these will all be crushed to 8 bit. We bypass the 8-bit and record 10-bit colour registries to ensure your video plays nicely with all computer effects.


Powerful Monitor and Test Suite

Packed into the light and mobile camera-mountable Ninja Blade are all the essential tools you need to set up on-site accurate colors and exposure including full waveform monitor functions - Vectorscope, RGB and LUMA parades. Each provides an intuitive transparent interface offering full screen, lower 3rd or bottom right corner positioning to give you a range of options when setting up, recording and playing back your shot.



The OS used on Atomos products is lightning-fast, simple to operate and robust. It encompasses all aspects of video production, from recording, to playback and review, monitoring assist and even simple cut and tag editing. New to AtomOS 5 is alpha channel and transparency support, full waveform monitor RGB parade and Luma overlay display, and vectorscope with zoom (AtomOS 5 only available for the Blade series).
