Atomos have been pioneering the affordable 10bit recorders for quite some time, and over the past 5-6 years they’ve given us some truly amazing kit. From the original Ninja, to the Ninja 2 and Samurai, then the Blade series through the original Shogun, now in 2016 with 4K Raw and HDR monitoring in the Shogun Inferno, the Atomos recorders turn the shoddy 8bit 4:2:0 internal video signal out of DSLR’s, mirrorless cameras or camcorders with a clean HDMI/SDI feed, into a broadcast ready 10bit ProRes or DNxHD codecs elevating your workflow to professional standards. I have owned the Ninja 2 and then the Ninja Blade for my original Canon C100, and they worked like a charm.
For those shooting 4K these days, and wanting to upgrade to HDR, Atomos are running some really sweet Cashback and Trade-in deals, which you can read about it here in case you missed our original post on the Atomos Cashback deals from earlier in the week.
