AtomOS Firmware 10.01 and Ninja V HDR Monitoring and New Interface Explained

Atomos just released a new 10.01 update for their AtomOS 10 operating system that is at the heart of their latest 5-inch 4K recorder/monitor Ninja V. The latest AtomOS 10.01 for the Atomos Ninja V is now available to download, and it is recommended for all users. AtomOS 10.01 is a remedial update, which does not add new features, but rather fixes some bugs, which is important. You can find details of what is new with AtomOS 10.01 in the paragraphs below.

With the new AtomOS 10 on the Ninja V, Atomos have made some significant changes in the interface and functionality compared to the Sumo19 or Shogun Inferno families for example – especially in the overall look and feel, the placement of buttons, and the way that AtomHDR works.

To help current Ninja V users understand these improvements Atomos put together an excellent video, in which Atomos CEO Jeromy Young walks you through the new user interface and explains the reasons behind the changes, such as reducing the saturation on the touchscreen buttons due to the 5-inch monitor size, and also so they don’t get in the way of you monitoring your image, and many others.

Exposing properly in HDR is not easy, but Jeromy shows you how to get set for good exposures on your Ninja V for your HDR or SDR productions, minimizing the noise in the shadows, while ensuring highlights are not excessively blown out.
