The next level
The Ninja V+ Pro Kit has been designed to bridge the gap between compact cinema and mirrorless cameras that can output RAW via HDMI or SDI. With all the power of the Ninja V+ for 8Kp30, the Pro Kit adds 4Kp120 and 2Kp240 continuous recording via SDI. The Ninja V+ takes advantage of new Atomos Silicon AtomIC3, AtomOS 10 and the incredible efficiency of ProRes RAW to deliver these increased resolutions and frame rates. The new formats also integrate seamlessly into the timeline of your existing ProRes RAW or ProRes projects, without huge storage or processing overheads.
Ninja V+ Pro Kit and 4Kp120
The Ninja V+ Pro Kit comes packed with camera accessories and enables 4Kp120 ProRes RAW recording mode from the SDI RAW output of the Sony, FX9* and FX6. Both Atomos and Sony users will now be able to experience the benefits of working with images at a high frame rate and resolutions, whilst recording in pristine ProRes RAW.
*The FX9 requires the XDCA-FX9 Extension unit
Combined with the AtomX SDI module and some serious tuning under the hood, the Pro Kit provides the ability to record RAW over SDI from some of the best compact cinema cameras on the market. No RAW, no problem. The Ninja V+ monitor-recorder is a flexible tool that can work as a HDMI/SDI ProRes monitor-recorder.
Worry less when it comes to battery management and excess weight as the Pro Kit is designed to be powered via DTap from your camera battery or rig, and can also use a battery eliminator for studio power. Pro Kit also includes a AtomX 5” Sunhood providing increased monitoring options outdoors and reduced ambient light for when monitoring in HDR.
Powerful & versatile I/O
Adding dual 12G SDI connectivity expands the compatibility with other cameras to provide off board 10-bit 422 recording in edit ready codecs or as proxy files from RED or ARRI cameras allowing the file naming and timecode to also be applied to the recorded files. And of course, the Ninja V+ also provides support for RAW over HDMI from our ever-growing roster of mirrorless cameras including the Sony Alpha 7S III, Z CAM E2 Series, Nikon Z Series, LUMIX S Series, Olympus OM-D EM-1X, Olympus OM-D M1 MkIII and more.
The Flexibility to Suit any Production
In playback mode the Ninja V+ Pro Kit provides a lossless signal distribution with 2 x 12G SDI and 1 x HDMI 2.0 for simultaneous outputs up to 4K p60. When used in combination with the Ninja’s playlist functionality it provides a fast and convenient way to review content or show a highlight reel. RAW inputs can also be de-bayered in real time and non-standard high resolutions are processed to SMPTE standard output formats. Convert to HLG, PQ or your choice of 3D LUT can also be applied allowing for RAW or LOG content to be viewed with the correct application of artistic intent.
HDMI-to-SDI cross conversion
Adding the SDI module to the Ninja V+ Platform more than doubles it’s I/O functionality. To complement the inputs, HDMI or SDI connections can be cross converted, DCI cropped and 4k to HD down converts for video signals to provide a bridge between equipment such as EVFs, wireless TX/RX without the need for additional convertors.
The ProRes RAW Advantage
ProRes RAW is now firmly established as the new standard for RAW video capture, with an ever-growing number of supported HDMI and SDI cameras. ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes.
The format gives filmmakers enormous latitude when adjusting the look of their images and extending brightness and shadow detail, making it ideal for HDR workflows. Both ProRes RAW, and the higher bandwidth, less compressed ProRes RAW HQ are supported.
Manageable file sizes speed up and simplify file transfer, media management, and archiving. ProRes RAW is fully supported in Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer 2020.10 update, along with a collection of other apps including ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, Colorfront, FilmLight Baselight and Grass Valley Edius.
The Pro Kit offers 3 ways
to power your Ninja V+
• In the Studio you can use the included DC power supply with lockable jack to connect to the Ninja V+ and with the international power plugs you’ll be covered wherever your work might take you.
• On-set via the included DTap cable to connect to your choice of battery with a DTap output meaning your camera rig can run from a single power source.
• On the move with a compact rig you also have the choice to run the Ninja directly from an optional NPF battery or any 4 cell NPF you might have in your kit bag.

Ready For The Future
The Ninja V+ and Canon R5 deliver a compact and configurable 8K RAW and HDR camera system that is very affordable when compared with other 8K setups. The possibilities you have when shooting in 8K are a true game changer, as Canon and Atomos have just democratized 8K for the masses with no compromise in quality.
More Power. Less Weight.
Pairing the Ninja V+ with the Canon R5 gives you a powerful yet compact 8K camera package that fits in your hands and can be flexibly built out to suit your needs. It can become the basis of a compact cinema rig or be flown on gimbals and stabilizers.
It’s also easy to create an incredibly lightweight setup, as the Canon R5 with a 24mm Cine lens, Ninja V+, NPF battery and media comes in under 3KG/7lb, which can be easily carried by a wide range of aerial drones, as well as vehicles and robot arms.
Extra Resolution Gives You Creative Flexibility
With the broad canvas of 8K resolution, your options for creative crops into a region of interest allow you to extract multiple 4K shots from a single camera angle. This allows you to create additional shots for cutaways to break up the edit, that are much higher resolution than if the shots were extracted from a single 4K source.
Stabilize Without Compromise
The incredible resolution of 8K video means that even after cropping into the image as part of the stabilization process, the final shot will likely still have a resolution of 4K or even 6K. This means that it can integrate with your other 8K footage on the timeline, and still look great.
Razor Sharp Screenshots
High resolution screenshots from 8K full frame cameras also offer the ability to create scene plates for small scale virtual production stages or use in other content platforms.
See The Unseen
The Ninja V+ allows you to capture content at up to 4Kp120 in pristine ProRes RAW for high frame rate video that has exceptional image quality. This is a great alternative to using the internal compressed codecs on your camera for high frame rate recording, as they can apply higher levels of colour compression and subsampling, leading to potential artifacts or limitation in the edit/grade.
Z CAM E2 / E2-M4 Series Cameras
Capture and visualize the unseen with 4Kp120 recording at up to ProRes RAW from the Ninja V+ Z CAM E2 /E2-M4 models, with more models to follow. Fully harness the dynamic range of the sensor, capture every aspect of motion and movement directly via RAW over HDMI. Add to this the benefit of being able to play back the high frame rate video captured on the Ninja V+ at various play back speeds to preview the adjustments you can make on your NLE timeline.
An Incredible Codec Arsenal
