We thank our sponsor B&H who has made cinema5D’s news coverage of IBC 2012 possible. Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com Atomos had something else nice to show us. We really like how this company reacts to market needs and listens to the customers. The Ronin is just what I would’ve needed on my shoot with the Alexa two weeks ago ;) Description from the website: The Ronin portable Recorder/Player/Monitor is a smart solution for both fixed-facility and on-location video production. Based on the award-winning Samurai field recorder, the Ronin features touchscreen ease of use, capture to Apple ProRes® or Avid DNxHD◊, professional monitoring and edit review. Like the Samurai, it can operate on location with battery or DC power, but it can be used in a fixed facility, rack-mounted environment using AC power.

We thank our sponsor B&H who has made cinema5D’s news coverage of IBC 2012 possible. Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com Jeromy Young and his disk recorders have been featured on cinema5D many times. That is not only because his products are targeted at people who want to get the best out of their cameras for the least amount of dinero, but also because Atomos has a vision and follows it obsessively. They keep close relations with all camera manufacturers and make sure their gear integrates with it in a simple yet effective way. In this interview Jeromy explains in detail why it’s nice to work with a disk recorder like the Ninja 2. It is confirmed that the C100 outputs a 4:2:2 signal through the hdmi port which the Ninja can record via a start-stop trigger signal and save to your editing ready ProRes 422 codec. If you go that route you basically end up with a file that has better compression than a Canon C300, if that is what’s important for you. The Ninja 2 is available for $995: The Canon EOS C100 has just been made available for pre-order. The pricetag says $6499:Read more

We thank our sponsor B&H who has made cinema5D’s news coverage of NAB 2012 possible. Get your gear through B&H to support this platform: www.bhphotovideo.com What gear was used to record this video? Take a guess in the comments, we’ll reveal later. The reason we like Atomos harddisk recorders is that they are affordable and easy to use. We’ve seen the Ninja at IBC 2011 and reviewed its counterpart the Samurai (link to review) that sports SDI connectivity. At NAB 2012 ceo Jermoy Young presented their Ninja 2 device, a hardware upgraded version of the existing Ninja model that adds hdmi out and an improved screen. The old Ninja’s screen didn’t perform very well outdoors because it wasn’t very bright and lacked resolution (480×270). The new Ninja 2 has a 800×480 display with improved brightness and a viewing angle of 170°. It should start shipping shortly and costs $995 like its predecessor:Read more
