Atomos Ninja Ultra 5.2-inch, 1000nit HDR Monitor-Recorder for Mirrorless and Cinematic Cameras

Ninja Ultra is a leap forward in filmmaking technology. You get all of Ninja's monitoring/recording tools and capabilities, but in conjunction with the Atomos Connect, it opens up a host of ultra-efficient cloud workflows, including dual record ProRes RAW/H.265 for Camera to Cloud, automated matching filenames with cinematic cameras and 4K H.265 for instant publishing from the cloud. Atomos’ close partnerships with major camera manufacturers ensure that Ninja works flawlessly with an increasing range of DSLR, mirrorless, and cinematic cameras.

Capture your vision with the Ninja Ultra

Ninja Ultra brings your creativity to life in every project, from cinematic to social media, HDR, and SDR. It pairs flawlessly with a huge range of HDMI-equipped cameras, from professional cinema to mirrorless. 

Record with the ultimate monitor-recorder

Ninja Ultra is the ultimate field monitor for on-the-go film and video creators who value high-quality industry-standard codecs like ProRes and ProRes RAW. The Ninja’s state-of-the-art screen maintains clarity and color in the brightest conditions and displays bright, clear HDR images for on-set or on-location monitoring

Compact monitor-recorder made perfect

The Atomos Ninja Ultra features a stunningly bright 5.2-inch 10-bit HDR monitor with 1000nits brightness. Sleek and durable, the aluminum body weighs just 360g and is only 25mm deep for easy mounting on any rig.

New AtomOS, New Look, New Possibilities 

Introducing a new version of our operating system, AtomOS 11. Built uniquely for the new Ninja Ultra, it not only looks amazing but introduces a host of great new features. 

We’ve made the tools more visible and improved the look of the icons so you know exactly what you’re selecting. It’s easier to use, more logical, and feels more professional.  

Endless features with OS11

The Ninja Ultra offers a huge range of features that can enhance your workflow, including AtomOS Monitor Assist features like Focus Peaking, Zoom, Vectorscopes & Atomos and ARRI False Color, EL Zone colorized exposure through to Safe Areas, Cine Guides, and our AtomHDR processing engine that allows real-time Log>PQ/HLG previewing and more.

Unlock the full potential of your camera with Ninja Ultra

Ninja Ultra’s wide range of codecs makes it compatible with all major editing software packages. Virtually any HDMI or SDI source is supported, including cameras from Nikon, FujiFilm, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, Z-Cam, Sigma, Olympus, RED, and ARRI.

Ninja Ultra & up to 8K ProRes RAW

Over 55 cameras which now support RAW recording over HDMI on the Ninja and this list is still growing. Apple ProRes RAW combines the visual and workflow benefits of RAW video with the incredible real-time performance of ProRes. It gives filmmakers enormous latitude to adjust the look of their images, making it ideal for HDR workflows. The new Apple ProRes RAW plug-in adds camera-specific characteristics to the mix. 

Ninja Ultra & Atomos Connect module

Add an Atomos Connect module to the Ninja Ultra to access to cloud workflows like C2C, Atomos Edit, and Atomos RemoteView via Atomos Cloud Studio. Connect also features 12G-SDI, AirGlu wireless timecode and control, Wi-Fi 6E, and GigE Ethernet 

Access to Atomos RemoteView with a subscription to Atomos Cloud Services, using Atomos Credits for a simple 'pay as you go service'. Atomos RemoteView is a unique new service that lets you share what’s on your Atomos screen with other Atomos users, as well as with iPads, Macs, and Apple TVs wirelessly. You can monitor what’s happening on-set and look through the camera taking the shot. What’s more, you can do this remotely from anywhere in the world. It’s a new degree of creative freedom for filmmakers.

NDI is a way to send video over ordinary networks (including Wi-Fi and Mobile) in high quality but with remarkably low bandwidth requirements. It’s increasingly used in live production, and now your Ninja Ultra can take part in an NDI network. The NDI 4K TX option turns your Connect-enabled Ninja Ultra into an NDI 4K source, visible to all other NDI-compatible devices on the local network.

4K 60p ProRes RAW and HD 60p H.265 Dual Record Codecs with Atomos Connect

Now you can record your primary file at up to 4Kp60 in ProRes RAW. Parallel recording with RAW and H.265 has always been a major request from users, especially for scripted work and dailies. Now you can record up to 4K 60p ProRes RAW to the SSD in the Ninja Ultra while simultaneously recording and uploading HDp60 H.265 files to Camera to Cloud. It’s the best of both worlds.

New 4K C2C mode lets you upload H.265 files up to 4Kp60 with an attached Atomos Connect

With the new 4K C2C mode you can record and upload much higher resolution and frame rate clips to C2C than ever before. Save crucial time by uploading high-quality 4Kp60 H.265 files up to 30mbps (ACS subscription tier dependent) to C2C as your primary working file. Think sports or events to get HQ content edited and published as fast as possible. No longer do you have to wait for a near-instantaneous 4K C2C edit. Using Atomos Progressive Upload technology ensures no time is wasted

Atomos SDICine with Atomos Connect

Automated matching filenames, timecode, and record triggers from ARRI, Canon, RED, and Sony SDI cameras.

Previously, Camera to Cloud relied on matching filenames with hero and proxy files made by AtomOS. Now, thanks to cooperation with ARRI, Canon, RED, and Sony, Atomos Camera to Cloud files are matched back to the original in-camera (OCF) filenames, enabling a seamless process when conforming C2C or SSD proxy files in the edit with camera files.
