Just to be crystal clear this is not a new Ninja V, it is simply the current Ninja V with the AtomX SDI and a few accessories.

According to Atomos, the Ninja V Pro Kit has been designed to ‘bridge the gap between compact cinema and mirrorless cameras that can output Apple ProRes RAW via HDMI or SDI‘.

As well as being able to record RAW over SDI and HDMI, the Pro Kit also gives uses the ability to cross covert signals. This is very handy for outputting a signal to wireless transmitters or EVFs or even another monitor.

What do you get in the Pro Kit?

The addition of the AtomX SDI Module allows users to record not only traditional ProRes over SDI but also ProRes RAW. This allows you to use the Ninja V with a wide array of cameras.

You will also be able to record RAW from the Sony FX6 over SDI to the Ninja V.

With the FX6, to record RAW over SDI you previously needed to use an Atomos Shogun 7. In my opinion, this monitor was way too big for the camera. I feel sorry for anyone who rushed out and bought a Shogun 7 recently to use it with an FX6.

The Ninja V Pro Kit is also able to record RAW over SDI from other cameras such as the Panasonic EVA-1, Varicam LT, Canon C500, Canon C300 Mark II.

Now, you need to be very aware that RAW outputs from Sony’s FS range (FS700, FS5, FS7) are NOT SUPPORTED on the Ninja V with the AtomX SDI Module and RAW upgrade. Support for these cameras is ONLY available on the Shogun 7.
