ATOMOS COMPATIBILITY WITH HDMI CAMCORDERS & DSLRS
Most camcorders with an HDMI output will work with the Ninja-2 (and the original Ninja). DSLRs are a little different however, as it is only comparatively recently that they have output what we call a ‘clean’ HDMI video signal, without the viewfinder information embedded in it. The good news is that more and more DSLRs coming on to the market have this feature.
ATOMOS COMPATIBILITY WITH HD-SDI CAMCORDERS
Samurai & Ronin recorders will work with most professional camera ranges with HD-SDI and SD-SDI connectivity including:
ARRI, CANON, JVC, PANASONIC, RED AND SONY
NOTE: some older cameras may not support the trigger function, or SDI embedded audio (the Canon XLH1S for example).
IMPORTANT: If you are looking to start/stop the camera from the Atomos recorder you will need to ensure that the camera supports embedded timecode over HDMI or HD-SDI, or has the embedded flags to use the camera trigger. Currently we support this in certain Sony and Canon cameras. If you are considering buying a Ronin, Samurai or Ninja-2 for use with a specific camera, please speak to your reseller or sales representative. If you have further technical inquiries that you have not been able to get answered on the Atomos web site, Support page, or Knowledge base, you can get online help at: Atomos Support
