Spinning drives (HDD) will generally stand light/medium occasional bumps without any problems, all Atomos recorders have an anti-shock buffer. However, spinning drives are not recommended for use in high vibration or moving environments.

Recording media compatibility

Most drives mentioned in the search results are standard SATA SSD drives. Before use, insert them into our Master Caddy II for a secure fit across all of our monitor recorders. For any of the CFast 2.0 cards on the list, using the additional AtomX CFast Adapter is required.


General hints 
for drive compatibility

  • There’s a wide variety of 2.5-inch SSD drives available. While many claim impressive read and write speeds, please be aware that these are based on the drive’s random access performance.For video and RAW recording, only the sustained write speed is important.
  • The AtomX SSDmini is designed to fit the form factor of the Ninja and Neon. By installing the optional SSDmini handle, it extends to the form factor of the Master Caddy II.
  • CFast 1 cards can be used with the AtomX CFast Adapter to load LUTs or install firmware updates, but they are not suitable for recording.
  • 2.5-inch HDDs that were previously used with our legacy products might still be compatible from a form factor perspective, but they’re not suitable for external recording beyond 1080p30.
