The Ninja Flame basically lives on our Movi M5 as it is a little lighter than the Shogun Flame but still retains the features we have come so accustomed to. We are able to see exactly what we are shooting and with the ability to flip the image able to move the monitor any which way and still see the shot we want. Focus assist is a feature that is never disabled. It is an absolute life saver and the best part is the ability to change the color of the focus peaking. Usually we have the focus peaking on red but when we were shooting the red car for the launch video red blended in with the car so we switched it to Blue so it stood out a bit more.
The focus peaking feels extremely refined and always does an outstanding job showing clearly what’s in focus and what’s not. This is essential when shooting gimbal as we can’t have a lens that is set to infinite focus and trust that everything is in focus. Paired with the focus assist we also are able to use the 2:1 feature to make sure the focus is in fact set perfectly. Wave form is another feature that we utilize as it is very accurate, highly detailed and ensures that we are getting perfect exposure. This is especially important on the gimbal as the shot is very wide and we need to retain full dynamic range. When we heard about the new AtomHDR feature we had no idea how much detail you would be able to see until we shot with it ourselves. It was truly amazing to view how much detail we could pull back in the shadows and highlights before we had even played with the image in post.
