Bypass the highly compressed internal MPEG / h.264 compression from the camera increasing color accuracy (with 4:2:2 color sampling) and color resolution with 10-bit color (1 Billion Colors). The edit ready 4K / HD Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR video files created by Ninja Assassin are visually lossless with each frame being captured in full resolution (I frame recording) just like film.


Instantly review recorded content on screen or out to a larger monitor. 4K recordings can be downscaled to allow connection to HD monitors and you can even create a playlist of favorite clips for simplified client review


The class leading 7" SuperAtom IPS calibrated monitor provides a range of easy to use professional monitoring tools on a high resolution (1920 x 1080) high pixel density (325ppi) screen to ensure perfect shot setup every time


Make editing decisions on the fly and in review with a choice of 10 tags. You can start to mark clips while you record and then review, cut and tag in playback mode. Marked in and out points are carried right through to edit in your favorite NLE. Simply dock and drop to your Mac or PC and start editing immediately in Apple, AVID, Adobe and other NLE's
