Camera Log (S-Log2, S-Log3, C-Log, V-Log etc) delivers maximum sensor detail in your recordings, but on monitors it looks washed out & makes judging exposure difficult. The compromise for filmmakers is to use LUT's to get the approximate "look" but sacrifice detail or use calibration cards, waveform & some “rule of thumb” figures to set exposure correctly. AtomHDR is the solution, accurately displaying HDR Log footage with the brightness to see Log as the eye sees it.
Not all scenes call for HDR Log recording. In situations that don't call for 10 stops of dynamic range, use the intensity of the 1500nit panel to monitor traditional standard dynamic range (SDR/Rec709) video at high brightness for outdoor monitoring..
Simply pick the right mode, HDR or High Bright SDR, and get busy setting up your shot on the premium 7" display boasting 10-bit processing, 1920x1200 resolution, 325ppi pixel density, optional calibration to overcome natural LCD color drift and an arsenal of precision video setup tools for perfect shots every time.
The perfect partner for DSLR and Mirrorless cameras with Log output over HDMI. From gimbal operators to Corporate to Indy filmmakers, your recordings are instantly upgraded to the defacto standard for Hollywood, Indie & Broadcasters (ProRes and DNxHR), ensuring you're not technically rejected in Post and letting you see the detail of your camera's Log on set with natural colors on the calibrated 7" AtomHDR High Bright monitor.
The combination of high capacity media with recording direct from the sensor means that the conventional 30min barrier imposed by many cameras can be bypassed..
Recording 4K and high frame rate HD within the camera might seem enough but unless you record with the right codec you're restricting flexibility in post and even run the risk of having your footage technically rejected. Along with the high pixel density of 4K, the Ninja Flame records higher resolution 10-bit color information, more precise yet efficient 4:2:2 color encoding and to visually lossless, edit-ready codecs like Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHR.
Now you're recording professionally, capturing full individual frames just like film and opening up more creativity in post and grading. Additionally, bypassing internal recording also bypasses the 30min recording barrier found on many Mirrorless/DSLR cameras
Our flexible OS is packed with an extensive suite of scopes, all 1-touch away and simple to use. The Video OS includes tools for focus, framing & exposure (Focus peaking, 2:1/1:1 zoom, Zebra, False Color, Frame guides, SMPTE Safe Area, Waveform, RGB parade, vectorscope) along with a flexible 3D LUT implementation (use built-in LOG to Rec.709 Video or upload .cube files) and options for anamorphic de-squeeze monitoring.

Our patented continuous power system pioneered on our HD products are back on the 4K range. The hot swappable dual battery system that automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low, coupled with the blazingly fast battery charger and dual 4-cell batteries (optional accessories) means that continuous power in the field is all but assured.
Outside of 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes/DNx, the Ninja Flame adds recording functionality not found in other recorders. Trigger start/stop recording over HDMI from select Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon cameras. Convert interlace video from your camera to progressive on the fly with built-in 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown and gain advanced functionality like Pre-roll (continuous cache recording to never miss the action) and Time lapse to maximise your creativity.
Our built-in armor enhances protection & airflow whilst the raft of accessories (2 x NP series 4-cell batteries, fast battery charger, USB3 docking station, XLR breakout cable, Lanc cable, DC to D-Tap cable, 5 x Master Caddy cases, DC adapter & HDR sun hood) and the premium HPRC flight case ensures you're ready to hit the field immediately.
Cloakroom Media & Flying Dragon Aerial teamed up on a TVC production for Tesla Motors Australia. We were given two production days to complete the filming and put together some cutting edge kit to film from the land and the skies (a pair of Freefly Systems ALTA’s coupled with MoVI M15’s, a Freefly Systems TERO and RED Epic Dragon on both ALTA’s to decrease setup times between each sequence). We were delighted to be invited to test out two pre release products labelled the Atomos Ninja Flame & Shogun Flame.
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.
