Product description

You also get a Sony-type NP-F570 battery, a charger, an AC adapter for continuous power, and two master caddies for available HDD/SSD It features two 1/4"-20 threaded mounting holed, one each top and bottom.

Uncompressed Recording


The Ninja Blade records directly from from the camera's video output, bypassing in camera compression, allowing the unit to record at 10-bit, 4:2:2 to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD.


AtomOS 5.0 Capacitive Touchscreen OS


Blade's operating system, AtomOS, manages recording, playback, monitoring, and simple cut and tag editing via a capacitive touchscreen. AtomOS 5.0 supports alpha channel, transparency support, full waveform RGB and luma parade, and vectorscope with zoom.


Cut and Tag


AtomOS 5.0 lets you rough cut your footage, tag it as Favorite or Reject, and then save it as a project to be finished and polished in the studio. You can cut and tag short and long clips with transport controls and finite frame-by-frame accurate stepping.


Synced REC Trigger and Timecode


The Blade provides frame accurate timecode and start stop triggers over HDMI from many cameras, including Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, JVC, RED and ARRI. It also features LANC and rolling timecode trigger for those older cameras that don't have start stop flag protocols on board. The Blade additionally has tally lights to indicate start time.


ProRes and DNxHD Encoding & Playback


The unit encodes in your choice of Apple's ProRes and Avid's DNxHD codec and can also play back any ProRes or DNxHD file from any system, recorder or edit suite. You can take advantage of this playback capacity to take rushes on the road.


HDD or SSD Storage


It records to available 2.5" HDDs or SSDs, which are hot swappable. As SSDs are resistant to vibration they are ideal for shoots in rough conditions, such as on a race track.


File Recovery


In case you accidentally pull the power or remove the storage drive while recording, the operating system will detect the disruption and will reconstruct your file to within 2 frames.


Audio Monitoring


All audio, even analog, is locked frame accurately to every video frame, never drifting or losing sync. If digital audio is out of sync from the camera, you can even adjust sync on the fly by advancing or delaying incoming audio. The Ninja Blade monitors/records 2 channels of audio embedded in the HDMI signal, and 2 analog audio channels.




The Blade is built with aircraft grade aluminum and features locking mechanisms for each removable part.


Low Power Consumption


Blade consumes only 6W of power and can be powered by the included Sony NP Type battery. The unit features two locking battery slots, and comes with a Nikon EN-EL15 type battery adapter plate, and an LP-E6 type battery adapter plate, allowing you to use batteries other than the Sony NP type to power the unit.
