The Atomos Ninja Flame overcomes the display challenges of shooting Log, displaying the full brightness range on a field monitor for the first time, with true-to-life vibrant colors. It has a 7” 10-bit 1500nit panel with the AtomHDR engine and HDMI connections to record and playback video to 4K/HD 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR.
Activate AtomHDR to resolve the brightness detail of Log camera signals with the color accuracy of HDR images mastered in post production. This means that the usual complications of exposing Log signals on a washed out image (i.e. LUTs for LOOK management but compromise on detail or complicated calibration card and “rule of thumb” calculations) are eliminated – you simply frame, expose, focus and shoot.
The monitor itself is a calibrated 7” 1920×1200 325ppi panel (just like Shogun and Ninja Assassin) but with upgraded 10–bit processing so that it resolves 1.07 billion colors compared to the 16.7 million colors of traditional 8–bit panels. This all but eliminates the color branding seen on traditional panels and in tandem with AtomHDR lets you see images as you would with your own eyes.
High Brightness Outdoor Monitoring
For scenes that do not have the wide brightness variation of HDR, switch to traditional Rec709 and activate a Brightness slider that lets you take advantage of the 1500nits of brightness from the Flame units. This adds huge versatility for the Flame series – if you have scenes that call for HDR activate the AtomHDR mode but if you don’t, switch to High Bright mode for outdoor monitoring hood free.
Build & Power Management
The Ninja Flame has been rugged built in armour and also now includes the Atomos patented continuous power system pioneered on the HD range. The hot-swappable dual battery system automatically swaps to the second battery when power is low. We’ve moved the DC input to the back to be less obtrusive (won’t get knocked out).
