Atomos Ninja Star is a Tiny ProRes Recorder for GoPro

Atomos Ninja Star

The Atomos Ninja Star is a $295 HDMI recorder that measures 3″ wide, weighs 3.5 ounces and records 10-bit 4:2:2 ProRes to CFast cards.

It features no display, which makes it an easy companion for the GoPro. However, it also has an HDMI-out port, which allows you to loop the signal through the Ninja Star and out to a monitor for composition or review. As a result, it works well with other cameras where you need a compact rig.

Whatever camera you are coming from, the Ninja Star will bypass the heavily compressed internal codec and provide much cleaner footage.

The Atomos Ninja Star should be available soon here at B&H Photo.

    A $295 dollar piece of gear, that requires a $650 dollar flash card, so essentially, this little item is costing you a grand.

    Why do they not make something like this with an optional SATA port so you can connect an SSD? They are much bigger, much faster, and much much cheaper.

    This device does not record to DNXHD format. Only Prores HQ, 422, and LT. It shows it right on that nice crisp image in your article with all the lights. Just a heads up. :) It is also stated on their own product page and on bhphotovideo.com
