Moom Pitchers - The Weekly Video Bit


We are getting more active down here at the shop - and it is not just shifting cabinets and putting out new displays. We are also getting more equipment that can assist with video work.

Of course users of the Canon and Nikon cameras know of the video capabilities of these - they use them every day with the fine lenses to make videos at weddings and worksites and all sorts of things. Some are used for major productions and in big shoots.

One of the new products on our shelves is a recorder for the output for these cameras - the Ninja 2 from Atomos. Our video expert, Mel, has given me the lowdown on this.

It is distinct from the on-board capabilities of the cameras in that it takes an enormous solid-state drive card - 240Gb. It runs 10-bit 4:2:2. It has a camera trigger start and stop. There is a a camera timecode synch in it. And it has a good big screen to let you see what is going in there as you do it.

When you want to mount it on a rig, there are 14" sockets top and bottom - the 800 x 480 pixel screen is one of the touch types. there are focus assist tools and audio level meters and if you are at all inclined to be distracted this can show you as many squirrels as you care to chase.

I noted from the package that the thing runs Mac or PC and mentions the ability to work with Apple, Adobe, and Avid products easily.


Looking at it, it is really a simple black shell box with a huge card slot in the side. Two battery slots in the back. Cable slots and sockets on the same side as the cards slot. Not too heavy to mount on a camera. Please see pictures.


Now, if Mel will set this up and show me how it runs, I will know more.
