Atomos is pleased to announce that the new AtomOS 10.3 update for the award winning Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder is now available as a free download from the Atomos website. This continues the company’s commitment to Ninja V customers by listening to their feedback and bringing new features and enhancements, making the award winning 4K HDR monitor-recorder even better.
Frame Guides for Social Media
Ninja V is a great tool to help you shoot social media content. Framing shots for posting on Facebook, Youtube, Instagram or Twitter each have different aspect ratios. AtomOS 10.3 brings new frame guides so that social media content will always be properly composed and fit the different formats. For Facebook, Twitter and Instagram videos there are guides for 1:1 and 1.91:1.1. Portrait Instagram mode is catered for with a 4:5 ratio guide and there is also 9:16 for Instagram stories/TV, Snapchat and YouTube.
9 Grid overlay
A 9 Grid overlay function has been added to this update: perfect for applying the rule of thirds theory to your image composition.
Legalize HDMI input
The update provides Ninja V users with the ability to manually apply a Full-to-Legal range conversion on the recorded input. The setting provides the option to legalize REC.709 inputs
that are using Full range (8bit 0-255 / 10bit 0-1023) to accurately map these to Legal range (16-235 or 64-940) for increased flexibility with NLE systems.
IRE Scale for False Color
False color is an essential tool, helping filmmakers to get correct exposure. An IRE % scale with values has been added to False Color mode view to help enable accurate exposure of skin tones when exposing.
With the increase in the use of anamorphic lenses in productions we’ve added 1.25x and 1.8x de-squeeze to allow compatibility with a wider range of anamorphic glass.
Rolling File Naming
Scene, Shot and Take file names allow users to accurately name planned shots as if using a conventional slate. This firmware update adds the ability to maintain continuous rolling file naming and take counts after re-formatting a drive. This function can be turned on or off in the file naming menu.
