Atomos has just introduced the Ninja Phone, a completely new product that, while it follows in the line of professional video production monitors that we’ve seen from Atomos over the years it, offers a bit of a twist. This new tool capitalizes on the powerful features of the iPhone 15 Pro and Pro Max, creating a seamless blend of mobile technology and professional video capture capabilities.

The Ninja Phone is built around Atomos’ new AtomIC 5 silicon, which enables it to perform complex video processing tasks while maintaining a super lightweight and silent operation. The device only weighs 94 grams and draws a mere 2.4W of power, emphasizing efficiency without sacrificing performance. This integration with the iPhone 15 Pro models, known for their robust titanium construction, ensures that you can enjoy both durability and high-quality video production capabilities.

One of the Ninja Phone’s standout features is its ability to record in both Apple ProRes and H.265 formats, providing flexibility in file management and quality. It supports 1080p and 720p video resolutions across various frame rates, making it suitable for a wide range of filming conditions.

The Ninja Phone boasts an impressive display essentially because it uses your iPhones. As such, you get to use the stunning Apple XDR OLED display, which delivers a peak brightness of 1600 nits and a contrast ratio of 2,000,000:1, offering unparalleled clarity and detail in viewing footage. This high-resolution screen (460ppi) is ideal for precise video monitoring and editing on the go.

Atomos has also incorporated a new cable management system designed for mission-critical recording scenarios. The Ninja Phone uses specially designed cables that lock securely into place, preventing accidental disconnections during shoots. This feature is particularly useful in dynamic filming environments where equipment reliability is paramount.

In addition to its advanced hardware, the Ninja Phone enhances cloud-based workflows. It allows for dual recording—capturing high-quality ProRes RAW and more compressed H.265 files simultaneously, which facilitates immediate uploading and sharing of content. This is especially beneficial for real-time broadcasts and social media engagements where speed is crucial.

Atomos continues to support its legacy devices, ensuring that the Ninja Phone is backwards compatible with accessories from previous models like the Ninja V and Ninja V+. This commitment to compatibility helps users transition to new technology without the need for additional investments in new accessories.

The Ninja Phone is priced at $599, making it accessible to professional videographers and content creators who need portable, high-quality video capture capabilities. It is expected to start shipping in early September 2023, and demonstrations will be available at industry events such as IBC in Amsterdam.

For those interested in merging the flexibility of mobile technology with professional-grade video capabilities, the Atomos Ninja Phone presents a compelling new option.
