Atomos Ninja Star gives all of the benefits of recording direct to Apple ProRes, eliminating MPEG compression and transcode, reducing image degradation, overcoming the 30min barrier. It's ready for Post production in a form factor perfect for when size and weight is critical. The mounting plates are included. Just like the Atomos Monitor/Recorder range, Ninja Star bypasses the cameras internal MPEG compression and records direct to 10-bit 422 Apple ProRes onto compact high speed CFast cards.  With Playback controls, the Ninja Star can instantly review captured footage when connected to a larger monitor or TV using the micro HDMI connection. The Ninja Star is the world's smallest, lightest Apple ProRes recorder (130g/4.6oz). Small enough to fit in your pocket, light enough to hang from a quad copter and with 5 hours battery life likely to outlast the camera in the field.
