Free AtomOS 10.3 update

Posted on Mar 28, 2020 by Super User

Atomos’ latest update enhances the Ninja V with new frame guides for social media, improved false color and new anamorphic de-squeeze options

New features:

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.

Anamorphic De-squeeze

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.

About the Ninja V HDR monitor-recorder:

The Ninja V is a recorder with a touchscreen-controlled 5” HDR monitor that allows the user to accurately expose and deliver cinematic quality from Log or RAW video. It has display modes for PQ and HLG HDR standards, plus standard video. Users can also load their own custom creative looks (LUTs) directly on the Ninja V.

The high brightness 1000nit screen can be easily viewed outside and provides users with a brilliant window into the world, allowing flawless composition, focus and the exposure of shots to perfection.

The Ninja V runs Atomos’ own AtomOS operating system with an intuitive user interface. A series of modules will allow for SDI expansion and multi-camera sync.

The Atomos Ninja V is available from all Atomos approved resellers.
