Atomos (http://www.atomos.com), a maker of portable devices for recording to the Apple ProRes codec, has announced integration of its Ninja and soon-to-be-released Samurai field recorders with Final Cut Pro X.
Both the HDMI-equipped Ninja and the HD-SDI Samurai can record up to eight hours of ProRes video onto a single HDD. These compact recorders also work with SSDs, and both devices offer support for ProRes 422 HQ, ProRes 422, and ProRes 422 LT. Priced at US$995 and $1595, respectively, the Ninja and Samurai include all accessories required to start shooting and editing.
Atomos recorders come with touchscreens, video monitors, a “continuous-power” battery-looping system and more. After recording, simply place your Atomos media drive into the supplied docking station and start editing immediately.
