Atomos just announced a nice pre-NAB surprise, the Atomos Samurai. I’ve written a bit about their prior field recorder the Ninja. Its a really fantastic device. These devices are able to record loss less pro res video straight to a hard drive (or SSD) using an HDMI input. The Samurai takes what’s great about the Ninja and makes it even better. It features a 5″ touch screen, HD/SD SDI pass through, timecode and genlock, and multiple camera support. The Samurai is available for $1495.
If you’re interesting in checking out more info on the either the Samurai or the Ninja, take a look over at Atomos.
Thanks to FreshDV for the heads up.
