The Ninja Star is the world's smallest, lightest Apple ProRes recorder (Weighs only 130g/4.6oz).
Small enough to fit in your pocket and light enough to hang from a quad-copter - the Ninja Star is the go-anywhere recorder. Perfect for GoPro's, DSLR's, mirrorless cameras like the Lumix GH4, Sony A7s, or camcorders like the Canon EOS C100 Mark II. Mount anywhere, just grab and start recording high-quality 10bit 422 ProRes in HQ/422/LT flavour whatever your post-production workflow requirements.
* Record Straight from you camera's Sensor
Take your consumer camera to a truly Pro recording device. Avoid the internal MPEG compression & go from sub 30Mbps MPEG to 220Mbps ready to edit 10-bit 422 Apple ProRes HQ.
* Eliminate the 30 min recording limit
Recording straight out from the sensor means no more 29.59 minute record limits on your internal recordings. Whether you’re filming a soccer match or birds in the wild there is no need to worry about your recording stopping at 29.59 minutes.
* Ultra Long battery life
The Ninja Star is an efficient little beast meaning it can keep on going for over 5 hours on one battery. Record for the whole shoot and play back all on the included battery.
