“Is that a 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video recorder in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me?”…
By Allan Tépper | October 29, 2014
Over the past several years, I have reviewed several 10-bit 4:2:2 HD video recorders, but the Ninja Star that Átomos sent me to review is certainly the tiniest: It weighs only 230 grams (8.1 ounces) including battery and media, which qualifies for many low-capacity drones. As you’ll see ahead, Ninja Star fortunately does not sacrifice any audio/video quality for its size. Its two secrets? It has no built-in video monitor, and it records onto the breakthrough new CFast format I recently covered, which is also used by other pioneers like Arri and Blackmagic.
