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.

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.

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.
