ATOMOS Subforum?

Hi folks. Wondering if it isn't time to open up an ATOMOS Ninja/Samurai subforum now that some of us are in receipt and starting to use them...

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Are you saying that you have recieved your Samurai? I am still waiting on mine and the last I talked to customer support they had not shipped. I am waiting patiently. Thanks.

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

If we can draw enough folks that actually have these products in hand, then yes we'll open a dedicated board.

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Marty: having spoken to two dealers in the past 4 days, what I'm hearing is the delay on Samurai is due to some cool new additions being added to the firmware before release. And no, I don't have a Samurai yet but do have access to a Ninja in our office that I have JUST begun to play with...

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

The dealer that I have mine on order with says Oct 15 is the date. I traded emails with customer service at Atomos last week and they said they were shipping. Take that with a grain of salt. What I can tell you is that I informed them that I have a shoot around Oct. 25 that requires SDI capture to ProRes and they said that I will have it in plenty of time. I am hoping that is accurate. But...I am also pessimistic at the same time!!!

Are you able to confirm that the Samurai ships with an SDI cable? I need to make sure I have everything ready. I think the Samurai says it has a "mini sdi-adapter" in the included accessories list....not sure what that is exactly. My dealer says it includes and SDI cable....but I cannot confirm this and obviously don;t want to be left with a Samurai and no way to connect it!

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Hi Marty. I'm planning on getting the samurai so would be really interested in how useable it is in the field.

One thing that I'm not sure about is the audio inputs: 1/4 jacks don't sound secure enough, compared with say the Aja xlr inputs, and I wonder if the audio pre-amps are up to Aja quality. I hope so as the price and other features look great

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Would love for there to be an ATOMOS sub-forum.

My contact here in the US said they are doing final testing this week and should start to ship by weeks end. Not sure if that means from China where they are manufactured or Australia where they are based, but I don't expect to see mine before middle of next week at the earliest. I am open to being happily surprised though ;)

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Received an update about my Samurai order today, from Creative Video in the UK. Shipping was expected tomorrow (19th October), but is now expected 3rd November. No idea if this is a dealer specific thing or global or what, just thought I'd let you in on my info. D

PS
Atomos subforum - yes please!

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

I would very much like for there to be an Atomos subforum. I am considering the Ninja and it would be nice to have all of the threads / posts about the Atomos products in one place.

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

I have an Atomos Samurai 'on-order' in the U.S. Based on my telephone conversation with a U.S. vendor, it seems the 'Samurai' is running late. November is the current 'shipping target'. No specific date, just November. My natural pessimism has kicked-in, the date seems 'soft, which means delivery will probably be closer to December before I see any hardware. 'Hope for the best, plan for the worst'. I don't have any specific 'deadline' need for this device, so other than my 'childlike' desire for my 'toy', I can accept most reasonable delivery dates.

This is here-say, water-cooler rumor, and certainly not an 'official' update.

Just my $0.02 worth, YMMV.

Regards,

J.

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

That's the latest I am hearing too and I think the expectation of a December delivery may be more like it. Oh technology........

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

Here in Australia the latest I have is that my unit will be shipping November 2. But one ETA announcement has already passed for me so I'm not so sure. Yes I would like a sub-forum please.

Re: ATOMOS Subforum?

This is directly copied and pasted from the Atomos homepage about 30 seconds ago:

Samurai Shipping October 26
Samurai production is on schedule for October 26 shipping date, and will be available to the general public from November 1

That tallies with what my supplier said ...
