Other industry standard features such as focus peaking, adjustable zebra, false colour, and blue only can be utilised to make sure your footage is in focus and properly exposed across a broad range of lighting and shooting conditions.
Reviewing footage on the Ninja Blade can save you valuable time and money when it comes to pre-editing your videos. Its SmartLog feature allows you to set in and out points on your clips and tag them with ‘Favourite’ or ‘Reject’. This is then saved to a project and eliminates trawling through hours of footage to find the shot or scene you were looking for.
