Adventure and travel photographer Lucas Gilman was featured in our blog earlier this year, highlighting his First Descent video and discussing his newly acquired Nikon D800 and the workflow that comes with having the ability to record externally via the Atomos Ninja 2 recorder. Lucas has just been featured on a slightly more prestigious website you might be familiar with;

You might be familiar with Apple’s editing and organizing software, Aperture. Apple’s Aperture in Action section highlights photographers who use the software on a daily basis. Lucas is such a photographer plus he made use of the software on location for a recent shoot for Red Bull. “My client, Red Bull, wanted to see the images as soon as possible. They didn’t want some tourist with a point-and-shoot camera to post it first and steal the fanfare. So being able to use the fast browsing feature in Aperture to process those images onsite was critical.”

  1. I have had great luck with the Atomos Ninja-2 on the Nikon D4.

    I set up a Rig with the Atomos Ninja-2 on the Nikon D4.

    From my blog:
    Once set up all I have to do is start Live View (in video mode) and start the Ninja-2 recording. When I cycle the Live View button on the D4, the Ninja-2 starts recording when Live View is on and stops when I shut it off. Each time the Ninja-2 creates a new file for the next take. I turn on the Focus Peaking to ensure perfect focus and it stays on the whole time (does not reset when Live View is cycled). Perfection!
