Atomos has come out with the Samurai Blade. Much higher quality screen for monitoring with waveform, etc. Curiously, they have not changed the Ninja 2, but are definitely marketing it to DSLR users.

They have however dropped the price! It is now $695, instead of $995.
They are going squarely for the 5D Mark III guys and the upcoming HDMI out update. [tentblogger-vimeo 63580120]
