For harsher conditions,choose a solid state drive. Harshtreatment that may not actually damage the drive may interruptrecordings at a much lower level of severity. We recommend that youexperiment with your drives by testing them in the conditions that younormally work in.
Which drives should you use? There are so many drives available, and new models appear all thetime. We are not able to test all drives but here are some guidelines. Speed and reliability are the main factors. This gives you a frame of reference for comparison. See thesection below about when you should consider using SSDs.
We onlyrecommend Intel SSDs at this stage as we have had unreliable resultsfrom all other drives. They areparticularly sensitive to this type of motion. If you do this too quicklywhile the drive is spinning, you may get a small gap in your recording.
Practisethis manoeuvre so that you are able to do it smoothly. It is alwaysbetter to do this in-between takes. Gentle and cushionedmovement may be OK. Aswe receive reports of drive durability and reliability, we will post themon www.

Spinning disks are mostsensitive when they are rotating. Mechanical Shock and VibrationHard disks are precision mechanical devices that need to be handledcarefully. You will be using the same type of drives that are normally usedin notebook computers, and you can use this as a guide to whether youneed to use mechanical drives or Solid State ones for any proposedprojects.
If you think a particular usage scenario would be suitable for anotebook computer, then it will probably be OK for a mechanical driveinside a Samurai. You may even findvariations between drives of the same type. Backing up and archivingRemember that no storage medium, including tape, optical disks,spinning disks and flash memory, is completely immune from failure.
You should bear this in mind when deciding how to manageyour recorded content. At the very least, you should consider theconsequences for you and your business if your storage medium wereto suffer from a sudden failure, and you should back up your contentaccordingly. Hard drives that you can use for archiving are becomingincreasingly affordable.
You may find that it is completely feasible foryour to keep your master Samurai disks on a shelf just like tapes! Theywill be perfect for tripod-mounting, and also for the majority of hand-heldwork. We would advise against hard-mounting them on moving vehicles Atomos Samurai — User Manual Edition 2: November 4.
What you also need cont. Select the typethat best suits your application and conditions.

Just insert the disk into the caddy, and securewith four screws. The caddy is light and the disk just needs to be heldsecurely. There are no connections tomake because pushing the caddy into the Samurai or the Dockingstation makes all the connections for you.
Spinning disks and SSDs are very sensitive to damage from staticelectricity. Always makesure that the disk connector faces the slot in the Samurai. A quick visual check willconfirm this. We suggest squeezing the cornerstogether near the screw you aretightening for optimal fit. Push latch torelease batteryThe Samurai is a battery powered device, and has a special feature toensure that you never have to interrupt a recording to change a battery. We will come to this shortly.
Like all batteries, you will need to take care of them. Charge new batteries before using them. The supplied Samurai chargercan charge two batteries simultaneously. There are four red LEDindicators for each battery. This will show the approximate stage thecharging process has reached. Always use battery slot for the first battery. This is effectively yourprimary battery and the Samurai will not start without it. Battery slot No. Once the Samurai has been started from battery slot No.
To insert the batteries, gently slide them down into the slot and lockthem into position. To remove a battery, push the latch to release it. Eachbattery has its own latch, which is located to the right of batter No. Pull thelatches towards the batteries to release them. Batteries do not charge in a linear way. At first they charge very quickly,and then the rate slows down to a trickle.
While charging, one or morered lights will blink. It is perfectly OK to use the batteries at this point and we recommendstopping at this stage for the longest battery life. Samurai batteries and modular accessories Connect Converters, etc are held in place very tightly because they are on the outside of thedevice and there has to be no possibility whatsoever that they couldwork loose, so you will have to be quite firm with the battery latches. We suggest that you familiarise yourself with the force required toremove the batteries and accessories so that you can do this quickly inthe field.
Make sure that you hold the top and the bottom of the batteryor accessory module when sliding it off to avoid dropping it when it isreleased from the main unit.
The Samurai introduces an Atomos technology called Battery Loopingfor continuous power. When power is running low on one battery, the Samurai will automatically switch to the second battery, you can removeone of the batteries and replace it with a fully charged one.
Samurai will continue to operate as you do this. You can continue this processindefinitely.
