Atomos Ninja Blade vs Blackmagic Video Assist


I currently have a C100 MkI and I hope to get one of these monitors/recorders soon. What would be your choice and why?

Thanks in advance

I would go with the Atomos.

BlackMagic has the reputation making gear with great specs but worse user-friendlyness.
The end result might be the same but the Atomos recorder will deliver it easier.
Also the the BlackMagic requires 5D Mk III batteries and SD cards which are both much more expensive than the Sony NP batteries and SSDs required by the Ninja.
