Atomos Ninja 2 at the country of true Ninjas

Being in Japan for for some time, I go to get a Atomos Ninja 2, in a  major electronics store in the Ikebukuro district of Tokyo (As I had a loyalty card, I got the equivalent of 10% discount). Then I go to buy hard disks in the electronics district Akirabara, Tokyo.
