Atomos Release Shinobi 7

Shinobi has a “bigger and brighter screen” with a calibrated peak brightness of 2200Nits for on set monitoring or preview display for video switchers or for vloggers presenting to camera. It has HDMI 2.0 support for 4Kp60, 3G SDI support up to 2Kp60.

The Shinobi 7 screen can be controlled by the touch screen. The optional Atomos USB-C to serial cable supports Z Cam E2 series camera, providing direct control of all the menu configurations. The additional USB and RJ45 control ports on the Shinobi 7 also provide support for future developments, as more options are added for touch screen camera control.

It displays 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Combined with Atomos’ HDR monitoring features, the Shinobi 7 “simplifies the complexities of shooting Log and HDR, helping you to replicate post-production workflows at the moment when it matters most – while shooting”.

Adaptive Cooling allows you to prioritize reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display. In addition to Log to HDR conversions, you can also use your own custom 3D LUT to feed downstream to other devices or live feed. Load up to eight custom LUTs via the SD card slot and select between them.

The unit has dual battery slots allow for hot-swapping during a shoot. A dedicated locking DC jack input allows you to connect to mains power on-set and can also be used with the optional DC to D-TAP cable for power in the field from V-lock batteries.

A new Analysis feature allows users to simultaneously see what you’re shooting, view a waveform, histogram and vector scope, ensuring complete control of your image.
