AtomOS 7.1 Firmware Update Adds New Functionality and Improves HDR on Shogun Flame and Ninja Flame

Atomos just released firmware update 7.1 for their latest Flame Series HDR Monitors/Recorders – the Atomos Shogun Flame and the HDMI-based Atomos Ninja Flame. The latest firmware update adds HDR support for JVC Log, so good news for all you JVC LS300 shooters, and all current RED Digital Cinema cameras including DSMC2 cameras – the Red Raven and Red Scarlet-W. In addition to adding support for the aforementioned cameras, Atomos have implemented a new mathematical algorithm for better tonal mapping when shooting in LOG with supported cameras. Shooting in LOG and monitoring in HDR can be a bit tricky at first, so Atomos have also implemented a new simplified HDR waveform yellow line in AtomOS 7.1 to help you gauge the correct slider position for the dynamic range of the scene. Waveform Auto – is another super neat new feature that maps the actual max dynamic range of your scene, which looks super helpful.
