While the cashback offer seems pretty straightforward, things may get a bit confusing with the combo of Cashback + Trade-in. This amount depends on the item you are trading in. You will also need to send your trade-in unit back to Atomos/local authorized reseller at your own expense, so factor that in as well.

The trade-in products eligible for this promotion are:

  • Shogun
  • Ninja Assassin
  • Ninja Blade/Samurai
  • Samurai, Ninja 2 and Ninja Star

So, for example let’s say you want to buy a Shogun Flame (costs you $1,695 at B&H), but you also have a the original Shogun in working condition that you want to trade in – Atomos will give you $200 trade-in value in addition to the $300 cashback – for a total of $500 back in your pocket, netting your Shogun Flame to the mere $1,195. Yes, I know, the original Shogun in good working condition is worth well over $200, and it does make more sense to trade in an old Ninja or Samurai Blade and get $100 cashback.

These types of trade-in deals are more benefitial if you are trading in older models as you won’t get much for the much newer Shogun as illustrated above. And this will probably work for those busy shooters who can’t be bothered with listing their original Shogun/Ninja Assassin on ebay or cragislist for example.

In any case, you can even trade in Atomos products that are not working – you get $40 trade-in for example if you trade-in a non-working Ninja Star, but hey it may be easier for some of you to just do the trade in instead of going through the hassle of the 2nd hand market, where you could definitely get more bang for your buck as they say.

To estimate the total value of your cashback in you are doing a trade-in also – please visit and use the drop down menu selector.


If you want to take advantage of the trade-in deal,  you may want to hurry up as it only applies to the first 500 units. The Atomos “Upgrade to HDR” cashback and trade-in deals runs from November 15 and end on January 31, 2017.
