Atomos just announced the brand new Atomos Shinobi 7 – a monitor-only version of the original Atomos Shinobi. The unit has a bigger and brighter screen and takes the foundations of the original Shinobi to the next level.
With a calibrated peak brightness of 2200nits, the Shinobi 7 can be used in the brightest of environments without the need for a sun hood or for conversion of Log inputs for HDR monitoring turning into an ideal director’s or focus puller’s monitor, program or preview display for video switchers and the perfect view for vloggers presenting to camera.
On top, users can easily control their favorite cameras by using the intuitive touch screen of the Shinobi 7, designed to give fast access to the most crucial camera features such as iris, white balance, shutter angle, and ND.
With the optional Atomos USB-C to serial cable, support is available out the box for the 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.
Furthermore, the Shinobi 7 screen displays a stunning 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Combined with the unique HDR monitoring features available onboard, the Shinobi 7 simplifies the complexities of shooting Log and HDR on the fly.
With Adaptive Cooling, you can also prioritize reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display which is another nice touch.
In addition to Log to HDR conversions, you can also use your own custom 3D LUT with the Shinobi 7 to feed downstream to other devices or live feed. Load up to eight custom LUTs at any time via the available SD card slot and instantly select between them.
The dual battery slots, on the other hand, allow users to easily hot-swap batteries during a shoot and never be caught without power. The dedicated locking DC jack input is another power option and can also be used with the optional DC to D-TAP cable for power in the field from V-lock batteries.
Atomos Shinoby 7 also comes with a new Analysis feature that allows users to see simultaneously what they are shooting while viewing a waveform, histogram, and vectorscope, thus ensuring complete control of the live image.
