Atomos has announced the New Atomos Shinobi 7 monitor with 7” screen and touchscreen camera control.
With a calibrated peak brightness of 2200Nits, the Shinobi 7 can be used in bright of environments without the need for a sun hood or for conversion of Log inputs for HDR monitoring. Applications include a director’s or focus puller’s monitor, program or preview display for video switchers, or as a monitor for vloggers presenting to camera.
Camera control is available by using the intuitive touch screen of the Shinobi 7 which is designed to give fast access to camera features such as focus, dynamic iris adjustment, white balance, shutter angle and ND. With an 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.
The Shinobi 7 screen displays 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Combined with HDR monitoring features, the Shinobi 7 simplifies the complexities of shooting Log and HDR, helping users to replicate post-production workflows while shooting. With Adaptive Cooling, users can also prioritise reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display.
In addition to Log to HDR conversions, operators can also use your custom 3D LUT to feed downstream to other devices or live feed. Users can load up to eight custom LUTs at any time via the SD Card Slot and instantly select between them.
Dual battery slots allow users to easily hot-swap batteries during a shoot and never be caught without power, as the dual slots combined allow all day operation. A dedicated locking DC jack input allows connection to mains power on-set and can also be used with an optional DC to D-TAP cable for power in the field from V-lock batteries.
A new Analysis feature allows simultaneous viewing of subject, waveform, histogram and vector scope.
