Atomos Shinobi 7" 4K HDMI/SDI Monitor - $899 - on back order
Shinobi 7 combines a large 7" HDR screen with a calibrated peak brightness of 2200nits and the lightweight monitor-only functions of the original Shinobi. The Shinobi 7 can be used in the brightest of environments to monitor signals up to 4Kp60 via HDMI or SDI. An ideal directors' monitor, focus pullers' monitor, program or preview display for video switchers, and perfect for vloggers presenting to camera.
Control your favorite cameras by using the intuitive touchscreen of the Shinobi 7, designed to give you fast access to the most crucial camera features. Focus on the beautiful image and make dynamic adjustments of 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.
The Shinobi 7 screen displays a stunning 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Combined with our unique 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. With Adaptive Cooling, you can also prioritize reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display. We look after the technology so you can focus on the storytelling.
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 at any time via the SD Card Slot and instantly select between them, maintaining creative intent at all times. When used with the selfie mode, the large display acts as a perfect confidence monitor that allows you to 'bake-in' a LUT to your camera input, to achieve your LOOK at capture for that perfect piece to camera.
Shinobi 7 utilizes the AtomOS 10 platform, and is packed with an extensive suite of scopes and simple one-touch operations. Shinobi includes monitoring tools for focus, framing & exposure, including Focus Peaking, Focus Peaking, 4:1 / 2:1 / 1:1 Zoom, Zebra, False Color, Cine and Social Frame Guides, SMPTE Safe Areas, Waveform, RGB Parade, Vectorscopes, Anamorphic De-squeeze and 3D LUT support.
We understand how important it is to see what you're shooting at all times. With the Shinobi's Analysis feature you can simultaneously view what you are shooting, a waveform, histogram and vectorscope, ensuring complete control of your image. You can even switch between different waveform, histogram and vectorscope options on the fly with a single touch.
With dual battery slots you can easily hot-swap batteries during your shoot and never be caught without power. The Shinobi was designed from the ground up to optimize battery usage while monitoring, as the dual slots combine to allow you to run all day. The dedicated locking DC jack input allows you to connect to mains power on-set, and can be used with the optional DC to DTAP cable with V-lock batteries to power the Shinobi 7 in the field.
With support for up to 4Kp60 via the HDMI inputs, the Shinobi 7 cements itself into any video workflow by enabling cross conversion between 4K HDMI and 3G-SDI signals. Output low-latency video signals, with the ability to bring HDMI cameras into SDI workflows or vice versa without the need for additional convertors.
Factory calibrated for Rec.709, Shinobi 7 also supports user-calibration via the free Atomos Calibration software for ongoing calibration. Using the optional USB-A or USB-C to Serial cable and X-Rite's i1DisplayPro/Plus, the calibration software easily automates the calibration of the screen to ensure accurate and reliable monitoring results.
