The Shinobi monitor is a high brightness 1000nut HDMI monitor that's designed for vloggers, creatives and photographers. Supporting 4K output, it features a 'run all day' single battery, HDR capability and a selfie Mirror Mode for vloggers. Weighing in at just 200g, Atomos describes Shinobi as one of the lightest 4K monitors on the market.
The screen also has anti-fingerprint technology to help keep your view of your footage as crystal clear as possible. In addition, Shinobi includes monitoring tools for focus, framing and exposure to ensure you're able to get the best shot possible.
Jeremy Young, Atomos Co-founder and CEO, says, "The Shinobi line has been our highest selling monitor ever, the volume into the booming social media video segment has been astounding. This has enabled us to increase volume production and as always, we pass on the cost savings to our loyal customers. $299 for the advanced 5” 4K HDR Shinobi continues Atomos’ drive to democratize cinematic style video production for the masses.”
With reductions on two amazing products, we're sure both the Shinobi and the Shinobi SDI are about to fly off the shelves.
