Atomos Shinobi gives the big picture for vloggers and filmmakers

null

The Atomos Shinomi is a high-quality five-inch LCD display which is designed to offer a big-screen display for those shooting video with the best 4K cameras, including DSLRs and mirrorless system cameras. On display at The Photography Show, this external screen allows vloggers and filmmakers to mount the screen on the hotshoe of their cameras. 

Thanks to its HDMI input the Shinobi is compatible with most recent cameras, smartphones and other video devices. It weighs just 196g, thanks to its polycarbonate body, and features a 1920 x 1080 16:9 5.2in LCD screen. 

Atomos is well known for making monitors with built-in video recorders – such as the Atomos Ninja. But this this is the company's first small-sized standalone monitor – allowing it to be a much more affordable option for the videomaker.

The screen offers a full ten-stop dynamic range, allowing videographers to preview HDR video in the field. It supports a wide range of LOG formats (such as Canon's CLog/CLog2/CLog3 and Sony SLog/SLog2/SLog3) – and can then display these in a variety of ways to replicate your post-production workflow, using LUTs (look-up tables).

There are a wide range of monitoring features, as is usual for an Atomos device - including RGB histogram, focus peaking and focus peaking.
