The Shogun records 10-bit, 4:2:2 UHD 4K and HD video to Apple ProRes HQ,
422, or LT formats. It can also record HD video using Avid's DNxHD format
and UHD 4K video using Avid's DNxHR. Video is recorded to single or raided
2.5" HDD and SDDs for fast and reliable write speeds.
As a monitor, the Shogun features a 7" IPS capacitive touchscreen display
with resolution of 1920 x 1200. It is Rec. 709 color calibrated and
supports multi-frequency operation (48/50/60 Hz) for monitoring of a
variety of input frame rates. An SDI loop output is available for passing
the signal to an additional monitor. As an added convenience, 4K signals
can be internally down-converted and output in 1080p at the same frame
The Shogun adds several new features over previous Atomos models,
including custom 3D LUT support, Genlock In for multi-camera syncing, and
improved audio handling with an included LEMO breakout cable for XLR
audio. There are also a variety of onscreen tools to help you set up your
shots, including a full waveform monitor, RGB parade display, vectorscope,
focus peaking, and other framing, focus, and exposure assisting tools.
This is the full version of the Shogun, which includes an NP-770 battery,
battery charger, 9VDC 3A power adapter, five Master Caddy IIs, a LEMO to
XLR breakout cable, an SSD/HDD docking station, a PowerTap adapter, and a
rugged HPRC carrying case.
Record UHD 4K & Raw Video
Bypass your camera's internal compression and record UHD 4K (3840 x 2160)
video to Apple ProRes over HDMI or 12G-SDI at 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, or 30
fps. The 4K-capable HDMI input makes the Shogun particularly useful for
recording 4K output signals from cameras such as the Sony a7S and
1080p up to 120 fps
Record up to 120 fps in Full HD (1920 x 1080) for high-resolution
10-Bit 4:2:2 Recording
Record in 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD or DNxHR formats from your
camera's uncompressed SDI or HDMI output, bypassing a round of internal
compression and data loss. Uncompressed Cinema DNG Raw 4K video is also
supported from capable cameras.
7" IPS Touchscreen Monitor with Rec. 709 Colour Calibration
The 7" IPS screen features a 1920 x 1200 resolution and provides a wide
viewing-angle of 178° for easier off-axis monitoring. The screen is
calibrated to SMPTE Rec. 709 with 100% gamut and D65 white point, letting
you monitor your colours with confidence. A standard Canon C-Log
calibration is also available for use with Canon EOS Cinema cameras, so
you won't have to look at flat, washed-out looking images on set.
ON-the-fly re-calibration is available with the Atomos Spyder calibration
tool, sold separately.
3D LUT Support
You can preview looks on set thanks to the ability to load 3D LUTs onto
the Shogun. Simply load Cube files on an SSD and access via the "Display
Options" button on the home screen.
HDD or SSD Storage
Record to single or raided 2.5" HDDs or SSDs for faster more reliable
write speeds to manage 4K recording. A 2TB raided drive will give your
over 5 hours of continuous 4K recording in 4K ProRes 422 HQ.
The Shogun offers a comprehensive set of tools to help you set up, focus,
and properly exposure your shots. These tools include a full waveform
monitor, RGB parade display, luma overlay, vectorscope with zoom, and a
test pattern generator for signal calibration. The monitor also provides
focus peaking with multiple levels and colours, false colour in two modes,
and fully adjustable zebra from 0 to 100%.
Supports Video Playback
You can review what you've shot thanks to in-device video playback. The
touchscreen interface allows you to navigate clips and provides softkeys
to play, pause, rewind, and stop footage. Additionally, the playback will
display a preview frame of the selected clip in the file browser.
4K to HD Down-Conversion
4K signals can be internally down-converted and output at 1080p resolution
in the same frame rate as the input. This enables secondary monitoring on
an HD field monitor, or recording a lower resolution proxy copy to a
second recording device
XLR Audio via Breakout Cable
The included LEMO breakout cable lets you record audio from professional
XLR microphones directly to the recorder. The breakout cable offers full
balanced XLR, line/mic, and phantom power input as well as 2-channel
balanced output. With on-screen audio monitoring, you have control over
the recording of eight digital and two analog audio channels. Via the
menu, gain can be separately adjusted for each audio input.
The Shogun lets you synchronize with your camera's time code. Record Run,
Free Run, and Time-of-Day time codes are also available for independent
