Atomos has unveiled its new Atomos Shinobi 7 monitor with a 7” screen and the lightweight Monitor-only function of the original Atomos Shinobi.

Shinobi 7 has a calibrated peak brightness of 2200Nits and can be used in bright environments without the need for a sun hood or for conversion of Log inputs for HDR monitoring.

The touch screen allows 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 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Adaptive Cooling, allows users to prioritise reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display.

In addition to Log to HDR conversions, users can also use their 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.

It has dual battery slots to hot-swap batteries during the shoot or the dual slots can be combined for longer running. The dedicated locking DC jack input allows users to connect to mains power on-set and can also be used with the optional DC to D-TAP cable for power in the field from V-lock batteries.

A new Analysis feature allows users to simultaneously see what they are shooting, view a waveform, histogram and vector scope.
