Atomos Shinobi - the new super bright, super light 5 1920x1080 HDMI monitor that packs a punch for just $399US posted: 18/02/2019

Go everywhere and see everything exactly how you want it with the Atomos Shinobi - a high brightness 1000nit 5-inch HDMI monitor that's perfect for vloggers, creatives and photographers. When you're shooting video on mirrorless cameras and DSLRs, the Shinobi gives you the perfect view and is packed with the latest features, but is small and light enough to take anywhere - weighing in at a mere 200g (7 oz). Shinobi shares the same HDR 1920x1080 display and color processing found in the multi-award-winning Atomos Ninja V monitor/recorder. With a professional 1000nit brightness screen it can be seen clearly even in daylight. It has an impressive pixel density of 427 PPI (pixels per inch) and is factory calibrated for color accuracy. Shipping today, the Shinobi costs just $399US / 399 plus local taxes.

The polycarbonate body is lightweight and durable. It has - 20 mount points on the top and bottom to allow flexible mounting. A headphone jack on the side allows users to monitor audio from most cameras even if it doesn't have a built-in one. Clear on-screen audio level meters give users confidence that their audio is set correctly.

Shinobi can run for up to six hours on a single Sony NP-F750 type battery, already commonly found in most video shooters' kit bags. A clear on-screen battery gauge shows the status of the battery and when it is running low. The central position of the battery mount on the rear of the Shinobi ensures good balance when mounted to mirrorless cameras.

Atomos is well known for its AtomOS 10 system with simple to use touch-screen interface. The Shinobi has the latest monitoring features of AtomOS 10, allowing users to quickly and easily check and adjust image settings to best capture their creative intent. In moments they can magnify the image or engage peaking to check focus, pull up false color, a histogram, zebras or waveform to gauge exposure, or add guides or markers to aid composition. The interface has clear, yet unobtrusive icons which allow the image to be the focus of attention - and with a simple swipe all the menus go away for a totally clear view. These features allow the user to really concentrate on their shot and its framing. Vloggers will especially value the flip-screen function which mirrors the image when you are filming yourself talking to your audience.

Atomos CEO Jeromy Young said, Our single biggest customer request has been a stand-alone Photo and Video monitor - Shinobi answers that call. We've taken our pro color and HDR processing and designed a super lightweight monitor that any YouTuber or IGTV creator can afford.

For broad compatibility the Shinobi's HDMI port can accept signals up to 4K (4096x2160) at 30fps, or HD video up to 60fps. The screen can also perfectly display 10+ stops of dynamic range when being used with Log or HLG HDR outputs. Atomos' advanced color science gives a complete range of

in-built gamma presets to match popular cameras when shooting Log or HLG.

Creative users who want to see their Log or flat images with a creative look applied can easily load LUTs directly into the Shinobi's built-in memory. Simply place a compatible LUT onto a SD card and pop it into the Shinobi, then load it into one of Shinobi's eight internal preset LUT memories. Once done any of the eight LUTs can be recalled immediately for speedy comparison. In addition, countless more LUTs can be kept on the SD card and loaded in when needed. The same SD card slot can also be used to install any future firmware updates.

For more advanced uses the Shinobi features a new multi-tool Analysis view that simultaneously shows the image, plus waveform, histogram, vectorscope and audio-level meters. In addition, there are multiple options inside each of these tools. This give the operator a complete picture of what is going on in the image at any time.

Although the Shinobi is designed primarily for smaller cameras, its advanced features mean that users of larger cine cameras, traditional camcorders or other Atomos monitor/recorders may also find it an excellent additional monitor for their needs. It also enables operators on multi-camera shoots to have the same high quality HDR monitoring on additional cameras.

If shooting Log or HLG HDR the Shinobi features the Atomos HDR engine that allows the operator to see more dynamic range on screen at once. Users simply engage a dedicated preset for their camera and around 10 stops of dynamic range are shown, giving an accurate representation of the image in HDR while shooting. It can also be used to give a much better indication of what the image can look like after post production. You can also connect the Shinobi to your Mac or PC for use as an extra monitor while editing - even in the field.

A major benefit of Shinobi is that it can be properly color-calibrated using free Atomos software and the X-rite i1Display Pro probe. All monitors' colors drift over time and routine calibration ensures that the colors remain as accurate as when they originally left the factory.

Photographers can also benefit from using Shinobi for their work. Instead of composing and assessing an image on the small built-in camera LCD screen the Shinobi affords photographers a larger, clear view of their all-important shot. Having a Shinobi and your camera in live-view gives a color accurate preview, plus instant review of composition, exposure and focus during a shoot. Landscape and studio photographers in particular can benefit from this way of working.

The Atomos Shinobi is available now from authorized Atomos dealers
