The Highly-Anticipated Atomos Shogun 4K Recorder is Now in Stock & Shipping

At NAB 2014, Atomos introduced what would become the year's most highly-anticipated filmmaking product: the Shogun 4K external recorder and 1080p monitor. As of today, the Shogun is in stock and shipping from B&H.

The significance of the Shogun is not just that it records 4K video -- there are numerous external recorders that can accomplish that feat -- but that it does so via an HDMI connection, which makes it the perfect companion for the new generation of mirrorless cameras like the Panasonic GH4, Sony A7s, and the Samsung NX1, all of which can output a 4K signal via their mini HDMI output. 

Here are the basic features and specs of the Shogun.

shogun features
  • 1920x1200 IPS Touchscreen Display
  • Records 4K (3840x2160) up to 30 fps
  • Records 1080p up to 120 fps
  • ProRes and DNxHD 10-Bit, 4:2:2 Encoding
  • Uncompressed Cinema DNG Raw 4K Support
  • UHD 4K-Capable HDMI Input
  • 12G-SDI Input and Loop-Output
  • Stores to Single or RAID HDDs or SDDs
  • Rec. 709 Calibrated with 3D LUT Support
  • XLR Audio LEMO Breakout Cable Included

In case you missed last week's post about getting the Shogun set up and working with a range of different cameras, here's Stefan Czech's fantastic review/tutorial once again.

If you're interested in picking up an Atomos Shogun (maybe as a belated Christmas present to yourself), they're available now from B&H

My goodness that is one powerful device. At first I wondered if it were worth the price if you don't want/need 4K on the A7s, but once I realised how great the various tools and features were...sold!

Do Atomos sponsor these posts? How many product updates do we really need on this product?

I love reading comments complaining about too much free content.

Where is the demo on the 3D LUT application? Did I miss it in the video above or it was not elaborated?
