Atomos Drops Bombshell Shogun 7 with 5.7K ProRes RAW

Atomos Shogun 7
Let’s look at Atomos’ revolutionary new Shogun 7 monitor and recorder.

While just last week it looked like Atomos was tying up loose ends with its pure monitor products with the new Shinobi SDI (read more here), the brand has dropped a bombshell a few days before NAB 2019 with their new Shogun 7.

Not only are we looking at a monitor which can record up to 5.7K ProRes RAW, but it will also reportedly handle up to 4K at 120fps and 2K for 240fps super slow-mo. (With 10-bit 4:2:2 up to 4K at 60fps to boot.)

Introducing Shogun 7

Designed for use either as a live recorder and switcher for events or as your go-to stand-alone field monitor, the Shogun 7 looks to be a true 7” monitor/recording beast. The Shogun 7 will also make use of increased dimensionality with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, 15+ stops of dynamic range, and a brightness of 1500 nits.

With the integration of the 4-Input HD Switching, this monitor has everything that Convergent Design's Odyssey Series ever offered. I owned both the Odyssey 7Q and 7Q+ and loved the features and reliability of those monitors, but did not want to pay the extra $1K for the Apollo upgrade. Now that Atomos has the 4-Input HD Switching built-in plus all the raw licensing as part of the purchase, plus the 1500 nit brightness, this is truly the best all in-one monitor/recorder. Looking forward to getting it as part of my kit for both commercial work where I connect it as a larger monitor for my RED and an accessory switcher for live event work. Thanks for the details Jourdan! -George

Hi George, my Odyssey 7q+ got stolen so I'm looking for a replacement. How is that Shogun 7 working out for you ? Looking to use it with a Sony FS7 for recording and Gemini for monitoring. Thanks!

I love my two Shoguns. But please, have they improved the mirror-like screen so I don't have to look at super closeups of my own nosehairs or clogged pores instead of seeing what's on the screen in bright light? Please, Atomos, please...

I tell stories. Sometimes for money. Sometimes, not.

3M sells an anti-reflection filter for that.
