What is the Atomos Shogun for?

I've heard a lot about this but im not quite sure what it is... Is it a monitor for a camera? Is it like a memory card? Can someone give me a concrete answer to this please?

I haven't tried the shogun (but ninja 2 instead). Think of it as a device that can process the image that taken by your camera censor to a preferred configuration. In few simple words, shogun borrow only the censor from the camera and do the rest by itself.

It's an advanced 1080 HD monitor ( 1920x1080 pixels ) seven inch monitor combined with a 4K digital video recorder that uses laptop size hard-drives ( either regular drives or SSD drives ) to store your video files.

The Shogun enables 4K 10-bit 4:2:2 recording with the Panasonic GH4 camera, and 4K 8-bit 4:2:2 with the Sony A7S camera. Files are stored as either Apple ProRes or AVID DNxHD file formats.

It can also record up to 12 audio tracks while recording your video image.

It weighs 1.4 lbs with hard-drive and battery, and a single batter lasts between 3-8 hours depending on which battery you attach to it.
