Atomos Shogun


The 4K Weapon, for 4K Cameras. Introducing an all-in-one 4K recorder and monitor featuring HDMI and 12G SDI, supporting 4K, HD and SD workflows.

Shogun is the worlds most advanced recorder, monitor and playback device for 4K and HD workflows. Featuring HDMI and 12G-SDI input and output, Shogun is an incredibly versatile monitor-recorder solution that supports 10-bit recording to Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD and Cinema DNG raw formats. Constructed from an ABS Polycarbonate with heat-piping technology, Shogun is both lightweight and robust making it suitable for use not only in studios but also in the most challenging field environments.

Like Atomos Samurai Blade and Ninja Blade devices, Shogun features a SuperAtom IPS display with super-sharp 320ppi density and 400nit brightness, but in a larger 7.1" 1920x1200 size. Comprehensive monitoring tools as just one touch away including waveform with luma, RGB parade and vectorscope with 8:1 zoom option; monitor assist tools such as adjustable focus peaking, zebra, false colour, blue only and grid guides; as well as a 2:1 monitoring zoom with image navigation.

Calibrated to SMPTE Rec.709 with 100% gamut and D65 white point out of the box, the impressive SuperAtom display gives users visuals they can trust. With full customisation possible as well as support for Canon C-Log, Shogun can also be calibrated on the fly with the Atomos Spyder device to ensure visuals remain to the Rec.709 specification.
