Atomos Shogun Pre-Order Special Offer

We all knew it had to be right around the corner. And here it is. Atomos has just announced an amazing field recorder, the Shogun. Shogun marks Atomos’ first 4K field recorder unit. Like their Samurai series of products Shogun has a 7” monitor for full composition assist functionality. Shogun offers 12G SDI input and HDMI 2.0, both offering single cable 4K input. It allows for inputting 1080p signals up to 120 frames per second. Video is encoded into ProRes 4K in a 10-bit 4:2:2 format. It can also record Cinema DNG RAW files over the SDI This would run about 600mbps. This is the obvious and logical companion to the Panasonic GH4 and the Sony A7s cameras. From the Sony A7s you would get 8-bit 4:2:2 strait out of the cameras native HDMI. From the Panasonic you could take 10-bit 4:2:2 out of the built-in HDMI or, with the Panasonic docking expansion model, you could take RAW 4:4:4 out of the SDI output. This niftily little device is expect to cost less then $2,000. The unit is expected to ship by the summer.

Re: Atomos Shogun Pre-Order Special Offer

But it will only record 4K at 30P. If it did 60P it would be great. Would be a nice alternate for my FDR-AX1 if it recorded 60P over HDMI 2.0
