Atomos just announced 2 brand new 4K recorder/monitors with HDR capabilities - the Atomos Ninja Flame and the Shogun Flame. The Atomos Flame Series delivers the world's most advanced 7" field monitor, accurately displaying 10 stops of the luminance detail of Log with 10 bit HDR Post Production colour accuracy for the first time in a field monitor.
Atomos have been on the cutting edge of display technology with the original Shogun, which was followed by the equally impressive Ninja Assassin, which gave even the most budget oriented users an unbelievable value for money and looks like with the new Flame lineup they are about to do the same, this time in the field of HDR monitoring.
The new AtomHDR engine at the heart of the Shogun/Ninja Flame is not only able to resolve HDR brightness detail (dynamic range) with 10-bit Colour processing, but it also resolves 64 times more colour information than traditional 8-bit panels. The new Flame monitors from Atomos have a brightness of 1500 nits, which will greatly assist users in outdoor shooting scenarios in bright sunny days when the highly reflective surface can be quite hard to see; but not with the Atomos Shogun/Ninja Flame - the super high-brightness takes care of all that.
For those shooting in LOG with popular cameras like the C300 or the Sony FS7/FS5 the Shogun Flame makes true 10bit HDR monitoring a breeze, opening your world to vivid detail and extreme colour fidelity that is only normally seen with your own eyes.
Keeping the same Atomos DNA, the both of the Flame monitors also offer professional 4K/HD ProRes/DNxHR Recording, Playback and Editing that has made Atomos famous. 4K up to 30p recording is possible as well as 1080p/120 for slow-motion.
Both the Ninja Flame and Shogun Flame feature a calibrated 7" 1920x1200 325ppi IPS panel with upgraded 10-bit FRC, resolving 1.07 billion colours that will make your life a lot easier when exposing and focusing. The Shogun Flame has SDI and HDMI connectivity, while the Ninja Flame has only HDMI and is targeting mirrorless and DSLR users.
The Atomos Ninja Flame will be shipping before the end of March and is available to order from our website here for just £995 + VAT with free shipping if ordered online. The Shogun Flame will start selling at £1295 + VAT and free shipping if ordered online as well.
