    Camera Log (S-Log2, S-Log3, C-Log, V-Log etc) delivers maximum sensor detail in your recordings, but on monitors it looks washed out & makes judging exposure difficult. AtomHDR brings post production HDR monitoring to the field, displaying high brightness range Log footage with the brightness and vibrancy as the eye sees it on our SuperAtom IPS 8-bit 400nit calibrated monitor.

    This entry level HDR monitor lets you use your current HDR Log camera to future proof your production for HDR. We are proud to deliver a free update to HDR on the existing range. We can offer this because we are in complete control of every aspect of the product – panel, processing and display.


    Real time monitoring with the SuperAtom 5” IPS 325ppi 1280x720 capacitive touchscreen. Monitoring functions at your fingertips including waveform, vectorscope, luma parade, RGB, focus peaking, zebra, false color & blue only.


    Maximize use of your camera’s spectacular lens & sensor. Bypass internal high compression recording to H.264 / AVCHD / MPEG & upgrade to virtually lossless ready-to-edit 10-bit 422 Apple ProRes and Avid DNxHD with the Samurai Blade.


    Create HD proxies on the Samurai Blade as you record 4K at the camera & in real time rough cut your footage. Tag it as Favorite or Reject and save as a project, ready to finalize in the studio.


    Record to standard 2.5” HDDs and SSDs. A 1TB HDD gives you 10+ hours of Apple ProRes HQ. Buy your choice of media that is afforda
