Atomos Analysis
We know how important to see what you’re shooting at all times. In the Analysis feature, you can simultaneously see what you are shooting, view a waveform, histogram, and vectorscope, ensuring complete control of your image. The user can switch between different waveform, histogram, and vectorscope options on the fly with a single touch.

HDR in the field
The Shinobi SDI 5.2” screen displays a stunning 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. It’s combined with our HDR monitoring feature that simplifies the complexities of shooting Log and HDR. This feature helps you to replicate post-production workflows and while shooting.

Real-time LUTs preview
You can apply and compare the looks for post-production in SDR or HDR from your favorite LUTs for your camera or from your post team for consistency across shoots. The Shinobi allows you to load up to 8 custom LUTs at any time via the SD Card Slot and instantly select between them, maintaining the creative intent at all times.

Calibrated true-to-eye colors
Calibration is the key to a reliable monitor. The Shinobi monitor can be calibrated using X-Rite’s i1DisplayPro for ongoing accurate HDR and Rec709 monitoring. This provides accurate monitoring for reliable results. The Monitors drift and calibration is the only way to ensure your eyes are not deceiving you.

The Battery Life is Longer
The Shinobi requires very low power in standby or monitoring modes. This battery was designed for monitoring purposes only. This translates into your daily routine or all day, the battery life lasting endurance when you’re at the end of a shoot.

Designed for every situation
When you attach the Shinobi 5.2” display to your camera, the size and weight of your monitor matter. The Shinobi is shaved down to 196g and added ¼”-20 screw mounts top and bottom for ease of cage and adaptor rigging. In addition, the center mount battery makes balancing easy and flexible.
