The Shinobi 7 can be used in the brightest of environments to monitor signals up to 4Kp60 via HDMI or SDI. An ideal directors’ monitor, focus pullers’ monitor, program or preview display for video switchers, and perfect for vloggers presenting to camera. (All quotes are from the Atomos website.)

In addition to Log to HDR conversions, you can also use your own custom 3D LUT to feed downstream to other devices or live feed. Load up to eight custom LUTs at any time via the SD Card Slot and instantly select between them, maintaining creative intent at all times. When used with the selfie mode, the large display acts as a perfect confidence monitor that allows you to ’bake-in’ a LUT to your camera input, to achieve your LOOK at capture for that perfect piece to camera.
