Atomos have announced their new ‘Flame’ series of monitors. The latest range of products will bring 4K HDR monitoring to the Atomos Shogun and Ninja.
Modern cameras are capable of shooting a much wider dynamic range than ever before, however, most monitors, LCDs & viewfinders are simply incapable of reliably showing what you’re actually recording. Now, Atomos have created the Flame series – the latest advancements in HDR monitor technology, in a camera top recorder.
The Atomos Flame monitors measure in at 7″ (calibrated at 1920×1200 325i), boasts 10-bit HDR post-production colour accuracy (a first for in-field monitors), and runs off the AtomHDR engine, which resolves HDR brightness detail and processes 64 times more colour information than 8-bit panels. AtomHDR allows you to view footage on the monitor as you would with your own eyes, clear and colour correct.
When filming in a traditional style (i.e. not HDR), the new Shogun and Ninja Flame can be switched into Rec709, which activates a brightness slider. This enables shooters to make the most of the impressive, daylight viewable screen. Also, the new units inherit Atomos’ patented continuous power system, enabling you to shoot nonstop (or for as long as you have charged batteries to circulate!).
As with previous Shogun and Ninja models, the Flame series comes with the same high quality, professional 4K/HD ProRes/DNxHR recording, playback and editing that Atomos is known for. All 4K/HD footage is recorded straight from the sensor into 10-bit 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHR/DNxHD, and is stored on reliable, leading brand SSDs. Both monitors feature timelapse and pre-roll options, while 3:2 and 2:2 pulldown removal is also possible. The built-in focus, framing and exposure tools help make post production decision making a breeze, complete with various playback options.
