The original Shogun gave filmmakers what they had been asking for. All the Ninja’s talents, with a bigger, 7-inch super-bright screen and both HDMI and SDI I/O. Today’s Shogun is bolstered by new abilities from AtomOS 11, massive connectivity from integrated networking, more codecs, and compatibility with almost every camera.
Shogun is the Atomos dream writ large.
Shogun’s super-bright, large 7-inch screen is viewable in almost every kind of light. Indoors, outdoors, or anywhere you need critical, viewable, instant feedback on your images. With 2000 nits brightness, it’s ideal for checking your HDR footage while you’re still on set. Or play back your recently captured shots on the same pristine screen for review or even uploading to the cloud.
The new Shogun has an ultra-bright, 7-inch HDR screen that’s easily visible outdoors. Capture RAW video from a vast range of DSLR, mirrorless and cinematic cameras with either SDI or HDMI connections. It’s packed with on-screen tools for focus, exposure, customer LUTs and metadata. Shogun takes care of your workflow while you focus on creative ideas.
Improve your shots through accurate framing and check your exposure and focus on a clear, bright screen. We work with all popular camera manufacturers to support the widest range of cameras. Not just for recording uncompressed video via HDMI or SDI but working with RAW formats and being able to stop/start trigger the camera’s own recording.
Shogun can capture RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps and simultaneously output a standard viewable video signal via HDMI or SDI for devices that don’t support RAW formats.
With a versatile 7-inch SuperAtom IPS touchscreen for clear images and easy accessibility to the features in AtomOS, Shogun now has a new operating system and user interface. The screen is designed for outdoor usability, with a generous 2000nits, viewable even in direct sunlight. You can also adjust the screen for optimum performance in dimly lit locations.
You can pair the new Shogun with a huge range of video, DSLR, mirrorless or cinematic cameras. Choose from a selection of industry-standard recording formats, including Apple ProRes. Pick the best frame size, frame rate, and codec for your project and delivery requirements. Shogun also allows you to record HDMI RAW inputs up to 6K at 30fps while simultaneously looping out standard YCC video via HDMI to non-RAW compatible devices.
Pair the Shogun equally well with smaller cameras as part of a minimal setup, or with full-size camera rigs on large-scale productions. Shogun is made from precision materials and crafted for maximum durability with a solid aluminium frame. Weighing only 360g (0.79lbs), you can use it comfortably with a handheld camera. Shogun includes anti-rotational ⅜ – 16 mount points on the top and bottom. It ships with a ¼ – 20 adaptor for easy mounting on industry-standard equipment from a wide range of manufacturers.
Stage clever cinematic shots and save time in post-production with the powerful Onion Skin and Frame Grab features built-in as standard. Onion skin overlay simplifies stop-motion and jump or match cuts. Capturing frame grabs live on set saves time making thumbnails and acts as a quick reference to share with the team.
Shogun includes comprehensive monitoring tools to help you get the perfect composition and exposure in every shot. Easy-to-use but powerful tools include waveform, focus peaking, multiple false colour tools, zoom controls, custom LUTs, and frame guides. Shogun’s new AtomOS 11 software is simple to update with new features and releases – as well as support for new cameras.
From individuals to large-scale cinema productions, Shogun has been built to fit into any camera rig. It features a versatile mount that can be adapted to suit different industry-standard equipment from a wide range of manufacturers. Once locked in place the mount is highly secure and offers anti-rotation settings, so you can trust Shogun to remain in place at all times.
Shogun’s comprehensive range of inputs and outputs lets you capture the highest quality video from the widest range of cameras, and connects you to the cloud, for new, ultra-speedy and productive workflows.
To save space and support longer recordings, many cameras record compressed 4:2:0 8-bit video internally. If the camera is able to output video via HDMI, the quality can often be preserved in a 4:2:2 8-bit or 10-bit format. Shogun can record more colour information and immediately add value to your production with your existing camera rig.
Additionally, if you’re shooting Log footage, the ability to bypass internal compression will offer the best possible dynamic range. Shogun is designed to maximize the quality of your videos and allow you to extend every aspect of your creative vision. Shogun also includes 12G-SDI input, the standard on high-end cinema cameras, including the Sony FX series, Panasonic EVA1, and Canon EOS C series. The robustness and utility of SDI is critical for the productions that rely on it. SDI RAW provides the ultimate experience in terms of flexibility and quality, which makes Shogun the ideal choice for big budget filmmakers around the world.

Atomos AirGlu™ is included with the Shogun and adds wireless timecode, sync, and control technology. AirGlu locks multiple Atomos devices or compatible cameras, audio recorders, and software applications together so that they share the same frame-accurate timecode. It is also able to relay recording, battery status, and disk capacity information to the server unit. Any AirGlu device can act as the server unit, which means you’ll no longer need a huge budget or get involved in time-consuming post-production workflows to produce perfectly synchronized, multi-camera video. AirGlu BT is the Bluetooth timecode sync protocol adopted by many camera and audio manufacturers and AirGlu RF is the long-range sync and control protocol between Atomos connect products.
With flexible options for industry standard formats and RAW codecs, Shogun records visually lossless “hero” files that are ready for editing and proxy/sharable files that look great but are quick to upload.
Shogun is designed to be versatile and meet the requirements of your workflow. Atomos understands the value in being able to select the format, quality, resolution, frame rate, or file size that best suits the needs of your production.
The ability to record up to 8K using advanced edit-ready formats including ProRes RAW, ProRes, and DNxHD/HR requires fast, robust, and expansive storage. Shogun supports removable SSD drives, which provide the space and sustained performance to meet these needs.
AtomX SSDmini drives are more compact than standard SATA SSDs and offer an affordable alternative to an SD card of similar capacity or performance. They support up to 4TB storage, sequential read speeds of up to 550MB/s and write speeds up to 500MB/s. The AtomX SSDmini drives are able to record up to 150 minutes of 4K ProRes. Measuring 8cm long, 7.5cm wide and weighing as little as 88g, the custom-built drive neatly fits into the Shogun Connect without impacting the overall footprint of the device.
There is an optional SSDmini adaptor that allows CFAST II cards to be used, enabling you to recycle older media cards or align with your camera media. Alongside SSDmini we also qualify a range of 2.5-inch SSDs that can be used in conjunction with the MasterCaddy III adaptor in the Shogun box.
With Shogun the only limitation to how much you can record is the size of the SSD. A core principle of Atomos devices is to provide much more flexibility in terms of recording codec, resolution, and frame rate than is normally available with internal recording. SSD media also provides more GB per $ than camera media cards. This provides extended recorded times for long form productions or recording events.

Atomos RemoteView lets you share incoming video on your Atomos screen with other Atomos monitors, as well as with iPads, Macs and Apple TVs wirelessly. You can monitor what’s happening on-set and look through any connected camera taking the shot from anywhere in the world.
Remote view doesn’t need expensive hardware and uses the public internet, so it’s global. But Atomos technology ensures there are no delays. You can receive up to four RemoveView feeds on a single screen. It’s all configurable from a simple web interface.
Powered by a unique combination of AtomOS 11 and Atomos Cloud Studio, you can share with the person standing next to you or someone across the globe just as easily.
For absolute security, you can burn a watermark into each remote video feed, so there’s no risk of copying. You can also brand your footage with your own or your customer’s logo. Or put the movie name, date, type of camera – any information you think will be helpful, burnt into your remote feeds.
Atomos RemoteView requires a subscription to Atomos Cloud Services. It uses Atomos Credits for a simple ‘pay as you go service’.
