The Shinobi 5" 4K HDMI Monitor is an on-camera monitor with DCI 4K, UHD 4K, and HD video input. It features a 10-bit FRC IPS screen with a brightness of 1000 cd/m², which makes it suitable for use in both exterior and interior conditions. The AtomHDR display technology allows you to accurately monitor your log gamma footage without having to view flat, washed-out looking images or use a LUT to compress the dynamic range and color space. The monitor supports popular log formats from Sony, Canon, Panasonic, ARRI, RED, and JVC cameras.

Built to withstand the rigors of production, the Shinobi features a lightweight plastic chassis and powers from a single L-series battery. Additional features include a variety of onscreen exposure analysis, framing, and focus assist tools, as well as anamorphic de-squeeze. A 12V power supply with L-series battery eliminator is included with the unit.

AtomHDR
With AtomHDR you can monitor up to ten stops of dynamic range of your camera's LOG image. Most conventional monitors can only display six or seven stops, which is fine for standard footage; but a Log image will look overly flat. It is also superior to monitoring with a loaded LUT, which can clip the highlights and mask shadows.

5" Daylight Viewable Screen

HDR Signal Management
Log and HDR signals can be difficult to monitor with conventional equipment. Though, with the Shinobi's built-in HDR signal management functions, the log signal can be converted to the PQ standard for compatibility with existing consumer and professional HDR equipment.
Anamorphic De-Squeeze
The Shinobi supports Anamorphic de-squeeze, allowing you to comfortably view anamorphic footage with a squeeze of 2x, 1.5x, 1.33, and Panasonic's 8:3.

Atomos Shinobi Reviews

Terrible

By Zach
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-24

If you consider yourself even close to a professional DO NOT buy this monitor. Garbage build and viewing quality, menu system feels like it's from the 80's and very few of the features actually function as advertised. Do yourself a favor, buy the Ninja.

If you are looking for JUST a monitor, and not a recorder, this is the best option. It has all the monitoring tools you need and almost double the battery life compared to the Ninja V. This monitor is extremely light and durable. I would highly recommend this product.

This has made outdoor wedding shooting so much easier. I can see it even with direct sunlight hitting the screen. It's feather light and makes manual focusing easy.

Versatile and bright, a must for cameras that do not show waveform monitors and vectorscopes. ... The first one I received was defective. The picture started often flickered, especially when I used the larger waveform scope. Sometime, when I'd iris up, it'd flicker. I tried a variety of HDMI cables and different cameras. I got an RMA from B&H and ordered a new one that arrived a few days later.

Bought this monitor to use with my A7iii. Best decision I made. Great in outdoor use in sunlight with the 1000 nit of brightness. Not too heavy and keeps my setup at a good size. Highly recommend.
