Atomos Shinobi SDI Overview

  • 1Description

Double your video input options with the Shinobi SDI 5" 3G-SDI & 4K HDMI Pro Monitor from Atomos. The flexible Shinobi SDI is on-camera monitor with both 3G-SDI and HDMI inputs, supporting up to DCI 2K via SDI or up to DCI 4K via its HDMI input. It features a 10-bit (8+2 FRC) IPS screen with a brightness of 1000 cd/m², suiting it for use in both exterior and interior conditions.

The Shinobi SDI's AtomHDR display technology enables 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. Preview SDR or HDR LUTs in real time and choose from up to eight custom LUTs loaded in via the SD card slot.

Built to withstand the rigors of production, the Shinobi SDI features a lightweight plastic chassis and can be powered from either a single L-series battery or via the included AC adapter. Additional features include the AtomOS 10 platform with a variety of onscreen exposure analysis, framing, and focus assist tools, as well as anamorphic de-squeeze.

DCI/UHD 4K HDMI and HD-SDI Capabilities

Choose between monitoring up to DCI or UHD 4K footage via HDMI, or up to DCI 2K via the 3G-SDI input.


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.

5.2" Daylight-Viewable Screen

The Shinobi SDI features a 5.2" IPS LCD screen that is illuminated by a bright 1000 cd/m² LED backlight, making it possible to view in daylight without requiring a hood. Plus, the screen is also color-calibrated from the factory to ensure accurate image representation.

HDR Signal Management

Log and HDR signals can be difficult to monitor with conventional equipment. With the Shinobi SDI'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.

AtomOS 10 Platform

The AtomOS 10 platform offers an extensive selection of display tools including focus peaking, 4:1, 2:1, 1:1 zoom, zebra, false color, frame guides, SMPTE safe area, waveform, histogram, RGB parade, vectorscope, 2x, 1.5x, and 1.33x anamorphic de-squeeze, multiview 'Analysis' mode, and more.

    Atomos Shinobi SDI Reviews

    Shinobi SDI 5- 3G-SDI & 4K HDMI Pro Monitor is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Overheating, Other Issues While on an indoor shoot in a climate controlled ballroom, I had my screen become unresponsive and fail to turn on for several minutes after changing the battery. Most recently, out of the blue, it stopped correctly recognizing the output signal from my FS5 via SDI. While shooting 2180/24p the Shinobi incorrectly showed it as 2180/60p and displayed only a blank screen. The issue is intermittent. There is a noticeable delay in what’s being displayed on the Shinobi vs my camera’s monitor. Odd as it’s SDI getting fed a RAW signal. There’s also lot’s of time where the screen shows “no signal” when making changes. Seems that its slow to recognize or process the signal. These monitors clearly aren’t ready for prime time.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from so far so good Great monitor for the price point. Bright enough to use outdoors but it does warm up quite a bit. I did not have any malfunctions but the screen gets ALMOST too hot to touch after about 15 minutes even when indoors. As of right now there is no firmware update for the SDI version, hopefully when one is released it will alleviate some of the heat issues.
    Date published: 2019-06-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Quality On Camera Monitor So easy to navigate through all the tools with the improved menu display and the picture looks amazing. Wish it had Blackmagic LUTs built in but you can upload your own. The multiple input options make it usable with all of my cameras.
    Date published: 2019-06-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bang for the buck Great looking screen, bright, has all the right tools, easy to navigate interface, and the price is painless. Very lightweight. Battery life is good as well. So far, I can find no fault with monitor. I’m happy to add it to my kit.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from great monitor, dead pixels Unit came with dead pixels.  Bright enough for daylight, good feature set.

    Does this monitor playback RED DSMC 2 footage at 8k 60fps?
    Asked by: brad
    The Shinobi is a monitor. There is no internal recording capability or data storage. The Shinobi doesn’t “playback”. The Shinobi’s inputs are 3G-SDI 4K or 4K HDMI. Research the RED DSMC’s output capabilities during playback. Does it’s output capabilities match the listed Shinobi’s input capabilities? To help you out, here are Red’s listed playback specs. It does not playback 8K60 or even 4K60. By the listed specs on the website the Red max playback is 1080. 3G-SDI (HD-SDI) and HDMI with DSMC2 expander module 1080p RGB or 4:2:2, 720p RGB or 4:2:2 480p RGB or 4:2:2 (HDMI only) SMPTE Timecode, HANC Metadata, 24-bit 48 kHz Audio

    Does it work with the Kinefinity cameras? I know the shinobi HDMI did not.
    Asked by: Benjamin
    Hello Benjamin, as long as it can output a regular video signal (like 720, 1080) we should be able to see it. if it has any weird formats, we would not.
