Monitor, record, and switch in the field with the 7", 1920 x 1200 Shogun 7 HDR Pro from Atomos. This versatile on-camera recording monitor offers up to DCI 4K raw recording and HDMI and 12/6/3G-SDI inputs/outputs. With the AtomOS 10.4 firmware update, the Shogun 7 provides ISO recording of up to four HD-SDI camera streams plus program capture. Output your content for director or client viewing in Dolby Vision HDR using the Shogun 7, AtomOS10 platform, and a compatible display.

This touchscreen monitor supports resolutions up to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 60p and up to 2K at 240p for slow-motion effects. Record to 2.5" SSDs using Apple ProRes Raw, ProRes, CinemaDMG (up to 30p), and Avid DNxHD codecs. Record all your event's action with live multicamera monitoring, recording, and switching between program and up to four 1080p60 SDI ISO camera streams. When used with Final Cut Pro, a fully configurable, multicamera .xml can be generated for easier editing.

The Shogun 7's 10-bit (8+2 FRC) panel features 360-zone backlight, 3000 cd/m² brightness, and a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio. Its native AtomHDR (log) display enables you to more accurately monitor your log gamma footage without having to view flat, washed-out images or use a LUT to compress the dynamic range and color space. Built-in presets accurately translate popular log formats from ARRI, Canon, Fujifilm, JVC, Nikon, Panasonic, RED, and Sony cameras.

Save editing time by tagging your footage on the fly and recording directly to Final Cut Pro x, Adobe Premiere, or Avid Media Composer formats (third-party plug-ins may be required for tagging).

Power the Shogun Inferno with a single Sony L-series battery; dual battery plates support hot swapping, enabling longer uninterrupted runtimes. For audio recording, the monitor supports balanced XLR inputs with +48V phantom power via a separately available audio breakout cable. Additional Shogun 7 features include genlock input, BNC timecode input, SDI/HDMI cross conversion, and a variety of on-screen exposure analysis, framing, focus assist, and other display tools.

Atomos Shogun 7 Reviews

Image looks weird - total regret

By Matthew
Rated 1 out of 5
Date: 2021-12-02

The screen when the image is underexposed or if you aren't looking at it at a 90degree angle looks horrible. Very hazy. I would not recommend this monitor.

Clean and Amazing

This is my second Shogun 7 kit. When you rely on something so frequently, a backup is good insurance. I use the Shogun 7 to record up to 4 SDI signals and use it to produce a switched program output to an encoder for streaming. The video and audio quality is outstanding, and it is very easy to learn and use.

Wow 2 units with problems then really bad customer service

By Jonathan

From the get go our 2 Shogun 7 units where...quirky then they just started getting harder and harder to use until they finally burned me on a shoot. I have had other versions of Atomos recorder monitors and the have always been a solid, well thought out, truly useful products. I even had to send one Shogun Inferno back that I had scratched the screen really badly, sent, recieved, repaired, fixed, no problem! I went through the painstaking back and forth with Atomos tech support, documenting my various issues, taking and sending pictures and then videos of the issues before finally got through the maze of creating a ticket. I get confirmation they made it to Atomos, Then more back and forth with proving the point of sale, B&H, with two different documents. I finally got an RMA pack the units up and sent them back.I get confirmation they made it to Atomos, yay! Atomos tech support emails me to say they bench tested the units and did observe one of the problems, but they did a forced firmware update, even though the units I had sent in had the latest firmware running when I sent them. I responded please be sure because these units had been acting crazy and I really need them to work. I get another email from the Atomos techs stating we can replace the motherboard for 800.00 but claimed they where in working order according to their bench tests...huh! So I told them to send them back, and thanks for saving me 1600.00 bucks. I got the units back unpack them, oddly they seemed like they had never been opened at their end... and promptly set them up, ran tests using different camera's, different 12G SDI cables on my cameras and they exhibited the EXACT same issues that the techs said they could not reproduce! Once again I go through the entire create a ticket, send us pics and video of the issues, then finally I get another RMA to send them in again, for mother board replacement. I package the units up and send them off at this point we have been working with out the units for weeks. I get confirmation they made it to Atomos...and then I go this email. Hi Jonathan, Upon detailed investigation and thorough testing we have concluded that the issues you were experiencing with your unit were not hardware related. We have tested your units with brand new mainboards and had the same Slog 3 to Slog 2 issue. We have reached out to engineering for further help and were told that this is a bug with the Shogun 7 firmware. This has been forwarded as a feature request and a fix is hopefully coming soon with one of the future firmware updates.  This issue, although annoying, will not influence the way your videos are being recorded. We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding. Your units are shipping back today. WOW!! This is absolutely unacceptable Atomos, I had to adjusted my workflow and put projects half shot in RAW on hold. while I waited for a repair to resolve the problems. Atomos can do better, and has done better. I have not bothered to reintegrate the units back into my camera rigs. To say I am completely disappointed and feel like I just got played is an understatement. Sadly I just simply have no faith in these units and very little in Atomos as a company.

Overall good

Very bright, image looks nice, and exposure metering is adequate. Meters not comparable to smallHD though, nor is focus assist/peaking. And it seems Atomos is enabling RAW recording on the Ninja V but not this more expensive product for some reason. Great monitor for steadicam or for the director / anyone away from camera, fan makes some noise. Big and bulky for on camera.

Wildly Inconsistent Color

I should start by telling you that my Ninja V was extremely orange from day 1 and after working around it for a year I finally sent it in to get factory calibrated. As soon as I got it back my brand new Shogun 7 showed up extremely pink! Atomos can't seem to make two monitors that even remotely match in color lately!

Beautiful big screen, not compatible with my mirrorless

By Ryan

I love the 7 screen, very nice product but I wouldn't advise if you want to record from most mirrorless cameras, as this seems to be built for larger cinema cameras.
