Atomos takes Shogun 7 up to 3000nits, boosts Nikon, Panasonic and Sony capabilities1 min readReading Time: < 1 minute
A typically busy IBC at the Atomos stand, with a stunningly bright firmware upgrade for the Shogun 7 as well as all manner of new capabilities for the Panasonic Lumix S1H, Sony FX9, and Nikon Z7 and Z6 cameras.
Lots to take in with Atomos in Amsterdam, but let’s start with the company’s own hardware and the eye-catching — quite literally — firmware upgrade to the recently launched Shogun 7 pro/cinema monitor-recorder-switcher. This boosts its peak brightness to an impressive 3000nits from its original 1500 at release which is a definitely a crowd-pleaser, though details on what impact this might have on battery life and power draw are a it less certain.
Atomos says the firmware update is available with immediate effect. Meanwhile, the long-awaited Touch and Switch 5 Stream switching and Dolby Vision playout features are also both due for official firmware inclusion later this month and are being showcased on the company’s IBC stand.
