THE ATOMOS SHINOBI
The Atomos Shinobi 4K HDMI and Shinobi SDI are exceptional monitors, featuring a bright 1000 nit 5.2" screen with 10 stops of dynamic range. The monitor includes a variety of exposure and focus assist tools to insure your footage is properly exposed with critical focus.
The Shinobi exposure guides include a Waveform for luminance, RGB Parade for color balance, and Vector Scope for hue and saturation. These tools, especially useful for the underwater filmmaker, allow accurate and fast judging of exposure, even in the most uncooperative lighting scenarios.
Critical focus can be achieved using various peaking tools. Focus Peaking Color displays the original color image with the sharpest areas outlined in a selectable color. Focus Peaking Mono provides the same overlay but on a monochrome image. Focus Assist Outline shows only the false color outline on a black background of the sharpest areas.
THE NAUTICAM NA-SHINOBI-S UNDERWATER HOUSING
The Nauticam NA-Shinobi-S follows suit with the strong foundation Nauticam has built around previous Atomos monitor/recorder housings. The NA-Shinobi-S supports the Shinobi SDI monitor.
The Shinobi is easily mounted in the housing, dropping in without trays or other mounting accessories and is held in place by two rotating locking levers.
The NA-Shinobi supports up to the NP-F970 size battery which provides approximately 4 hours of run time. A CR-2032 battery powers the vacuum check and leak detection system. When used with the included Vacuum Valve, the system gives real-time feedback about the watertight integrity of the housing through an easily visible multi-color LED on the top of the housing.
Access to the touchscreen controls of the Shinobi are handled via a series of buttons and a selector knob beneath the screen of the housing.
