Atomos Samurai Blade Firmware update

Atomos Samurai Blade

Atomos has released a new firmware update to their flagship portable recorder, the Samurai Blade.

Firmware version 5.1 provides color adjustments of Gamma, Y Lift and Y Gain. It also has improved compatibility with Canon C-log, enabling a one touch switch between C-log and Rec 709.

The firmware improves the Blade’s battery display options “When D-Tap Mode is active, Atomos 5.1 stops constant checking between batteries. This avoids mic clicks due to earth loops in some camera situations. Failover switching will remain active.”

Lastly, it enables color calibration support, featuring calibration Matrix and 1D LUTs for use with the Atomos Spyder.
