Atomos Shinobi SDI - New Monitor Announced

The NEW Atomos Shinobi SDI is a 5″ super-lightweight 4K/HD HDR camera-top monitor with HD-SDI input/output and a 4K HDMI input connection interface.

It seems like the guys at Atomos don’t really sleep much. Last month they announced the Shinobi – an HDMI connection interface-only monitor, and today, its more professional sibling has just been announced. The new monitor prides itself of being compact, durable and ultra clear/ultra bright in daylight (1000nit display). The anti-reflection as well as anti-fingerprint screen has a pixel density of 427 PPI (pixels per inch) and is factory calibrated for color accuracy. Users owning a camera with SDI can greatly benefit from this new monitor.

Weighing just 226g/7.8oz (exc. batteries), the Shinobi SDI is light enough to sit comfortably on top of a camera, or on an arm out in front of the operator, in place of a viewfinder.

A full suite of scopes – waveform, RGB parade, vectorscope and audio-level meters, combined with focus peaking, 4:1 / 2:1 / 1:1 zoom, customizable zebras, false color, frame guides and broadcast safe markers are of course also included, as part of AtomOS 10. A complete picture of what is going on in the image at once can be achieved by engaging the new multi-tool ‘Analysis mode’.

The Atomos Shinobi SDI should is now available for pre order for $499 / €499 plus local taxes.

Are you  an owner of the Atomos Shinobi HDMI? Please share with us your experience with using that monitor.

Yeah, I can live with the HDMI, but c’mon, to realise the SDI literally two months later, not ideal. The monitor is good, but feels cheap. I’d rather pay twice the price and have the build quality of the ninja and have SDI inputs.

Portkeys BM5 5″ is starting to look a little bit more tempting, but I’m a little bit concerned they go the way of video devices.

I really like my Shinobi hdmi a lot. I got it for run and gun because my shogun flame is too bulky to sit on camera. I like it better than the small hd focus because the false color, and other monitors were similar to my other atomos. I would have paid a bit extra for the Sdi version and wish they had been released at the same time though. I don’t have an sdi camera currently, but have in the past, and plan to in the future. I already shorted an hdmi cable since getting the Shinobi. It’s just not as good as sdi.

My only complaint about this would be they really should have announced the two models at the same time. I am sure a lot of Shinobi HDMI owners bought one, sighing, wishing that they made an SDI version, but settled for HDMI. I have a camera that has both HDMI and SDI and I would easily pay another $100.00 to use SDI because HDMI is so bad.

Me as well. It’s not horrible since i only have hdmi cameras at the moment, but I much preferred it when I had an fs700. My next camera will have it for sure too when I upgrade to a more current body from my C100.
