Atomos Shogun Inferno Update - High Frame Rates for Sony FS-Raw With AtomOS 8.1

atomos-shogun-infernoIn case you were too busy stuffing your face with turkey over the holiday season, Atomos announced firmware the Shogun Inferno Update to AtomOS 8.1.

It’s an update almost entirely for Sony FS users, bringing high frame rates for Sony FS-Raw up to 2K 240p, as well as Hybrid Log Gamma support.

The Shogun Inferno is the flagship field monitor/recorder from Atomos. The 7″ unit features a host of recording, exposure and monitoring aids.

The Flame/Inferno line came as an update to the original Shogun 7″ monitor/recorder early last year. Check out our review on the Atomos Shogun Flame for the low down on its spec list, including its most significant updated feature, HDR view. Add to that features list 4K 50/60p recording and future quad 1.5/3G SDI input support and you have the Shogun Inferno.

New Features in the Shogun Inferno Update to the AtomOS 8.1 Firmware:

• High frame rates for Sony HD/2K Raw 100/120/200/240p for recording and playback
• Hybrid Log/Gamma (HLG) in and out can now be accessed from the Monitor page
• Further improvements to 3:2 pulldown functionality

Bug Fixes:
• Sony FS7 DCI 4Kp50/60 locking improved via HDMI
• Waveform monitor added for all 2K modes
• DCI 4Kp60 synchronized audio playback improvements at DCI 4Kp30
• Time lapse functionality has been improved
• The occasional red flash frame issue while recording, which did not affect the recorded footage, has been improved

So the new AtomOS 8.1 firmware allows you to record up to 240p on the FS7, as well as supporting other Sony FS cameras like the FS700 and FS5. It can be a frustrating wait sometimes for third party companies to catch up and fulfil promises the camera manufactures set, so this will be a welcome update for Sony users who are particularly looking to utilise high frame rate recording abilities.

It’s great to see camera technology as old as the FS700 still receiving support like this. Sadly, the same cannot be said for the likes of the Canon C500 – another old but robust system that cries out for an update like this to unlock high frame support.

This update has a huge bug. It produces a weird interlaced image at 4K DCI/30p. Atomos has acknowledged this and is working on a fix.

Probably worth knowing that this firmware update brings a bug to Sony RAW 2k/4k at 25 & 29.97. It’s looks like misinterpreted filed orders on my fs5.

Wrote to Atomos and they confirmed it, already had to roll back the firmware because of this. Really lucky I tested it before going on a shoot.

Can anyone confirm that 4k 120 burst is now working? None of the literature seems to address this?

So, they’ve had messages about the bugs, but it’s still available for download?
More Customer Support Fail from Atomos.
Inferno crew, be thankful, you could own an original Shogun and still be waiting for CineDNG support on Canon, Arri, Aja cameras.
