Atomos Shogun Flame

Atomos Shogun Flame

Shoot what you see.

Filmmakers constantly face exposure challenges on set, choosing between detail in the highlights and in shadows. Shooting Log from the camera is a partial solution, recording a broader brightness range but still you need to compromise on the monitor's image quality. The solution is the Shogun Flame, a 7" 10-bit AtomHDR 1500nit Field Monitor with 4K/HD 10-bit ProRes/DNxHR recording, Sony & Canon Raw to ProRes/DNxHR recording, professional HDMI, SDI and XLR connections along with LTC/Genlock & bidirectional SDI/HDMI conversion needed on set and in broadcast. With AtomHDR, you get the brightness and dynamic range of HDR Log with natural, vibrant colors to let you simply shoot the way you see.

"Shogun is going to change the way filmmakers expose an image and will soon makes its way onto nearly every production."

Shogun Flame on Video Cameras:

The Shogun Flame stays on the tripod or shoulder rig setup permanently, especially now that it runs with two batteries we can really just focus on getting the shot and not about when we have to change batteries next. The ability to capture raw to ProRes is the future and Atomos has nailed it once again and are ahead of the curve. The ProRes files we recorded were very clean and the file sizes were small. The 10-bit was gorgeous and really allowed us to push the image in post to get exactly what we had envisioned.

Playback Review:

The ability to playback footage on a nice 7” crystal clear screen has become essential to our workflow. We are able to really dig into each shot to make sure its exactly what we want before we move on. It’s great how we are able to just get all of the features off the screen when showing clients as well so they can truly see the image for what it is.

Dock and Drop into Premiere:

When we record into the monitor, the workflow is seamless in post. The ProRes files drop automatically into Adobe Premiere Pro CC and we are able to start cutting and creating the story. The footage plays natively without any codec issues and plays instantly without having to do any transcoding. With the ability to record the 10-bit signal from our cameras, we are able to retain the quality throughout the edit process. Color Grading the files is effortless, we have full control with creating any look that we need for final output.

"AtomHDR mode needs to be seen to be believed – It’s going to be very difficult to use any other screen besides the Flame now"

The Tesla Shoot:

Cloakroom Media & Flying Dragon Aerial teamed up on a TVC production for Tesla Motors Australia. We were given two production days to complete the filming and put together some cutting edge kit to film from the land and the skies (a pair of Freefly Systems ALTA’s coupled with MoVI M15’s, a Freefly Systems TERO and RED Epic Dragon on both ALTA’s to decrease setup times between each sequence). We were delighted to be invited to test out two pre release products labelled the Atomos Ninja Flame & Shogun Flame.

Clarity, Detail, Brightness:

When we began to setup the Shogun Flame, we powered up our video link and instantly we all were taken back from the image we were seeing. The image was so bright and clear; it was hard to believe it was real at first. It’s super impressive, I don’t think there is any monitor that displays such clarity, detail and brightness all in one, let alone function as a 4K recorder. Its a combination of the AtomHDR mode and the 1500 nit screen that work together to give you that awesome display.

SDI and HDMI Flexibility:

Another setup we required monitoring for was filming from the Van on the track, which we had a Shogun Flame tethered to the RED dragon via HD SDI. Being inside a vehicle, we don’t need the intense brightness so we could dial back the viewing environment to indoor on the Shogun Flame. The beauty of this is that the finer detail in the image becomes more apparent. Our DP for this shoot Matt Wood was in awe! There is something about seeing a DP of Matts level getting excited like a little kid that tends to rub off on the rest of the crew.

The New Monitoring Standard:

In conclusion, for this Tesla shoot both the Shogun and Ninja Flames performed beyond our expectation. It can run all day without a hiccup and the monitoring in AtomHDR mode needs to be seen to be believed – It’s going to be very difficult to use any other screen besides the Flame now. I am confident that AtomHDR will be the new monitoring standard among productions of all scales, and I can not wait to get it on set again for my clients to take advantage of this new and innovative technology.

Perfect For

Ninja Flame


As the industry moves to HDR content delivery, ensure you’re exposing correctly on set with AtomHDR, delivering a post production 10-bit quality HDR image on a field monitor for the first time. DIT’s will appreciate the instant playback at HDR quality and can instantly check footage with the built in waveform, false color and focus peaking tools.

Ninja Flame


Mount Shogun Flame on your video camera and combine world class monitoring with recording from either HDMI or SDI cameras. For select Sony and Canon Raw cameras, unlock 4K by recording direct from the SDI output to ProRes or DNxHR. Monitor audio as well with connection to balanced XLR microphones and the hot swappable dual battery system lets you shoot for hours in the field.

Ninja Flame

Indie Film

The Shogun Flame is a versatile tool on set for Indie filmmakers. Connect with a wireless transmitter and you have a 7” 10-bit mobile director’s monitor, use it in space-tight scenes that call for a DSLR to capture higher quality ProRes/DNxHR or use as a proxy recorder with higher resolution cameras to streamline the workflow. Adding AtomHDR & High Brightness only further enhances the flexibility on set.
