Shinobi goes large!

Aussie monitor giant Atomos has unveiled the Shinobi 7 – a lightweight, seven-inch monitor-only display, with the same functions as the original five-inch Shinobi. It’s ideal for users of larger cameras who want to keep weight down, and aren’t looking to record to an external device. The £714/$699 Shinobi 7 has a peak brightness of 2200 nits and is ideal for a director’s or focus puller’s monitor, preview display for video switchers, or for vloggers. It can be used with the Z Cam E2 camera, providing direct control of all menus. There are additional USB and RJ45 control ports to provide support for future developments. The screen displays 10+ stops of dynamic range in real time from Log/PQ/HLG signals. Combined with HDR monitoring features, the Shinobi 7 simplifies shooting Log and HDR, while the adaptive cooling mode lets you prioritise reduced fan noise or the peak brightness of the display. You can use your own custom 3D LUTs to feed downstream to other devices or live feed. Up to eight custom LUTs can be uploaded via SD card. Dual slots allow easy hot-swapping of batteries and a dedicated locking DC jack input delivers mains power. An optional DC to D-Tap cableprovidespower fromV-Lockbatteries. With the new Analysis feature, you can now simultaneously see what you are shooting while viewing a waveform, histogram and vectorscope.

The Nanlux Evoke 1200 is a new 1.2kW LED light. It can be used as everything from a fresnel to a spotlight, or a soft source of controllable, flicker-free light by using different modifiers. The power is comparable to the output of an 1.8kW PAR or 2.5kWHMI fresnel, claims Nanlux. Available in both 5600K and Tungsten 3200K models, the £3358/$3380 Evoke 1200 features an interchangeable optics system, allowing the output to be easily modified for different looks. It’s dimmable from 0-100% in intervals of 0.1%, and features a selection of on-board creative effects including flash, pulse, storm, paparazzi, candle, firework, explosion and welding. The intuitive user interface has a 2.8-inch display. It supports wired and wireless operation via Nanlink app, DMX/RDM, Bluetooth and Lumenradio TimoTwo. Dual power and battery options further extend the flexibility of the system.
