The best of AtomoS

The Shinobi SDI utilises their revolutionary AtomOS 10 platform, packed with an extensive suite of scopes and one-touch simple operations. Shinobi SDI includes monitoring tools for focus, framing & exposureEXPOSUREExposure is controlled by three elements: Aperture, Shutter Speed and ISO. Achieving the correct exposure is similar to collecting rain in a bucket, up to an optimum level. The rate of rainfall is out of your control (light), yet you can control these three factors: the bucket’s width (lens aperture), the duration you leave it in the rain (shutter speed), and how effective your bucket is in collecting rain (ISO). These three elements work together to control the amount of light per unit area, preventing underexposure (too dark) or overexposure (too bright), giving you a natural looking image., including Focus Peaking, 4:1 / 2:1 / 1:1 Zoom, Zebra, False Color, Frame Guides, SMPTE Safe Area, Waveform, Histogram, RGB parade, Vectorscope, Anamorphic De-squeeze, new multi-view ‘Analysis’ mode and more. Each feature is customisable and interchangeable in size, best suiting the Shinobi SDI user.
