With the media Blitz about the Shogun’s little brother the Ninja Assassin and the Twins, The Shogun Studio, it is easy to miss that Atomos once again delivered a new OS with fantastic new features.
Atomos OS 6.5 offers quite a list of goodies to add to the Shogun or the Ninja Assassin for free. Yes, free.
Here is the list:
- Motion Blur added to Time-lapse, blurring up to 64 continuous frames together in one sequence
- New and improved frame guides added for 16:9, 2.40:1, 2.35:1, 1.9:1, 1.85:1, 4:3
- 1:1 and 2:1 zoom can now be selected when anamorphic de-squeeze is enabled
The Shogun is in line for special treatment as the top of the mark product.
- Canon C500 Raw and C300 Mk II Raw to ProRes and DNXHR recording, giving C500 users a viable 4K recording solution and C300MKII users a cost effective alternative to CFast recording media
- New 3D LUT’s preloaded onto the unit specifically for C500 and C300 MkII
- Start/stop trigger for JVC and Ikegami camera triggers
- Added LTC input via the Genlock input
i will be digging into these all in more depth in upcoming stories. I am especially excited about the Motion Blur Time-Lapse Feature. Beside the creative aspects, one thing no one has mentioned is that recording time-lapse with your Shogun or Ninja Assassin will actually save you money. When you use your DSLR everytime you fire the shutter you are decreasing the life span of that shutter but with the Atomos solutions, no more shutter wear and tear and possible replacment.
