Atomos announced the Shogun ‘Bare Bones’ version of their flagship 4K recorder at NAB 20105— with now at an even cheaper price point of $1,695. TheShogun Bare bones version includes the Shogun, AC power supply, soft carry case, and an SSD caddie. It’s basically the most minimal kit for the Shogun. If you have NP-F batteries and HDMI cables of your own you can save yourself around $400 by getting this more streamlined version. Same features, just less accessories. The HPRC hard case and all other accessories from the full version can be purchased separately for around $400.
And now, the rest of the Atomos family including the SDI Samurai Blade, HDMI Ninja Blade and the Ninja 2 are also getting the “Bare Bones” treatment. This of course means, now these recorder/monitors are even more affordable. The Samurai & Ninja Blade Bare Bones are now $795, and the Ninja 2 Bare Bones is $395.
Atomos just released a few demo videos showing off the new upcoming 2015 updates in AtomOS 6.3/6.4/6.5 including Sony FS Raw, Uncompressed 10bit 422 v210, 4K Anamorphic de-squeeze, and much more.
