Like many of you out there I just received an email from Sony promoting the new FS5. While it seems like a great addition for Sony, I noticed one interesting image that caught my eye. The bottom left image shows the FS5 with an Atomos Ninja Assassin.

While I will reserve my judgement till I get hands on with a unit, but I will say that Sony acknowledging Atomos position in the market by showing off one of their brand new models right next to the FS5 is certainly a strong statement. But I think I would use the Shogun, personally.

 

Below are the tech specs for the Sony FS5
