Atomos has launched a new off-camera recorder for video, the Ninja Inferno HDR, and it looks brilliant. It’s essentially a slightly scaled-back version of the Shogun, but also for about half the price it’s more accessible and more than what most DSLR shooters would be able to handle or want.

Most of us will never work with the best videos cameras Hollywood has to offer and that means the cameras we do work with are limited in one way or another. If you want to surpass those limits, you can sell a vital organ and pony up the big bucks or; if you enjoy functioning like a normal human being, you can buy an external recorder. If you are in the market for the latter, Atomos has released yet another external recorder to support the rapidly advancing video market. The new Shinobi from the Order of Atomos is intended to keep pace with the latest 10-bit 4k60p cameras in the form of a 7-inch HDR calibrated monitor. Let’s take a get a brief look at the Ninja Inferno HDR 4K60p Monitor Recorder.

In the past, shooting video on a stills camera would breed frustration because the video you shot on your camera could not match the dynamic range available in your stills. In recent years, the trend has been to unlock the full capability of your cameras sensor and make it available in its video. Now you can better monitor your HDR footage and if you also want 4k60p and high frame rate slow motion you can pre-order your Atomos Ninja Inferno HDR  here.

The  new Atomos Ninja Inferno HDR will be available March 31, 2017.
