Meticulously monitor every pixel of SDR or HDR as it’s captured. Record up to 5.7K Apple ProRes RAW* or 4K Apple ProRes directly to affordable SSD drives avoiding the high costs and limitations of SD memory cards.

Shogun 7 gives a low budget feature film a cinematic edge
How do you make a full-length feature film, with flawless, cinematic values when your camera budget only stretches to cameras already owned by the crew ? The team behind action comedy, School Fight, solved this by adding a Shogun 7 to their existing rigs.

The Shogun 7 is at home on practically any camera
With its ProRes RAW recording capabilities it works with powerhouses like the Canon C300 MKII, Panasonic EVA 1 and Sony FS5 II to create stunning images with maximum detail and latitude for post production. In addition it can transform older cameras like the Sony FS700R into cinematic RAW shooting machines with advanced features like 4Kp60 and 2Kp240 RAW capture.
Use with your DSLR or mirrorless camera via HDMI to get up to 4Kp60 Apple ProRes and AVID DNx codecs for easy editing and archival quality. Add it to a high-end Arri, RED or Sony Venice and you’ll get accurate HDR monitoring and all the tools you need to get your job done.

Unlock the true potential of your camera
Preserve your sensor’s pristine pixels in ProRes RAW at up to 5.7kp30, 4kp60 DCI/HD and 2kp240 DCI/HD.

Amplify the creative advantages of shooting RAW
Shogun 7 takes RAW data directly from the camera’s sensor and preserves the unprocessed image. This gives you more freedom to adjust and finesse every aspect of your video in post-production finishing.
Applying ProRes compression technology to RAW image data adds another edge to your creative workflow. ProRes RAW files are smaller than most proprietary RAW formats so you can import, edit and grade faster and more efficiently. ProRes RAW is supported in Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere and Avid Media Composer*.
Shogun 7 gives you a wide choice of codecs, making it compatible with all major editing software. In addition to ProRes RAW, Shogun 7 records Apple ProRes, Avid DNxHD and HR, as well as Adobe CinemaDNG.
Virtually any HDMI, SDI or Dual or Quad Link SDI source is supported, opening up any new or existing camera. Atomos is proud to support industry standard cameras from Nikon, Canon, Panasonic, Sony, RED, Arri and Z-CAM.
