Atomos has just released the latest AtomOS 10.41 firmware update for the Shogun 7 monitor/recorder. In addition, the latest update brings new features such as social media frame guides, IRE% labelling for false colour, additional anamorphic de-squeeze options and lots more.
This update basically (almost) mirrors the 10.3 update for the Ninja V, and that’s great news for Shogun 7 owners. Do read more details on what’s new in the latest Shogun 7 update below.
AtomOS 10.41 New Features for Shogun 7
Added Social media focused frame guides with safe areas:
- 1:1 Square aspect ratio for Instagram and Facebook
- 4:5 Vertical aspect ratio for Instagram feed video
- 1.91:1 Landscape, horizontal aspect ratio
- Facebook, Instagram and Twitter
- 9:16 Portrait, vertical aspect ratio
- Instagram Stories/Instagram TV and Snapchat
Added 9 Grid overlay:
- Providing the ability to utilise the rule of thirds theory for image composition.
Legalize input signal levels:
- Ability to specify input Luminance range, for increased compatibility with devices outputting legal range YUV signals in Rec.709
- The Input menu option allows for the input to be set to ‘Legalize ON/OFF’
- This is basically the same option as on the Ninja V (read more about it here)
New Anamorphic de-squeeze options:
- 1.8 x providing the ability to de-squeeze on full frame sensors. For example, the Panasonic S1H when used with Cooke Anamorphic/I lenses, in both standard and Special Flair versions.
- 1.25x providing the ability to de-squeeze lenses such as Ultra Panavision 70 and Panavision Ultra Panatar lenses.
- IRE % labelling added to false colour scale
Rolling File naming:
- Ability to maintain a continuous rolling file naming structure following formatting of a drive
- An option provided to turn this function on and off
17:9 DCI Letter box support:
- Support for SDI inputs with a 4096 x 2160 or 2048 x 1080, HDMI 4096 x 2160 with resolution are displayed in a 17:9 aspect ratio.
Tool bar order:
- Based on user feedback the order of the tools in the bottom bar has been updated to enable faster access to the tools such as magnification and false colour. Vector Zoom tool has been removed but the full vector scope can be viewed in large format.
The Atomos Shogun 7 has been a solid monitor/recorder for on-set use, and with these new updates it gets even better. I personally love the fact that Atomos decided to add new anamorphic options and also the ‘Legalize Input Signal’ option. The latter will make post-production for Log-recorded footage a lot easier.
