This new monitor is lighter, more powerful, and easier on the wallet than models that incorporate recording and monitoring. Above all, it comes with impressive touchscreen capabilities for controlling everything from white balance to shutter speed and iris to neutral density. Pair this with Atomos’ “Analysis” mode, which lets users see waveform, histogram, and vectorscope for real-time monitoring. Overall, it’s obvious why creators are eager to add the Shinobi 7 to their kits.

Seamless and touchscreen controls

The Shinobi 7 monitor boasts an array of impressive features, but few match the intuitive and efficient touchscreen controls. With this control option, filmmakers and photographers can adjust iris, white balance, shutter speed, and ND with a swift touch. The monitor also utilizes the AtomOS 10 platform’s monitoring tools for focus, framing, exposure, and focus peaking.
