Atomos, an Australian company which creates 4K and HD Monitor-recorders, a pocket size ProRes recorder, signal converters and power management solutions, has added a Bare Bones model to its product line.
The current Shogun model includes the following accessories: HPRC hard case, AC adapter, SSD media cases, D-Tap adapter, 5200mAh battery, battery charger, XLR breakout cable and SSD docking station. Addressing customer requests for a unit with only an AC adaptor version, in order to utilise legacy equipment which they already own from Atomos, and in an initiative to drive 4K adoption even faster, Atomos have announced a Bare Bones version of the Shogun which removes all accessories except an SSD media case and AC power supply. A high quality soft carry case is also included for protection.
"Shogun Bare Bones is all about accelerating the move to 4K at breakneck speed in combination with the amazing Japanese 4K high quality affordable cameras, allowing customers to utilise legacy Atomos accessories they already own." said Jeromy Young CEO of Atomos. "We still expect the full Battle Ready Shogun loaded with accessories to be popular but now users can decide what makes sense for their first and second 4K camera rig."
