GH5 and BMPocket 4k best Atomos for both?

PostFri Jan 24, 2020 5:25 pm

I am torn between the Atomos Ninja V and the Shogun Flame 4K.
I am coming from a photographers world morphing to video and still learning. Oh so much to learn...
I would really appreciate opinions on what Atomos I should get and why.
I did not buy the pocket 4K yet but I want to soon to ad to my system.
Thanks in Advance

I believe that the HDMI output from the BMPCC4k is only 1080p so you probably don't want to use an external recorder with it.

My thought is I could record to a Samsung T5 and just view on the BMPCC4K.
But could use recording function and view when I used the G5.
Both Atomos models are almost the same price.

Shogun is an older model. The Ninja V will have more life with updates. I have the Ninja V its good with my GH5's

I could b wrong but I was talking about the Shogun Flame 4K which I believe it is the newer model.
The flame has dual battery's too. I was wondering if the 7" size looks weird or feels unbalanced on such small camera's.

Flame isn't a current product on the ATOMOS site https://www.atomos.com/

Ahh,I was looking at an older website.. Thanks for that info. I decided to pull the trigger and scored a like new used Atomos Shinobi. My plan is to use it on the GH5 and record to the cards in camera and just use it for a viewer. Mt old eyes are getting tired. When I get the Pocket 4K I will use it to view and record to my Samsung T5 I already have. I like the compact size of the Shinobi and the 1000 nits should be good enough with a hood. We will see. Thanks all!
