Atomos Shogun Quality?

PostSun Jan 21, 2018 1:57 pm


I am going to rent out an Atomos Shogun and then use the playback feature on the URSA mini pro to play the footage on the Atomos Shogun's monitor and then record the footage onto an SSD as a new file. I am doing this because my SD card is corrupt and will not be read by any laptop but the footage is still there on the card and can be viewed flawlessly on the external display via the playback function.

My question: how much, if any, of a quality drop/resolution drop will occur when I record the footage via the playback and through the Atomos Shogun?

What was the resolution, framerate and codec you used on the original file?

I think if you were not recording RAW you should be oke.
Also if you were recording 4K 50/60 fps you need a Shogun Inferno. As a Shogun will go up to 6G sdi / 4K 30 fps maximum.. ;)
