The Atomos name keeps popping up all over the place lately. They’re teaming up with a lot of different camera brands to try to give filmmakers the tools and features to best create what they want to create. We stopped by the Atomos stand at IBC 2019 to have a chat with their Founder & CEO, Jeromy Young about some of those collaborations, as well as some news on Atomos’ own products, including a free firmware update for the Shogun 7 which doubles its brightness from 1,500 nits to 3,000 nits.
Atomos have announced at NAB2016 that they are allowing owners of Atomos recorders to update their firmware to all of their devices except the Ninja 2, giving everybody the ability to record HDR video absolutely free.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. HDR. It’s usually pretty hideous, overdone, ugly, etc., but when it comes to video, the look and purpose of HDR isn’t what we typically see in the world of stills photography.
