The unit itself feels extremely cheap and almost like a toy. I've read online of people barely dropping these from less than 12 inches and the screen cracking, I can totally see that happening and even holding it I am paranoid that I will break it. Atomos claims that it chose to manufacture it out of plastic to keep costs down but internally it is reinforced and not to worry. Personally I would have paid a bit more to have it made out of Carbon Fiber or even a magnesium body to keep weight down but still be strong.
The software features are very good! It's really the only reason why this is getting a 3 star, Atomos did a good job with what this recorder offers in terms of functionality. I'm sure with the future updates it's only going to get better. The display is beautiful and accurate, although not the best in direct sunlight but most of my work is indoors so I'm not too worried there.
Battery life is atrocious! It takes several hours to charge the battery only to get 15-25 minutes of use. I've already bought 3 additional batteries and it's ridiculous that I can blow through all 4 in a little over an hour. I'm really hoping that Atomos does some major optimizations on software to improve battery life.
I was really considering returning this device, personally this should have been priced at no more than $1,300. Especially, since it feels so Beta. What Atomos should have done is offered an invite system to have several people buy them at a discounted price first to Beta test and work out all of the bugs. I'm going to keep it for obvious reasons, I want 4K out of my A7S, I know there are other options like the Odyssey but really like the software and display. Hoping to see the Atomos Shogun V2 which I'm sure will be way better!
The case and packaging are outstanding, and the unit is very simple to use.
Love the clarity and functionality of the monitor. I'm ultimately getting great looking footage in ProRes from my A7S. Have taken the Shogun out on a few shoots now and have noticed a few downsides.
First things first, ditch that Atomos battery charger immediately. For a moment it had me thinking I had a busted monitor... but it turns out the charger just didn't work. Not for the battery that came with the monitor, or the other batteries I used with it. I really hope they figure out that situation as I'm finding out with some research that I'm not the only one this has happened to.
Once I was able to get a few charged batteries, I realized just how quickly the monitor drains them. I normally wouldn't complain about something like this, as I understand the work the monitor and recorder is doing requires a lot of power. But it is bad. I don't have exact numbers and statistics for you, because I was going back and forth between 1080p/60fps to 4K/24fps... But I can tell you four fully charged batteries (Sony NP-F570 and Atomos) was not enough to get me through a few hour shoot. I'm not recording the whole time either in those few hours. One of those batteries was also the beefiest Sony F-570 that could not have lasted for more than 30 minutes of recording. This makes the recorder a real challenge to deal with when recording anything that won't allow you to have it plugged in.
Next is the build quality of the monitor itself. My power button has gotten jammed in a couple of times already. I don't feel like I'm pressing it too hard or anything like that, it just feels a little cheap to me. When that has happened, it's kind of scary. The monitor puts up an error message on the screen, while I have a power button that is half way inside the monitor, crooked. With some light pressure on the button, I was able to quickly get out of the situation both times, and my power button feels completely functional at the moment. But while on shoots, this is the last thing I want to worry about.
All in all, I like having it. With the A7S I NEED it to record 4k, until l a better version is released... so this is what I'll be working with. Just know that when adding this to your rig, you are also most likely going to be adding some stress to your shoot, and handful more NP-F570 batteries to your shopping cart.
