Earlier today Atomos announced a new 5-inch monitor called Shinobi. This new model is very similar to the Ninja V which was introduced last year but without the recorder aspect and with a significantly reduced part.
For users who have no need for a recorder or need a secondary monitor to complement their existing recorder, the Shinobi is an interesting option. It offers the same high brightness (1000 cd/m²) as the Ninja V but with a simpler, lighter body and significantly reduced cost without losing all the advanced display functionality/usability.
Above you can see Wex Photographic’s look at the new Shinobi monitor. Do note that the new monitor does not have the Ninja V accessory port it also has just an HDMI input and no HDMI output like the Ninja V (so you can’t chain another monitor to this one).
