4K and HD Record Capabilities

Bypass your camera’s internal compression and record UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) video to Apple ProRes over HDMI or 12G-SDI at 23.98, 24, 25, 29.97, or 30 fps. The 4K-capable HDMI input makes the Shogun particularly useful for recording 4K output signals from cameras such as the Sony A7S and Panasonic GH4.

1080p up to 120 fps  Record up to 120 fps in Full HD (1920 x 1080) for high-resolution slow-motion shots.

10-Bit 4:2:2 Recording Record in 4:2:2 Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD or DNxHR formats from your camera’s uncompressed SDI or HDMI output, bypassing a round of internal compression and data loss.

Uncompressed Cinema DNG Raw 4K video is also supported from capable cameras.
