In Topic: Sony A7s 4k with Atomos Shogun in a prototype housing

Hi dear all,

As far as I concern with Shogun now, is the battery life. I did search the Atomos forum and one of the link come up with the reply from Atomos :

"The Shogun's final power draw ended up being more significant that originally expected. This is why you're getting shorter than expected battery life, and we're currently looking into ways we can solve this for current and future customers. Keep an eye out for updates. The charger should go to green-red after about 5 hours of charging. It sounds like yours is not behaving normally and I'd like to send you a replacement. Please send me your address and we'll get one out to you.".

I am doing some test with the Atomos charger and 3rd party dual battery charger, see if there is any different with the battery life ended up.

But it is so annoying with the low battery warning started just 15 minutes after start recording, then the battery can run for another 30-45 minutes.

For land use, you simply swap another battery, but for underwater use, this is just make me mad.

I just wish Nauticam can see this problem and give us a bigger battery room for NP970 to install.


Lastly, I am so lucky to buy the 512G Transcend SSD, that the SSD do not run, unless you switch the Shogun on first, before you insert the master caddy.

Actually this is the known issue for Shogun already, but I don't see that on their SSD check list before I brought the SSD.

Wait for the update, or buy another SSD instead !!!!! Poor me.
