Atomos Lockdown Safari Competition - Get creative at home and win a Shogun 7

Atomos Lockdown Safari Competition - Get creative at home and win a Shogun 7

With much of the world in lockdown this spring, few of us are lucky enough to get out into the wild - so we're encouraging our users to stay creative in their homes, or wherever they may be, exploring the nature around them. The backyard might not be the first choice for filming wildlife, but we want to see what they can capture there. Shot over the Easter weekend in the small garden of a London home by Atomos staff member Dan Chung, our example video shows that life and creative potential is nearby.

It was shot entirely in Apple ProRes RAW in 4K at 100fps using the Atomos Shogun 7 HDR monitor-recorder and an old, yet still highly capable, second-hand Sony FS700R cinema camera. The lens was a Sigma 180mm f3.5 Macro on a Metabones EF-E mount adapter. The entire setup (apart from the tripod) was purchased for around $3500 USD.

We’re looking for the best wildlife footage users can capture without breaking any government social distancing rules – in their own garden, on their balcony, or even inside their apartment. As an incentive we'll be giving away a Shogun 7 HDR monitor-recorder-
switcher to one lucky entrant whose work is deemed to be the most creative by Atomos and wildlife cinematographer Ben Cherry.
