On the left of the screen is a power icon. Tap and hold this button for 4 seconds to shut down the unit.
Tap to Lock/Unlock
This image provides information on how to lock and unlock the display of your SHOGUN CONNECT.
When a battery is attached to your SHOGUN CONNECT, the Battery icon on the Power menu screen indicates the remaining power in the attached battery. The numerical figure above the battery icon will indicate the remaining power in volts whilst the shading inside the battery icon provides a visual indication of the current power level.
SHOGUN CONNECT uses standard NP-F/L-Series compatible batteries.
The power plug icon represents DC power.
Power Priority Mode
This setting allows you to select which power source to use when you have both DC power and a battery attached to your SHOGUN CONNECT. Tap Power Priority Mode to toggle between the following options:
DC : When DC (Power plug icon) is selected, the plug icon will be white.
Battery : When Battery is selected, shading inside the battery icon will be green.
Manual: In Manual mode, you can manually select which power source to prioritize by tapping on either the battery or power plug icon.
These settings provide manual controls for the fan inside your SHOGUN CONNECT. This means that the fan can be set to a low speed, so that it’s whisper quiet during a take and then boosted using Turbo mode to cool the system when it is no longer recording.
Allows you to set the cooling mode. Tap to cycle through the options:
Low: Approximately 20% quieter fan during recording, but the record duration may be limited.
Medium: Approximately 10% quieter fan, while maintaining balance between lower fan noise and extended record duration.
Auto: Uses default fan operation. Optimized for uninterrupted recording.
While the fan modes will allow for quieter operation with shorter run times in ambient temperatures below 25 °C/77 °F, it is advisable that you conduct your own tests for the environmental conditions and rig setup.
Turbo Cool (On/Off)
Turning this mode on will enable boosted fan operation when the recording is stopped. Using this in combination with Low fan mode helps maintain a good balance with record durations. Tap the switch to toggle the Turbo Cool mode on or off.
Dim Display (On/Off)
Enabling this will dim the display brightness during takes to help with cooling. It also helps maximize record times in Low fan mode. Tap to toggle the Dim Display mode on or off.
Whilst using the Dim Display setting, the display brightness controller will allow for temporary adjustments in the screen's brightness but will default back to the level set by Dim Display options (approx 30%).
When your Ninja gets close to peak operating temperature, record times may be reduced, and fan speeds will increase. Using a combination of Low fan mode with Turbo Fan and Dim Display gives you the best balance of continuous record time and quiet operation.
