Some readers may remember a piece RedSharkNews published in 2013 detailing the camera rig I built up from parts collected from all over the world. In keeping with this theme, I recently purchased an Atomos Ninja Star portable ProRes recorder to give my three year-old Sony HD ‘hybrid’ a new lease of life.
Sony's tiny 4K HandyCam supports a full 4K HDMI output that should be compatible with the upcoming Atomos Shogun 4K recorder - months before the A7S
While it's tempting to think that with the Magic Lantern EOS raw hack out in the open that normal, compressed video will never be good enough again, that's taking far too strict a line on it. The fact is that the conventional video output from cameras like the EOS 5D MK III is very good indeed with the exception of certain well-known issues like moire and rolling shutter
This is a camera that changes everything in its market sector: 4K for less than 1,000 USD
This new device from Atomos is what DSLR users have been waiting for - and its half the price we expected!
