Hi everyone


Curious what you all recommend and prefer as a recorder on the steadicam these days, and where you like to mount it. Pictures welcome!

Thinking about a Transvideo Starlite for recorder/low-mode monitor under MDR, or maybe a cheaper Atomos recorder. Or maybe there's something new out there?

I  use a blackmagic video assist (seven inch) as return and use a transvideo for the sled monitor. the blackmagic records 4k.


 I have the tiny starlite that you mentioned. if i know there is a possibility on shooting low mode I will mount up the starlite so its already  "under there" so it's one less thing I have to worry about.

Ive got the Atomos Shogun Flame! Its great! 1500 nits and doubles for a backup Steadicam monitor for studio work (its pretty reflective). Absolutely worth the extra cash over the BlackMagic!
