I just got a promo for this HD/SD recorder, has anyone heard about it or used it yet?

It's actually already pretty common on set. There are many ops using the nano flash. I only used its bigger brother the XDR which is a pretty nice and stable HDSDI flash recorder. I was using it in combo with the Iconix HD lipstick camera for a miniature shot.

Any more details?

Price?

Is it easy to start and stop - could you wire in a remote? Is it easy find the last clip and playback?

Is it practical for Steadicam?


Cheers

$3K-ish, it has a trigger input. Standard def input only in the form of SD-SDI. A very nice recorder but overkill for most ops who are looking for playback or capturing footage for a reel. If you could use the unit for other things as well, it could be worth it. I'll buy one when someone (Tramm?) figures out how to get the Canon DSLR's to output full HD during capture.

Thanks Charles,

As far as only recording in SD-SDi is seems to claim otherwise

Digital I/O: HD/SD-SDI and HDMI: 1080i, 1080p, 1080psf, 720p, 480/576i

is it possible that that system has been improved since you last looked at it or am I just reading the specs wrong?

I think he was saying that the only way to get SD into the system was with SDI. Not that it wouldn't do HD.

I think that was what I was saying also. I should have phrased it better.
