Please read the forum archives to see what people have been using. Then do some comprehensive research about whats new and report to us all any new recorders you have found.

There are so many new little gadgets and widgets out there I doubt anyone can keep up. Any threads on here will be months old. You might find something cool.

FYI I have two Nnovia A2D's for sale that I was going to build into new cases for onboard recording. DV quality (not MPEG4), BNC ins and outs, GPI trigger and RS232 control available. One has been upgraded to a solid state drive. In the existing cases they weigh 1 lb and are bulky, although one of them has Gold Mounts top and bottom so it can be sandwiched between a battery. I was going to pull the boards and build into new Delrin boxes which would have dropped the weight in half--ended up going with the $3K nanoFlash unit.

If anyone is interested, these are $500 each. I'll be posting a separate "for sale" item later.

Hey Richie,

Good to finally see you on the forums... how was the Masters this year?

Anyway, this is actually a topic that I was about to revisit and that would be has anyone found any HD quality solutions that would work for us... under $3K?

Saw this on gizmodo today. Lots of recording settings and has good water/dust/shock resistance.

The lens has the sensor build into it. I've emailed the company to find out what if any external signals the system will take.

One button recording on SD cards in a weatherproof kit with real video formats and its under $700-.

looks interesting...but it's almost the same weight and dimensions as an hc-90 battery.

the vio-pov thingy looks cool too.

I have always wanted an ob recorder but now that we are hd almost all the time...when the village needs a playback, they are usually doing so before I even make it back to the stand or do it on the camera once I dock.

looks good I had one of these strapped to me when on my bike a year or two back, or at least a pov set-up that looked very similar, seemed rugged enough, guessing you might need a custom cable knocked up though if that is something proprietary, although it looks like it could just be a hd-sdi cable....

Hi Jon have you heard anything back yet?

If not I was thinking of doing the same myself to see what the flexibility of this unit is.

Cheers

I looked into this system (or its predecessor) a year or two ago. As I recall the camera cable was proprietary and some of the signal processing was going on in the recorder, so chopping cables and feeding HD-SDI wasn't a possibility.

I've emailed the company several times back and forth.

Charles is correct from what the SALES guy has told me so far.

They claim to use a proprietary plug and their own digital signal from camera to dvr.

Trying to get a hold of a tech over there. I would find it odd for a small company to actually create their own video standard.

So I'm still holding out hope. A low power consuming, one button recording and one button tagging of places in a sequence with the various recording options.

I've also stressed to them that if they made an adapter to input your own video that they could stand to sell a few hundred units a year.
