Will be using a SD pilot rig with a C300 and Nanoflash setup. I don't believe C300 has an SD monitoring output but was wondering if anyone is familiar if the Nanoflash can downconvert an HD signal for SD monitoring (while still recording to HD). Otherwise I think I will be foreced to get a HD to SD downconverter or just buy an HD monitor and replace the standard SD Marshall.

Thanks in advance!

Nanoflash does not downconvert.

At this stage it seems like the smart money would be to buy an HD monitor.

The Canon C300 has a SD video output, no need for a downconverter to use it with your SD monitor.
You have to go into the camera's settings to get it from the "SYNC OUT" BNC port.

Here's the part about it in the camera's manual :

Good to know but i'm afraid we will be shooting in 24p so not an option.

24p should actually be 23.976fps

Yes, that's true. I have a feeling thats what the manual is reffering too. I doubt the C300 records non standard NTSC frame rates.

Canon C300 offers both 24p and 23.98 frame rates. Unless your project is intended for projection, it should be at 23.98 and thus the downconverter would work.
