From what it looks like, the BlackMagic Hyperdeck Shuttle 2 software was updated this morning to now include compression through Apple ProRes HQ. You update the device with their software, and can select recording formats (also including Avid DNxHD 220 Mb/s).

When I first had a Hyperdeck Shuttle, a limiting factor I knew going into the purchase was the recording duration. I had a 256GB SSD bought specifically for the Shuttle, but I got a small fraction of recording time (I think maybe 25 minutes? I can't remember). The onboard battery was OK, and the device was stupidsimple to use, but with limited recording time and no deletion capability, I quickly decided it wasn't right for me.

Well, now the $345 device can record Apple ProRes HQ. My 256GB SSD drive in my Atomos Samurai gives me about 90 minutes of recording time on Apple PR HQ, so I'm assuming the Shuttle 2 will do the same. Now, the price tag is INCREDIBLY attractive. Likewise, the Shuttle 2 also accepts record trigger over HD-SDI, so if that functions properly, it becomes an attractive alternative to the Atomos Samurai at $1600.


Shuttle 2 owners can head over to support to download the software.
