Back in 2012, on-camera monitor specialists SmallHD released an innovative product for the Canon 5D mark ii. The HDMI port protector was a brilliant, simple design; it solved a massive headache I (like many other filmmakers) was having whilst operating my DSLR with an on-board monitor. Now, they’ve doing it again, for the more current 5D mark iii....
Early this year, Atomos released the Connect SDI/HDMI convertor. It’s a portable convertor that comes in two flavours – the Connect H2S (converts HDMI to SDI) and the Connect S2H (converts SDI to HDMI). It’s a fantastic little device, and has been somewhat overlooked since its release earlier in the summer.
Now, there are a few products out there that perform the conversion task, but the majority are not portable. Despite being small devices, most require AC power. This immediately bumps the Atomos Connect towards the top of the list for fieldwork. But Atomos didn’t simply just add a battery; this is a well-designed bit of kit that’s made to fit seamlessly into any professional workflow that requires this conversion....
The firmware update for the Canon 5D Mark III scheduled for April 30 has just been leaked by an unknown source. It enables the camera to output clean HDMI, and according to Canon “HDMI Output makes possible the recording of high-definition uncompressed video data (YCbCr 4:2:2, 8 bit) from the EOS 5D Mark III to an external recorder via the camera’s HDMI terminal”....
Atomos updates the Samurai, their famous SDI harddisk recorder, and adds a high quality 720p lcd screen on top making it a true solution as a monitor / disk recorder combination.
We have checked out the Atomos products several times in the past as they offer an affordable solution to get more quality out of our large sensor cameras. These devices allow you to record the live hdmi or SDI feed from your camera directly into a high quality format, widely used Apple ProRes among others. ...

Wireless on-set video monitors, sometimes referred to as “Watchman”, are often seen on film sets with the director or other staff members who need to see what the camera sees at any time during the shoot. If you’ve got an indie production you might be in the business to rent these things from time to time and you might know they are expensive. Read on to see the DIY instruction: ...
Dale Backus from smallHD recently showed us their new $3000 oled field monitor, the DP7. It didn’t make us happy to hear that we’d have to wait until next year to get some new tech in the low end segment.
If you’re just looking for a good monitor though the DP6 is still one of the most famous devices out there. With 1280×800 and lots of positive reviews it has won the attention of many...
Is it usable? That’s an important question. Initial testing was done with an Atomos Ninja 1 and the footage had some issues. The signal is clean, but further testing has to be done to see if the 650D’s signal is actually usable for external recording.
Canon & Atomos have been contacted to make sure they can work out any issues here. We’ve seen a similar situation before when the Nikon D800 & Atomos Ninja combination posed some challenges that have now been resolved. A source of the problem could also be the fact that the camera used was a beta model.
What does it mean? Up until this day all Canon HDSLR cameras had overlays within the hdmi signal that could not be removed making an external recording impossible. The signal coming from the beta Canon T4i / 650D tested is clean.
In theory having a clean signal means that you can record the video feed to an external device like the Atomos Ninja and get a ready to edit, quality encoded Apple ProRes file.
The signal from the beta 650D seems to be routed to the hdmi port before it is being compressed. There are definitely less compression artifacts in the footage recorded on the Ninja than in the h.264 internally compressed files.
The Canon Rebel T4i / 650D kit with the 18-55 STM lens is still in stock at B&H. If any of you can do further testing please let us know the details. ...
