Popularity for the large sensor camera format has boomed over the last few years. Ever since release of the Canon 5D mark II nearly 5 years ago, filmmakers were granted access to systems with acute control of depth of field, giving them affordable tools to produce stunning images reminiscent of 35mm film.
We’ve seen this affect many industries; large sensor acquisition is now the standard for wedding videos, It’s incredibly popular with corporate and advertising and it’s presence within broadcast and documentaries is fast growing....

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.
