As we know 4:2:2 is limited to 30p but with the new recorder from Atamos we can record 4:2:2 at 60p ProRes!

The only problem is I can not find any housing for the recorder.

My option is a Canon 1DX Mark II at 3 times the cost to get into camera and housing along with a difficult to use codec out of camera increases my work flow difficulties.

Recorders should become much more popular as the storage options for video footage are limited. If you count how many 128gb SD cards would be needed for long underwater footage a recorded becomes much less expensive and has so many extras that you get at a decent price.

I'd like to find some manufacturer that is going to support the inferno. This thing has been out since March 2017 and we are bound to have many mire cameras coming down the pike at 4k 60p this year, so there is going to be a demand for these housings. 8f6884de7e3e344f5e848ffffa28ee9f.jpgc912fbed218724206ac238f24c49aa12.jpg

I recently researched monitors for my GH 5. While the Ninja Inferno was my first thought by the time I factored in the cost of housing and mounting hardware I couldn't justify the price for what you gain over GH5 internal recoding.

Perhaps I will revise this opinion in the future and upgrade to Inferno in Nauticam for the reasona you mention. But for now have opted for a Small HD monitor.

Apparently the Nauticam housing for the Shogun also works for the Inferno

Yeah the newer Inferno and Flame monitors are actually larger than the original Shogun, so don't fit.

 

But I agree, they probably aren't worth the money just to obtain the 4K 60p @ 10bit.

 

Its a fantastic monitor, yes and there maybe an increase image quality (very slight - to none existent) - but it makes your rig massive. I struggle with some boats with mine, as to where to put it.

 

If I didn't have it for the GH4, where there is a good trade off for better image quality and bulk, i think recording internally and using SmallHD type screen would be a better option, but I have it, so not going to waste it - and yes SSDs are cheaper than the V90 cards at the moment, so that saves me from recording internally.

The units externally and operationally are exactly the same, so the Inferno works in this housing

I have both a Flame and an Inferno.
Apart from the color of the corners and the 4K@60 ability (due to having HDMI2.0a. (And the badge !) you can’t tell them apart.

Crazy how the monitor is just 600$ but the housing for it is over 4K, would have loved one for my gh4 but so not worth the price imo.
