Canon Rebel T3i with Samurai?

Good evening, all.

I have a question from the sunny climes of California:

My Canon T3i has an HDMI output. Can anyone tell me if the Samurai will record that signal? Would I be able to record to a better codec or to a higher resolution and color-space on a Samurai than I am currently obtaining - recording to the internal T3i cards?

I know that the Samurai can record ProRes 422 HQ, but I don't know what the T3i puts out through it's HDMI port.

Any advice would be welcome.

Thank you,

Harry.

Re: Canon Rebel T3i with Samurai?

Firstly it would have to be a Ninja rather than a Samurai as the Ninja records HDMI. The Samurai would require an HDMI to SDI adaptor. Secondly you should look at this page from the Atomos website and check the output from your camera on a monitor.

H1 - Does Ninja range work with DSLR cameras? - ATOMOS

If your camera gives a clean feed ie without overlays and doesn't crop the image too much it may be worth doing. Otherwise stick with the on-board stuff.

The Pro-res codec is part of the recorder, the video coming out of the HDMI from your camera is uncompressed.

Be aware that if you record to the sd card at the same time the output via the hdmi is downsized I think to sd.
