Re: HyperDeck Shuttle from Blackmagic Design

Hi Kristian,
thanks for the tips.
Which is exactly the voltage range the shuttle will tolerate?
It needs 12V regulated or it's a friendly 11-16V or 5-16V?
Is the corsair force ssd ok? It 220MB/sec+ in read and writing! ;)
Which solution you adopted for mounting it on camera or rods? Has it 1/4 20 or 3/8 16 holes for mounting?
Or you will sell it with a bracket?
Have you some pics of the shuttle mounted to share? ;)

Re: Hyperdeck: uncompressed w/5DMII?

hi all,

I was just reading up on the BlackMagic Hyperdeck recorder. I have the Sony FX-7 Video camera. I wonder if it will work with this camera? There are a few things I don't understand about what the info/says about this device. They talk about that this unit can use "low cost" SSDs? I was not familuar with low cost SSDs. I thought that all SSDs were expensive. I have read that Seagate is making a Hybrid SSD 500GB for about $130-150 USD. Would this work and if yes this is not to expensive.

Also, what exactly is the point for using compressed video like on a P2 card? I can just use my DV tapes if I want compressed video. Are P2 card less compressed than on my DV tapes? I would think the purpose of a device like this is to get away from compressed video and not to have to import the footage into my computer, of course.

I just wondered how this product and the Nija are able to record uncompressed HD on a single HDD? The Ninja is supposed to be able to use standard low cost 7200 RPM drives. When I need at least 5-7 7200RPM disk RAID to capture uncompressed HD to my computer. I am missing something i am sure. Because if someone has found a way to capture uncompressed HD on a single drive why cant they apply this technology to a computer?

Impressive device.

Re: HyperDeck Shuttle from Blackmagic Design

Hi John,

If you're shooting with an FX-7 (as I am myself), then you're probably not doing the kind of work that really warrants uncompressed video, like national broadcast TV spots. I have no experience yet with the HyperDeck Shuttle, but have used the Ninja on a few jobs and it works well with the HDMI out of HDV cameras, and eliminates the compression blocks seen in HDV footage.

To clarify, the Ninja does NOT record uncompressed video - it records to the Apple ProRes codec in your choice of LT, 422, or HQ quality modes. It's probably confusing because Ninja says it "records the uncompressed signal out of your camera", meaning the HDMI coming out of the camera is an uncompressed signal. ProRes is however compressed, though it is said to be "visually lossless".

I've shot stage events with the Ninja running several hours and used an inexpensive 500GB laptop drive ($79) and it performed perfectly. The Shuttle is obviously not meant for long-form recording of this type, really comparing apples and oranges. A 7200rpm laptop drive in the Ninja has no trouble capturing a single stream of ProRes.
