Is the Nanoflash for me

Is the Nano for me.
I shoot a lot of HD and SD footage on my Sony PDW F350 and I also own and shoot on my Sony EX1,
I edit mainly in a SD FCP timeline.
What benefit for me would the Nano be if I used this with my F350 in SD 16:9 mode going out to DVD?

I know the benefits with HD but I'm after some SD advice.

Thanks

The advantages are... One, 50Mbit 4:2:2 color. That is a biggie having broadcast compliant footage and material that can be seriously yanked in the grading (color correction) process. Second, footage that does not require to be rewrapped through a Sony Utility to be usable in FCP. Drag into the timeline and go. Of course, that goes for both SD and HD footage on your nanoFlash. Third, redundant recording in case things go south or sideways in with your "in-camera" media.

There are many other reasons but these are directly the most beneficial in my view.

In SD with the NANO you achieve a DigiBeta like quality.

I'm starting to turn more towards the Nano but like with all things I need more answers.
I have looked around on this site here but looking for more

These are some I would like more knowledge on.

I have a Sony F350 and a Sony EX1

Do I record only to the Nano or is this a dual setup with recording to both Nano and disc (F350) and SDHC card EX1.
Are there advantages to just recording to Nano.
How do I capture the recording from the Nano only.

What cables do I need to connect this all up.

This sounds great to me and rather than upgrading to the expensive Sony F800 in my case, I can still hack away with my F350 for a while yet but producing 4-2-2 and 50 to 100 mbps

Thanks

Dear Simon,

It is your choice, you can record only to the nanoFlash, or to both the camera and to the nanoFlash.

If you choose to record only to the nanoFlash, we recommed one of our remote control with tally light cables, with or without timecode input.

If you record in camera, and use Record Run timecode, then the nanoFlash can record whenever the camera records.

You will need an HD-SDI cable.

If you want to use a D-Tap or P-Tap to power the nanoFlash, then you will need an appropriate power cable.

A Hotshoe ball mount is nice to mount the nanoFlash.
