XL H1s recoording options?

I'm several years behind on this topic and wonder what might currently be the best solution/s for recording with an XL H1s without having to convert/transfer from Mini HDV tape?

The XL-H1 has an HD-SDI output, so any number of external recorders would work. From the cheap Blackmagic Video Assist up to the Video Devices Pix E7. Basically anything that can take an HD-SDI input can record from your camera.

Re: XL H1s recoording options?

I used a NanoFlash recorder, now a bit out of date, which recorded quite decent , if large, 1080 25p files.

I triggered the Nano "direct" via a separate "Hawkswood" trigger cable. That way no need to trouble the XLH1 tape mechanism.

Thanks, Ron and Edward.

I was looking at the Nano Flash X years ago but dropped the subject and have become interested again.

My impression is that few are still wrestling with tape as I am.

Sounds like, look at various external recorders, compare reviews and take it from there.

Chris, I have an Atomos Samurai Blade listed on the classifieds page. It would be a good fit for your XLH1s.

I'm using Blackmagic video assist on three xlh1's via sdi and am very happy with the result.
