Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

What would you guys suggest for HDMI to SDI adapters that would be portable, possibly even on camera, definitely battery powered.

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

i use these cheap ebay SDI/HDMI converter with a plate adapter for a sony NP-Fxx battery.
works fine for hours.
Take care to choose the right converter since they look the same (hdmi-->sdi or sdi-->hdmi)

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

I've been using a Blackmagic SDI - HDMI mini converter on camera, but they also have an HDMI - SDI version.

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

Atomos makes a little one that's powered by Sony NP series batts. Actually they make 2 for the 2 directions HDMI/SDI. About $100 IIRC.

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

The Atomos Connect converters run $195 and use Sony-type camcorder batteries.

Black Magic now offers "Micro" converters for HDMI > SDI and vice-versa, $85 each. They have a micro USB port for power, so one can use any of those inexpensive battery packs meant for recharging cell phones. AC adapter included.

Thanks

Jeff

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

I figured out this was a way to mount my Atomos Connect to my Canon XF 300. The good news that I discovered yesterday, is that same flat screw you see (that I cut short with a saw) screws into my DSLR setup

Albiet my Atomos/setup is not working at the moment, at least it's pretty on the setup. :}

Re: Small battery powered HDMI to SDI adapter

The Feelworld (Seetec) converters also have a Sony NP battery plate built in.

Nice construction includes 1/4-20 mounting holes.
