Re: ninja 2 and GH2

William - In my view, there aren't a lot of people doing this because they are making this 'return on investment' calculation: "Do I hack my camera to record to a costly external recorder - or do I hack my camera, record at high internal bitrates and get the same or better quality for a lot less money?"

For some people, who already have the external recorder, it might be worth it. But for most of us, the firmware hacks are much more practical.

And I think you do need a PC to run the AviSynth solution, unless you're a software wizard and can run it on a Mac using Wine and VirtualDub. Too complicated for me :-)

Re: ninja 2 and GH2

The ability to record in the camera and an external recorder simultaneously would be great but as I am learning, probably not easily accomplished with the GH2. The cadence strangeness is easy to see on the 24p HDMI output just by panning the camera. The HDMI monitor I use accepts the signal without a problem so whatever is introducing the frame holds is prior to the final generation of the signal. The holds also don't seem to be regular but perhaps there is a pattern or a frame code generated that an enterprising programmer could elucidate and use in creating a ProRes file frame rate converter that I would gladly pay for. At this point I am going to test the free 44Mbit "Vanilla" hack and save $1000 plus dollars over the Atmos Ninja.

Re: ninja 2 and GH2

This may be true in the USA about Ninja, HDMI and GH2 problems - but how about Europe and PAL etc.? Any different here? Thanks, Hugh
