Not surprising, seeing as it's down one cable!

Still an amazing upgrade. My PIX240 was good to start with but has been totally transformed in the first year I've been using it. The timecode overlay is brilliant for the work I do and the ability to have record confirmation in a connected viewfinder on the F3 makes life so much easier!

Matt,

Will current qualified SSD's also work with ProRes 4444?
