Hi,
I'm about to have my nanoflash recorder shipped to me and it has HDMI out. Once I receive it, I will probably order a DP1. How is the connector HDMI cable's connector secured to the DP1 so that it does not come out easily? Or is it a push on/pull off arrangement?
Thanks very much.

Good afternoon,

First, David the hdmi is simply push in and out type.


I have had my small hd sense the first shipment. I have found it has improved my images rather dramaticly, particularly in the focus department and framing.

I shoot with a canon xlh1. I usually use the fu1000 which means I have to use a component cable the the dp1. The direct link that runs to the same socket the fu1000 attaches through is my favorite. If I do not need the view finder I just unplug the fu 1000 (saving wear and tear on it too) and use the supplied cable that came with the camera.

I can also put the original view finder back on, it plugs into the top socket and the dp1 into the lower socket.

Ideally I would like a small 9 inch component cable. I hate the idea pf cutting my long cable at 50 bucks a cable!!!

I have two batteries and for almost all my shooting that has been enough. I plan to buy two more. I love the fact that they are small and non obtrusive. Great on the steady cam!

I would like to be able to run it to a 12 small car battery, not sure how to tackle that one yet but plan to do that before next spring when I live in a blind. Open to ideas!!

I personally have had no quibbles about blocking or bands.

I have my presets on the xlh1 that give me the color I desire so I do not really use the camera for making corrections to the image.

I set it up and had my pany plasma hooked up to and the colors were very faithful to the point I would be confident to make an adjustment if necessary. I am positive I would be close enough to finalize in post if needed. I have not had to do that in any of my shooting sense the first of June.

In my opinion low light and HD just do not really go together with anything less than 1/2 inch chips. In low light I prefer my SD camera. So in this regard I have no complaints about noise or such.

I can imagine 90% of users of this lcd would find it a real asset.


thanks again Dale and Crew!!

Quick clarification: does the DP1 come with an arm that can be attached to rails? If not, can anyone recommend a good one for use with the DP1?

Sean, no arm. I have been researching arms and there are a few manufacturers such as Noga, Cine-Arm & Zacuto to name a few. Articulating arms in various lengths to be specific. You can even buy quick release mounts & yes, you can get clamps to attach to rails, handles and tripod legs.
