Comments about Atomos Samurai 10-Bit HD/SD-SDI Field Recorder Monitor and Playback & Playout Device:
The Samaurai is by far the best solution for 10 bit, 4.2.2 recording. The ability to monitor and playback footage is what puts it on top.We are using the unit with a Panasonic AG F100's. Workflow is direct and the kit provides all the necessary connectivity. It would be sweet to have a Thunderbolt port on the drive caddy, however the firewire 800 connection provides quick transfers. Be sure to do the software upgrades right out of the box. I'd also suggest getting both SSD and spinning 2.5" drives. we found the HDMI connection to be problematic on other units. HD-SDI input is a must have. Great Product!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Semi-pro Videographer
This is easy to use and output to computer in ProRes format is straightforward. The image quality is excellent. With the 422 format, compositing works well. Cumbersome to use without a tripod for camera.
