      I want to do direct recording to a computer. the cam doesn’t need onboard storage, sound, or power. the key is to make the unit as small as possible. I’ve seen some broadcast grade stuff but it is all $10K and up.

      Price range under $3K

      I have done my own research and have come up bust, that’s why I’m asking for help.

      I dont think you’re going to find a studio camera for under $3k dude.

      If you really want to record directly from camera to computer, you’ll have to throw down some money for computer hardware too.

      First you’d need a camera with HD-SDI.

      Then, if you have a mac pro, you’ll need a AJA Kona3 card. If you have a macbook pro, you’ll need either AJA ioHD or the Matrox MXO2 along with an express slot adapter. Whether you have a mac pro or macbook pro, I think you also need a RAID if you want to record uncompressed video. If you want to convert it to Apple ProRes422 HQ on the capture, I think firewire800 will suffice.
