If you really want to reco


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.
