Red, Unless you’re looking



Unless you’re looking to record to tape, there are few if any consumer grade cameras using solid-state recording that have analog inputs. You’re best bet is to stick with tape based cameras or a tape based portable video recorder. As shooter mentioned, the thermal footage won’t be HD anyway unless you shot the footage with an HD capable IR camera. Your XL2 will be just fine and if need be, the footage can be put into an HD timeline depending on what software you edit with. Your XL2 has more than enough analog connections to get you going.

Be advised, your post concerning using thermal imaging is throwing up red flags. Though there are plenty of creative and industrial uses, these days someone looking to use thermal imaging is up to no good. Don’t be surprised if your boss at the studio you work at gets a call about this.
