DV / Firewire recorder?
I’m trying to get some life out of our old Canon XLH1… or more accurately, I’d say “resurrect it,” as it has been stored for several years now. It was a great camera in its day… and would come in handy when I have the occasional need for a more ENG-style camera (shoulder mount, nice zoom lens, etc.). I usually shoot with a more cinematic setup (C300 and primes), but occasionally there are jobs that would benefit from the H1.
I don’t want to shoot tape though… and even if I did, I can’t. The tape deck on the camera is dead (and has already been replaced twice… we used it a lot). I just want to record the firewire signal to an on-board recorder.
Those kinds of recorders used to be plentiful, but in this day and age they don’t seem to exist anymore. I’ve been meaning to buy the one I still knew of (from Datavideo) for a while, and just when I went to go buy it minutes ago, B&H shows it to be discontinued. Grrrrr.
Anyone know of any other small on-board recorders that will take in an HDV/DV/Firewire feed?
