    Tested the VA with a 1080 24 PSF signal via SDI from my Panny AF100 camera, the VA recorded the PSF feed as a 1080p24 signal, removing the PSF interlace pull down. So this appears to work as it should.

    Also tested time code run record triggering with AF100, works as it should, start/stop recording on the AF100, starts and stops the Video Assist record mode

    Hey Denny, would you have any sample footage you'd be able to share comparing the AF100 from the camera and from the VA? We have a couple of old HVX200s that we've been using until the URSA Mini comes out and I'm wondering if it'd be worth it.

    The main difference from internal footage on the AF 100 and external recordings, are that you,have a full 4.2.2 color space image for and A less compressed image with ProRes, which results in less banding and better highlight control. There,has been some interesting discussions on external recordings vs internal on the AF100 forum at dxUser.com.

    I do not post footage on forums. But, send me a PM with your email, and I will try to get you some footage samples.
    Cheers

    If you want to know how the AF100 looks with an external recorder, check out The Raid: Redemption. Most of it was shot with that setup.

    You had me at less banding and better highlight control. Haha! After going from HDSLRs (even if H.264) and digital cinema cameras back to fixed lens 3CCD cameras I forgot what kind of limitations the Pannys have.

    Definitely recommend EVSOnline, called them a few hours ago and they packaged up my Video Assist and shipped it my way! Great service, Tommy is the man.

    I just ordered one from Adorama who allegedly has them in stock as does Core Microsystems. On a side note, does anyone have any idea if there is such an animal as Sony f970 to Canon Lp E6 adapter. I've got at least four other devices that use the Sony Batteries.
