Pix is pretty sweet and Sound Devices gear is the Mercedes of the market in terms of build quality and finish- but it's worth demoing both to see which one you prefer.

yes besides it has hdmi output,down hardware converter but the downside is:

Considering that with the pix you don't need an external audio recoreder nor dual eyes the proce difference is negligible except that Frame rate is limited and does not use regular hd just cards and ssd.

Well, the Ninja records audio as well - through embedded HDMI and through it's analogue stereo input. It's line level, though.

And don't forget the price difference!

Yes I am aware of the price difference. But I understand that the GH2 does not output sound through hdmi. I think that the ninja is a great value but the other offers quite a a few extras that seem hard to ignore.

If video is your destination, and you don't have to fool with up/down/cross conversion, Atomos is a great deal.

That being said, I just completed a job where the folks fed me a 1080i HDMI feed at 29.97 that I recorded at 1280x720P at 23.98 to match the speaker's thin-raster camera. 220i did the conversion on the fly. Captured the audio via XLR to the Pix 220i. Sounded great. The two sources matched resolution and frame rate, greatly simplifying the post work. Sweet.

If audio is important to your productions, get a Sound Devices mixer or recorder, no matter what the video capture system. Built like a tank, with superior audio capability. That's a given.

And then there's the price, as was mentioned previously. Both have a production sweet spot that's amazing.

I'm just amazed at the capacity of the gizmos out there!
