We do a lot of sports productions and usually run a small consumer clock camera outputting composite sd to provide the bug operator with a constant view of the scoreboard. The problem we're running into is that these cameras are not particularly well suited for heavy use and get broken quite often. Replacements are getting harder to come by as most new cameras are only offering micro hdmi outputs.
I was wondering what everyone else is using? Is this a common problem?
Looking for alternatives that don't need reclockers or conversion boxes. A zoom and a viewfinder are also pretty important.
