I'm looking for a portable digital video recorder. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would like it to have video and audio monitoring. The job I need it for will only be a SD 480 feed. I really don't want a laptop involved just something small and portable. I'm not sure if my input will be composite or component but probably composite.
I hate to buy something that is outdated but if it's cheap it wouldn't matter. I thought about getting a Matrox MX02 LE and plugging a ATOMAS Ninja into it via HDMI. Does anyone know if this would work? I can see use for these pieces of gear down the road and maybe worth the investment.
