Blackmagic Video Assist 4K


This $900 video recorder is the cheapest 4K recorder of its kind, but this time being cheapest is not indicative of low quality.  This unit is competitive and the only real downfall we see, which is a big one, is the lack of 60P recording (we expect 60P 4K to become much more common going forward).

Main features include a 1920×1200 pixel 7-inch display, dual SD card slots, 2160P at 30FPS support, and mini-XLR audio inputs.

This unit allows 10-bit video recording to SD cards which is a nice touch.  Visit the Blackmagic website for more information.
