AJA has just started to deliver their highly anticipated Ki Pro Mini external recorder. They had great success with the original Ki Pro, and the Ki Pro Mini brings several of the features of that device, but in a much smaller package. This little device can record an HD-SDI or HDMI video stream in several different flavors of the Apple ProRes Codec (422 HQ, 422, LT and Proxy). The video records directly to Compact Flash cards, which makes the workflow very easy. In the video above, I rigged the Ki Pro Mini to the new Sony PMW-F3. My rig was composed of a Zacuto Universal Baseplate with 12″ rods, two Ki Pro Mini mounting plates, AJA rod adapters, and an Anton Bauer battery plate. Watch my video to learn more about this compact, yet powerful device.
Compatible Compact Flash cards: SanDisk Extreme Pro 32GB, SanDisk Extreme Pro 64GB, and Hoodman UDMA RAW Compact Flash 675x 32GB.
