A wide variety of Camera Mounted HD recorders have become available recently. These recorders all aim to increase recording quality and ease workflow needs, but they differ greatly in their form, function and price point. To help navigate these different options, we created a Camera Mounted Recorder Comparison Chart that compares several of these devices.
This chart includes details on recording format, media, inputs and other information that should help you decide which might be right for you. We also included the high-end recorders from Codex and S.two, which feature ARRIRAW recording capability. ARRIRAW is a 12-bit RAW Uncompressed format that can be sent out of the ARRI ALEXA camera.
Several excellent recorders from Sony, Panasonic, AJA and others are not included in this chart, because we wanted to focus on recorders that are designed to be mounted on a camera for production.
