Great little input boxI love it. It's tiny and easily hides away, works perfectly as an external HDMI or SDI capture device, the only small issue is that it gets pretty hot during use, but not enough to be a problem, just another little mini heater in the recording setup.

Sturdy build, compact form factor. Works mostly as expected.I bought this to live stream an event. I did have some hassles at first because my camera only provides certain output modes over HDMI, and the Blackmagic hardware and software only support certain input modes. I phoned Blackmagic support, and we were able to find a setting that worked. Be sure to read the documentation of this device and your camera to make sure it will do what you need. The device worked great on the day. The compact form factor and sturdy build are definitely a plus in the field.

I get a pro field monitor for hundreds not thousands!This is a great simple piece of gear that enables me to use my calibrated 17" MacBook Pro as a field monitor using software such as ScopeBox, so I get a professional field monitor with all the scopes like vector/waveform/audio and more for a couple of hundred dollars instead of thousands & I can record direct to disc if I want, awesome! When shooting 4K you really need a larger monitor than the FS7 or F5 have especially for focus...

I would always have one of these in my bagI purchased this device to capture HDMI video feeds for hard drive recording and live streaming. This device is so small but very strong and easy to set up. I have used it successfully to live stream video via the service 'ustream' and it worked amazingly for a week long conference without any issues. It comes with good software from the folks at Black Magic and also has the capacity to record to the HDD of the computer that it is linked too. Uses thunderbolt cord to connect to your mac. Ensure you purchase a 'Thunderbolt' cable not 'Mini Display cable' and also if you have an older mac that you have a Thunderbolt port NOT mini display as it won't work with this port. Works with Thunderbolt only.
