Perfect for DSLRs, and video cameras that shoot on SxS, XDCAM, and P2 media, the Blackmagic Video Assist records on inexpensive and high quality SD memory cards. Capable of recording 10-bit 4:2:2 quality ProRes and DNxHD files, the footage works seamlessly with Premier Pro, AVID, Final Cut, and DaVinci Resolve editing software. Along with the invaluable recording capabilities, the Blackmagic Video Assist provides a beautiful 5-inch, 1920×1080 HD monitor with an incredible 135° viewing angle so multiple crew can view every shot.

    Just wish it could add a pulldown. For example, the C300 outputs a 59.94 signal even when your shooting 23.98. The Video Assist detects the signal from the camera and sets the framerate to 59.94.
