        Comments about Atomos Connect H2S Converter with 2600mAh Battery:

        Brilliant but beware if using an older Canon camera.

        This is an amazing piece of kit, just don't use it with older Canon cameras.

        I purchased a Connect H2S to occasionally integrate HDMI cameras into my SDI video village system. We are just using it for monitor distribution only.

        It will not work with the Canon 5D MK2 nor the 60D or any of Canon camera that drop the monitor signal to Standard Definition during recording. These cameras output the obscure 480p format. Atomos does not support 480p. They probably only intended it to be used to feed their recorders and so never thought anyone would use it for monitoring with these older cameras. Which is to bad since otherwise it is perfect for those of us with SDI monitors who occasionally need to use the clients hdmi camera.

        For example we had this setup: Canon 5D MK2 (HDMI to) Connect H2S (SDI to) SmallHD AC7 and FSI 17" monitors. Everything appeared to be working fine until pressing record on the camera. As soon as the camera went into record mode the H2S failed to detect a signal and we lost picture across the system. As soon we stopped record on the camera, the signal came back.

        The build is solid. Absolutely brilliant form factor and the converted signal is solid. I kept it in my kit for other HDMI cameras. I hope that Atomos adds 480p in a firmware update for those of us who have use older cameras from time to time.

              We are using this with HD cameras for our High School TV and Sports broadcasting classes. With SDI cables, we are able to make long runs away from the switcher. The great surprise was that the cameras only export at 1080i and the Atomos converts that to a progressive signal. I would highly recommend this especially because of its portability without needing an extension cord.

                  Highly recommend for in studio use and especially on location shoots w/no access to AC power. Small & compact - great for use w/jib arms, sliders. The NP battery that comes with it will last around 4+ hrs.

                  Easy to set up and get going, literally can take out of the box & into service in minutes - very easy.

                  We looked at the AJA & Black Magic converters, and went with the Atomos which just gives you more bang for your buck - has more features, built in NP battery mount, and has had good reviews.
                  Not to mention - the built in test generator & pull down removal features.

                  Happy to have this in our production bag and would recommend to others!

                          Great converter!!!

                          I can use it for converting and also to send test signals / BARS down the line from my DSLR to tweek all of Video Village.

                          The pull down removal feature is very helpful with my 5D3 - I need to set the 3:2 to get actual 29.97 "P" from the camera. For 24 / 23.98 make sure you move the camera for a few second once engaging it to give the Samurai something to lock on to.

                          One battery will run it for about 4 hours. I use another battery to power the Blade then the smaller battery is only driving the H2S converter.

                          Well built. Well laid out =)

                            Comments about Atomos Connect H2S Converter with 2600mAh Battery:

                            We use the converter as part of our multicamera live broadcasting setup to add another HDMI camera to our ATEM 1 m/e or just to get the camera further away from the switcher than HDMI allows. So far it's been a great piece of gear at a great price, we'll probably buy a couple more of them. The included battery means that we don't need worry about AC power for it and we can turn it on during setup and not have to worry about it running dead by the end of the show, no matter how long the show is. We've already had a use for the test pattern generator too as on our last big broadcast (16 person crew) we had a bad SDI cable and we could easily identify that the camera and hdmi cable weren't the problem. It comes with a battery charger and AC adapter and the only annoying thing about the kit is that now I need to find a case to hold all the power accessories it came with, lest they get mixed in with all the other gear at our studio.
