Blackmagic Design Micro Converter Reviews

Passes Sony record flag to EVF

By Alexander
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2023-01-07

Great small box and unlike many earlier HDMI-SDI converters that I tested, it passes the metadata for Recording in Progress and timecode to the SDI output. I use this in with a Sony A7ii in a shoulder rig with the Zacuto Gratical Eye EVF. (The Zacuto Eye has only SDI input). Because this feature was added to this latest generation Blackmagic converter, I can monitor the Record light in the EVF and the talent can see the red LED record light on the front of the camera. This helps avoid the dreaded "oops missed the shot and recorded half an hour of the camera pointed at the floor" syndrome. A double check is to also watch timecode advancing in the viewfinder. Power for the box comes from a USB tap on my battery -- it seems to draw very little power / don't notice any decrease in battery life while using. I know my rig may be different from what others are using but at least in this case it is a terrific solution.

Great adapter must have for video work

I use this to down sample my Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6K's signal to my Blackmagic ATEM Mini Extreme ISO and then also have it carry loop-back signal back to the camera to get tally light, preview, and timecode back onto the camera. It's as seamless can be and works great! Plus, you can load custom LUTs right on it.

Works when you have usb power attached

As soon as the usb power got connected and the light turned on, signal showed up on our 4k mini recorder card receiving the HDSDI output. Works like a charm!

It's great for a bidirectional converter. Used on tons of shows, indoor and outdoor and have had good luck with these.

Not overly impressed with the fit and finish, and it seems a bit pricey for such a basic function. Does not come with a 5v power supply. The input connectivity LED indicator is on the wrong side of the unit, making it awkward to troubleshoot connection issues. Meh.

Asked by: Jerry
Some of these cameras will work at 30 FPS and lower but at higher frame rates do not output a standard SMPTE SDI signal. This may or may not be the cause. You might contact support in your region.

Can you use this on a RED Komodo to connect it to an Atem Mini? The Komodo is a 12g SDI and the micro Converter is 3g. Will this cause any damage or loss to image quality when I stream?
Asked by: Brandon
Yes, you can use the Blackmagic Micro Converter to connect to an ATEM Mini. The Blackmagic ATEM Mini down-converts to 1080p anyway so resolution will be scaled by default.
