When comparing the SmallHD CIne 5 with the Indie 5 using the B&H item comparison tool, I can see that the Indie 5 has half the brightness (1000 nits compared to 2000 nits). The indie is powered with a 10VDC barrel and the Cine with an industry standard 2 pin LEMO input,.The Indie has Micro-USB for firmware updates and Cine 5 has a 5-pin LEMO. The Indie has SingleSlot:SD/SDHC/SDXC and the Cine 5 does not.
