question

What is the difference between VLB . . . AB . . . VL . . . AA systems? Also, I would like to use this with either a 5D or a C100 but both cameras have different outputs for the monitor. Problem?
Asked by: Andrew
The acronyms reffers to the type of battery you wish to use. AB=Anton Bauer Gold Mount, AA=Double A batteries, V mount, etc, etc. You can use the Atomos Connect H2S Converter with 2600mAh Battery to convert the 5D Mark III HDMI to an SDI signal and BNC connection.
