Great!  Would it work with the Panasonic GH3? Or just the GH4?

You can use both the Atomos Shogun and Ninja Star with any camera that has a clean HDMI output, so you could use them with the GH3.

I am puzzled at Atomos' logic in using CFAST cards for the Ninja Star.

I have spent days trying to find a source of high-capacity CFAST 1.0 cards and could not find a single one!

Of course, there are version 2.0 cards available - like the one in this video clip - but they cost more than 3 times as much as the Ninja Star itself. 

I can see why quadcopter users might be willing to spend $1000 dollars on a Ninja Star and card but, why would anybody else do so when they can by a Ninja 2 and SSD/HDD for far less than that?

The Ninja Star is made as a device to solve a problem really. It is a small size, low weight item. The normal Ninja will still be primarily used when size is not an issue but for times (like on a quadcopter) when weight is a consideration, that is where the Ninja Star shows it's value.

When will it be available for Pre-Order!

We are accepting pre=orders for the Ninja Star here.

The Shogun is due later in the year. Pre-orders will be up once we know when it will start shipping.

    Excellent !
