Bumped to this article a few days ago, The New Sony NXCAMs Have Uncompressed 4:4:4 60p HDMI Outputs* - NoFilmSchool where it says that my little camera can output uncompressed 4:4:4 RGB colour (8 bits, I know...) timecoded clips through it´s HDMI port....
Well, if I´m reading the right things, I learned that the quality of my clips are quite reduced when moving through an internal codec (AVCHD) from the lens/sensor to a SDHC card.... Although my camera is a single sensor and not all that big, the main bottleneck of quality seems to be (still) in the codec. Then, to get the best (uncompressed clips), I can use the HDMI output, using an external recorder that will save these files in another format.
What external recorder??? was my second question... Two main models jumped from searches: AJA KiPro Mini and Atomos NINJA 2... From price lists, just the Ninja survived...
But the point is: the files are saved in PRO RES format at a Ninja recorder, what I heard that is a good thing.... Can someone explain to me what can we do with this kind of file on Sony Vegas??
Anything special (extra) needed to work with them?
