    Best Field Recorder/Codec for CS6 on PC

    electronDegenerate

      I'm preparing to buy a new video editing system to run CS6 (moving away from Avid). My intent is to also purchase a field recorder to record 422 HD off my XL-H1. What's going to be the best bet? I was looking at the SideKick HD since is uses SSDs, but it, like most, comes native with ProRes422. I don't want to worry about whatever I may lose by using the 32-bit bridge for Quicktime. I'm fine purchasing the Avid DNxHD upgrade, but it sounds like that still uses Quicktime and has some issues of it's own.

       

      So, what is going to be the best field recorder to use for Premiere Pro CS6? And it would be great if it has an onboard monitor.

       

      Thanks.
