2. Samurai records ProRes 10bit 4.2.2, SSD or HDD, PPR-Win does not support ProRes
I don't have many answers for you, but I can tell you for a fact that ProRes is supported on Windows. You can import and playback the files so long as you have QuickTime 7 installed, though you can't export back to ProRes (not that that should influence your capture device choice).
just right now i found Bill Gehrkes post
i followed your earlier very helpful posts becouse of ProRes, Win7, how to import in timeline or create custom preset. Yes, ProRes can be loded and edited, but if i cannot export to ProRes, where are the advantages of ProRes (exept in finding the decision of choosing the external product)? Is there any avantage in quality for color grading ?
You need to contact Blackmagic and ask them if their uncompressed Linear codec converts Log based formats. Normally DPX would be the way to go but the the Hyperdeck does not offer DPX. Also the SDI output of the camera may not include that information if it's before the encoder chip.
Blackmagic support answered me:
Hyer Shuttle does not record in 10 bitRGB 4-2-2 mode, records only in YUV/YPrPb 10 bit 4-2-2 mode.
This means, Hyper Shuttle can not recors sony F3 s-log mode (which requires RGB mode).
