By technical editor Matt Allard:
Convergent Design’s Odyssey 7Q external recorder has been one of the most anticipated gadgets of 2013 so far. It combines an OLED monitor with the functions of an external recorder capable of 4K RAW (with the purchase of an additional coded license).
The company recently announced that it would be supporting RAW shooting with the Sony FS700. To do this requires a paid for firmware upgrade from Sony as well as the 7Q and the additional codec license. At Broadcast Asia last week Convergent actually had a working sample. Check out the video to see more.
