Atomos devices can monitor and record professional audio and video from any HDMI or SDI device. Not only cameras, but also Mac, PC, Game Consoles and Industrial devices. While the devices can record almost anything, to be useful you'll want to ensure that your camera has a "clean output" i.e. no menu information on the sensor output. The list below will allow you to browse cameras that are compatible with a specific Atomos device. To search for compatible Atomos devices based on the camera you own try their ALL PRODUCTS page.
