A great posting about using GoPros live. He does it pretty much exactly how I would. One interesting thing that Tom points out is that if you’re going to run the cameras live, your power supply can’t just be good enough to trickle charge the battery. You have to get enough current to run the camera continuously.
I’m also considering using a Blackmagic product called the ATEM Camera Converter, but since it uses LC connecters, I’m still investigating whether I can use one direction of the dual mode LC connecter with a ST adapter cable. If so, they would work well in Tom’s situation as they can accept HD-SDI or HDMI (from the GoPro Hero2). As they say, first world problems…..
