Shooting on the EX3 soon. Looking to optimize the quality while still retaining a reasonably small package size in the hopes of still comfortably operating handheld.

I've seen a bit about nanoflash products and am hoping simply to allow for the best option to record the least compressed image.

I have daytime/nighttime exteriors and a very small budget, so every little bit helps.

Suggestions on minimizing rolling shutter are helpful as well, since as mentioned, there will be a fair bit of handheld camera work.

Thank you.

The AJA Ki Pro Mini recorder a good option, its small - records 10-bit 4:2:2 pro-res HQ. So its going to give great quality with easy integration in post. It costs less then the nanoflash as well. The high bit rate for pro res is around 220 Mbit/s - so its going to be very robust and a bit step up from the 35Mbit/s internal codec.

The rolling shutter on the EX3 is pretty minimal - much better then the DSLR type cameras. Its fine for handheld work and only really noticable on whip pans - where everything is usually blury anyway.
