  • Fabulous unit, superb price

  • August 17, 2014

I had an immediate need to be able to grab content from the HDMI port on a series of DSLRs to build training materials for a Getting Started in DSLR Video class I was writing and delivering. The Intensity Shuttle Thunderbolt connected directly to the MacBook Pro and the included software allowed me to grab content in short clips and also as still frames for presentations. I spent more time worrying about how to do the work, than it actually took once the Intensity Shuttle arrived. It just works. I am very impressed by BlackMagic products in general and in this case, you simply cannot find anything this powerful for anywhere near this low an investment.
