I kept coming across posts and messages from people trying to get their Blackmagic Shuttle 2’s to work with the 3G ports on the F3. I decided to investigate this for myself as I am developing an exciting accessory for the Shuttle. I had been led to believe the Shuttle 2 had 3G HDSDi because of this, from the BMD press release on their web site:
But when you check out the tech specs, also on the BMD web site you will find this:
When I tested a shuttle 2 with the 3G Sdi on my F3 it didn’t recognise it at all. So my guess is that the press release is incorrect and misleading and the tech specs are correct. So be warned, don’t believe everything you read in a BMD press release. I feel sorry for anyone that purchased a Shuttle 2 expecting it to have 3G HDSDi and the usual signal and recording capabilities that it normally implies.
