    Confused by this request. You don't need the ProRes transfer tool to transfer the ProRes files off the O7Q. Just eject the SSD's and copy/cut/paste the files over to your computer.

    You're not missing out. You can already record 4:2:2 8-bit uncompressed out of the stock HDMI. 4:2:2 8-bit really not much better than 4:2:0 8-bit, especially when keying. Not worth the hassle...

    You linked to the NP-F970. I'm talking about the middle size, the NP-F770. Both the NP-F970 and NP-F570 still appear to be in stock, but the NP-F770 looks in short supply.
