    You should, it's a great combination. I've installed the update and will try the 2K 240fps mode later today.

    Dear Smoki138,

    if you need DNxHD, then:

    Please go to our website, www.convergent-design.com, then login (click on the arrow in the upper left hand corner), then click to Account, then My Devices, then click on the link to add DNxHD.

    Noel, I just did a quick test and jumped in front of the camera.
    I magnified the images from both the LT and O7Q and this is what it looks like. There are definitely less artifacts in the raw image.

    Unlike any other camera system -- with the exception of expensive specialist high speed systems such as Phantom cameras -- the combination of the VariCam LT & the Odyssey7Q+ provides uncompressed RAW high speed material. Every other non-specialist system compresses the signal in some way. It's the highest quality 2K240p one can get without spending a LOT more money.
