This is such a great resource that you are providing and you give it away for free. I enjoy seeing websites that understand the value of providing a prime resource for free. I truly loved reading your post. Thanks!

Had a question about the F 3/Ki Pro combo. i have the same setup but i have noticed a dead pixel in the Mini footage I do not see on the SxS footage. Have you noticed anything like this?

We did not do any tests recording to both the KiPro and SxS simultaneously, however I did record at times in camera SxS and externally to the KiPro and did not notice any problems with pixel loss. I wonder if it might be the card you are using in the KiPro. Have you seen this dead pixel on multiple SD cards? If not, it might be a bad data sector on the card itself.
