Our current setup allows for us to record our sermons, edit and publish them to youtube. To do this we have the following setup. Because of our budget constraints, all of the hardware being used is either donated or personal property of our video ministry members.

The Atomos Ninja 2 is used to record clean HDMI video output from the Canon 5d mark III allowing us to get past the 29 minute 59 second limitation on video length that dSLR's have. It also serves as a monitor to help with focusing and training (trainees can easily see the screen on the ninja 2). We don't actually record anything on the 5D which is nice, but you are still required to have a memory card in and even tho we have turned off the auto power off feature in the camera we have to press some button on the 5Dm3 every 15 or 20 minutes or the camera will shut off live view and that shuts off the HDMI feed to the Ninja 2. We have the * button set as focus lock, so we just press that every now and then and that keeps the camera going. We have successfully recorded 4 hours straight with no problems at all. The ninja does get hot, and that is by design. It uses aircraft alluminum for the housing to "wick" the heat right out of the internals. This of course means that the external housing gets very warm. Ultimately we would like to switch from a sata drive to a SSD for better battery life and to lower heat, but for now we are using what we can and have had no problems.
