Sony EVI-HD1 - its not HDMI but includes component output which the  
Intensity Pro accepts OK (it was only the old "non-Pro" version which  
was HDMI only - I don't think its available any more).

This camera also has an HD-SDI output which is ideal if you need  
longer cabling lengths (through ceilings, wall cavities etc). In that  
case you need the Blackmagic Decklink SDI board.

We've tried both outputs from this camera and they work great.
