Dusty Mccord sent in this review for folks interested in finding out the differences between the Odyssey 7Q and the Atomos Inferno.
Hello, my friend and I recently ordered the inferno after using the Odyssey 7Q for a couple years.
There were a lot of questions we had on little details about how the two units compared that were not answered by other videos on youtube.
So we throw one together after playing around with the two units.
I think it would be helpful info for anyone else considering buying one of the two units.
