I recently purchased a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 4k. The camera has no way to output full 4K 60fps footage to an external monitor (the monitor needs an HDMI input). The camera has a USB-C port, but it is not thunderbolt and thus the monitor can't accept it as an input. My only option at this point is to use a CFAST memory card in the camera's memory card slot, which is a poor solution compared to recording directly to my monitor.
Here's my theory. The camera has a CFast port, which I can convert to an eSATA port and input into a raspberry pi. I am wondering if I could use a raspberry pi to receive the video data input from the CFast port over eSATA, convert that video data to an HDMI output, and stream that to an HDMI port, which I could then hook to my monitor.
First question: Am I crazy? I am a bit of a nerd, but my knowledge of raspberry pi is a bit limited, so maybe this is impossible.
Second question: If it is possible, can anyone offer me some guidance on how I might go about doing this?
