Best all round on camera monitor?
Daniel O'Flaherty posted a topic in General DiscussionHi everyone, I wanted to get some opinions on what some of your favourite monitors to use on camera are? I am in the middle of researching which monitor would be best for future proofing and using on commercial sets and run and gun documentary type style projects while filming exteriors and interiors. There are a few features I am looking for: Above 1,000 Nits (for using on bright exterior days) HDMI & SDI input & output Colour accurate Offers Waveforms, false colour, histograms, selection of aspect ratios, etc Preferably between 5inch and 7 inch monitors A side question would be does anyone know of monitors like this where you can set the false colour values? This is surprisingly quite rare. Are there any thoughts I should keep in mind before purchasing? Also what are you opinions on monitor recorders such as the new Blackmagic video assist 12g? Any recommendations would be gratefully appreciated. Thank you.

Filming in a vehicle
DJ Kast posted a topic in General DiscussionHey all, I have a project coming up similar to "Carpool Karaoke". For safety/repeatability we'll be using a tow rig. I'm wondering if people have experience/advice on camera monitoring solutions? Right now I'm thinking we'll use Canon 5DMKIII's in cages with HDMI Teradek's mounted sending signal to the production vehicle and use a Decimator or a Black Magic quad viewer to a single monitor. Is there a more light weight or smarter solution? (I'm pretty opposed to go pros). Anything I might be missing? Any experience/advice is much appreciated! Thanks!
Hi everybody, scrolling through the alexa menu I saw items that I'm not sure what the are. - in the recording/rec out menu I see SCAN FORMAT, with the possibility of choosing between P or PSF. What is the difference between them? - in the same menu I also see HD-SDI FORMAT with the possibility of choosing between 422 1.5 SL/DL, 422 3G SL, 444 1.5G DL and 444 3G DL/SL. While I know that 422/444 have to do with the color sampling I have no idea what 1.5G and 3G mean, and same with SL/DL - in the MONITORING/MON OUT menu I see scan format and the options are P or PSF? Is this the exact thing I've ask in question number 1?And why in the frame rate option in this menu it doesn't let me choose 23.976 but only 24, 25 and 30 fps? Thank you in advance for the help!

35 mm film camera (Aaton Penelope or else) & HD monitoring?
Manu Delpech posted a topic in 35mmHey everyone, I'm looking into the whole shooting on 35 mm 2 perf thing right now for my first "professional" short movie, and what scared me mostly about 35 mm was not being able to really see what's being shot other than on a shitty quality video tap or assist, but I read here the other day someone talking about using an HD monitor and feed it the composite signal from the camera and having a much better quality, is this really possible? I read otherwise about the HD IVS by Arri but it seems ridiculously pricey, otherwise, it seems like the Penelope has actually a pretty decent, much better video feed, what do you guys think? Love this forum by the way, so many resources !
