I totally get the issue, you cant see much on it.

I use the same monitor, and i just totally fckup the settings. The one i use the most:

In the Color menu, set the color temp at 'user 1' and  make the red and green gain around 50 and the red gain at about 90.

Just play with it and make a few different ones, user 2 and 3. It 'll help you to see more.

Started out as a focus puller 8 years ago, I shot movies and commercials in Italy, Spain, Turkey, Uk, Bulgaria, Morocco and USA. Love everything camera related, gear porn and sharp lenses. Sharpness is not debatable.

I’m using now the tvlogic f-7h and I think is a very good compromise between large monitor and portability. The extra bright also help a bit in dark situations. Nevertheless I try always to measure and take marks, so the monitor is just a double check during the take. Good luck!

Yes I do the same, but in some situations, like 90% we don't do blocking or rehearsals. And u need to double check.

A focus-puller is the eyes of the audience. It's like telling a story without any words.

Hi Kim, currently I'm shooting a television serie that's in pitch-black and everything is shot at T1.3

For having a better view on my monitor I turn up the brightness to 60-70% on my Tv Logic 9".

Hey there! It might seem really obvious, but the bigger the better for the most part... On House of Cards, the lenses were usually between 1.3-2 in some reallly dim sets - we used SmallHD 1703-P3X monitors. I honestly think it’s one of the most rugged 17” monitors, which really helps look at critical focus, especially on wider lenses (which it’s  harder to tell on smaller monitors). I personally pull off of a SmallHD 703Bolt, which is really as small as I can go...I think I’ve been spoiled?


That said, some of the best focus pullers I’ve ever worked with only used the 058w along with marks and decades of experience pulling focus... This is how both of the 1sts on Madame Secretary pull and it’s really quite impressive - I just find myself needing the help of a larger screen (:
