This month i have been to IBC and i saw the new 10" TV Logic monitor.
Still a demo version, but the specs, size and build surprised me. 4K, a very slim housing, and very light in weight.
This new monitor will come out in november this year, with a maximum of 1000nits.
Which is in comparison to the F-7H with 3600nits max, not that much. BUT! They have also announced a brighter vesion of the 10" to come out next year. And lets be honest, do you ever use your F7H to the max. brightness?
With all the LF cameras and LF lenses, to me it feels like i need a bigger monitor especially for features and big commercials.
I am very curious, what do you think? do we need to go bigger with all the LF cameras coming out?
I would say for focus pullers having both smaller(portable) and bigger monitors on set will be essential sooner rather than later.
I would probably go for larger monitor (smallhd1303) if I were to opt in. Just because 10" is kind of in the middle, can't carry it around and if I can't carry it might as well get something bigger.
Hey Rozemarijn, that 10" sounds pretty good, but not sure about the advantages of 4K on a panel of that size. Let alone the separate issue of 4K monitoring on-set.
I have a SmallHD1303. Got it about about 2.5 years ago, they were still reasonably new at the time, and I have never looked back. Even back then, I never understood putting a 5" or 7" on a stand. If you're using a stand anyways, you may as well go bigger. It's obviously on the heavy side, but I actually like that, as it's a stable and rugged work station with an Avenger A1020B stand.
As you say, with all the larger format cameras now available, 13" is pretty ideal for me. You can see the focus very clearly, but still be reasonably mobile, and have a monitor with manageable power consumption. Three 98Wh batteries get me through any day comfortably. It's also nice to be able to easily rig and power any receiver without having to build some form of Frankenstein bracket to hold everything together.
