Let us know, which monitors you are currently using:
What size of monitor are you using?
What brand and model?
Why are you using this monitor?
Are you mounting it on the hand unit or on a stand?
Are you pulling through the monitor, or are you just using it as a referece?
Most of the time, I'm pulling off a SmallHD 703Bolt, which is a SmallHD 703U with a built in 300' Teradek wireless receiver. Its been my favourite tool since I bought it and its never let me down... When I can on larger shows, I'll try to get behind a Sony PVMA170 17" monitor - they're just so incredibly lightweight for moving around, they're pretty rugged, and the 4-pin input is nice for running with VCLXs (vs with the older Sony monitors). I also owned a SmallHD 1703-P3X for a hot second for a show, but ended up getting rid of it after not using it for half a year... A great monitor, but as I work mostly on commercials, I usually have to move too fast to lug around a 17" monitor.
9" Tv-Logic SRM 095W
See picture :-)
I like the ease and the picture size of this monitor. It's crisp and with it's 900 nits (with sunhood) it's perfect even in sunlight. The easy button access of Tv-Logic is nice for needing that extra's "brightness" on the fly. Apeture setting on 6.
On the picture I have "hard-mounted" my cvolution system with a 16x9 cinelock for easy on and off purposes.
The monitor is mounted on a Novoflex Mini Quickrelease plate and the stand is a Avenger lightweight baby stand.
Because of the speed of shooting on some filmsets (especially commercials - wide open apeture) it's almost not possible to shoot without any monitor. But when possible it like to lay out marks and use my Arri UDM for re-checking the distance and if i'm on "the mark"
