TVLOGIC VFM-056W zoom in 40% sharpness focus focuspulling monitor tvlogic TVlogic By Jacopo Meneghin on 11/22/19, 4:20 PM • 582 views Hello everyone I have a question regarding the monitor TVLOGIC VFM-056W. Last week I was using this monitor on a commercial and I found out that if I zoom in at 40% this monitor creates a kind of sharpness on the image, I'm not talking about focus peakings. It makes the images really crispy in the sense that helps you to understand if the image is in focus or not, useful especially with soft lenses. We had a second 056W on set for a second camera but I couldn't put this feature on, I tried with various settings on the menu and I looked online but no one is talking about it. Anyone that knows how to set it? did you ever use it on your 056? What is the exact name of this feature, Aperture? Is it possible to set it also in the 058 or 055? Cheers Jacopo Image without this feature

Rozemarijn On 11/22/19, 7:19 PM Hey Jacopo! Yes its the aperture and yes both the 055 and 058 have it. but, you have seen it on a 056. The 055 and 058 are both HD and Oled. Which makes the sharpness a bit different for the eye. i prefer the 056 (which is LCD by the way) because ive Always been working with it. I had the aperture on 2. In my opinion its the most realistic picture of sharpness, to me the others feel a bit fake. hope this makes any sense, if not, feel free to ask more!
Kévin Gourvellec On 11/24/19, 3:32 AM Hello, Did you check the firmware of the two monitors? Maybe they have different firmware and maybe the option ''zoom'' is not available with both firmwares. I have the 058W and it's a pretty good feature. I using it sometimes. Kévin
Fabio On 11/24/19, 12:12 PM Agree with Rozemarijn, even though as far as I know 055 is OLED, but 058w is LCD (that’s why is a million times better) i did notice the increasing of sharpness both in the 056 and 058 when going further than a certain amount of zoom, but I didn’t know it was related with the aperture setting, thanks for the info!
Chris Steel On 3/21/20, 6:02 PM I have mixed feeling with the 056. It's not a 1080p panel so a 2k signal or greater looks really mushy by. using either pixel to pixel or zooming in will really help actualy see what's sharp. However, if working with SD cameras or cameras with SD taps (SR3, 416) it works great. The panel outperforms the tap at that point so makes a great operators monitor. I've used the 056 a lot before I got my own 058w and I never really got on with it as a monitor to pull from. Great for a quick glance at what's in frame but I could never get to a point of trusting it.
