Jens has a Blackbird fs -- check the classifieds. I think he's asking around $3k, I'll pick it up and deliver it to you for $4k.

I'll clonk Jens on the head, steal the monitor, and deliver it for 3.9k. How's that for undercutting?

Hi Pete,

are you selling the MK-V version of the Hummingbird and if so I just want to make people aware of the fact, that I owned both, the original IMP/Lumavec and the MK-V version of those monitors.

The MK-V version lacks all the basic image adjustment features that are standard on the IMP/Lumavec version like saturation (!), Gamma, Hue/Tint, Color balance and others. In my experience the picture quality of the original version is far superior to the MK-V one.

my 2 cents..

Hi Jens,

Apples and Oranges mate the MK-V version is a great monitor inside and out, that's why you don't see many being sold second hand people tend to hang onto them. Mine has had not much use being a backup now so it's gathering dust and makes an expensive doorstop. good luck with your sale!

my 2 cents Aussie,

Pete Barta

it's more apples and onions. my Hummingbird by the way is no longer for sale, so there are no ulterior motives.

as i said, I owned both at the same time and compared them extensively.

All I want is to make sure that people understand that the MK-V version is not the same version they saw at the monitor shootout.

good luck.
