Has anyone used the v-lcd651st-3gsdi yet?

According to the specs the 6.5'' is much better than the 7''. Shame about the 4x3 format though, means a greatly diminished picture size when shooting 16x9.

I'm looking at it more from a 1st ac point of view than a steadicam ops so I'm quite interested in hearing about the peaking compared to say astro or panasonic.

Also does it flip? Couldn't find any literature about this.

Does it work with all genesis and red refresh rates?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It does not have a flip function and I believe it doesn't have adjustable framelines either. The fact that it is lacking those two features is really annoying since it is a great little daylight viewable monitor.

I'd wait a month or so for their OLED line. Marshall's rep said they would be in basically the same price range as the current line. I was told November

The OLED prototypes I have seen so far were not very promising as far as daylight viewability so I wouldn't hold my breath. Hopefully things will be different when production monitors become available.

The OLED brightness levels looked identical in daylight to the LED versions that Marshall had in side by side comparisons I saw at that monitor shootout last June or whatever. The biggest difference was power draw.

I've lost track now--don't think we had the OLED on the rotisserie, did we? Think it was just at the Marshall table?

Thanks for all the info guys.

Did the OLED have all the functions that we were talking about?

What seemed to really kill that OLED was the reflectivity of the screen. The 6.5" LCD had better viewability but as I said the OLED was a prototype so things will hopefully impove. One nice thing about the Marshall 6.5" is that since it is transflective it doesn't use as much power as those with super bright backlights yet seems to actually have better viewability.

That's right... They had an OLED there at their table, and I asked him if I could look at the OLED next to the regular old LED... In daylight, they looked pretty identical. The surface coating seemed to be infinitely more of a factor than whether or not the LEDs were organically grown, free range and uncaged. I like the look of OLED indoors much better, though.

I don't know man, maybe they had more than one of them there. The monitors I saw both had the same coating

I liked this monitor very much when I saw it. I think it didn't score as high as others at the shootout because it was 4X3 and only 6.5" (too big is bad for me).

I think it's $3600 for the Steadi version with moveable framelines, and another $400 for the digital level add-on (in a separate box). I've been demoing the Solar 7, daybright version, and I haven't found a situation where I can't see the screen clearly. I'm sure I'll be picking one of these up soon.

It also comes with a false colour mode for exposure checks, which I've fallen in love with since using that function on the Red. I really prefer it to a waveform for a quick scan of the image.

Just checked out the Nebtek steadicam version on their website and I have to say I am impressed. http://www.nebtek.co...=...D7SC&cat=31 I know many of us bugged them about their monitor lacking certain features at the monitor shootout and it looks like they have taken it to heart and included almost all of them. Marshall got the same treatment but as far as I know the results have not been the same. It is nice when a manufacturer listens to its customers.
