Hi everyone,

I just came across this on the planet 5D website, I was wondering if this photographer's system could be a good "cheap" option for video assist.
It seems to me that I could get the SD signal out of my monitor into that little wireless. May be good for focus puller.
Check it out:

Best, Sebastien.

The SD output is not much good for focus pulling. Remember that the image is already shrunk down from full-screen to letter/pillarboxed, and SD to boot, so you are looking at just a few hundred lines of resolution. It's extremely difficult for the focus puller to find "sharps", especially in conjunction with an inexpensive smaller monitor.

The "Something like that" I was referring to is this photographer's wireless solution he's building out of his garage... I have been tempted hundreds of times to buy one of those 2.4ghz thingies at Fry's and try to use them as a wireless solution... Then I see the demo model drop out, and I remember why it's a bad idea.
wireless HDMI (When it's 1/10th the current size) for the win
