Hi,

Trying to figure out which HD monitor is the best upgrade for the Zephyr? I've been reading that most everyone is going with some incarnation of Marshall. I was checking out this one http://www.bhphotovi...Camera_Top.html which seems to be a good deal.

Can the IDX Battery version of the Zephyr power these ok and voltage wise? Looks like you just need a 4pin conversion power cable too.

Thanks in advance,
John

Yes, that's one version, but the one you linked to is HDMI. You may want to consider the HD-SDI version (which is what I have.) You can buy them with no battery bracket on the back, or with an IDX v-lock to match your sled (giving you one more power option).

Others like the 6.5" transflective Marshall, which (last I heard) lacked an image flip function, but is better in daylight.

Yes you will need a cable, get one through Tiffen or save some money and call Terry West. Very early Zephyrs had a hard-wired monitor power/video cable, but recent ones have a 6-pin Hirose. The cable you need terminates in 4pin XLR and BNC.

Someone here discovered their new 651STX have a mechanism that detects the physical orientation of the monitor thereby flipping the image. People who bought one recently may want to flip their monitor around to see if it works.

Thanks guys. I'll look into it. Also I'm investigating a way to mount a yoke so the monitor will swivel like it should without disrupting balance.

Ok, I found this one, wondering if it is the one everyone is jumping on to? http://www.lcdracks....70XHB-3GSDI.php

That's the one I bought. Not as bright as the 651STX but still pretty bright at 800nits. Lots of good features. I bought one with an Anton Bauer mount on the back, just to have an extra battery option, on or off the sled.

Check with forum member Tom Wills if you go with a 651STX. He built a monitor yoke for it, but for some reason the thread is inaccessable now.

Incidentally I got a great price and excellent service from Kenny Crysler, manager of the video department at Showcase Atlanta. They ship nationwide.

Great! I'll do a in depth comp on the 651STX and that other one. I've been talking to Tom about a yoke already. I found a good price too at Custom Supply in Alabama, but I'll check with your guys in Atlanta too!
Thank you again Mark!
