Hi, 

I was looking into all the available high brightness monitors for steadicam on the market and created this list: 

https://docs.google....RGc&usp=sharing

Feel free to add any info or monitor into the list, I'm sure I'm missing a few.

 

PS: I had a look at the new TV Logic one yesterday at AbelCine in NY and it looked great.

Hi Victor

good list thanks for that

I saw the new TVlogic offering and although I have their older 7" that I think is brilliant but not the brightness star in the galaxy :) I didnt think much of the new one

I think your list might need an indication of resolution too please some of the brighter offerings are not full HD

All best

joe

No problem. Also, I am only looking in the HD monitors.

 

Other new surprising monitor is the Sony DVF-L700, it's actually a 7" "viewfinder" for the F5/F55 but is full HD screen and can decode 4k signals. I don't know the vrightness but il looked pretty high when I saw it (I was indoors and at night...).  It has a "high" button to toggle the high brightness.

Other wise it is pretty good in color rendition and has a dedicated plug for the newF cameras to communicate as a EVF. Oh, and it's $4,500.

Point to consider. It's just not about brightness. You need to have excellent anti reflective coatings AND high contrast

I think a good monitor to add would be the Small HD DP7 HB-SX http://www.smallhd.c...ge_template.php

 

The stats are just astounding.

Don't forget the Boland 8.4" HD Daybright!  I love the product and have used them (I own two!) for almost five years now with excellent results.

How does the Boland handle varying voltages? I've used a Boland before, though I can't remember the model. It didn't like the full charge from Anton Bauer batts and would shutdown on me a lot.

Just added the BON monitor to the list and realized it's exactly the same than the Ikan (same shape, stats and even price)

I'm thinking that the Small HD will be amazing. Dale says that they will be adding an AR coating, but I'm not sure if they're going with a bonded screen. Luckily, I locked in the $2,699 price with my pre-order before they up'ed it to $2,999. I'll be waiting until that monitor is finalized before moving forward with any purchases.

Thanks for the shout out Brant!  Your model - HD84LDB-P,  has 170 degrees off axis, vertical and horizontal.  Also, Eric above makes a good point about anti-reflective coating (which this model includes) and CR.  And, with an optional power reg, this model can handle between 9-36 volts.  BTW - it's 1500 nts and rez is 1024x768. $500 off now due to post NAB special....
