I´m a longtime follower of this incredible helpful and interesting forum, but new as a active member. I started a couple of month ago with steadicam operating (Don´t be afraid I´m not bothering you at this point with a demo reel!) First I visited a Tiffen silver workshop with Robin Twaithes and Danny Hallett. This was a perfect starting point with the help and input of such great Instructors.
Right now I´m building up my Rig and I´m having a hard time to decide which Monitor I should buy. Because I´m living in France and I don´t have enough money to buy cheap or not bullet proofed, I´m interested in a Transvideo Monitor. Transvideo gave me a very interesting quote for a CineHD 6" classic SBL or eSBL. What do you think about starting with the 6" SBL (I could upgrade later to the eSBL). Could anybody who owes this monitor share his experiences with it? And also maybe say some words about a right choice of today: Is the Classic serie still okay or is the Evolution the must have now?
Or maybe the RainbowHD SBL?
As I said before, if I´m investing money in monitor now, I would like to work a couple of years with it. I´m having a solution to practicing already.
Thank you very much for your input,
