Package includes:

  • Cinetronic Generation 2 Monitor
  • Anton Bauer battery back
  • Cinetronic Monitor Yoke (attached analog bubble level)
  • Cinetronic Digital Level
  • I'll even include my connector plugs for the unused ports on the back of the monitor.  They are gasketed and improve the weatherproofing.  

 

Monitor is seven months old.  Digital level is brand new, never used.  Monitor recently serviced by Cinetronic and updated with the latest firmware (12/5/13).  There is a small bug with the level in that it must be unplugged in order for the monitor to power up.  Once powered up, the level can be plugged in and works just fine.  This is NOT an issue unique to this monitor.  Chris at Cinetronic has said it's an issue with the latest firmware and if rolled back to the previous version firmware, it will correct the problem.  I do not have the ability to update firmware on my own, otherwise I would have.  

 

Brand new, everything included would be $6,874 plus tax, and a 4 week lead time.

Asking $4800.  Ready to ship now.  Buyer pays shipping.

 

Call, text or email:  781-883-4235, aftongrant at gmail.com

 

Cheers!

I've had a lot of inquiries asking if I'd be willing to break the monitor and level up.  The answer is yes.

Good morning Afton,

Can I ask why you are selling a 7 month old Cinetronic monitor?

Thanks

Damian

Hi Damian,

 

It's a personal preference thing, really.  The monitor is just not for me.  I know a lot of people are very happy with theirs, and they're willing to keep working with the company through the firmware updates and any bug fixes.  We just welcomed a new baby into the family and I simply don't have any time whatsoever to focus on my equipment.  It may not have all the features of the Gen 2, but my Gen 1 always performed solidly, so I'm going to stick with that for now.  

 

Cheers,

Afton

Thank you for your response.

I have a Tb-6 which I love, I do a lot of work outside so the Tb-6 is brilliant in daylight conditions. How would you compare the Cinetronic to a Tb-6?

Cheers

Yes, as Jens said.  I have had both the Gen 1 and then Gen 2 for the last three years.  I've never had an issue in the sun.  Never even needed a hood.  It's the best screen available right now.

I'll second that praise for the Cinetronic Image. For all of the Trumpeting of the few shortcomings it's sometimes forgotten how GREAT the image is. This has recently been hammered home for me as I just sent my Gen 2 in for the heatsink upgrade and have been using my old Ultrabright in the meantime. First shot up with the old monitor required a serious tilt up at the opening and a tilt down to finish and there was no angle I could set the monitor at where I could see for the whole shot - I never had any problems, in any environment or any shooting circumstance seeing the image with the GEN 2!

$4600 for the whole package.  

 

It's as new, exactly as you would get it from the manufacturer minus a few cosmetic scuffs (not on the display), and minus over $2000 and a wait period.
