I ordered a Pilot Sled about 2 months ago but it's still on backorder. I just ordered a GH4 and was told that I might need to buy an adapter for it to work on the regular Pilot. I'm wondering if I should cancel my order and upgrade to a Pilot HD (HDMI) setup for my GH4. Any recommendations?

2 months for anything is just wrong. Cancel it, and buy a used Zephyr HD, or even a pilot, but with an HD monitor, in the used market you'll get it right away. Look for one within driving distance so you can go see it in person and check it out.

Hi David, I second the HD recommendation. I upgraded my Zephyr to HD (SmallHD DP7) and the difference is night and day.


The 7" monitors that Tiffen uses for the SD lower end rigs are pretty low rez, and forget about seeing anything on it outside...


My 2 cents...


Good luck!
