I am interested in putting together a hand-held directors monitor that would work with my current Bolt 2000 (version 2). I'm not sure what monitor, brackets, and battery would be best as I try and find a balance between weight, ergonomics, ease of use, and view-ability.
I currently have two SmallHD DP7 HB's for my steadicam sleds and I would think that size and weight would be appropriate for this. Since I'll be buying a separate dedicated monitor for this, I wonder if sticking with the HB is the best option, or if going with the OLED is better. I realize the HB is better for outdoor viewing, but I believe the OLED has a better picture with truer colors, which might be better for a director so he isn't questioning the DP about lighting. If there is a better option out there, I'd love to hear about it.
Secondly (and I suppose this depends on what monitor I get), I need thoughts on what kind of hand-held bracket I need to hold the monitor, Bolt 2000 RX, and battery securely, while providing an ergonomic and comfortable means for the director to hold the set up. I'm not sure what is available, works well, and is rugged enough for day to day use with directors who tend not to care how hard they are on gear.
Lastly, I'm not sure what battery type to go with. Obviously doing Anton Bauers (I'm not a V-mount guy) would provide the most run time and be less of a pain with switching out batteries, but they would also be heavy to hold for a shot of any duration. Is there a better option out there? Something light weight but that would allow a decent run time?
Is there anything else I'm not thinking about or that I should consider?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
