I have looked at the forum and saw the thread regarding the Atomos Inferno but no-one really spoke about whether the screen presents a problem with reflections. If they are a problem what have folks done to counter the problem? Has anyone found a product that solves the issue?

I don't have the atomos monitor, but the smallhd dp7hb is way too reflective for my liking, and their screen protector they sent with it didn't help much.

I purchased some anti-reflective matte iPad screen protectors from Amazon and can cut 2 to fit the monitor from each one. It works quite well, and there are a lot of types to choose from to fit your taste.

Try making a hood.  If you still get too much glare, make the hood for all 4 sides, then put dark nylon stocking mesh across the front, and see if that helps.


The best glarestopper I ever made was done like this, with one hood about 2" tall, the mesh across that, then ANOTHER 2" hood above that (to keep the mesh away from direct sunlight).
