Anyone used this monitor? Check it out at astro
You will need to click on the monitor on the right and then scroll down and click on DM-3005. It's a 6 inch SD/HD monitor. I guess it was at NAB, but I don't remember hearing anything about it. I'm just curious what the price is and also if anyone has any personal experience with it.

The Astro in different generations has been around for a few years and is very commonly supplied with HD packages. I've used this and other models in the past. It's lousy in brightness, NITS and off-axis viewing. I often can't see the screen at all unless I mash my head directly up inside the hood. The new Panasonic 8.4" screen seriously outperforms it and is less expensive, but I still wouldn't reccomend that for exterior use.

I've seen many Astro monitors before, but I hadn't seen this one. Just curious was all. I have no plans of buying one. I would buy the Panasonic first, or even the Tiffen monitor. Thanks for the info Mitch.
