This has been bugging for a while but I have not gotten the chance to ask about it, until know.

Whenever I watch the special features for a film I see the 35mm film camera's and next to them there are color monitors displaying the set in a framed shot. Is this electronic video image coming from another camera inside the film camera? OR am I totally wrong?

PLEASE EXPLAIN THE PROCESS

Hi,

You are seeing a video assist image. The camera may be built in or attached to the film camera, depending on camera design. The image is focused on the ground glass via a beam splitter. The quality varies but is poor relative to the film image.
