I have a shoot next week and plan to shoot 720 24P and don't have a production
monitor but at the location there is a television. The
t.v. is 1080i but also has a DVD player hooked up to it that outputs DVDs at
480P, I'm told.

Could I use this as a monitor and how would you hook it up? Through the DVD
player or straight into the DVD player and with what connections?

Hi,

Probably, yes. Obviously try it before you get there.

well the dvd player won't have any inputs. If the tv has component inputs, use the 3 wire component cable that came with the camera and set the camera video display output to 1080i ( this won't effect what is recorded ). You will need to extend the cable as it's only about 4ft long.
All the best,
Shane.
