Hello all,

Is there any way to do a video tap from the Arri SR-1 16mm camera to a small LCD monitor? I'm not really talking broadcast monitors here -- just something as small as a 2.5" LCD screen.

I've been told different things about having to re-wire the inside of the camera, etc. But if anyone can provide a straight answer it would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi JD. I previosly owned an Arri SR 1 with a Jurgens color video tap. It sounds like you are looking for an onbaord LCD monitor? If so, I recommend taking a look at Nebtek monitors as they have a handful of affordable models. Transvideo seems to be the industry standard, but they are more pricey. Also be sure to consider how you will mount this monitor onto your camera (Isreali arm, 3/8 thread or 1/4 20?) and how will you power this accesory (do you have a spare fischer 11 port, correct cable?). Hope this helps.

Joshua,

Thanks for your help. I don't have an 11-pin Fischer cable. But I wouldn't really need to power the thing from the SR, would I?

I'm really looking for a cost-effective alternative for getting a Video Tap so that a BNC cable could run to the SR1. Do you know of any rental houses or companies that can offer a video tap cheaply?
