I may be shooting with anamorphics soon and Im looking for a monitor that can de-squeeze the image for viewing on set. Anyone know of some affordable ways to go about this?

Thanks!

Well, it depends what squeeze ratio you are talking about. John Brawley used this system to unsqueeze the image he shot on a SI2k and a Panasonic front-of-lens 1.33x anamorphic adapter: "It's only a 1.3x so plug in 16x9 monitor. Force menu to display 16x9 AS WELL."

Here is the link with pictures:

Hey Hunter,

I switch my monitor to 16x9 and the image is unsqueezed close enough to have a pretty good idea of what's going on.

Transvideo Rainbow 2 and Cinemonitor 3 have an Anamorphic setting. I use them when I don't have a de-squeezer in the viewfinder/Video assist path. You can also use with Full and Underscan modes.

Email transvideo above telling what your equipment is and ask what options they have.
