Hello fellow cinematographers,
I need help deciding wether or not to but the ikan vl5 field monitor. It's one of the only monitors ikan has that offers dslr scaling (a must for me) but im concerned about 2 things.
1) its only 5 in, and that doesnt seem like much of an upgrade from my 60D's 3in swivel lcd. the vl7 seems nice but it doesnt have dslr scaling, so its basically the same as the vl5. is there a firmware update or some way to make the vl7 dslr friendly?
2) the resolution is 800x480. is this good? ive never heard of this resolution before and im curious to know how good it is.
im looking for this monitor to let me not only frame and focus, but also have the ability to get accurate color representation.
is this a good buy? are there other monitors, possibly different models/brands that would be a better fit? i dont want to spend too much on a monitor.
I really appreciate the help!
ikan vl5: good buy?
