Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum. I need to shoot part of a short film (using HDSLR) where 2 people chat online. Which screen and font type and size would be most recommended so that typing on the screen can be clearly viewed in the final movie?

Thanks!

This is invariably the sort of thing where you're going to have to shoot tests - it depends almost entirely on how you frame the monitor.

You just have to get tight nowadays on the text. In years past you had to re-size the font to accommodate the camera, but not so much nowadays.

Like Phil said, just shoot some tests.
