Hello all,

 

As I've been expanding my crew and becoming more involved with just directing actors, I've been looking to buy an external monitor for my BMPCC so I won't have to work back and forth to check shots. 

 

My question is, do any of you guys have a suggestion for an external monitor for the Blackmagic that is under the price of $200?

 

Thanks!

John

If you're on set, you can buy a cheap computer monitor with HDMI input, that's what I've done for most interior shoots and it works great.

I have a cheap Samsung monitor for computers for the cheap shows. On something bigger I'll convert the HDMI out of my DP4 to SDI to give to whatever monitors we wind up renting (though in truth I might just go straight SDI soon).
