I'm relatively new here and I was wondering if I could ask for a little help with something.
I'm planning on doing a project with the unfortunate detail of having a very limited budget. Unfortunately an all too common thing lately.
Anyway it would come really in handy if the 1st AC and the director would be able to look at a screen and see what the camera is actually shooting. Now on sets they usually have remote video systems. And I actually don't have any problems hooking up a pc monitor to a the camera or even multiple pc monitors. Since I do have access to a bunch of them.
My question since I've seen LCD TVs on set showing the camera image. Is there something witch I have absolutely know idea what to call, some kind of electronic box that would let you see a histogram and focus peaking etc. on the monitor or TV hooked up to the camera.
Of course something that isn't so expensive that it would be cheaper to buy field monitors that already contain this functionality.
Anyway thank you for your time and ideas witch are very welcome.
