Great advice

I shoot with field monitors almost exclusively now.  Even the most modest version are a huge benefit.  Easier to compose a shot, and most importantly to see if your focus is correct.  You have to buy a higher end one to judge color and exposure, but even a relatively modest Lilliput is a huge benefit over the on camera display.  

Feelworld monitor

I am just thinking to buy a SDI monitor.One of my friends recommend me this 7 inch Feelworld monitor with 3G-SDI. I checked, and find it is IPS panel,1280*800, and with Waveform, Vector Scope, RGB Histogram etc. Have you guys tried this one before? Can you give me some suggestion about it?

I'm shooting with a 270 degree lens and need to overlay graphic markers onto a live feed. Does anyone know of a field monitor I can overlay my own graphic file without the use of an external mixer? Thanks tony@povr.co.uk
