Im using the canon 5D with the Marshal Electronics v-lcd-50-hdmi monitor. all before it was workin fine, now all of a sudden wen i try to record video with the monitor connected it responds as if my CF card is too slow by shutting down the recording within 5 seconds every time. if i disconnect the monitor it works fine. it was working with the monitor all along up until yesterday can anyone please help. and yes i do see that lil icon on the side that indicates that its about to shut down wen the lights hit the top
I'm trying to find out how to do this without loosing quality. I've got to make a product show for my friend when he goes to his presentation. The video will run from a DVD to a Monitor via a HDMI to DVI cable.
Yet it seems this method causes to much quality to be lost. I'm not sure what video setup I should use.
For instance PAL DV 720x576 (16:9) which has the 1.4 pixel aspect ratio OR
use the square pixels PAL DV which is 1050x576.
Half of what I edit either goes just online, and the other half goes both on tv and online. I need a monitor that will give me an accurate picture of what the video will look like, especially on tv. I startedresearchingmonitors and they all are way out of my price range. Would it be a good idea to get a tv instead? Or is there a good enough computer monitor no more than $300. What specs should I be looking for and what is the difference between a tv an a computer monitor?

So here goes...
I shot an immense amount of footage in AVCHD from a Canon prosumer Vixia. Have 1920 x 1080 .MTS files that now need editing.
Here is the deal though...
I originally shot it in HD, need to first release it in SD due to media prices, but then want the option to release it in HD later when blu-ray discs go down in price. Need to know how to set-up the templates properly in Sony Vegas Pro as well as monitors for editing. A bit confusing for me since I shot in HD, need to edit it but then output to SD, but then need to output in future to HD.
As a student with not a lot of cash to spend on making movies, I am always looking for good ideas for saving money. I noticed that even 2nd hand LCD monitors are really expensive, and my cameras are ancient relics that don't have the luxury of a flip-out LCD screen (and those are not perfect anyway and make us all look a bit like "tourists"), so I hit on the idea of using a portable DVD player for the same purpose. This is a really cheap way to do things, probably under $100 depending on how fancy you want to get.
I'm a relative newbie video editor looking to expand my editing setup. I've read that I should be running a reference monitor other than my computer monitors. Is this only necessary for SD video? I deal exclusively with HD (or upconverted HD). Would that look the same on a reference monitor as on my cpu display?
If I DO need a ref monitor, what do you recommend? This might be a dumb question, but do I need an additional card to get from the computer to the monitor? Is there anything else I would need for this setup?
Thanks in advance for your help!
