Production Monitors Buyer’s Guide: Getting the Right Image for the Work


ikan D7W Perfect Field Monitor

The D7W lets you really see what you're actually shooting.  No second guessing your tiny lcd monitor or a cheap television set.  I am writing this during a break on set, looking at my D7W mounted on a monitor arm from  The D7W has every essential feature for great field production all in a compact, sturdy, easy to use package.  Buy the kit which includes a great carring case.  The D7W tells you exactly what you need to set color levels, gamma, luminance, focus, framing and exposure.  The learning curve is....there is no learning curve.  

The real benefit is that this monitor will save you time in post.   A 20 second check in the field, pressing the buttons in sequence, will cut hours off color correction in post.
