      my question is – is it okay to use a varizoom lcd w/ sunhood and all the goodies in place of a production monitor while shooting to check for correct exposure and lighting ? decent monitors go for $700-1000 / is it worth the cash? I’m looking into shooting commercials for local tv stations such as WNDS and WMUR and comcast. I’m still pretty new to the high end equipment and would love some help / thanks / p.s. how would i hook up my canon xl-1 to a production monitor ? do they have rca or should i use a different connection for betetr picture / i’m lost

      Basically, no LCD display will provide accurate color and brightness information. The gamut is wrong, the brightness depends on the level of your backlight, and the contrast depends on your viewing angle.
