Amazing production monitor. Important, it doesn’t come calibrated from factory. It looks very green and contrast is off. I calibrated it using X-Rite i1 Display and DisplayCAL and now it’s amazing. Viewable in bright sunlight. The only thing that I don’t like is that the viewing angle is very low. For you to see accurate color and contrast you need to be dead center in front of the screen. If two or more people are viewing it they most be 3 feet or more from the screen.
This monitor is fantasticly bright and a great size for any video village setup at an affordable price. I love that it comes with a decent sun hood and v-mount plate. I was able to mount a wireless reciever rather easily using generic smallrig components I already had on hand.
The color of the monitor was pretty bad from the factory. Extremely green. Luckily I was able to use a display calibration tool to dial in the rgb levels and generate a correction Lut from my computer in DisplayCal. Then I could load it as a user camera lut. This is absolutely a necessary step to use this monitor with clients in my opinion.
It is also kind of a bummer that there is no weather sealing whatsoever, but I completely understand for the price these are going for. I've got clear bags on hand but worry a little about them generating too much heat covered from the elements.
Once properly calibrated, this is really a beautiful display and I'm very happy with the monitor. I know clients, directors, gaffers, hair and makeup, and everyone else in the crew love it.
This monitor is build really nice and has a clean image. I am impressed with what I got for the price.
