$1299 UHDTV Seiki 50" SE50UY04 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/6658/1299-uhdtv-seiki-50-se50uy04- Wed, 10 Apr 2013 11:56:40 -0600 NickBen 6658@/talks/discussions We shall be testing this UHDTV 50" Monitor with Red footage shortly... no joke.

Picked it up today at Tiger Direct with 4 yr Square trade warranty (essential for early adopters)...

Will let you know how it pans out, astounded by the price, let's see the quality now...

Availabe at:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7674736

  • 3840 x 2160, 5000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
  • 4K Ultra-HD 120Hz HDTV
  • Remote Control with Batteries
  • One HDMI Cable
  • Three HDMI Ports
  • Tabletop Base
  • Instruction Manual
  • The HDTV supports component and HDMI sources at 480i, 576i, 480p, 576p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 4K2K 30Hz on the 50” screen.
  • 5000:1 Contrast Ratio

Update 1: We had lots of fun today with this set. 4K and higher res Medium Format Photos look very good on the panel, as well as HD sources. Looks like a good inexpensive option for a UHDTV Computer Monitor. It is a basic panel, has inexpensive audio, two USB ports support playback of music and photos (Sorry, no video via USB). It has a scaler to fit height or width, and appears to give you back what you feed it... Garbage in/garbage out, etc.

BIGGEST PERK: IT'S PORTABLE!! Yes, it's slim and light enough for 1 person to move around. So far, it is an absolute steal at $1299 for April 2013...

You need to feed it an UHDTV signal over HDMI to get "4K" display of video. We have not had a chance to calibrate it yet, but it does look like a typical LED display, however with 4K resolution. Moving onto video display at UHDTV resolution next rounds...

UPDATE 2. I attached the 3840x2160 at 30Hz setting photo with one of my favorite websites while showing the Prometheus landed (c) 20th Century Fox, in the center top. NOTE the DVD size in relation to the entire screen. 4 of those little rectangles is HD. Cheapest setup possible- AMD 7970 and single HDMI cable on WIndows XP... Who needs displayport or HDMI 2 or thuinderbolt, when HDMI 1.4a will do for film and photo editing today at this low cost?

CONCLUSION: the SEIKI 50" SE50UY04 is a winner for lowest cost UHDTV Video/Computer Display in April 2013! A great achievement, and I strongly recommend an extended warranty with any new technology like this.

5.6" 1280x800 on camera monitor with peaking, aka H056 http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/2823/5.6-1280x800-on-camera-monitor-with-peaking-aka-h056 Tue, 10 Apr 2012 03:02:49 -0600 SightfulProd 2823@/talks/discussions I bought this monitor because it has 1280x800 resolution which is rare to see at a low price point (got it for $220 USD). The other monitor I was considering was the Liliput 7" but figured the smaller size of 5.6" would be more manageable, not to mention monitor peepers on set! For the canon range, I've used it with 5D, 7D, 60D and 600D. All of them give basic monitoring @ 1080i (with pillar boxes) but drops to 480p mush during recording except for the 7D. This is annoying as the monitor cannot reproduce the real sharpness of the actual video.

The colours aren't as accurate as cameras built-in LCD's (anyone have a monitor calibration method, pls?) Next, I paired the monitor with the Panasonic AF-100 on a studio shoot. The piece was lit high contrast with many, many shadows shot @ 400 ISO. The monitor showed pixelated 'noise' in the image but when I looked at the studio monitor it was clean, clean. So the monitor has trouble reproducing blacks.

Really I would only recommend this monitor for framing and focus. Of course pair this with the Panasonic cameras as they put out 1080i during recording which is crucial for focus pulling. Or.. wait till Canon gets their act together. The monitor came with a case with divided foam, sunhood, HDMI-HDMI mini cable, Sony battery plate (you'll have to buy a battery, d/w they are cheap). For the cheap price it's a good start :)

Use DSLR Monitor as 2nd monitor for Mac Pro (2013) http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10573/use-dslr-monitor-as-2nd-monitor-for-mac-pro-2013 Tue, 10 Jun 2014 02:00:39 -0600 andrevanberlo 10573@/talks/discussions Hi everyone,

I need a portable monitor I could mount on my GH3 or rig it for monitoring my Mac Pro (2013 version). I'd prefer a 9" version but I hope 7" would do the job as well.

This is what I want to use it for: I'm doing live streaming lessons but I need to monitor Skype at the same time to see what the student is doing. As I'll be completely surrounded by lights and cameras there is no way for me to place my thunderbolt monitor (too many things could go wrong).

Would it be possible to use a DSLR field monitor for this? And what would be a good choice?

I don't need colour fidelity, or peaking or any of those features(nice if they're there of course), most important thing is quality of the image and size of the screen: definitely not below 7" and preferably 9" and above.

I have no idea if dslr monitors can be used this way but I'm sure some of you do!

Thanks for reading this,

André

40" Monitor/HDTV for Editing? http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/10453/40-monitorhdtv-for-editing Sun, 25 May 2014 15:00:10 -0600 ragnar 10453@/talks/discussions I need some advice.
Here's the quick backstory:

I've been using two 23" Hanspree monitors for all of my Photoshop, AE, and Premiere editing for the last 6 years of so. One of the Hanspree monitors just died the other day and my first thought was to just replace it. Now I'm thinking that perhaps a 40" monitor/hdtv would be a possible choice. A 40" monitor would be about 729 inches square while my old setup of two 23" monitors was 698 inches square. Getting a real honest to god 40" monitor seems too expensive but I did find a Samsung H40B HDTV that looked good. One review said it has 4:4:4 sub sampling (whatever that is) which makes text very sharp and clear, an important factor for me and editing. Anyway, if anyone is editing on something like this I'd appreciate any comments.

I'm looking to invest in a new computer editing station with dual monitors. I'm looking at Premiere CS5.5 as my main NLE. I don't want to spend more than $3,000 (and preferably not too much more than $2,500). EDIT: I'm specifically looking at getting a PC but discussion about mac or hackintosh are okay too!

I'm guessing some people are in or will be in my situation in the future, so let's start a thread to think of options and recommendations. Ideas? (let's also not turn this into a flame war of mac vs pc vs linux, or fcp vs adobe vs avid!)]]>

I am selling my new Atomos Ninja Blade which is about 3 weeks old. This was bought for a multi shoot project and now no longer need it. There is a slight cosmetic mark in the bottom left hand corner of the case, which I have been told will cost $50 USD to replace. It works flawless and the waveform and the ability to record direct to Prores is amazing. The images out of a 5D MKIII being uncompressed 10bit looks so much better than the crappy internal H264. I highly recommend this monitor.

Price is $1000 inc postage.

Kind Regards,

Stu

After searching for a different solution to try and get a monitor stand so I could put a monitor on my lap(don't ask), I found this:
$400 IPS, does full 1080p touchscreen, and is powered by USB with HDMI and VGA. It's currently sold out though, but the 13" model is in stock and on sale $138 with today as the last day for that price. You can find similar models on ebay for around $210. That one only goes to 720p and no IPS or touch. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA0V108S5365

The smaller models only need 5v 1A, you could easily power them off lots of batteries out there. I'm tempted, but I'm not going to make any more major purchases until BlackFriday or after. http://www.gechic.com/product_help_en.asp?s=10

• Monitor with three batteries, hood, charger, short HDMI cable, and AC plug. Not a high-end monitor, but works well, reliable, and is great for focusing.

• Follow-focus, including two different mount heights, I can forewarn that this does have some play, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's an easy fix.

• Threaded arms and shoes mounts – work for mounting any items on cage or camera.

All is in good cosmetic and working condition (and in a nice Pelican Case), except the minor play on the follow focus which was mentioned. If possible, I'd like to sell the kit or as much together as I can. Check out pictures and make me reasonable offer if interested please.

*note this does not include the camera bodies themselves.

FS: Fotga Follow Focus, Seetec Monitor, and More http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/8063/fs-fotga-follow-focus-seetec-monitor-and-more Tue, 10 Sep 2013 10:43:00 -0600 matt_gh2 8063@/talks/discussions I'm selling a few things that aren't being used on my current film project. When preparing for this current shoot and when buying gear, I bought a few things that the DP didn't use. Everything is in perfect condition and was only used indoors once or twice to test when I received them. They were all purchased new within the last 3-6 months.

  1. Fotga DP2 Follow Focus with 2 Hard Stops. I also bought the Fotga Quick Release Slide Block Clamp for 15mm rail rods, which makes it 100 times faster & easier to remove the follow focus from your rig. I also have a Cinevate follow focus gear ring. I'm selling these 3 as a set for $199, with free shipping in US.

  2. Seetec 5.6" Monitor with 1280x800 panel resolution. This is the same one from our Personal-view.com deals, and that's where I purchased it new from. I also have 2 Sony NP-F770 batteries. These batteries currently go for $79.99 each on B&H. I'm selling the monitor and batteries as a set for $349, with free shipping in US.

  3. Rosco 730011 Polarizing Sheet 17" x 20". $35, with free shipping in the US.

Thanks, Matt

ABLE-HD, an inexpensive 17" 1080p LED Display http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/8022/able-hd-an-inexpensive-17-1080p-led-display Fri, 06 Sep 2013 11:54:53 -0600 donniewagner 8022@/talks/discussions http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sfen/able-hd-portable-hd-monitor-for-laptop-and-smartph

I backed this Kickstarter project. At a minimum I was happy to get a lightweight portable second screen for my laptop on the cheap. But I'm wondering if it could be used as a field video monitor. It has HDMI input. I am guessing the power would need converted to run on a battery in the field. I sponsored at the level of $135 which gave me the option of 13, 15 or 17 inch. I was thinking of I were to use it mounted to a camera rig the 13" would be nice.

Any opinions?

If you are interested the are selling preorders here for $135 http://www.able-hd.com/

Field monitor using tablet and HDMI to wifi transmitter http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/4079/field-monitor-using-tablet-and-hdmi-to-wifi-transmitter Sun, 29 Jul 2012 16:21:11 -0600 Chenel 4079@/talks/discussions I am looking around the possibility to use a tablet and a HDMI to wifi transmitter as a field monitor. The idea is the "HDMI to wifi transmitter" send wireless the video signal (working as a video server) and use the wifi funtionality of the tablet to receive the video. This could be used as a field monitor, probably not for video but good for photography, as you will have a good quality and large resolution display.

I appreciatte any help in this search.

4K Displays topic http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/7130/4k-displays-topic Sat, 01 Jun 2013 14:01:47 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 7130@/talks/discussions image

The ASUS PQ321 True 4K UHD Monitor uses cutting-edge Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide (IGZO) rather than traditional amorphous silicon for the active layer of its LCD panel. IGZO panels support much smaller transistors than amorphous silicon, which in turn gives much smaller pixels and the 3840 x 2160 resolution of the PQ321 is four times that of a 1920 x 1080 Full HD display.

176-degree wide viewing angles on both vertical and horizontal planes minimize onscreen color shift, while the 350cd/m² brightness rating and 8ms gray-to-gray response time ensure smooth, bright, and vibrant moving visuals. IGZO technology also gives reduced energy consumption compared to amorphous silicon and reduces bulk — at 35mm at its thickest point, the PQ321 is the thinnest 4K UHD monitor available today.

[SOLD] Small HD DP4 monitor with VF4 EVF and accessories for sale http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/7625/sold-small-hd-dp4-monitor-with-vf4-evf-and-accessories-for-sale Sun, 28 Jul 2013 21:12:50 -0600 Alienhead 7625@/talks/discussions Used only a few times, purchased earlier this year. Only 5.6" so small enough to comfortably put on a rig, and with the EVF creates another point of stability. Focus Assist+ is quite handy when using manual focus lenses. False Color has two modes, one of them shows ideal skin tone range (instead of only underexposed and overexposed). Cost new was $600 before shipping, I'd like to get $500 and will absorb shipping costs within the US.

includes all original packaging and accessories including the sun hood, lens cap, screen protector, Sony battery bracket.

Cheap 27" 2560x1440 monitors based on S-IPS panels http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/3100/cheap-27-2560x1440-monitors-based-on-s-ips-panels Fri, 04 May 2012 03:03:19 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 3100@/talks/discussions image

http://www.ebay.com/sch/Monitors-/80053/i.html?_fcid=168&gbr=1&_nkw=2560%20monitor&_clu=2&_sop=15

This monitors based on different variations of LG 27" IPS panel (used in Apple Cinema display) are already quite known on various forums.
Different firms are making them, plus panels and electronics are also different.

Most use DVI-D Dual, but active DP to DVI-D Dual converters exist, if you need them.

Can be good option, especially if you need 2-3 monitors.

Field monitor calibration for shooting http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/7089/field-monitor-calibration-for-shooting Tue, 28 May 2013 10:43:09 -0600 flablo 7089@/talks/discussions Hi, I have a Marshall V-LCD50-HDMI which I use with GH2 and GH3. I noticed the image being completely different from the one I get on the camera screen and in the recorded file. Anyone has tips/thoughts on this? Here on PV I only found tips on computer monitor calibration, not on field monitor.

This is my experience: looking for calibration tips, I found this

which seems pretty good. Anyway the first problem is getting a color bars reference image on the monitor: I tried taking some native jpegs stills, modifying them placing the bars over the image image and then saving, but nor GH2 or GH3 accepted to read the image. I finally managed through a minidv camcorder connected to FC to record and display the image on the monitor, and followed the procedure from the tutorial. Anyway during my last shoot I realized the image was once more different than what I was recording, so I'm somehow back at the beginning. The V-LCD50 is not really a lower-end monitor and it should perform decently in terms of color, so I'm quite upset for not being able to use it as a reference.

Thanks
