I don’t want to be a person complaining about the price. I guess it’s just not for me. However I can’t help feeling that there should be more affordable ways to monitor for instance my BMPCC in 1080p. Knowing that many of us already walk around with smart phones with great displays, HDMI adapters to utilise them for monitoring should be a market opportunity. (Yes I know the signal would have to be compressed to get into the smartphone, but it’s a monitor, not a recorder, so I wouldn’t mind.) The Teradek does this cheaper than this monitor, but are there any other more affordable out there that I have missed? EVFs would also be interesting, but they all seem to be like $1000, when clearly add-ons like the Olympus and Panasonic EVFs (for their mirrorless cameras) can be made much cheaper, albeit without HDMI input.
Thank you so much! I completely agree with you. (Not to criticise the article poster. I'm sure it's all well meant. It's a very useful tip with quite unexpected results indeed.)
Can't say I really need it but I've been thinking about getting a GoPro for a while since it's so small and easy to mount on anything. The differentiation between Black and Silver on this new version is a bit strange in my mind. LCD on Silver but not on Black? The low-priced Hero seems very interesting, but since it does not say if it has ProTune or not I believe it doesn't, so perhaps I should look for a old Hero3 Silver or Black if the prices have dropped. I can't seem to find a good list of which models support ProTune. Please let me know if there are more, but these are the ones I've found for now: Hero4 Black, Hero4 Silver, Hero3+ Black, Hero3 Black, Hero3 Silver, HD Hero 2. (Note that Hero3+ Silver does NOT have it while the older Hero3 Silver does.)
Never mind my question. =) I was coming from my m4/3 sensor proportions, where a width of 4k requires a height of 3k and thus 12MP. However 3840x2160 = 8.3 MP and 4096x2160 = 8.8 MP, so the iPhone cameras should be close enough provided that they shoot in their native proportions.
So this app shoots 4K, which is 12 MP, from an image sequence produced with images from the iPhone 6's 8 MP camera? Is there interpolation for upscaling in software?
I don't see how any of these are competitors to the BMPCC. (The LX7 and CM1 do not have interchangable lenses and the GM5 does not have 4K. All probably have fairly low bitrate and we have not seen the dynamic range yet.
