Try working in reality TV, movie production is nothing compared to some reality shows as far as bad working conditions and crew abuse. Deadliest Catch for example has crews working upwards of 20 hours at times and in most cases you have to take care of a lot of stuff yourself. The Amazing Race is another one where you can work long hours and have to lug around all the gear yourself. I've been on shows where I had to shoot for over 5 hours straight with no breaks and almost a 40LB setup on my shoulder, multiple days in a row. Movie production is cake compared to all this.
I got to try this monitor first hand. When I first heard of the price I was like eh seems a bit steep, then I actually used in in person and I will say its one of the nicest EVF I've looks at, better then the Arri Alexa one, and rivals the the Graticial OLED and top of the line Sony ones. Its one of the first i've seen where I can honestly stay pulling focus should be a breeze with this one. Also the features were great.
The only down sides I saw was its not OLED, I like that OLEDs are bright enough to look at even in the sun. Also there is a small bit of image distortion in the Loop, don't really distortion more over keystoning effect because of the way the mirror reflects the image in the loop as its side mounted. Its not a deal breaker though and they could improve upon the loop design which is already well thought out.
But I'm gonna get one not just for my FS7 which already has a good enough Viewfinder for pulling focus, this one would just leave no shortcomings but I also work a lot in TV and shoot a lot on PDW F800 XDCams and I would rig this to it to allow perfect exposure and focus.
Its funny how every year people buy into their hype and when the products actually hit the market they aren't as good as people hoped. However I will say, they do have some interesting products and at very competitive prices. However the Ursa Mini which everyone is raving about might not be as amazing a deal as people might think it to be. When compared to the closest competitor the FS7 it does fall noticeably short especially for the compared price. The old Ursa sensor isn't that great it had a lot to be desired so you would have to go with the new 4.6 sensor. To get that URSA mini setup, camera and viewfinder you're looking at 6500 dollars, yes 1500 dollars cheaper then the FS7 but, 1. You're capped at 1600 iso and thats max so don't expect it to be good in low light (the FS7's base ISO is 2000, the mini is probably gonna be around 800, they claim 15 stops of DR, FS7 has 14 its only a stop difference it won't be noticeable, but Black Magic has always been shown to over state their DR. The body lacks hard controls which makes it a bit more cumbersome for run and gun shooting. It has not built in ND filters which is a big headache. Also it doesn't have an efficient recording format. Raw is not efficient nor needed, pro rez is good but eats a lot of memory.
