    Monitor Decisions! Transvideo or SmallHD?

    ive been using several different transvideo 6" models. im not interested in the 8" because the 6" is already pretty heavy and i have very rarely felt like i need the extra screen real estate. i really like the digital level among other tools in the transvideo. im using them for all sorts of stuff. in general i do not prefer any small hd monitors, though they have come around to working pretty well and i do like that i can setup different monitor modes, but really i would only find that useful on the camera or when using the remote head, i dont know why i would really want that on my steadicam rig, and i also think that it is too light-weight. turnaround times for repairs has been awful in my experience, so absolutely purchase two of them. i own two of absolutely everything anyways, but i would definitely have two small hds because when it goes down, and it will go down, youll wait minimum three weeks to get it back. transvideos seems to do great in all weather conditions, the customer service has been awesome, super sharp. i feel like im running a customizable pc or mac pro tower, with small hd i feel like im running an ipad. the viewing angle on the transvideo is not excellent, literally my only gripe. i also hear good things about boland and i own a bon and am very happy with it. brett.

    Duty Taxes

    also consider calling the fedex brokers office. a lot has to do with the harmonized code that you used. when i imported my first mosys head i paid almost 3000 in duties. the second one i paid zero. just did the paperwork more correctly i guess. brett.

    M1 volt vs betx wave

    totally different tools, they only overlap on horizon compensation. but if it were my money id go with volt based on what it can do. but ive been hearing a good bit about chattering on lock offs.

    Best Hi-Brite monitor for Archer 2

    i own two transvideos. expensive, but not overpriced, the value is in the great tools inside that beast. also the weight is great so that you can better achieve dynamic balance with two batteries on the back mounts of a rig. small hd is fine, some good features, but i have had a lot of trouble with long turnaround on repairs. if you get a small hd then get two. i have two of everything anyways but i would definitely have two of those. use a matte screen protector for the glare. bon also makes some great monitors that should be considered
  5. ive owned the bolt 2000 and i was so happy to get rid of it. i have a buddy who owned the boxx atom and i used it several times and loved it. never seemed to drop signal, and the channel switching is super easy, just a button, not toggling. it would love on to a channel and work like a dream. performed very well on vehicle work. i was always breaking bolt antennae and i had the bnc connectors replaced multiple times, they got too hot, i dunno, i just never want to use them again.
