Best Hi-Brite monitor for Archer 2

Recommended Posts

I am looking to upgrade my Marshall 7" monitor that is mounted to my Archer 2.

I'm looking for advise on which new monitor to choose. I need something that is highly visible in direct sunlight.

I look forward to hearing what others use and or recommend!  

Thanks!!

Eric

Hi Eric,

If you can, go to NAB or Cinegear and check out monitors in person. Cinegear is outside, so you'll have a better chance of seeing how they perform in daylight. Also possible at a rental house - ask them nicely (and maybe bring cookies) if you can check out a few different monitors one day in their parking lot. Personally, I settled on the smallHD 703. It can be blindly reflective when angled directly at the sun, but has otherwise been wonderful for day exterior work. I'm still exploring solutions to solve the reflectivity (custom cut anti-reflective glass being one). 

Happy flying!

Thanks Lisa and Axel for your input! I will check out the 703. I have a 702 bright monitor I use as an external camera monitor. I like the Transvideo, but yes very over priced.

In the lower price end I got Must HD 7inch HyperBrite, shot outdoors and can be seen clearly, I usually ask for a small flag to grips to work around reflexivity. It comes with a braket for tilting, sunhood, v-mount plate, sdi in and out.

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
