Does anybody own this monitor?  The AC on my show now has the first version of this monitor and it's pretty decent.  I compared it side by side with the SmallHD 703 and viewing straight on it's comparable, but off angle the TVLogic doesn't hold up as bright as the 703.  Also the Mk1 of the F-7H got quite warm to the touch after having it on board the studio camera while on the stage, whereas the 703 felt barely above skin temperature.  Did they make any changes to the screen for the Mk2 and cooling?  Will the F-7H Mk2 hold up to outdoor use in the heat of summer?

Input would be appreciated.  Thanks

Hi Michael, 

I don't know if Jae from TV-Logic checks the forum but he can confirm what I'm about to say. I own a Mk1 F-7H that I use on my studio builds, I love it. As far as I understand the screen and the outer casing/heat sink is the same on the Mk2. I used the Mk1 in the heat of summer outdoors without any problems but it did get super hot, almost as much as the Teradek Tx and RX. The DP of the show I'm on now has a Mk2 and he said he had the same experience. Getting that hot can't be good over time but the screen is so damn good.

I also have a 703 and I have to say I like the TVLogic colours and contrast better. But the 703 is easier to use. 

Cheers,
