Is there a way that I can turn my laptop into an external monitor? I can go from my pc to the tv but I'm wondering if I go can from my gh2 to INTO my PC- So I can view from my pc? Any other suggestions on something like this? I know the nexus 7 won't work for gh2. (I have an asus windows vista laptop and a macbook pro)

I think that the simple answer is no.  The HDMI connection of a PC graphics card doesn't accept incoming signals.  You could use the HDMI out on the GH2 to connect directly to a monitor or the AV out/digital to connect to a monitor/TV using the yellow/white/red connectors using the cable supplied with the GH2.

You should be able to monitor from HDMI input with a black magic intensity: http://www.blackmagi...ucts/intensity/

the only laptops that can do this are the Alienware M17x and above as they can literally receive an HDMI signal and display in front of you.  I did several photo shoots with this combo, but the colors weren't as good as the Nikon D4's LCD screen even after color calibrations.  

 

However, imo don't invest in anything atm.  In about a year the whole wireless wifi business, for photography, will be set in stone and improved as well as other cams following suit.  cables are too cumbersome

So if you guys had to go with one external monitor, for video, would it be the HD DP6? or  a Marshall monitor?
