Well well well, that might be bang on my US$250 ish price!

Not yet. But I;ve seen some tests on youtube and facebook and results range from significant improvement to no improvement at all ?
I wonder how much of the later is still caused by user error!

Being able to load your own 3D LUTs at that price point is impressive. Just wish we'd see monitors at this price point with waveform monitoring as well.
Your still talking like $800 for that, but I did see that they have a 5" version for those that want smaller.

They are OEM for Ikan, very good quality and customer service.
I might have to give them a try then, as the feature set looks very good given the price.
A YouTuber I follow (Curtis Judd) mentioned he would be reviewing one of their monitors soon. Having never heard of the company I looked them up, and they seem almost to good to be true for the price.
Has anyone used this monitor or one of the manufactures other monitors? Anyone ever heard of this brand, or is just like so many of the others a re-brand?

Too late for those 2 million viewers, in my opinion.
Honestly, if someone goes out and drops $2500+ on a camera based solely on the opinions of reviewers who have only had it for a few hours that's their own fault. Either then have no common sense, or they have more money than brains!

Things here are a hell of a lot different than where you live apparently. A lot of young people here have no money, or very little. No jobs that pay crap and not many that are even full time. No real benefits. I guess all the jobs went to where you live. The state I live in has the one of the highest drug overdose deaths in the United States. Mostly because of no long term hope of success for young people. I live in a College town and most are just wasting their time, and going thousands and thousands of dollars in debt on student loans to work at Mc Donalds, or Dollar General when they graduate. They could give a crap about a $10,000.00 Canon lens trust me.
I also live in a large College town 130k-ish, not counting the 40-60k of students. I deal with a lot of interns and young new hires and this video is pretty much pinpoint accurate, with regards to how they act.
However I disagree with him about how the companies and everyone else need to take care of them and help them. We don't need a nanny state, the 'kids' just need to learn life isn't always what they want it to be and that they need to deal with it and make the best of it they can.

I don't really want to be drawn by your trolling. I don't need to defend myself. It's my house and I can pick and choose who I invite into the community and who I consider bad for it, who should go. You aren't offering much either apart from snide anti-Andrew Reid sentiment, in my own living room and on my phone.
You can call it whatever you want. If I read what I think is hypocritical bs, then I'm going to call out who ever said it. I don't care who it is, no one gets a free pass.1 hour ago, Andrew Reid said:
You're spinning things and you know you are. This site is about learning information about the gear and filmmaking, so when I mentioned the rolling shutter within a day of getting my EOS R. you should thank me for it.
Now you are being somewhat disingenuous. You sell luts, and you have adds for them on every thread for them. The Forum and your articles (including the rants), drive page loads, and thus add views, it's SEO 101. So please don't try and act like your mother Teresa, or some benevolent parental figure who's just looking out for all of us
Yes the forum has educational benefits as just about every other forum on the net does, but you are not the sole person people learn from here. Personally I've probably learned more from other members than I have from you.1 hour ago, Andrew Reid said:
The other article about a completely different camera, that isn't even a review, with rolling shutter that isn't problematic, does not contain a rolling shutter mention - Tell me what's wrong with that. I can't see it.
I know it's a different camera. However i think you missed the point ( @jonpais, and mine ), you didn't mention RS, and now you are saying you didn't mention it because in your opinion it "isn't problematic".
DPR has a different view.
On our pre-production Z7, rolling shutter performance in the Super 35/DX crop region looks identical to what we saw on the D850 in both its full-frame and crop modes, which is impressive considering the Z7 is oversampling. We generally find this level of rolling shutter isn't too bothersome, mainly posing problems in fast pans and the like. Once you switch the Z7 into full-frame 4K mode, the rolling shutter effect is unfortunately magnified, and is more noticeable in casual shooting.
Should DPR publish and article on their take on your "initial thoughts"?

So whilst @jonpais is calling EOSHD "fake news" and telling me how to run the site, perhaps he should realise one thing. I am a bit disappointed by his remarks. All the squabbling on the forums over the past few months from him and the Sony fanboyism in every subject, treating some threads like his own private inbox for chats and arguments, all leave a bitter taste for me because he's a long-time member. He seems to have gone from productive posting in the early days of the forum about Panasonic, up through being rewarded by being promoted to a mod, back down to being a non-mod due to bad behaviour, and now he's cruising for a bruising or even a ban. I just find that incredibly self destructive.
O please Andrew how are you any better?
Its seems almost any time you think someone has slighted you, you lash out with self destructive negative behavior. As @Drew Allegre mentions the BM fiasco is a good example. Not to mention what I quoted above looks like nothing more than a tit for tat, attempt to make @jonpais look bad.
IMO, you deserved to be called out what amounts to a "take down" piece about other reviewers not doing a good enough job, when you yourself didn't mention it in your initial piece/review either.

You don't even mention rolling shutter in your review of the Z7.

All these vids on YouTube are all well and good but too many of them are beholden to the manufacturers.
I think it's more like beholden to the views/likes of the worlds Lemmings.
Theoria comes off as an a-hole who feels the need to take a shot at whoever is better off then he is. The whole stick it to the man BS if you know what I mean. Imo, the only thing he is good at is presenting/reviewing gear that's rarely talked about, like tripods.

But they are legally required to give air time to extreme nut cases on both sides of the argument.
You have the far left propaganda and the far right UKIP propaganda on screen all at once! Isn't that impartial!?
That doesn't negate the fact that they can skew how the audience perceives a given individual or point of view, based on how a presenter frames questions or how a given editorial piece is edited.
For example several press outlets "selectively" edited footage when Christopher Morris got into it with a secret service agent!

We are talking about sensor readout, not shutter speed.
never mind, not worth it.

fps means a lot.
In order to get 60 frame per second (which is 1000 millisecond), the sensor readout/rolling shutter has to be minimum 16.7ms per frame (1000ms/60).
X-T3 4K 60P rolling shutter is exactly 16ms to meet the bare minimum.
For EOS R's 4K 30P cap, 33ms is the bare minimum.
who the hell shoots 60p at 1/60th?
last time I checked you wanted to be shooting at 1/125th, unless you wanted to deviate from the 180 degree rule for artistic reasons.

Wow there is a lot of misunderstandings around this issue I see.
Rolling shutter is not driven by shutter speed.
It is 100% how fast the sensor can read out the image line by line, top to bottom of the frame.
The shutter speed can be 1/100 or 1/1000 and the rolling shutter speed will be identical as will amount of distortion as the subject moves or the camera moves. The only difference is you will have less motion blur on the slower shutter speed shot.
you responded before i could update my post.
imo, your average videographer barely knows the difference between motion blur and RS.
10 minutes ago, androidlad said:
Actually, 60P forces the camera's to have lower RS, because 1000ms/60=16.7ms
in regards to RS/"motion blur" fps means nothing. For video RS is going to be driven primary by shutter speed/angle, and to a lesser extent how fast the sensor read time is.

Returning to the theme of the article, bloggers/youtubers are getting a free meal today, but I am not sure they are destroying the online-review world either. The final client just want something easy to value their next purchase. Now that megabytes on sensor is dead, this too-nice-to-be-true reviews are what the doctors ordered, unfortunately.
The real issue is that a lot of the top reviewers are gear stokers who cream their pants as soon as they get their hands on something new. They advocate pathetic and rampant consumerism.

Personal taste does exist, yes correct.
I don't like plinky plinky happy hipster music.
It's not a proper cinematic score or film soundtrack, it's just elevator music.
Give me Vangelis over The Music Bed any day.
Ha, Your talking to a guy born in the 70's who grew up a steel workers son. Imo millennial hipsters will be the downfall of human civilization, be cause they are weak overly sensitive, and can't handle any kind of adversity. I'm only partially joking. ?
If I was going to have to go "United Kingdom" bands I'd probably go with something more like.
- Iron Maiden
- Pink Floyd
These come to mind from the Highlander movie.
I'm considering this song for a personal passion project.

YouTube's music library is dire. It is fine as elevator muzak! How, in any way, does it compare to Radiohead for cinematic images?
Personal taste I guess, as I can't think of anything I would want set to radio head.

You can always go to YouTube’s audio library in your creator studio and find the copyright policy for each song you want to use.
This is what I do, or i use the free stuff, because a lot of times i don't want vocals anyway.

Even if I keep my crop camera thats $1-2k cheaper than the FF it still will cost me more if I want to replace my four lenses.
As the saying goes, "If you want to play, you got to pay!"

One thing I keep coming back to is how expensive crop sensor lenses are. FF really is a money saver due to years and years of lenses on the used market.
Crop Lenses are also more expensive than their FF counterparts, as they need to be better optically.
A good article with more information than i want to type.
Cropped vs. Full Frame Sensors. One needs to be extra careful when comparing MTF charts amongst cameras with different sensor sizes. For example, an MTF curve at 30 LP/mm on a full frame camera is not equivalent to a different 30 LP/mm MTF curve on a 1.6X cropped sensor. The cropped sensor would instead need to show a curve at 48 LP/mm for a fair comparison, because the cropped sensor gets enlarged more when being made into the same size print.
The diversity of sensor sizes is why some have started listing the line frequency in terms of the picture or image height (LP/PH or LP/IH), as opposed to using an absolute unit like a millimeter. A line frequency of 1000 LP/PH, for example, has the same appearance at a given print size — regardless of the size of the camera's sensor. One would suspect that part of the reason manufacturers keep showing MTF charts at 10 and 30 LP/mm for DX, EF-S and other cropped sensor lenses is because this makes their MTF charts look better.
