Field Monitor for watching live unsqeezed GH4 Anamorphic shoot

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've been experimenting with shooting anamorphic video on my GH4 in 4K photo mode, using a Rectimascop 48/2x adaptor.

 

The more I shoot, the more I see the need to monitor the unsqueezed video in real time, for better control of composition and focus.

 

Can anyone recommend an HDMI field monitor, 5" to 7", with the ability to stretch the video width x2?

 

Many thanks,

 

Izhar

Hey Izhar 

 

I had the same concern and was on a similar budget. 

After some research on youtube / vimeo and some forums I concluded to buy this

Its on its way to me now

I need one of these too, for both anamorphic shooting and focus assist.  Finding it difficult to really nail focus on these old manual lenses.

 

Although the focus peaking feature on the gh4 and magic lantern should help you much more even when you're focusing just with the camera LCD.

IMO it's better than what you can get in the cheaper monitors because you can customise the color and threshhold. 

You can even rack focus lol. Canon should be paying them really. 

 

There's heaps of stuff on youtube, I had a look to get a link for you but can't find a really good example.

That mustHD actually looks like it might be a really solid choice.  I'm having a hard time finding its full specs though, do you know if it does a 2x squeeze for aspect ratio?  I saw a video of someone flipping through settings, but didn't think I saw an exact 2x but rather a 2.35:1.

Ok so bad news first. Scale mode on this thing only supports 16:10, 16:9, 15:9, 1.85:1, 2.35:1 and 4:3 

With 2.35:1 being the closest to 2x but still far off and I don't think you can customize these settings at all. 

 

Good news is this monitor is great otherwise. Feels a little bit plasticky but nothing too brittle or annoying. 

Screen itself is good and really like the hood design. Only tested on my 60D so I will do a proper review once I get to plug it into a newer camera. Hope this helps in the meanwhile.

      FOR SALE: Moller 32/2x Anamorphot
      Anamorphic Adapter
      In Good Condition 6/10
      $500
      Cosmetic: 6
      Has scratches and wear on outer body. But none of the cosmetic imperfections affect the over-all lens performance. No dents or damage to the lens body that affect performance. The focus is a little stiff, but nothing a tune up and grease won’t fix. The front focus gear does need to be lubed, greased and the front element could be dialed in with a focus chart for sharper image. But the lens functions properly.   
      Optical: 7
      Has a scratch on the front element and cleaning marks on the rear element. It also has wear on the inner housing that gives veiling when hit with direct beam of light. I don’t have all of the equipment or time to tune up this lens but I can send tests shots if requested. 
       
      Notes:
      Very unique Moller 32/2x black non-coated version. Old lens with imperfections, but the imperfections of this lens make it very unique and give it a very unique character.

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.

      Hey all, I'm looking to shoot a narrative short film with controlled lighting early next year and am thinking about shooting it on my original BMPCC...
      I know, I know. No 4K, terrible low-light, and horrible battery life. But if 1080p was fine, controlled lighting throughout, and an external battery solution, is it better for me to use the original and cancel my 4K pre-order? I could use the money saved to pay for an additional cine prime/actually pay actors a decent wage...
      What would be the advantages in this case of using the 4K over the original?
