Good Monitor Choices for Mavo LF
June 12, 2019 at 12:04 am #5307
Just purchased a Mavo Lf! Waiting for it to come in. I’m looking at getting the Atomos Shogun 7 as the monitor since it can display so much dynamic range. However, I wanted to know which monitors can take the full 6k signal from the Mavo LF? I know the KineMons are only HD in resolution but can monitor even when recording in the high resolutions on the Mavo cameras like 4k, 5k, and 6k. How do I tell which third party monitors can (regardless of the resolution of the actual screen) accept a 6k signal? Thanks in advanceJune 12, 2019 at 6:18 am #5309
Hi Luke! Welcome to the KineFamily! Not an expert in monitors but here is an excerpt from their User Manual. I might be wrong but seems like their HDMI only send HD signal. No idea about the KineBack as I don’t own one. Cheers!
Please choose a recommended EVF or Field Monitor with Video, 3G-SDI (Not HD-SDI) or HD digital input, and connect the input port of EVF or monitor to output port of the camera body with a high quality cable. Suggestions for monitoring:
1) KineMON 5″ Full-HD Monitor: with the Kine Video Cord our monitor gets both power supply and video signal through the same cable. There are many appropriate accessories available to firmly mount the monitor according different needs.
2) SmallHD Monitors 500 series and 700 series: can be connected to the HD Type-A port and two 3GSDI ports on the KineBACK-W.
3) FSI broadcasting/cine monitor or other monitor with 3G-SDI port as director monitor or DIT monitor. For the current firmware, HD Type-A port is only for video monitoring, but SDI port also supports audio signal: output audio during the playback of files.
CAUTION Connect the monitors to the camera by HD video cable or SDI cable (75Ω) before they are turned on, and please also pay attention to the direction of the D-TAP cord. NOTE Please choose the LP-E6 Battery Coupler (7.4V) when using the 3rd-party monitors. NOTE The video output is only for monitoring, not recording. The monitoring FPS is different from CMOS imaging sensor FPS; therefore, the external recorder cannot get the clips with the same FPS and resolution as CMOS imaging sensor.June 12, 2019 at 3:33 pm #5315
Thank you so much Gualbert! That makes more sense. I’m fine with monitoring in HD, as long as I can still monitor while shooting in 6k. Which monitor do you use?June 13, 2019 at 12:52 am #5317
I’m stuck with the KineMON 5″ for now 🙁 But it’s borderline “unusable” for bright light outdoors conditions, end up missing the focus sweet spot most of the time… Thinking about getting the SmallHD Focus 7″ as I heard good things about it but most important of all it has a nice waveform function! 😉 Cheers!
