LCD picture quality

When you are looking through the LCD monitor, is that the exact same quality image that is being recorded?

Thanks

Tell you what, you get a better idea of what is being recorded by actually looking at the reality in front of you! That's for the LCD. Now the eyepiece - that's another story. I find the eyepiece rather spiffingly good! - I'd liked to have an option to make the E.P. b/w though - neat idea folks?

Grazie

Ok, I just wasn't sure...

So the quality is better if your say, watching it on your computer?

Yup! I've done some 3rd/2nd Stringer work for a Pro Videographer. He's very pleased with my work. In fact, in the final edit, the majority of the "daylight" work is mine. And on some occasions it actually saved the day for him.

Apart from the usual positive technical reasons, here are some other reasons why this cammy cuts the mustard:
  • It's small enough to not be "intrusive"
    It's pro-looking enough to be regarded as a serious piece of kit
    Using the cammy, I "appear" to be another one of the family/friends
    Can get close to the action in the church
    Mix it with the dancing and celebrations
