Finally.. M2 & A1 footage.

Not great footage... just goofing around on a shoot yesterday. Also, poorly framed and focused cause the image was upsideodnw (need a Marshall monitor).

Anyhoo, I think it looks stellar on my HDTV. Like super 16.

It looks nice for a first time, Matthew. But I do understand your dilemma. I've been making some tests with the letus35A and it's hell to frame and focus upside down. I gotta get me a monitor.

Yeah... I mena, on my XL2 I had a lilliput 800X480 monitor which was awsome for framing and focusing, but when I connect it through BNC, the image is so freaking soft, it's impossible to focus. It HAD a VGA in so I coulda done component to VGA, but I removed it cause it was in the way.

I hear the marshall and nebtek monitors are quite good...


I also heard someone found a way to hack the HVX monitor to flip the image! Any chances on the A1...

Matthew, I see what you mean, even without an M2, focus can be tricky.

My new G1 kit should arrive in about three-days, including an HVA marshall monitor, (I don't have an M2 yet -one headache at a time). I'll let you know how the marshall fairs, (I'll also have a 17" Sony LMD HD-SDI for comparison). My hope is that the marshall 480 line model addresses the focus.

The marshall has mounting points on all four edges allowing upside-down mounting for flip.

Great looking footage. The shot between the cars looks almost surreal - like a model!
