Too bad it doesn't have HD-SDI as an input.

The component/composite output of the EX1 is poorly placed where the operator's right hand bumps against the connector. With the connector being so small, it's only a matter of time before it's damaged.

agree. but adding hd-sdi would probably add a lot of dollars to the price, and for me, not entirely needed at this time. also agree that the output is poorly placed, but such is life.

I think this is going to be a great monitor. It's built like a tank. The guys making this came over with it to make sure it worked with our RED, so I got to check out the prototype. Good stuff. They should sell a TON of these at that price. I'd get one myself, but we already have a Panny LH80. I will say, this one is much smaller than the Panny...and much lighter.

How did the picture look compared to the lh80?
The 80 is a step down from the Panasonic 900 monitor. Is this new monitor as good as the Panny 900?
Thanks
