John from Magiqcam suggests the Marshall lcd monitors, any experience with these out there?

I have both the 5.6" and the Pro 4". By far, the 4" is better than my 5.6".

Or should I say, would you like to buy my 5.6"?

I'm not a huge fan of the Marshalls myself. I like the Nebteks, though.

Who carries the Nebteks? Better in outdoor lighting?


Thanks,
Tim

The Nebteks look pretty good. Are you using the Nebtek? If so how's it for balancing? Looks like the battery mount off to one side.

Don't these things sit in an enclosure to reduce light?

Does Nebtek make an enclosure? I would think they're pretty
useless without one, although mandatory for a stabilizer.

I noticed a Steadicam Jr. out on ebay, the guy was using a 7" Marshall stating it was great in daylight.

I have a 5" that was used in the back of a car headrest that I put
on the battery holder on the XL1s, wouldn't it work better to have a monitor there rather than three feet below you? Problem is it is not battery powered, does anyone know where I can get a 12v battery pack for something like this? Maybe Anton/Bauer?

By "enclosure" do you mean sunshade? My experience has been that simple wraparound sunshades don't do an awful lot to cut down light. Until you get to the diagonal-type Hoodman enclosures, which aren't practical for stabilizer use.

The reason not to have the monitor up by the camera is that you have better peripheral vision of where your feet are going if the monitor is lower. Also, if you boom the camera up you won't lose sight of the monitor (this is a similar reason as to why it's good to have an outboard monitor rather than use the camera's flip out screen if available; when you pan to the right, you would lose sight of the flip out screen).

Hi - Just thought I'd ask - Magiqcam owners, what all did you need to get going? What I mean is that I want to get all the necessities before it arrives. I'm picking up a Panasonic 7" monitor but I'm not sure how it will mount ?? And if I should
power it with Canon batteries or something separate. Anything
else needed or recommended? Thanks
