Marshall: Wait for the SDI version?

Guy-

I've been waiting for the Marshall SDI version for my EX1. It's been pushed back to the end of May, but I really need something now. Do you think I should still wait for the SDI or go with the HDA version? Will it make that much of a difference?

Thanks,
Alex

I'm also waiting for the SDI version for my EX1. Do you know if it can be powered using a Bebo Coco-EX and a p-tap cable? I'm just worried whether or not the Sony battery will be able to power the camera & the monitor at the same time... and for how long?

If you need it now, just get the HDA model and use component. Sony includes the cable in the EX1 box so it is a nicely bundled single cable right?
The difference between analog component and digital is only about 10% in real world viewing on a 7" display. However, being able to use a monitor today will improve your focusing and your color remarkably.

The monitor has a 4-pin XLR input 12V @ 3.3A - I don't see why the above solution would not power the Marshall.

That's great. So now I just have to sit and wait patiently... which is never my strong suit.

I just got an email from Robert Foster (Director of Sales @ Marshall) and he told me that the SDI version will be out at the end of May.
Is it really worth waiting for a SDI version or would the component be fine with my EX1?

I asked the precise same question in another thread (on 2 low-cost monitors) and got this response, which I am not sure I totally grok:

but... as the contrast ratio and brightness of all of these small monitors is poor it, it probably does not make a difference other than the convenience and professional look of a single sdi bnc connector.

Hi Justin,

Greetings from Washington State. You're just right over the border from us. If you plan on passing through down to Seattle, I have the HDMI/component version of the Marshall here for testing and in stock. Let me know if you have time to come down this way, it's a nice drive this time of year. Gorgeous out today. I'd be more than happy to let you take it out for the day attached to your EX1.
I'd say get the component version if you need it now. You'll be impressed. Just the red peaking function alone makes this monitor a valuable tool for HD work.

Sounds great!
I'm down in Seattle about every 7 weeks or so as my wife likes to go shopping in Bellevue. Next time I'm down, I'll definitely stop by and check out the Marshall.
Thanks!

the peaking sounds cool. Will it work for 5D2? It has no onboard peaking function so focusing is a PIA...

I must say even though the marshall has so many unique functions, I'm very tempted by the 720p of the Smallhd.com monitor. And at that price, I'm starting to lean more that way.

Sony battery series?

A quick question about the battery options: is the Sony B series battery the same one that EX3 uses?

Yes it is, they're the same batteries at the EX1 too.

Just checking: The Marshall monitor has 12v input. The Coco Battery adapter outputs 14.4v (according to B&H website). Will the monitor work okay anyway?

Wait for SDI

For those of you thinking about getting the non-SDI version of the Marshall monitor and you have an EX1 or similar SDI camera, WAIT!

I own an EX1 and a TV Logic monitor with SDI and it's such a breeze to connect using the BNC on the back of the camera and NOT have to fuss with the horrible placement and small hookup for the Component.

Also, you get audio out of the SDI and it's a more robust connection that's locked and won't fall out, AND, you have only one cable to run, so if you're using your camera on a crane/jib, it's a breeze once again to connect.

Just my 2-cents on the matter.
