Color Production Monitor

http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...#goto_itemInfo

I need help with lighting my scenes, better framing, focus, ect. The viewfinder on my XL1s just isn't doing it. I think this monitor is pretty good. If anyone has any alternatives for less $ I'd appreciate the suggestions. I think this is a good one though. Also, besides this, what do I need to get it to work. Just an RCA to BNC cable from the back of my XL1s to the monitor?

Thanks,
Bryan

This JVC will get the job done, Bryan. It looks like a good value, although note that its resolution is modest (300 lines). Like all such monitors, video connection is indeed made via a BNC connection. If you have an MA-200 you can cable straight into its BNC jack. Otherwise, yup, you'll need an adapter.

Do RCA to BNC cables exist, or is there like a powered adapter that has to exist between them like for my XLR connections and my MA100?

That cable will work, although it's pretty long. If you have access to a Radio Shack you'll find RCA-BNC adapters for about $2 ea.

No, there's no power involved.

Only the BNC and SVHS are video inputs. The BNC is really the most practical connection from a camera.
