A very important thing for a field monitor is battery consumption, which invalidates most CRT types.

Do you know which LCD screen computer models are DC powered and have S-video or component video inputs?

Here in L.A.

There's ALWAYS AC power.....ALWAYS.

You can be in the desert......you can rest assure that we will have generators out there.

If we lose AC power....everything stops anyhow. SO the DC powered options are not that important.
Therefore, I stopped configuring my gear based on AC vs. DC. Now, I get AC stuff for performance and reliability.

P.S.
hell, even shooting a moving car scene on a process truck has AC power! lol

really Shannon ... wasn't that the state that was buying power from Mexico a few months ago ?? I mean , amigo , I live in Mexico - and if you gotta buy mexican electricity, you're in a world of trouble !! of course you're right about generators - I've got alittle Honda that does the trick- runs a monitor and a few lights but dc - I'm still interested. By the way , have you seen the little 15:9 480 line , dc powered 7" Lilliputs ? They go for less than 3 bills on ebay direct from HongKong. i'd love to hook one up to a z1 and see how that looks - what ? about 150 lines better than the oncamera lcd ? thanks Kurth
