Fieldmonitor for HDR, and practical tips for shooting HDR.

Hello, folks. My first post here. Looking forward to learn much, and hopefully be able to contribute myself.

To get right to business. What field monitor do you recommend to film UHD (3840x2160) and HDR with Sony FS7? And do you know of any good blogs, articles ext. that teach HDR-production?

Some background:
We are starting a natureproject where we will film mostly in the winter. The client want 4K/UHD to be futureproof and HDR. So we have landed on Sony FS7 as our main camera and we are shooting in 3840x2160, 50p, 10-bit, 4:2:2, Slog.
But our knowledge of HDR are for the moment very little, and I am in the process of learning and gathering information. There are some technical articles around, but not much practical experience it would seem. At least not that I have found yet.

Shoot Slog3 and use the WFM function on your FS7 to expose. No field monitor required.

The rest is mastering in post, and then actually having an audience who has appropriate displays to view it.

Thanks, Gary
I already use the WFM-function. But this is not ideal, and I miss the oppurtunity to monitor what we are filming while we are filming it. Would not monitors like Atomos Inferno or SmallHD Ultrabright 503 be something? Any experience with these?

Search Doug Jensen and Alister Chapman. They are the two most authoritative trainers on the FS7 that I know of.

Re: Fieldmonitor for HDR, and practical tips for shooting HDR.

A couple months ago, Art Adams posted a useful series of articles on PVC. Art's a good DP (and let me disclose casual friend of mine). This series won't answer all your questions, but does provide some practical background and on-set & post info.

This is the first installment of a six-part HDR “survival guide.” Over the course of this series, I hope to impart enough wisdom to help you navigate your first HDR project successfully. Each day I’ll talk about a different aspect of HDR, leaving the highly technical stuff for the end.

Thanks much to Canon USA, who responded to my questions about shooting HDR by sponsoring this series.
