The menus are nicer to navigate and you don't have to worry about remember which 'gesture' does what to get which menu up. All that and then being able to record with a LUT baked into an image if you want makes it a much better choice in my opinion.

Atomos is also quieter with the fans, lighter, and even though the screen is the same size, the Atomos is physically smaller, although a little wider.
You were/are right. I bought the Video Assist 4K for my church and after using it extensively for 2 months I've believe that the Atomos line is just better in many ways. When I finally go to buy my own monitor I will be getting an Atomos Inferno.

Re: Has Anyone Used LS300 With External Monitor

I use an Atomos Ninja Blade with my LS300. I bought the Blade when I bought a Canon C100 Mk1 some years back. I sold the C100, kept the Blade and Zacuto C-Shooter rig and use it with my LS300. I primarily shoot HD and record HD to a 256GB SSD in the Blade. I record internally to SDXC 128GB cards as a backup to the Blade. I use the Blade's video scopes for setting exposure and color balance. I use the camera's LCD for focusing. I have user button 8 on the handgrip set for expanded focus and user button 7 set for focus assist. Attached is a photo of my rig.

Re: Has Anyone Used LS300 With External Monitor

Recently a client wanted everything recorded to rented Atmos Shogun Flames so I received some experience with the device. The Flames were connected by SDI to our cameras, a combination of LS300s and HM600s. Really, really nice recorders. If I get some more work I might get one.

However I ended up leaving the LCD open while filming the live events as accessing things like zebra stripes and focus assist was much easier with the function buttons on the body of the JVC cameras than the touch screen of the Flame which obscures the image while you are bringing up the menus. Not entirely convenient while filming an hour long concert.

The image is very nice but I was surprised how close it was the Feelworld monitor I posted a while ago in this thread. The same sort of saturated color with flesh tones. I didn't have time to do a side-by-side comparison but it struck me as a surprise.
