cinema5d.. where most of the posts are speculation from before the camera was released

any current info/experience/links welcome..

I know it works with my SD steadicam pilot monitor - by you cant focus without zooming (ie prefocus check only)

Manhattan LCD has been pretty popular with the DIY guys. They have this 8.9" for example for $599. HDMI, 1080p, 1080i, etc.

I'm interested in the Ikan 5.6" model, but don't think it is on the streets yet.

I would get this Marshall (http://www.lcdracks.com/monitors/v-lcd70p-3gsdi.html)with Peaking Filter

Expensive!

I wonder if it's worth it?

Have you used one yet?

I have Peaking Filter/Focus assist on my JVC HD...it does help in studio situations

Yes I'll check out the 5D forum!

The reason I was asking is because I get these emails from Digital Juice. Right now they have a special where they are selling the ikan V8000HDe for $545, normally $795 it says...

So even though the hdmi downconverts slightly, would the workflow be getting the ikan, and finding an HDMI to component cable and hoping for good resolution still?

http://www.manhattanlcd.com/product_p/7005.htmLooks good in terms of price compared to the Marshall and iKan but $150 for a battery seems steep.

I would rather spend $150 on a battery set-up that last hours and I can use it for just about everything, than batteries for $75 that only work for my monitor and nothing else (and don't last as long).

I traveled last year with the Ikan and shot with the Canon XH-A1. Ikan was sony batteries, which I had two, but that was all they supported.

I just cut a quick vid demonstrating the Marshall. Shot it with the 5D Mark II. Depends on the kind of shooting you do as to which one you might want. The IKAN 5.6" (http://www.ikancorp.com/pages/monitors/V5600/index.html) is sweet for all around - light enough to keep in your bag all the time - even with a battery. The Marshal is nice for run and gun quick focusing with peaking/pixel to pixel. In studio, I'm using the IKAN 17" HDMI (http://www.ikancorp.com/pages/monitors/V17/index.htm) - full raster 1920x1080.

any links to buy the marshall?

Just did a music video today with the 5D mkII. I also had the HVX200 there. I only ended up using that for camera for four 60p shots. The 5D mk II was unbelievable - especially being able to control the f stop by slightly twisting the lens.

For the HDMI version with a Panasonic battery plate, you're looking at less than $1000 in the DVcreator's DVeStore. http://www.dvcreators.net/marshall-electronics-7-lcd-monitor/
Use the coupon code "take5"

That's a good deal! My marshall was much more than that and is feeling very dated..

It's arm is the one they sell on the website (Bogen). it's kind big and heavy. The rails set-up looks like Red Rock. not sure about the FF

The 5dmkII has a HMDI output, but unfortunately it reverts to VGA resolution while recording. Not enough horsepower to record, compress, and output full-resolution at the same time.

This post kind of got glossed over with no responses, but it seems like a relevant point. Doesn't this fact make it somewhat pointless to get an HD monitor for a MKII? Or do you get full HD output when it's NOT recording and people fell like that's all they need?

It's a drag that it does this, depending on what you shoot it may not be much of an issue. Sit down interviews for example. For me, runnin' n' gunnin', I use the Composite out. It does not get stretched low rez look when you hit record. Using the Marshall, I set up my shots and review shots in HD. If I'm constantly moving, I go Standard def composite and use the Red Peaking for focus.

Thank you. Marshall has updated the "Battery Compatibility" section of the product page. Click it to expand and see pics and model numbers of supported batteries. http://lcdracks.com/monitors/v-lcd70p-hdmi.html

the monitor is light enough to go to hot shoe adapter as well
