Coming from a video background, I've nearly always used waveform displays to judge my exposures and I loved having that feature on the AF100. Since the FS700 doesn't have it, can anyone recommend a small portable monitor with the waveform display feature? I'm still having trouble reading histograms correctly.
Being so used to waveform monitors, I keep forgetting that brightest areas on histograms are always on the right. I'm curious why Sony chose the histogram (usually a DSLR feature) instead of a waveform display to measure exposure on the FS700.
Thanks in advance.

The new Marshall line of field monitors have the waveform feature. V-LCD56MD, V-LCD70MD, or the V-LCD90MD.

The standard in the pro market has been the TVLogic vfm-056wp. It has great resolution and brightness for its size can be powered by various battery options and has many features you would come to appreciate. In full disclosure I sell these units and depending on your location can possibly provide a unit to demo / test. As for why Sony didn't provide a waveform option I am not certain but suspect that a waveform is expected to be very precise and trying to draw the wf on a small LCD screen can prove problematic. I have seen many people under or over expose too far due to a wf with limited precision. Best of luck in your final decision. If I can be of any assistance please drop me a line.John Fishburn
