    Most of the HDMI output cameras I've worked with exhibit some processing delay - usually between 2 and 7 frames.

    Set up a 'behind the scenes' shot with a second camera that shows your camera's lcd, external monitor and subject being photographed - and have then do some hand claps. Play back in an NLE to see how many frames apart the hand clap is. I was surprised how large some of the delays were. (Don't forget to try at different output resolutions!) And I was also surprised that two cameras of the same model would sometimes yield slightly different results.

    Yes I owned a smallhd focus 5 for a minute and I found the lag unmanageable and returned it. Iíll try the port keys see what that does

    Not sure how bad it is with the S1h, but all of my panny cams have had really bad hdmi port lag (on the camera side), so it didn't matter which monitor I used since nearly all of the delay was coming from the GH5, GH5s, etc.

    I didn't find the smallhd focus 5 to be meaningfully worse than my other monitors. It was the camera. The Focus 5 is perfectly fine on my blackmagic cams, for example.

    I prefer to shoot an iPad or phone showing full-screen free-run timecode. It is easy to pause play back and measure the exact delay just by subtracting one TC value from the other.

    Hey Paul, things are going well but I'm bogged down in the production of an FX6 master class. I'm really, really, looking forward to getting this project done so I can take some time off. It's like childbirth. If I really remembered how awful it was to do the last one, I'd never do another. We're hoping to get up your way this summer so we defiinitely need to get together if things are starting to get back to normal.
