    Talking about the Sound Devices PIX:
    What about the screen quality? Can it be used as a field monitor?
    I have used an Atomos Samurai once and the quality of the screen was really bad.

    I would not use Pix240 screen for color or exposure judgement. only framing, and only if audio meters are not displayed as they overlay over top of frame. it is nice it has a screen, but it is not a useful monitor. no adjustments to the image except brightness. but considering everything else it does, eh, i'm not too upset.

    I got one, it works great for offline format. Reads the epic's metadata and tc.

    No, off angle viewing is horrible. For framing, it is OK, but I still wouldn't Count on it.

    I used the PIX on a low budget feature in Italy, and it essentially served as the director's monitor (we didn't have the budget or crew to manage a 17")...as a panel, it's far from the ideal (fairly washed out, no focus assist or exposure tools), but as a basic video tap / framing tool, it will suffice. One added bonus is the director/scriptie, etc can check playback without tying up the camera.
    Between the great things we cannot do and the small things we will not do, the danger is that we shall do nothing.

  7. #287 Epixa... 
    Here is a fully operational Epixa shooting rig that I built for a little test...



    Cute huh? It's got prores/DNX-HD on board and is about the same size as a stock Alexa
    It just uses a slightly modified Zacuto rail piece to connect the pix, very solid too, no problem for handheld etc.

    Evin - how good is the resolution of the PIX240 screen? Could it be used as a focus-puller's monitor?

    Cheers,

    I'm not Evin, but IMHO it's not good enough for that, just OK for framing.

    My Red is called Vertov after a Russian avantgarde filmmaker, a pioneer in modern cinematography, a true revolutionary who later suffered under Stalin's bureaucracy.
